I searched the MA dot website but am having trouble finding info. If anyone can help me find hat the lift laws are in MA i would be greatful. Also i am a complete newb to this site. But i have used the search function on these forums and have found nothing no matter how i word, or phrase my search. I want to buy a 79 ford bronco for sale locally. It has an 8" lift with 35" tires I would assume its illegal and dont want to waste my time purchasing only to get a ticket or a "reject" sticker.

I did find a link http://www.therangerstation.com/resources/LiftLaws.html (copy into browser) that states the law is

Maximum Lift = (Wheelbase x Wheel Track) /2200

But i do not have the truck nor is it stock, so if some one could help me find these measurements and or actual law from the state website i would be very greatful again.

PS thanks in advance

yo,
I hope that other MA lifted owners would chime-in here;
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts MGL 90-7P
"Section 7P. No person shall alter, modify or change the height of a motor vehicle with an original manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating of up to and including ten thousand pounds, by elevating or lowering the chassis or body by more than two inches above or below the original manufacturer’s specified height by use of so-called “shackle lift kits” for leaf springs or by use of lift kits for coil springs, tires, or any other means or device.

The registrar shall establish rules and regulations for such changes in the height of motor vehicles beyond said two inches. No motor vehicle that has been so altered, modified or changed beyond the provisions of this section or the rules and regulations established by the registrar shall be operated on any way..."
