Brand New from CST Performance Suspension 2014+ GM1500 4.5″ Lift

2016 CHEVY CST 4.5" LIFT

Our new 4.5” performance suspension system drops the upper & lower control arms down using boxed & gusseted UCA drop brackets & LCA cross members. The design of this 4.5” kit allows it to be used on all three O.E. suspension configurations; cast-steel, aluminum or stamped steel.

 

To achieve a true 4.5 inch lift on the 2014+ GMC & Chevy four wheel drive trucks we drop the lower control arms down using our high clearance cross-members that follow flush in to the factory x-member for improved ground clearance. Next we drop the upper control arms down using boxed & gusseted drop brackets. The front portion of the kit includes laser cut coil-over extensions, boxed diff & sway-bar drop brackets & all necessary install hardware. This 4.5” kit also includes an aluminum skid-plate to connect the front & rear CST LCA cross-members & protect the front differential. The rear is lifted using hand-fabricated 3” lift blocks & zinc-plated u-bolts.
