ReadyLIFT has engineered the perfect solution for leveling the 2014-2018 GM 1500 trucks. GM changed the upper control arms on the GM 1500 pickups to a stamped steel upper control arm that provides minimal structural support for the factory ball joint when in a lifted or leveled scenario. This has resulted in GM mandating no lift kits or leveling kits are to be installed on these new vehicles.
Important Note: This kit is for use only with GM 1500 trucks with Stamped steel or aluminum control arm suspension. Not for use with cast steel suspension.
ReadyLIFT's goal is to provide accurate and safe lifting and leveling solutions for their customers. Their engineering team has developed the perfect leveling solution for these new GM 1500 trucks that includes our popular CNC machined billet aircraft grade aluminum 2.25" leveling kit along with strong DOM-tube steel upper control arms. These new control arms are a direct replacement for the factory stamped steel arms and includes proprietary heavy-duty ball joints and an industry first maintenance free anti-resistance bushing assembly that is self lubricating and features a free-rotating inner sleeve. With this new leveling kit/control arm combination (PN 66-3086) you can now level the 2017-2018 GM 1500 trucks with assurance the vehicle will sit level, maintain the factory ride and you have the peace of mind you will never have the factory stamped steel control arm failure. Allows for up to a 33x11.50 tire.
Premium CNC machined billet aluminum construction leveling kit Include DOM tube steel upper control arms Features heavy duty ball joints and new maintenance free bushing assemblies that self lubricate and include "side biter" splined washers for holding alignment.
NOTE: To ensure proper leveling kit fitment, using a plumb bob line (for a clean vertical) to measure from the center of the wheel hub to the bottom edge of the fender at the 12 o'clock position while the wheels are pointing straight forward. If this measurement is greater than 22" then the truck already has some factory or aftermarket front lift compared to a base truck. For distances measuring greater than 22" as described above, #66-3086 or #66-3085 should be modified to account for the pre-installed lift.
NOTE: To ensure proper front lift height and suspension geometry, install the ReadyLIFT leveling kit WITHOUT the lower horseshoe spacer. Incorrectly using these kits on a truck with 22" or more distance may result in component interference and/or excessive wear.
NOTE: Some vehicles may require the use of 15-3485 1/2" front wheel spacer when using some factory wheels. The factory wheel options and difference in backspacing vary. In order to run a 285 or larger tire on the factory wheels, you may be required to use 1/2" wheel spacers in front.
