Lifted nissan pair

Looking for the right lift kit for your 2003-2015 Nissan Titan can be overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make, including how much to lift your truck, what to look for in a lift kit, and more. This buyer’s guide has all the information you need.

How Much Should I Lift My Nissan Titan?

It depends on what you’re looking to accomplish with a lift. You can lift your truck from 2 to 12 inches with a lift kit. We suggest keeping it under 6 inches, though, because lifting your truck higher than that will entail more problems than it's worth.

  • If you want to level your truck, you can’t go wrong with a suspension leveling kit, which is basically a 2” lift for the front only.
  • If you want to lift your truck without doing a body lift, a 3” bolt-on suspension lift kit is the best choice.
  • If you’re ready to “go large” with your lift, get a 4” lift kit.
  • If you want to upgrade to bigger tires and boost your truck’s off-roading capabilities, a 6” lift kit is the way to go.

You don’t have to hire a professional to install a lift kit on your Titan as long as you have a commercial lift, basic tools, and a few hours. The process varies between kits, but the basic overview is:

  • Lift your Titan
  • Take off the wheels and make all the necessary modifications (according to the kit instructions)
  • Install a new set of wheels and tires (if applicable)
  • Have a local shop align your wheels
  • Set a reminder to re-torque your bolts after a few thousand miles
