Lifted 2019 Gs

Wanted to start a post for pics and products people are using on the new G.

To to my knowledge, the only thing available so far is springs that will raise it by 1.5. See link for pic.

Would anyone consider this, or is a shock replacement more ideal?

Agreed in 3 different NYC garages I entered it had to be parked at the entrance or risked becoming a drop top conversion.

I found most NYC garages have 6'6" (78") areas in them which for my G was 1" higher, but on any turns etc, my G didn't fit. A garage attendant once scraped the top of my G :-(. Headache. Speaking of that, I should measure my garage before the new G arrives

2019 G63-when it’s here

I believe the 2019 G63 maximum roof height spec is roughly 77.5 inches. But, doesn't this spec apply only for the stock 20 inch wheels, as equipped with MB's standard OEM tires? If so, I wonder why MB does not publish the maximum roof height spec for their 22 inch wheels, given you cannot simply add an extra one inch for the increased radius of the MB OEM 22 inch wheels, as this configuration involves an entirely different low profile tire?

I ordered the 40mm spring lift. Its the only way to fit 33x12 tires on the 22 amg wheels.

They have a portal axle kit now for 5! Not my cup of tea, but looking forward to seeing the Dubai millionaires and LA rappers and Kardashians doing this mod to the 2019s. Will look crazy.

From a daydreaming fantasy standpoint, this car definitely looks cool, but... What happens if you take your $200,000 2019 G63 on a nice vacation road trip, and something breaks down on the axles or portals? Say youre 1,000 miles from home when something in the custom suspension busts, so you have your G63 towed into the nearest MB dealership for repairs. I assume not only would your MB factory warranty not cover the repair, worse yet, I also assume the MB service department wouldnt touch the axles and/or portals, and would advise you to have it towed to some sort of a shade tree mechanic, side of the road, custom shop. With a MB 4x4 Squared, any MB dealer would fully service it, and under warranty. Even if this 5-inch jacked up car broke down in your own backyard, other than a custom shop, where the heck do you get it serviced for anything involving the cars suspension, springs, lifts, portals, or axles? No thanks, Ill keep my G63 fully stock.

agreed. I think the rappers and Dubai elite will be all about this. Im looking forward to my 1.5 lift. Will give it the perfect stance just with a simple spring change

^^^Wow...First off it'll be nice with a 1.5" lift.

Suspension doesn't burst! hahaha. Portals is what makes the 4x4 squared have the lift. Which that stock suspension sucks big time. Like my lift on my G63 comes to about 4-4.5" of lift. But I have custom King Shocks and very good parts on the lift. Nothing have assed. To the point my Benz dealer really likes it and shows it off. They service it and its still under warranty. Common sense though, if something suspension related breaks the warranty wouldn't cover it. Also a G63 is not 200K...I own nothing stock in my garage. Not even my golf cart is stock. I guess to each there own. Big difference from modding something half assed to knowing what works and what doesn't.

We have a few members on here that have modded and lifted Gs. A couple actually do heavy offloading. Also I wouldn't take the G on a family vaca, if I did drive.

This is why I went with 31 tires vice 33. There just wasnt that much room to spare in my garage.

Its also pretty tight in public garages too.

Did the lift


Got the g-raid springs for 42mm lift. Still doesnt clear 33x12.5x22 on the stock wheels. A little rubbing still. Ride is a little bit bouncier as well.

Would not recommend in hindsight. It looks great, but with the ongoing rubbing and less stiff ride... not worth the money. Will probably leave it as is for a while. Go back to stock if it gets annoying. Looks amazing though.

Did the tires affect the speedometer reading?

Have you considered using wheel spacers?
