    The SRX sits higher than any of my previous vehicles and I am enjoying the improved forward view. But I also needed easier ingress and egress the SUVs and many crossovers could not provide because they sat too high and running boards and step boards don't cut it with the elderly (76, 78, 87, and 89 years old) in my extended family. They can get into and out of the SRX easily, and the grab handles are a real plus. It is easier for my young grandchildren to get in and out too. The front bumper and chassis clearance works really well, avoiding the higher curb stops and the vehicle becoming a snow plow in the heavy stuff......8.5 inches clearance I believe.

    There is at least a percieved if not an actual safety advantage in my mind to the lower ride height: the propensity of vehicles with a higher center of gravity to roll over.

    So while you don't get quite the ride height you desire, you get a whole bunch of other things that are more than aesthetic. If it is aesthetics you desire the larger rims (20"-22") with a lower profile tire would give the appearance of a higher riding vehicle without the worry of fender and chassis interference, and your speedometer would still be accurate. For example, the SRXs with the 20" wheels use a lower profile tire to achieve the same tire/wheel diameter.

    Personally, I wouldn't start monkeying with the vehicle dynamics through suspension modifications and lift kits.
    Your speedometer will still be off with any tire and wheel size change. I was running 265/35/22 and depending on my speed I was off between 4-9 mph. Do the calculations online between your wheel and tire combo before and after at certain speeds. And I do believe the front lower control arms are slotted at the frame for camber adjustment.

    I know right. I can't imagine how ugly these things look lifted and cut for 26" wheels. Ruins the truck. My 22"s were writhing millimeters of rubbing the front bumper on a full turn.

    I saw that pure ignorance and the ghetto neighborhood it was in. I'm in Atlanta and even that was shameful to watch them ruin it. Hope it doesn't need timing chains cause all that money is in the suspension and wheels.
