    What impact will a lift kit have on handling?

    it depends. for me, it actually improved my handling because higher spring rates coupled with shocks with better valving made for less brake dive and squat under acceleration and less body roll through corners. other things like upgrading sway bar bushings and end links can make it handle vastly better than stock

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    Mine has a little bit of lift and it's road manners are just fine. Both of them for that matter. It just depends how it's built and how it is planned
