More Clearance for Local Suzuki Jimny


German lift-kit boosts the off-road ability of pint-sized local Jimny

The Suzuki Jimny is an amazingly capable little off-roader, but if you want even more 4x4 performance, there are options.

Famed German suspension supplier, Bilstein, is now marketing a lift-kit for the Jimny. Branded as a raise-your-game (RYG) component set, it raises your Jimny’s ride height to improve obstacle clearance in technical off-road terrain.

The Bilstein RYG package features the company’s B8 monotube dampers, which are locally assembled and linked to a set of South African fabricated springs.

Durability is boosted with a set of high-density polyurethane bushes, accounting for the increased leverage forces of raising your Jimny’s ride height.

How much clearance does your Jimny gain with a Bilstein RYG kit? The claim is between 35-45 mm, which in the realm of off-road ability, is a lot. A standard Jimny has a ground clearance of 210 mm, this kit would then take it to around 250 mm.

Although the latest Jimny has prodigious off-road ability, especially with its electronic traction control, having additional clearance is always welcome. This is especially important for owners who enjoy using the Jimny’s off-road ability, but don’t wish to unnecessarily snag and damage the bumpers or lower door sections of their vehicles.


Bilstein’s RYG kit is set to retail at R22 625
