I know other trucks with 4 corner air suspension have lift kit options for 4" over stock. Do we know or think it is possible to mod the suspension of the Cybertruck?
What about larger tires on the stock suspension?
I know changing the suspension or larger tires will drop the range of the batteries, but ICE truck owners have gone crazy with lifts and tires all the time with no regards to mileage.

Personally I am fine with 35" tires so I will leave it as is.

But can we make it hop like a low-rider? Take it to HOPPOS.

The TCT has - stock -35” tires & a 16” ground clearance that’s surpassed only by that of a high end G-wagen.

if it’s designed like the other teslas, it’s unlikely you’re going to be able to fiddle around with wheel and tire sizes much - if at all.

On my LR3's air suspension all that had to be done was fake out the height sensor at each corner. This gave the vehicle a permanent lift of 2.5"

this is one of the originators: http://johnsonrods.com/

I watched another video of some guys trying to go bigger on the tire size on a Tesla car so they could get more clearance. They couldn't due to tire clearance issues in the wheel wells.

We don't know for sure about the Cybertruck yet.

See I wanna go the other way and slam the CT. I posted with this question weeks ago but nothing.
Lift or lower, still valid questions.

That is surprisingly more difficult with the air suspensions i have worked with. The LR3 for example es the same trick to fake out the sensors. The problem people have had is that the shock travel is then very close to the bump stops. Once the truck starts hitting the bump stops frequently the computers would freak out.

However the CT is not an LR3 and may be easier.. or harder to mod.

Good information.
I’m in the belief that lowering would reduce drag even more. Truth be told, im one of those idiots that lowers everything. I just like the look and improved handling. Adjustable Bags in all 4 corners would obviously allow ride height changes. overcoming bump stop computer trips you mentioned seems reprogramming might solve... what do I know so I’ll just bring it to you!

Bro - factory stock, you’ll have a sub-11 second vehicle that’s 9 inches off the ground on 35 inch tall, 12 1/2 inch wide tires. It seems you have the option to run it slammed from the get-go.

If you build it, (CT), they (lift kits) will come.
And not just lift kits, winch bumpers, roof racks and all the typical off-road mods & accessories will come.
Not the day the 1st one is delivered, but once there are enough of them out there the aftermarket will be there. 👍

Tesla vehicles don’t have a universal joint to bend the angle of the drivetrain as the height raises up.

Yeah man, leave it as it is. Otherwise, people might think you're...up to no good.
