If you're looking for a massive performance lift for your truck, but want it to still be able to be a daily driver, you've found the right kit. You'll also be able to run much larger tires and wheels (see wheel size tab for more info on commonly used wheel and tire sizes.
The 8-10" kit (you will need to add torsion keys part CSK-C13-3
to go from the fixed 8" up to 10" in the front) includes a 1 piece gusseted sub-frame w/ steel full size differential skid plate, fabricated steel / CNC machined front steering knuckles, high strength steering drop center link w/ heim jointed support links to minimize wear of factory idler and pitman arms, differential drop brackets, heavy duty bump stop brackets, extended sway bar end links, brake line drop brackets, CST laser cut torsion drop brackets, all necessary hardware, and front stock shock extensions. Steering stabilizer brackets are built into the kit and CST's stabilizer shock kit CSR-2946
can be purchased as an option.
To lift the rear of the truck, this CST Lift Kit includes a an entirely new leaf spring pack.
Also included are new u-bolt spring plates, 1 inch rear blocks and zinc plated u-bolts for 7.5 inches of rear lift. This is where this kit differs from the CSK-C3-16-1. Shocks are NOT included.
