    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.

    A company called CEIKA makes a lift coilover kit. Actually choosing the OEM height version seems to go higher than stock as well.

    moto g(7) power ?

    The Gen 3 kit works on the Prius V. “DESCRIPTION - Front and rear strut/coil spacers for 2010-2015 Toyota Prius, and Prius V.“

    The front strut mounts, and rear spring perches are the same however which is what components the lift kits utilize. Making them interchangeable between the V and hatchback.

    Yessir. 2010-2017 V. I’ll probably end up creating a separate product listing for V and plug in models just to avoid confusion.

    I know that..... just throwing in the additional information about the shocks..... they are totally different.... just like the transmission, headlights, and master cylinder(ecu) , just to name a few.
