Maybe a numb question but...With a 2 inch spacer do you gain close to 2 inches of ground clearance? That's the overall goal for me. A 2 inch spacer and 245's to gain almost 3 more inches to clear ruts stumps ect?

Hi all,

First post here. Bought the wife a new Sorento and am taking over her '03 XLT. I recently purchased these steel front leveling spacers on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01A9 ... UTF8&psc=1

After reading some posts here, decided to go ahead and get new stabilizer bar links. I will also be looking to put some blocks in the rear coils to prevent the liftoff described in this thread. My question is, can someone provide a link to a pair that will fit the 03 front wheel drive Escape? Amazon preferred but will take what I can get.

Thanks for your help!

Do a google search for rubber coil spring spacers. That's what I'd recommend putting in the rear. They are universal and inexpensive. Good luck!
