S.T.L. High Clearance LIFT KIT | 2011-2016 GM 2500HD | 6-8" STAGE 1

Superior fit, function and finish. Improved ride quality, O.E. steering geometry, O.E. CV angles, O.E. track-width, that’s just a few of the many reasons we are known as the 2500HD guys. You could also say we paved the way for sub-frame style lift kits, twenty years ago and long before the current trend. Fifteen years later, like the 2500HD our lift kits are still evolving and still continue to uphold our reputation! Our 6-8" S.T.L. (Stock Torsion Location) kit uses a one piece sub-frame, fabricated steering knuckles, steering drop down and will retain the factory handling!

CSK-C3-17-1

We've incorporated our experience in off road racing and trophy truck quality engineering to ensure that your suspension will have increased strength, performance, overall build integrity, and perform better than stock. Throughout the initial design and R&D process we made sure to retain the factory O.E. suspension geometry and design attributes!


This S.T.L. (Stock Torsion Location) 6-8" adjustable kit will include our one-piece gusseted sub-frame with a steel full size differential skid plate, fabricated steel, CNC machined front steering knuckles, high strength steering drop center-link with heim jointed support links to minimize wear of the factory idler and pitman arms, differential drop brackets, heavy duty bump stop brackets, extended sway bar end links, brake line drop brackets, all of the necessary install hardware, and O.E. front shock extensions. This kit also includes our hand built S.T.L. front brackets, allowing you to keep the torsion x-member in the stock location!

 

The rear kit includes fabricated 4" lift blocks with bump stop pads and heavy duty 3/4" zinc-plated u-bolts.

 

Steering stabilizer brackets are built into the kit and our stabilizer shock kit can be purchased as an upgrade option.




No cutting of the front differential is required or welding of any kind to install this kit. Retaining the factory front wheel track width allows this kit to work perfectly with all of the trucks stability assist features including the GM Stabilitrak system.
