    Need Help to Lift Rear Escalade ESV 3" inches

    I will be adding a hefty amount of weight on the rear due to add an audio system.
    I am already running on 30" inch rims with 255/30/30 (I had to do some cutting on the inner wheel well plastics)
    When I hit a hard bump I feel the tires scrape just a little bit against the inner plastic (have to do a little more cutting I guess)

    Overall, I want to lift my 2007 escalade esv 3" inches (if that's enough) in order to add the music system.
    If I do lift it 3" inches, with the weight added would it level back to around the same height as is right now?

    And is this lift good enough?

    Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks.

    PS: also, it says "Will not fit models with factory auto leveling option" and I have no idea if my car has that.

    I have the air lift 1000 in mine but, only air them up when I have the 6400# boat attached. It will raise it to level where the air system falls a little short with all that tongue weight. In regards to running it all the time aired up, it will ride rough.

    @Toddedge, So I can buy those (in the link I provided) Add a sound system that will be pretty heavy? It will lift up my truck from the rear?

    Yes, or you can convert to a coil spring without the air system and add 1"-2" spacers to get it to set level, based on the added weight. I've had both.

    The air suspension is supposed to self level, with the added weight. With my boat(800 pounds of tongue weight on the rear of the Escalade), the air system just can't pump it up enough. My dealer has checked it and said that all is well but, it isn't enough.

    Personally, with a car as nice as an Escalade, I'd go with full aftermarket air ride so you have 100% control.
