    I'm looking to lift my 2012 Prius V2 a few inches for the rougher roads in my area. Does anyone know of any safe ways to do this without compromising the smooth ride of the vehicle? Is the suspension compatible with the suspension of any other vehicle? I haven't found anything but lowering kits online so far. Thanks guys!

    Interesting question.
    Finding a lift kit would be the answer...but never heard of one.

    That leave to items that I can think of.
    1) Coil over shocks with a height adjust.
    a) May not be inexpensive
    b) Wheel re-alignment, especially the rear, may be futile.
    2) Tall tires
    a) Again may "screw up" the speedometer, bounce and jounce function, traction control and Abs and be futile.
    b) You'd might be the "ginny pig" experimentor.

    Anyway, good luck let is know if you succeed with your project.

    V shocks are different than prius......
    Front and back.............including bolt pattern and length.
