Myself and a buddy make a 2" suspension lift for Trackers and Sidekicks. It allows you to run a 30" tire, you could get a 31" tire on with a little trimming.

PM me for more info...

Here is a picture of a Tracker with one of our lift kits installed, it is running 30" tires(it's the black one in the picture)

I put a 3" body lift and some coils out of a 4 door kick (gives about 1") and I ran 31 x 10.5.

I have a calmini lift in mine... and it ain't so right!

I have had to replace the front springs with a different type, the calmini ones sagged out and had coil bind. I also had to replace the front struts that came with the kit because the ones that come with it, make it ride like a hay wagon, (I went with OME struts.) In my opinion the only good parts in that kit are the control arms, diff drop brackets, trailing arms and the upper third link, everything else I have had to replace or modify to make it work properly

if anyone wants a good lift kit there is a place caled zukination near calgary i bought my 4 inch lift kit from them and it was very easy to install, all the parts ar canadian made and i cant sag the springs anymore i have got 32, 11.5, 15 super swampers on and they just tuched the front bumper plastic,it also depends on the spacing of your rims and i have a fulsize ford rim. it was funny when i had my 31 insh baldies on stock rims with my other truck with a 2 insh body lift they rubed more than my 32s. so the lift cost me about 1100 bucks and its a very easy install it took me 3 hours with myself and a tool bitch lol
