Rough Country Chevy 1500 Lift - The Chevy SolutionPosted in How To on December 1, 2010 Comment (0)
So you're the proud owner of a '99-to-'06 Chevy 1500 4x4 and you want some extra clearance for larger rolling stock. Furthermore, your pockets might not be all that deep right now for any of a dozen reasons. You're after something value-priced that's still high-quality. Rough Country has your Chevy solution.
Priced (at press time) around $999 retail, Rough Country's 4-inch Chevy 1500 4x4 lift system is easy on the wallet, leaving you with enough cash to buy the 33-inch tires you've been eyeing for a while. The Rough Country system uses drop brackets to reposition the front lower control arms, combined with a pair of custom lift knuckles to bridge the newly-created gap between the upper and lower control arms. The upper control arms are left in their stock location. The rear suspension is lifted using a 3-inch block, new U-bolts, and a pair of extended shocks.
