Im right there with you. Just a few more inches of clearance would be nice. I have a 2012 terrain.

I could be wrong, but with a FRONT WHEEL DRIVE, it is not possible to lift

STRUTS would need to be extended
CV JOINTS would need to be lengthened

You would have to go with a Rear Wheel Drive vehicle

I believe a mild, .5 to 1 inch coil spring spacer lift will have little negative effect with the proper alignment. There are people doing these on 100's of trucks a daily w/o significant issues. For myself I'd like to raise my Equ AWD 1 inch, then add 1 inch taller and slightly wider tires and call it good for a more masculine look, slightly wider track, and another 1.5 inches of ground clearance.

Front wheel drive is no different that the IFS on a Silverado. CV axles up front on them also. Look how they bolt on a new sub frame to maintain acceptable driveline angles on a big lift. A small lift with spacers could be possible IF there is enough adjustment for camber.

Some suffer from insanity, I choose to enjoy it

A strut spacer would be the way to go on in the front and a thick spring seat in the rear. I would be interested in a group buy effort if the parts are aluminum. 2" would be better though. Suscribed.

Check the active pist listing, there is a company in Germany that says they make kits.

Yeah. Rough Country does a strut spacer deal with the 1500 series Siverado. Only about an inch thick at the strut, but with arm angle, makes it about 2" of lift at the wheel. Would be perfect type of thing for the Nox / Terrain. I will get ahold of Rough Country and see if anything they offer would fit on the Nox or if they would produce something like that.
