Does any company make a bracket lift kit for a Defender Limited? Seems like they only fit non cab models. Would like a 2” lift without stiffening the stock suspension. You would think there is a market for this. Thanks in advance for replies, could not find any answers in previous discussions.

They will fit the limited I have the Kemimoto on mine for about a year now, just have to loosen rear sway bar some to install. . I emailed Kemimoto they replied it would fit, guess they never updated their page. I know Can Am changed some rear lower a-arms on the lesser models they will not work for though.

Thanks for your input. Did you have to modify the brackets or just loosen the rear sway bar as you had mentioned. Also I wonder why they don’t want to list the Limited as one of the units the brackets fit. Are there other brackets from another company that list it would fit a Limited?

No modifications were needed just had to loosen rear sway bar but didn't disconnect it to allow the arms to lower enough to get the lower shock bolts in. It just seemed with this Covid crap they didn't check to see if any differences in the 2021 models. I know when I researched it some of the DPS models the rear A arms the bolt went straight through the A arms and didn't have the bracket mounted on top of the arms. I think the other companies all say the same as far as the limited.

What are you trying to accomplish? Just more ground clearance...or shooting for bigger tires? There are different options to get you to where you want to be.

We make a 3" puck lift for it. https://www.superatv.com/can-am-defender-3-lift-kit?sku=LK-CA-T#LTA

Without stiffening your ride, the best bet would be to go with forward A-arms and bigger tires to get you more ground clearance and not effect the ride at all. The lift kit will also help get you there...but may stiffen the ride some.

Just wanted to add a bit more ground clearance. Don’t want to stiffen the ride and only going up a size or two with tires. Many people say pucks make the ride too hard. Someone should make a bracket lift for the cab models.

Can't do a good bracket lift for that model. The suspension is already tapped out, and bracket lifts would push the suspension down below the angle the stock axles would bind. Forward A-arms and taller tires would be your best bet for sure.
