Superlift 5" - 7" adjustable lift kits make it easy to add bigger wheels and tires and give your truck an aggressive look while maintaining your smooth, factory ride. Adjustable lift kits allow you to change the front lift of your truck in case you add any front heavy equipment like an off-road bumper or snow plow. This feature also comes in handy if you upgrade to bigger tires and need some extra room.


  • Retains factory ride quality, steering geometry and CV axle angles
  • Front track width not increased
  • Front lift height range of 5" to 7"
  • Full-width differential / control arm crossmembers provide lateral rigidity
  • Load bearing bracketry made of .25" thick plate steel or DOM tubing
  • Front differential housing does not require trimming
  • Dual centerlink stabilizing links make steering more responsive and extend pitman/idler arm life
  • Superlift or Superlift Select (SS) Bilstein shocks included

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The provided tire/wheel fitments are approximate. Actual dimensions of a given tire size can vary considerably from one brand to another. Manufacturers' wheel offset and backspacing measurement points are not always consistent. Backspacing greatly impacts tire-to-fender clearance when turning. Wheel width and backspacing influence whether the tires protrude past the fenders, and to what extent. Considering these important factors, we recommend that you fit-check your tire/wheel selection prior to purchasing.

Superlift shocks are twin tube, velocity sensitive hydraulic shocks. Bilstein shocks are a mono-tube gas pressurized shock. The Superlift shocks are coated with a white paint; the Bilstein shocks are a brushed steel body with a nickel and clear zinc finish. Bilstein shocks are more tuned for the application and offer more precise valving.



Yes and No. The lift components will fit assuming it is the Classic body style (1998 body style). The crew cab models have a 2-piece rear driveshaft with a carrier bearing that the lift kit does not provide any accommodations for. You will have to modify the rear carrier bearing crossmember or have a 1-piece rear driveshaft made for it to prevent any driveline vibrations.



The kit works for the front on a dually. The primary issue with dually trucks is the rear u-bolts. We have to confirm axle tube diameter and length required and see if we have a u-bolt available, or if they will have to be made at a shop near you.
