- Tire&Wheel Notes
The design of this 4.5 kit allows it to be used on all three O.E. suspension configurations; cast-steel, aluminum or stamped steel.
If you're looking for a performance lift for of your truck, but want it to still be able to be a daily driver, you've found the right kit. This CST Suspension lift kit drops the lower control arms down using high clearance crossmembers that follow flush in to the factory x-member for improved ground clearance. Next CST drops the upper control arms down using boxed & gusseted drop brackets. The front portion of the kit includes laser cut coil-over extensions, boxed differential and sway-bar drop brackets. All necessary installation hardware is included. This 4.5 kit also includes an aluminum skid-plate to connect the front and rear CST LCA cross-members and protect the front differential. 3" lift blocks and new u-bolts take care of the rear. The end result is a level stance since these trucks sit lower in the front from the factory. This system will not cause your Stabillitrak to malfunction.
If you're worried about ride quality, don't be. Your truck will maintain its ride quality after being lifted with this kit. You'll also be able to fit up to a 35" wheels 9" wide wheels.
