Question Adjustable Height Lift - Suggestions?

So, it is finally time to go for a proper lift for my 5th gen 4R and I'm currently shopping around for some options.

My requirements:
  • cost: around $1500
  • has to improve ride quality and reduce nose dive/body roll
  • has to improve off-road performance (of course!)

Ideally, I would like to find something that is adjustable after install, or with minimal effort/cost.

I need this because I'm running BGF KO2 256s and for the time being, I would like to go with something like 2" front and 1" back, but eventually when (hopefully) going with a 285/295, I would like to have for example 3" front and 2" back, without having to buy a new lift kit.

Does something like this even exists?

Thank you for you help!

That's a super unusual situation. I'm not sure it's ever come up before. You might want to start here though:

Thanks, I already went through that thread and search a bit but as you said it's kind of an unusual situation

I saw some adjustable lift kits that can be set at different heights but I don't understand if it has to be done pre-installation o can be done after.

If it's too complicated I might just go for an 'in between' setup which would work fine with both tire sizes...

You're going to have to remove the suspension to change ride-height.

Using the threads on coilovers to change ride height is not the correct way to do it; it's just going to set the pre-load super high and have a crappy ride.
