G'day guys and girls
Can't seem to find a definitive answer on here or online on whether a 2 inch body lift is legal in NSW, and whether an engineer certificate is needed? Has anyone had any trouble with insurance, police, or the RTA?

I'm looking at buying hilux that has a 2 inch suspension lift, 2 inch body lift and is running 33s.

Thanks in advance


Cheers Leo
 
You need to check RTA rules but I think that the total 4" lift is too much. A 2" in suspension or body would be ok but not both.

Cheers mate,
I've been trying to find any relevant documentation but the rta website is a joke to put it lightly. I'll keep searching.

MY understanding is that 2" IS legal weather it be tyres or suspension anything after would require a engineers certification. hope this helps..

Cheers mate. I spoke to a guy who does engineering certificates the other day and he told me a 2" body or suspension lift and larger tyres to a 3" total is legal, he said over 3" needs a certificate. So I'll keep looking.
Cheers again for the input guys.
