We plan to drive from London to Mongolia via Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, etc (Mongol Rally event) in a Suzuki Wagon 1999. We expect to be both on asphalted roads and off-roads.
Suzuki Wagon is a pretty-much "low" car. Thus we are thinking of increasing the clearance. As far as we understand this is typically done using additional "ressorts" or rubber elements. In any case, we hear mixed opinions that this can be both beneficial and harmful.
Are there any general guidelines when it is ok to increase the clearance? And what potential consequences it may have?
