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.

Absolutely thrilled with this kit. My Atlas now looks like it should, drives like stock and gets thumbs up everywhere I go. Outstanding value and a superior product. If you're on the fence, don't even think about it anymore. You won't regret it. Thanks Forge!
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!
Now my Atlas rides at the right height. Looks amazing. Quick and easy delivery as well

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.
