Default lift height ?

I have a 2005 Precedent that is currently stock with 18 x 8 1/2 x 8 tires and wheels. If I were to put a 6" spindle lift, 22 x 10 x 10 tires I would actually gain 8" of lift correct?

13 people have nothing to say?

The reason for my original question is that I would like to keep the top and still get it in the building.

You should be right,the tires may very a little. Check with the lift kit manufacture and the tire makers.

I thought if you lifted it 6 the way it sits it would be up 6 inches?.?.
Not sure if that's right

For every inch you go up in tire size you lift the vehicle half an inch. So if I go from a 18" tire to a 22" inch tire I have put a 4" taller tire on which should raise the vehicle 2".

I have a 6 inch lift kit and 23 inch tires and can drive into my shop. The shop has normal double doors the same size as house doors.

I guess it depends on what you consider a lift. the suspension lift will push the chassis and body 6 inches away from the factory location of your spindle thus allowing you to run a taller tire in order to increase your ground clearance. As stated, running a tire that is approximately 4 inches taller will move the lowest part of your cart (bottom of differential) 2 inches. The overall height at the fender wheel well will measure approximately 8" over factory vehicle height.

6" lift is 6". It doesen't have anything to do with tire size. Tire sise is 1/2" lift for every inch you increase tire size.
