Looking forward! Keep us posted for the lift kit.
And there's that. Mods are not super popular here it seems.I knew after reading all the negative posts about every single thing that this would be the wrong group to show this to. To each their own.
Truxxx is looking into developing lift kits for the Acadia lambda platform and I would like to know how much interest there is out there for a couple more inches of ground clearance. I am the chief engineer at Truxxx, so you're talking to the guy that will be able to put a kit through. Holler back and show some interest, and give me reassurance that a kit like this will be moving off the shelves. :thumb:
or men subservient to their wives and make all the mods their wife demands, or folks like me that find the Acadia a very nice vehicle for getting from point A to point B but would rather spend mod dollars on their toys.You have to understand the group here. Soccer mom's, maybe some Dad's that are abused by their wives. Or just don't have the permission to do what they want to the family car.....
I wouldn't think a 2" level or lift would change much in the driveline angle. Since most of the drivelines now are CV axles, besides the AWD that does have a drive shaft. I don't see needing a 4-6" lift for an Acadia that is FWD, maybe AWD, but you never know what people want to do! Would be interesting to see it.Sometimes mods don't work out real well - even dealer-installed ones. I drove a Bronco work vehicle once that was purchased new already lifted about 4 inches. The rear u-joint broke before I got out of the neighborhood. Found out it wasn't the first time it happened. Seems someone didn't adjust the driveline angles to compensate for the lift when they put the differentials back on it. When people discuss lifting an Acadia, I wonder if they will face similar problems with this car's driveline package.
The half-shafts are a lot shorter than the Bronco's driveshaft. As such, the angles on them would be greater for each inch of lift. I'm thinking that could result in premature wear of the CV-joints - they only travel so far.I wouldn't think a 2" level or lift would change much in the driveline angle.
