Heya, welcome to the forum!
When I was looking to upgrade my lift I was able to get some lifted coilovers from Silver's North America, but I was only able to get about 2-2.5" of lift out of them, and even that is with a fairly stiff spring rate. You should be able to safely get a bit more lift in the front by pairing it with a Tema4x4 spacer kit and replacing the studs on the coilovers with longer studs, but the rear can not be lifted more than about 2.5" or you will run into camber adjustment issues. There is no real way to get more than 2.5" of suspension lift, but theoretically you could do an additional 1" body lift on the front and rear subframes to get to 3.5" total, but no one has done that and documented it on a Juke yet.

Here's how my Juke looked in the early stages of the 2.5" lift and roughly 2" spacers and some fairly large 32" tires. With 2" wheel spacers you will definitely have to start trimming if you want to fit anything bigger than 28's, and I had to modify the front control arm to be able to fit 32+

If you stick around on the forum for a little while, the subframe body lift is the next big project I'm going to work on, and it might be the only other way for people to get a big lift onto a Juke

Thank you Jaxxa. Will I require any engine upgrades or just the kit and spacers? I was looking at the whole suspicion swap out with 2.5” and and additional 1.5” on the front. Nice car bro!

My engine is totally stock and factory tuned, and I don't see many issues on the street or with light offroading. I did upgrade the factory transmission cooler to put an additional radiator to it, and it's probably a good idea to get an LM327 OBDII reader and download the CVTz50 app on Android which allows you to monitor your transmission temperature. The heavier your wheels are, the quicker your transmission fluid will heat up, so it's a good idea to make an informed decision on your wheel and tire setup as well as upgrade the transmission cooler to get the best performance and longevity.

Here's a pic of my older setup when I first got my 2.5" coilovers with 29.5" tires on factory 17s with 35mm (1.3") wheel spacers, so you can expect your setup to be just a little bit taller and wider than this
