With the release of the VW Atlas line up from Volkswagen comes the desire to raise the vehicle for more ground clearance. Forge Motorsport has taken several vehicles through the testing process to determine the maximum lift while still giving the vehicle a factory ride. We worked closely with SMITH VW to make this possible. Limited to the amount of room that the factory axle will move this kit provides a 1.50" total lift while leveling the front of the vehicle with the rear.
Easy bolt-on installation
Maintains factory ride quality
Increased ground clearance
Levels the front with the rear of the vehicle
No need to disassemble your struts to install
Kit contains 4 spacers (2 Front and 2 Rear) as well as mounting hardware for the front Strut-Spacer. Rear kit will reuse existing bushing insert.

Slide shows of my setup can be viewed here; last link shows the transformation:
My local shop installed the kit, and I've since upgraded rims and tires (Mandrus Atlas 6-spoke, 17x8" rims; Cooper Discover AT3-4S, 235/75R17).
I field tested the new setup on the Bennett Pass Road, an easy to moderate difficulty off-road trail in the Mt. Hood National Forest. I've also taken my Atlas off-road in Steens Mountains and Alvord Basin down in SE Oregon. The lift performed GREAT, and it makes all the difference in the rocky and rutted areas. The extra clearance with the lift and tires is awesome (~10.1" vs. 8")! I am REALLY pleased with the lift and what it has done to increase my off-road capabilities.
Now if you could design a boron steel skid plate, rock sliders, a winch bumper, and an extra gas tank, that would be awesome! Nice work, Forge!
