ReadyLift is proud to introduce a new SST Lift Kit system for the 2007-2014 1500 Series GM 6-lug 4WD SUVs (Avalanche, Escalade, Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, Denali).
The Ready Lift 69-3295 4.0" SST Lift Kit is the result of over six months of extensive product development followed by rigorous on and off road testing. ReadyLift's goal is to provide a true 4.0" lift kit that is completely bolt-on with no drilling, cutting or welding required. This system significantly increases ground clearance while allowing for tire sizes up to 33" tire on an aftermarket wheel. The most common tire size for this application is 33x12.50 (max). In order to install a 33x12.50 (305/55/20) with aftermarket wheels, some minor trimming of the inner fenderwell may be required. 22x9.5 with 5.5" backspacing requires no fender modifications. 17x9 +0 offset on a 285/70R17 will fit with no rubbing. With a 295/70r17 minor trimming/modification required. Note: This kit is designed for use with aftermarket wheels.
Customers can now have the GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL and GMC Denali they have wanted but wasn't available - until now!
The ReadyLift 4.0" SST Lift Kit will raise the 2007-2014 GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL and GMC Denali 1500 4WD SUVs 4.0" in front thanks to tough trail-proven 4.0" powder coated steel strut extensions that bolt directly to the top of the factory strut. Unlike many cheaper quality kits which require you to cut off your strut studs or break the top hat seal which are irreversible modifications, Ready Lift's rugged strut extensions require no modification to the strut in order to install the extension. This guarantees the strut will maintain the factory integrity as well as drastically reducing installation time.
Two key products were developed to make achieving 4" of lift without modifications a possibly. At the heart of the system is Ready Lift's all-new 100% DOM tubular upper control arm. This new heavy-duty control arm features OEM-style ball joints pre-pressed into a strong crown that retains OEM geometry throughout the suspension cycle and doesn't require any modifications to the spindle. That means no drilling or machining to make the ball joints fit the spindle. The new control arms include 90-degree grease fittings to insure the life of the new polyurethane bushings.
To lift the rear of the GM coil spring-equipped SUVs, this lift system includes 3.0" powder coated steel coil spring spacers. The strong coil spacers insert into and top of the factory spring which maintains the great factory ride! In addition a slight rake is helpful for towing or hauling. New longer and stronger rear sway bar end links and bump stop extensions are also provided to keep the rear suspension working properly.
Completing this great new lift system are a set of steel rear shock extensions. No need to replace your great-riding factory rear shocks with inferior aftermarket shocks. These new shock extension brackets keep the rear shocks in the factory mounting position which means your truck will ride great! And we know that's important!
Speaking of riding great, it is ReadyLift's philosophy that every lift system they manufacture should maintain and/or improve the factory ride when installed and used as recommended. The ReadyLift 69-3495 4.0" SST Lift Kit will make your SUV ride and handle great while providing the raised height you have been wanting. Every one of our test vehicle owners have commented on how great the truck rides both on and off road with this system.
NOTE: If you intend to retain your stock wheels and tires, a wheel spacer will be required to prevent the factory tire from touching the control arm at full locked turn. ReadyLift has developed a CNC-machined billet aluminum wheel spacer 10-3485 for use with factory wheels which have the stud pockets cast into the wheel next to the lug holes on the back side of the wheel. If you are planning on using larger aftermarket wheels, this will not apply to you.
