done a lift on 06 crv of 2" and its just not the lift you need. youll need adjustable camber kit and bolts for the tires as well. you can find a 3" lift to. and it will allow for 235/75/r15 to be run. with .5 wheel spacers. and maybe a little rubbing. if you have old struts and springs. the biggest lift you can get without a kit is. I have 1.5" they are just a shock spacer. but they will allow for you to other then that you will need fender rolling and things like this to get higher. and I run 215/75/r15 and no rubbing. and between the lift and the tires i got about 2.25 in lift on my crv
Last spring, I lifted my wife's 2014 CRV using 20mm spacer blocks (which lifts 30+ mm / 1.5" in reality). Lift any higher using larger size spacer blocks and it over stresses suspension moving parts. For higher lifts, recommend using performance lift kits - that use re-calibrated geometry parts. Especially on its front steering parts as well...
Note: Next time, I would install 20mm on its front and perhaps 25mm/30mm on its rear.
For low cost spacer blocks, surf ebay and/or amazon. They are low cost and most folks can install in their own driveway - like I did. Afterwards, remember to get a auto shop to do wheel alignment afterwards.
For my wife's minor lifted CRV, there's no change with its steering behavior. Its simply slightly higher off the ground - which is much gentler on my bad back. Smiles.
Yes. I hear you on the "bad back" thing. When we bought "my vehicle" (if wondering, our 2014 CRV is my wife's run-about vehicle), I walked up to the auto sales guy, held my pointer finger at my bum level and said "I want a vehicle at that seat height". The guy laughed and said, yup. Over age 60 requirement. LOL!
If you use Google and search of mm to inches conversion calculator, you'll find that 30mm lift (using 20mm blocks) is around 1.25" lift. 1.5" lift at end of A-Arm distance sounds very little lift height but it feels much better on my back. Smiles.
If wondering, using 30mm block in rear will lift 40mm - estimated 1.75-2" lift. This would be the max I would recommend for the rear. Front has max of 20mm blocks (for a 30mm lift result). Remember that spacer blocks are added at top of each shock mounts and at its 1/3 position of its A-Arms. Thus, outer a-arm lift distance is higher than the block's thickness.
For me, 4 x 20mm spacer blocks wasn't for the "lift look". It was a low cost DIY install to make my bad back happy. Next time, I would install 30mm in rear and keep 20mm in the front. Thus, giving it a more level stance look.
1.5" would be good. Gas mileage hit ain't a big deal since I only get 22 highway out of the Mustang lol. While it's nice getting nearly 30MPG out of the Honda, a 1.5" lift would also be nice in some cases. The new AWD CR-V is up to 8.2" of ground clearance which is pretty good.
Im looking to get new wheels and re use my winter tires i currently have.
The winter tires are 235/65/18 just as the stock CR-V 18" wheel. So...
Since the stock wheels are 18x7.5 +45 i was wondering if i could get 18x8 +45 wheels with the stock tire size. Will the wider wheels rub...
Just wanting to post 4th gen. Crv on H&R lowering springs finally got installed. Mine is AWD I did notice comparing with FWD their seems to be more of a even drop front and rear with my AWD front a little higher than the rear maybe this has something to do with the AWD having a rear differential...
I just noticed this afternoon my 2001 Honda CR-V has a noticeable shimmy or wobble when driving around 40-50 mph. It feels like ti wants to go back and forth, not a lot but I can feel it. I have not looked much yet, did look at the tires which "look" ok, but did not check pressure yet but that...
You have to be a member at CR online in order to see all the nitty gritty details. But I thought it would be valuable to paste the top level conclusions from CR for 2020 in tires.... since Tires are ALWAYS a passionate topic of discussion in our forum. :)
