The 4” Budget System utilizes the factory front coil springs with a steel upper spacer providing 4” of lift. Radius Arm drop brackets retain the factory arms with correct caster setting for the increase ride height. System includes a Trac Bar relocation bracket that has been designed to center the axle under the vehicle and still works properly with the factory Pitman Arm. This eliminates the need to replace the Pitman Arm resulting in a lower cost and faster installation time. Rear lift is accomplished with lift blocks and extended length u-bolts.
This kit is a little work for the home mechanic but it can be done in the garage. With a jack and stands. The outcome was a buttery smooth ride due to the upper control arms. I opted for the better rear shocks (Stelth). The truck is perfect and I was able to get 275 70 18 tires under their . Slight rub on the drivers side full lock in reverse but not bad. I would do this lift again. I was considering the Rc lift but with the upper control arms that give you more travel you can’t beat this one. Of course now I want to go taller! But really this is a perfect lifted/level stance and doesn’t sacrifice gas mileage. I got compliments on how clean the truck looks.
