How to install a G&R lift kit in a 1990 Carry

    Whoo-hoo new tires, wheels and a G&R lift kit for my Carry! We're one wheel/tire short due to FedEx losing it somewhere along the way, but G&R said 'no problem' - we'll have another one on the way in a jif :D

    The G&R lift kit was really easy to install - I was done in about 2 1/2 hours.

    Here is a complete write-up of the installation with lots of pictures.

    The FedEx guy brought the missing tire and my lug nuts today - wow - Saturday delivery! This afternoon or tomorrow I'm going to do a trial fit of the tires/wheels. I know the wheels are correct because I tried one before I realized I only had three tires and no lug nuts. Thanks G&R for taking good care of your customer!

    Thanks for making it a sticky Keith - hopefully this will inspire others to spend some money to keep the economy going ;-)

    Thanks for the write up on this! as for the carlisle alltrails (23x8x12) they will fit onto
    a factory 12" rim, you just need to find a tire guy that will do it for you!!!

    Great wright-up! I had no idea where to start, and your info made it a snap. G&R was great too. I requested info, and they called right away.
    Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to align the front end.
    And, get the signal lights to work. No flashers, no signal blinking lights anywhere; but I thing all the bulbs are good. Swapped a few bulbs around and none were blown. Cycled the emergency flasher switch several times and changed nothing. Flasher relay? Fuse?

    Thanks again,

    Hi Greg - glad you found the how-to useful! We've had no obvious issues as a result of the lift. Our Carry is still truckin' along and still a valuable ranch hand. I guess I should update my signature to add 50 miles to the odo reading ;).

    Can't help you with the electrical problems. Buy the Danko manuals at Lulu if you don't have them and run the issue down.

    Many Thanks....

    Many, many thanks John on your excellent write up and pics......I did not install a G&R onto a Suzuki but instead did a Badgerland Lift onto a Hi Jet but the info was spot on, very informative and made the task a whole lot easier.

    You're quite welcome! Our little Carry is still going strong and is a valuable ranch hand!

    Thanks for the pics! Just received my lift and wasn't sure how the blocks are supposed to be oriented! Wondering about weather or not to use the springs that ive already purchased ???
