OVERVIEW

Superior Lift Solution. Looking to add some serious attitude to your 2016-2018 GM 1500? Rough Country's 7-Inch Lift Kit is just what you need. This lift kit gives your gm a meaner, lifted, and level stance while providing a smooth ride for unmatched highway and trail performance. It also adds room for larger wheels and tires, so you can make your truck stand out from the crowd. With excellent ride quality and handling characteristics on the road, this lift kit is the perfect way to take your GM to the next level.

Innovative Design and Construction. When changing a vehicle's suspension, the key to preserving ride quality is keeping the geometry of all suspension components as close to their factory angles as possible.This suspension kit combines the use of durable control arm brackets, differential brackets, and drop cross members to reduce cv angles and simulate factory angles all while achieving new heights. Featuring a set of replacement struts that offer uncompromised strength and rigidity, gaining lift height is no issue. Completing the rear of this suspension kit is a set of rear blocks, shocks, and u-bolts that allow you to retain factory-like geometry. This combined setup provides enough clearance to run 35" tires without additional modifications. We didn't want to limit you to one standard kit. Rough Country's 7-inch kit is configurable with all the shock options that we offer. This allows you to choose which shock series you want! Ranging from our nitrogen-charged N3 shocks to our Vertex reservoir shocks the power to choose is in your hands. Our 7-inch kit features a set of high-quality, Forged Aluminum Upper Control Arms designed to make alignment adjustments easier and Clevite rubber bushings for enhanced durability. These arms are designed to promote a factory-like geometry by keeping the ball joint at optimum angles after lifting. This design allows for an improved, greater range of motion from the ball joint, with less stress, wear and tear.

Installation. Requiring cutting and grinding required to install, an estimated timeframe of 8-10 hours is recommended to complete this full installation. This full kit can be installed at home and can be completed efficiently and quickly!

Limited Lifetime Replacement Warranty. Rough Country's 7" Suspension Lift Kit is backed with a limited lifetime replacement warranty towards manufacturer defects. As such, the product is protected from structural and workmanship damage after the date of purchase. With our industry-leading warranty give yourself peace of mind when using Rough Country's Suspension products!
