This is the Superlift 8” Suspension is the perfect solution for truck owners looking to run a 35” tire with a wider profile. This is a TRUE 8-inch Lift Kit for the Silverado and Sierra. It was designed and engineered to be an 8-inch lift from its conception unlike some companies that use their 6-inch lift components with a taller strut spacer to achieve 8 inches of lift. The steering knuckles and control arm crossmembers provide all the proper geometry correction for the true 8 inches of lift.
Using OE data files allows us to design lift kits that mimic the original factory designed components. This aids in installment and compatibility. It also allows our engineers to design a kit that once installed not only retains your truck’s excellent ride and handling characteristics but one that is also compatible with GM’s Stabilitrac anti-skid system.
Nothing is left unattended with this 8” lift kit. The brake lines and front sway bar are relocated to make sure there is no binding through the cycle of the suspension.
The rear includes a set of fabricated lift blocks that locks in the axle ubolts though the blocks upper and lower plate giving you the strongest set of blocks on the market today. The block also has ubolts that capture the leaf pack to help counter axle wrap.
NOTE: Does NOT fit 2007-2016 Chevy Silverado’s and GMC Sierra’s with OE CAST Steel Control Arms

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.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUPERLIFT AND BILSTEIN SHOCKS?
- 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.
