Ford Transit Lift Kit (Front Only)

  • $ 1,200.00

With the Terrain Ford Transit lift kit, your Ford Transit van will take you farther on your next overland adventure than you have ever gone before. The Terrain bolt-on Transit 2.5" suspension lift system provides clearance for up to a 33" tire*, allowing for higher ground clearance off-road, and helping you avoid obstacles on the trail when headed to your next camp.

The Terrain system retains the Transit's suspension and rake, keeping the OEM vehicle geometry, payload rating and ride quality unchanged.

All of the suspension lift system components are constructed of high-quality materials here in the USA, and are powder-coated for durability and corrosion resistance.

This product includes free shipping in the continental US.

Recommended tire size for stock wheels - There are many possible tire and wheel combinations that will work with this kit (see this excellent Four Wheeler article about measuring your rig for custom offroad wheel and tire sizes). Here are some possible combinations:

  • 235/85/16 as pictured on white Ford Transit van shown. This is the tallest tire that works on the stock wheel. Slight front and rear fender trimming is required to clear this size.
  • 245/75/16 will also work, slightly wider and about an 1" shorter. No fender trimming required. 
  • 245/75/17 will fit with 17" x 8", 5 on 160mm, 65.1 bore, Motometal MO970 wheel. 
  • 265/75/16 will fit with aftermarket wheels and front/rear fender trimming - like the Ultra Wheel "450 Toil" van wheels (these 16" x 6.5" wheels use 5 on 160mm spacing with +45ET backspacing, and require low-profile tapered lug nuts). The wheel width is .5" narrower than tire manufacturer specifications, so use at your own risk, but we have not seen any issues with vans set up this way. 

You can install this lift kit yourself with hand tools, or any auto shop or professional mechanic can do the job for you. Install time varies with tools and experience, but estimate around 4-5 hours for DIY install, 2-3 hours for professional install.
