hey if you use telescopic cyclinders would the sizes be the same just different lift height,for example,if you put 14's in, telecopic,room wise, is it the same ,or is there modifying that has to be done because of the extension,or could you put them in and they would fit but just lift higher.

Telescopics are to gain more lift than you can achieve with the normal single stage cylinders. They're basically the same size, just dual stage cylinders. Only modifying you would have to do is to make sure you're car can safely lift as high as the cylinders are that you're putting in.

So if 14's fit on my car(Caillac) then the telescopics would fit, just the driveline and trailing arms would need modifying

Yup, pretty much to go big like 18,20,24" of lift you have to use them because there's no where for the cylinder to go with the car laid out besides up through the rear deck/window/roof

some companies rate the telescopics as the full amount of travel they give, and some reate them other ways (and confuses people)

a 18" lift telescopic might be the same length as a 10" lift single stage,etc,but they may not call it an 18" telescopic,some people go by the casing lengths,or by the first stage,etc

I would have 26" telescopics in my ride, but I'm not confident on a pair that wont leak from side moves and 3 wheeling. So I have 20" singles right now. As soon as I get some positive feedback on some telescopics that dont leak and are nice and strong, I'll be all over them.
