Front lift is achieved by installing spacers on top of the factory front strut / coil spring assemblies, eliminating time consuming strut disassembly. The factory upper control arms are retained and remain in their original location, while the factory lower control arms and axle housing are lowered, in relation to the frame. New Superlift replacement steering knuckles made of cast ductile iron and machined in-house by Superlift, span the increased distance between the control arms without increasing track width. A billet front driveshaft spacer ensures proper driveshaft engagement and length; brake hose extensions are also supplied.
The factory front struts are retained. The kit can be ordered with rear Superlift Superide or Superide SS shocks by Bilstein.
NOTE: We are proud to say that this lift system was the first independently tested vehicle to meet and exceed all specifications and requirements of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 126 (FMVSS 126).
