This system offers a mild lift height with easy installation for clearance of 33? tall tires on 2014 K1500?s w/ factory Aluminum suspension. Lift is accomplished by utilizing the factory front Coilover shocks with steel spacer system that helps retain the stock ride of the front suspension. The stock upper control arms are replaced with high quality tubular Uniball arms that allow unrestricted movement throughout the travel range. The arms are constructed of top quality material including .120? wall 4130 Chromoly tubing with a 1.50? OD and 1? FK Stainless PTFE Uniballs. These arms are the best on the market for aggressive offroad driving in harsh conditions. The front differential is relocated to keep CV angles proper with the new lift height while a 1/4? thick steel skid plate provides protection against offroad obstacles. Rear lift is accomplished with 1 1/2 inch rear lift block and u-bolts to help level the stance of the vehicles. Performance rear shock absorbers replace the stock units for increased damping. NOTE- Before ordering visually check your vehicle?s factory suspension for aluminum or steel version. This system will only fit factory aluminum suspension vehicles. Use 33/12.50R17 tire w/ 17x8 wheels w/ 4 1/2? BS w/ minor trimming. Use 275/65R18 tire w/ 18x8 wheels w/ 4 1/2? BS w/ minor trimming. Use 295/55R20 tire w/ 20x9 wheels w/ 5? BS w/ minor trimming.
