Jan 30, 2009· im bout 2 get a 1997 crown vic interceptor, and i want 2 put a lift on it for rims. im trying to decided if i want 2 get a 3", 4" or 5" lift. im putting some 22s on 1st, then i want to upgrade to 24s. i want the car to be above the rims about a inch or a inch and a half. but when i put regular tires on it, i dont want it sitting so high that it looks ugly. so what lift should i get?
