As far as I know there is no change to any part of the drivetrain.
Picture the chassis/drivetrain as a rolling unit. Picture the body as a box that goes on top. If you put 2.5" spacers in between you've got the VC lift.
Sometimes you need longer shocks but VC claims the OEM parts are long enough. The only change to stock is the top of the strut housing is different to allow for proper alignment.
I have not driven the van enough to really check mileage. In the last 100 miles it appears no worse than stock but I need to run a few tanks to be sure.
From my truck experience tire width is what kills mileage. The lift should hurt high speed mileage a little but the lower rpm's with the bigger tires may offset the increase. Now the engine thinks I have a 3.31 diff instead of the actual 3.73.
|I did not have any luck at my dealership in reflashing the truck to 3.31 gear ratio to compensate for the big tires and 3.73 gears it actually has. They stated that they can no longer adjust these parameters as they could previously. Has anyone succeeded in this with a 2015 or newer?|
