I did some searching and didn't come across much in the way of lift kits for your car. I found air-ride suspension setups which will allow you to raise it somewhat, but those aren't really meant for rock-crawling. To be honest though, your vehicle isn't really meant for it either (very few are - notable vehicles that are honestly meant for that stuff are the Jeep Wranglers and various Land/Range Rovers). The manufacturers make all kinds of claims about off-road abilities, but since the vast majority of owners never go farther offroad than their driveways, there really isn't much emphasis put into the design of SUVs anymore for offroading.

I did find one site that had a ton of items for your vehicle, and you can check it out here (this is their subpage meant directly for your car):

http://www.slickcar.com/accessories/santafe_accessories.asp

You could page through and see what they have, and you can always call them and see if they can sell you offroading gear, or refer you to someone who does. I doubt you'd be the first person that has asked them and I'm sure someone makes the gear for your truck.

This vehicle has higher ground clearance and narrower tread in relation to the height of its center of gravity to make it capable of performing in a wide variety of off-road applications. Specific design characteristics gives it a higher center of gravity than ordinary passenger cars. This vehicle design feature causes this type of vehicle to be more likely to rollover. And, it has a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the road allowing you to anticipate problems. It is not designed for cornering at the speed as ordinary passenger cars any more than low-slung sports cars designed to perform satisfactorily under off-road conditions. Therefore, sharp turns at excessive speeds ma cause rollover.

Low pick on uphill slope and low pick up with AC too


hello sir.

low pick up on uphill and low pick up with AC ON.

these both r general physics problem, due to the higher downforce on uphill the car will b having low pick up. n with AC 'ON' the AC will b using a part of fuel supply engine, hence with higher power on the AC, larger is the fuel sucked from the engine supply. hence the lesser is the fuel supply top the engine, thus low power output.

i requst u to please check your car performance with the car of same type, on the sane road, by yourself, then conclude that your car is not performing,

it happens with the age of the car too, with long run, ur car cluthes will b damaged, ur carborator, with low tire pressue, with low quality radiator oil, ur car engine may rise the temperature, thus reducing this power output.


surely their is no problem with your car.

a general check up with a local mechanic will surely fix it sir.

thank u .

if my soultion helped u, then plz give me a feedback.

Power Steering Pump on 01 v6 santa fe


Sure sounds like its low of fluid or the filter is very dirty! My guess is that it works well driving straight open road. Most often the filter is inside the pump. Frankster016
