Is it a body lift,or suspension?? Any time you lift any vehicle you hurt your gas mileage due to more air going under the vehicle,added wind resistance of everything underneath...As to handling,yes it will handle differently due to the raised center of gravity,but you can offset that by installing wider wheels,and tires which in turn negatively affects your mpg,but you can offset that by re gearing to a numerically higher(lower)gearing to get back the lost power,and mpg of the tires,and lift...But if you do that,you then lose some top speed as well as escalate engine,and drivetrain wear by spinning every thing faster to compensate...If you add a body lift you really need to either add aftermarket,negative offset wheels(less back spacing),or add wheel spacers to widen the track width to compensate...
