Hi all I’m new to this
just wanted some advice about lifting my D40 Navara I was looking at the front spacers and shackle kit (2 inch lift and I don’t want to lose the comfort) are they any good I don’t do a lot of off road driving just want a bit more clearance for when I do
Do I need to change the brake lines as well any help would be much appreciate

Welcome along.

I have moved your post to the D40 exterior modifications section. There is a useful sticky at the top of this section called "so you want to lift your D40".

What you have suggested will work ok without affecting the ride. It won't require new brake hoses.

It won't make a huge difference off road, but does give you the option to fit larger tyres (which will make more of a difference)

Hi Geoffsnook
After putting the lift in did you have to change any other suspension parts ?
Only asking as when I rang to book it in for a wheel alignment they want me to change upper arms and other parts
Thanks for your time

But you can get a camber kit though cant you or is that for more than a 2 inch lift ?
i was told that I won’t need a camber kit for a 2 inch lift but I will find out today as it goes in for a wheel alignment

Took my car in to day they said they couldn’t get the camber right ( I think it’s camber) top of tyres are sticking out a little can’t see by eyes they recommend I change top control arms to adjustable ones
