This is a kit for existing Taos Level-1 Lift Kit customers looking to upgrade to Level-2 and the 1.5" lift it offers and front camber correction.
The B2BFAB Level-2 Camber Correcting Lift Kit is the only kit on the market for your Taos that provides the 1.5" lift you want without sacrificing handling, ride quality, or proper alignment specifications!
The Overview: The owners of B2BFAB developed the first lift kit in 2016 for the MQB platform (MQB = shared chassis for Atlas, Tiguan, Alltrack, Taos, Golf, Jetta, Audi A3, Q3, and more). The initial kit was a simple bolt through design and resulted in less than ideal alignment specs, which made for less than ideal handling and tire wear. Both were issues that needed to be addressed. Over the next five years, we tested numerous prototypes and worked to perfect a design that checked all of the boxes. We are proud to introduce the B2BFAB MQB Camber Correcting Lift Kit!
The Problem: For the MQB platform and the majority of road-going vehicles, a small amount of negative camber is dialed into the front and rear suspension to offer proper cornering and overall handling. When a MQB platform vehicle is lifted with a bolt through lift kit or spring lift the negative camber of the front wheels is reduced or removed. With no camber adjustment present on the front suspension components, zero camber or even positive camber is unavoidable.
"Why do I care?" The proper amount of negative camber ensures optimal contact between the tire and the road through all handling maneuvers. When front camber is outside of the manufacturer's specified range in the positive direction, the handling is floaty, twitchy, and generally unstable at highway speeds. While many vehicles have an adjustment for this, the front of the MQB platform does not.
The Solution: By offsetting the upper mounting point of the front struts, our lift kit removes the excessive positive camber allowing proper suspension geometry and specifications.
*Color Install instructions included.*
We STRONGLY RECOMMEND our Rear Strut Extender Kit or Atlas Rear Shock Upgrade in conjunction with this lift kit. See descriptions below to decide which is right for you.
For optimal rear shock travel and maximum life from your OEM shocks we suggest our Rear Shock Extender Kit available HERE. (Front shock extenders are not required as front shock travel is not affected with the install of our kit)
If you are looking to optimize your rear shock travel and increase load capacity our Atlas Rear Shock Upgrade is available HERE.
We also STRONGLY RECOMMEND replacing ALL one time use hardware during the install to ensure proper torque specs and avoid hardware failure. Upgraded Complete OEM Hardware Kit is available HERE.
*Our lift kit is not recommended to combine with other lifting options
