Product SpotLight: Superlift Level It Front Strut Extensions for Late-Model Pickups & SUVs
Superlift responds to the market's demand for mild, affordable truck lift systems with its new Level-It line. These affordable, easy-to-install kits raise the vehicle's front to sit level with its rear. The result is clearance for slightly larger tires, plus-sized wheels or to overcome the added weight of a heavy front winch bumper and snowplow. Instead of replacing major suspension components to achieve substantial lift, Level-It systems augment the factory parts to raise vehicle front ends 1.5" to 3" (depending on application). Installation times average about two hours, and many kits are installable by competent home mechanics.
For trucks and SUVs that have coilover front struts -- such as many 2007 and newer 1/2-ton Chevys/GMCs and the new Toyota FJ Cruiser and pickups -- the Level-It kit uses extension spacers. Depending on application, components are made from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and/or 7mm (thicker than 1/4") plate steel that's finished in black powdercoat. Spacers range from 2" to 3" and fit up to 33" tires on most applications. Installation simply involves adding an application-specific spacer to the coilover strut assembly. Factory ride quality is retained (no additional preload or extension requirements are placed on the coilover shock), and specialized tools aren't required since the strut isn't disassembled. Kits include modified extension stops as necessary and 10.9-grade metric hardware. The Level-It extensions are easily removable should the vehicle need to be returned to stock. All Level-It components are precision-engineered and are backed by Superlift's Limited Lifetime warranty.
