US State of North Carolina bans trucks with raised front ends dubbed the ‘Carolina Squat’, starting Dec. 1, 2021.

The Carolina Squat, also referred to as the California (Cali) Lean or the Tennessee lean, began from southern California.

California Squat is a type of car modification in which the front end of pickups or SUVs are raised while the rear end are lowered.

Under the new law, the front suspension of vehicles cannot be raised by more than 3 in and the rear by more than 2 in.





Anyone convicted three times for driving with the prohibited modifications will lose his or her driver’s license for at least one year.

The House reportedly voted 94-9 on August 25 after North Carolina cited safety concerns about the modifications, including the risks the modified trucks and SUVs pose to oncoming traffic because of the angle of their headlights at night.





Under the new law, car owners in North Carolina cannot modify the front suspension of their pickups or SUVs by more than 3 inches and rear suspension by more than 2 inches.

When the ban comes into effect, starting December 1, 2021, anyone convicted three times for driving with the prohibited modifications will lose his or her driver’s license for at least one year (365 days).
