in all seriousness, leaving it stock would have the least impact on the suspension /drive components. Any change in height from factory specs will put a strain in one way or another.

After looking at the CV joints on my E the other day it does look like lowering it about an inch would keep the CV joints from getting into harsh angles.

That being said, I have been really interested in the lift. I have no interest in lowering a "truck".
I ask because I'm not sure if lifting the E would relieve stress on the suspension and be beneficial in consideration of the additional weight of the e-camper, the extra passenger seat, the foldable hitch cargo rack, and the cargo box in the roof.

in that case lifting the E would counter act the sag from all of the weight but not relieve the weight on the shocks.

I have pondered the idea of the CCM 3" lift but reducing it with adjustable coil overs but I have no idea what the ride quality would be like at that point.
Thanks for the reply. I guess ultimately, lift or drop one will have to face the reality of changing suspensions on much frequent intervals as opposed to retaining oem specs.
