Installing spacers to increase ground clearance on Hyundai Santa Fe TM

Contents of the material

Why do crossovers need to increase ground clearance?

Real frame SUVs, which can also be repaired at the LFA MFC, most cannot boast of the handling and comfort of conventional hatchbacks and sedans. At the same time, the low seating position and the corresponding driving sensations in conventional four- and five-door cars do not satisfy all car owners. That is why manufacturers decided to release something in between on the market in the form of crossovers. Unfortunately, most of them turn out to be completely unsuitable for driving over rough terrain. It gets ridiculous that the ground clearance of some models does not exceed 150 mm, while for others it barely reaches 180 mm. In this case, driving onto the average curb near the house becomes an insurmountable task. Just to the curb! Below is a list of crossovers, increased clearance in MFC LFA which should be made a mandatory after-sales service:

  • Mini Countryman
  • Infiniti EX
  • Cadillac SRX
  • Honda CR-V
  • Mercedes GLA
  • Volvo V40 Cross Country

As for Santa Fe, then nameplate ground clearance is about 180 mm is not entirely true and it is not difficult to catch an obstacle with the bumper or simply sit on the bottom while overcoming bumps due to the long wheelbase. So installing spacers to increase ground clearance is an extremely useful service!

Dangerous tuning methods to increase ground clearance

As for air springs, high-profile tires and oversized wheel rims, these are the most expensive tuning tricks for increasing the ground clearance of the Santa Fe, which, in addition to being expensive, worsen the safety characteristics of the car in the form of:

  • changes in installation angles and suspension settings, which increase dangerous rolls;
  • such tuning involves the use of non-original spare parts, with the risk of breakdowns due to poor quality, severe with consequences in the form of an accident;
  • there is a real danger of losing the warranty as a result of changing the design of a new car.
