There’s just something about lifted vehicles. Whether it’s a truck or UTV, giving a vehicle a lift instantly sets it above the crowd (literally). UTVs like the Can-Am Maverick X3 in particular are great for lifting. In addition to the aesthetic of a lift, lifting your Can-Am Maverick X3 gives you a big upgrade in functionality. Giving your Can-Am Maverick X3 a few extra inches of clearance means you can take on more challenging terrain that would stop a normal Can-Am Maverick X3 in its tracks. You’d be surprised just how far a Can-Am Maverick X3 lift kit can take you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a Can-Am Maverick X3 lift kit for your X XC, some spring spacers for your Maverick X3 Max, or a UTV bracket lift for your Can-Am XDS Turbo, when it comes to increasing your rig’s ground clearance, lifting your Can-am Maverick X3 is the way to go. Depending on your ride style and the terrain over which you traverse, you may not need a huge lift to get where you’re going. A simple 2” lift is more than sufficient for many applications — especially if you’re not looking to go crazy with master aftermarket tires or anything like that. The 3” bracket lift is popular and will help you go through more trails than the stock height. The more you crank the suspension the stiffer the ride will be, so just because you installed a lift doesn’t mean that your ride will be substantially stiffer. A higher ride height, however, will make your machine a little more top heavy, which is why some Maverick X3 owners widen their stance with wheel spacers after installing a lift kit. The 3” SuperATV lift kit has gotten a lot of positive feedback, and you don’t have to cut or modify anything to install it. But if you own the XXC, you will have to get a particular type of tie rods as they are different than the ones on other Can-am Maverick X3 editions.
Are you looking to give your Can-Am Maverick X3 a customized look? Do you want to elevate your rig so you can tackle those tougher trails that require a few extra inches of clearance? It’s time you upgrade your Can-Am Maverick X3 with a lift kit and experience the extra stability and height that you’ve been craving while also preventing the destruction of your undercarriage. Here at Everything Can-Am Offroad, we have high-quality Can-Am Maverick X3 lift kits from some of the best names in the industry like Highlifter and SuperATV. Combining larger aftermarket tires and shocks with a Can-Am Maverick X3 lift kit can give you even more clearance and an even meaner look.
A few riders we’ve spoken to have complained of breaking their Can-Am Maverick’s front axles after installing lift kits. They are under the impression that the only thing lift kits do is make your Can-Am Maverick’s suspension super stiff, which causes your machine to ride like crap and forces your CV joints up to their max angle, eventually causing your axles to break. However, this is a common misconception. Most UTV lift kits don’t do anything to your springs except change their mounting location. The front lift has relocation brackets which make the front shocks stand more vertical, changing their angle. This helps to stiffen the shocks as well as lessen the travel.
Spring spacers can also be installed, which basically get stuffed between the springs to stiffen them and increase ride height. When you loosen up the springs to make your Can-Am Maverick ride more smoothly, you’ll be back down to basically the stock ride height. Now if all you do is tear through mud holes and don’t really care about how your suspension feels, you may not notice how bad the ride is. But if you’re a rock crawler or hill climber, certain types of Can-Am Maverick lift kits can ruin your ride and put more stress on your axles. This is where Can-Am Maverick portal lifts become a better alternative to regular lift kits. Because they maintain the stock geometry and weight distribution, portal lift kits give your Can-Am Maverick X3 a taller ride height without putting unnecessary stress on your axles and CV joints.

The UTV lift kits mentioned above are the standard height options. But we realize not everyone is a standard rider, so if you want to turn your Can-Am Maverick X3 into an outstanding piece of machinery that intimidates rivals with its appearance, then you may want to go with a 6” lift kit or even all the way up to a 10” lift kit. With the right combination of parts and a thoughtful installation, your Can-Am Maverick X3 is more than capable of handling a 5” or 6” lift kits. Keep in mind that a lift kit is an investment for your Can-Am Maverick X3, so make sure you take your time installing it and use good accessories like spacers, springs, and brackets. Our UTV aftermarket lift kits for the Can-Am Maverick X3 are tough and can handle the barrage of pressure that they will be faced with each time that you head out onto the trail. You can turn to SuperATV or High Lifter for these upgrades and know that you will be getting quality for your money. Choose from the options that we carry and get your Can-Am Maverick onto that racecourse with your new monster tires. We also carry lift kits for the Can-Am Maverick MAX, Maverick Sport, Maverick Trail, Maverick X3, and the Maverick X3 MAX.
