When it comes to lift kits, you mostly see them on pickup trucks, and less so on their SUV equivalents. But as the off-road scene continues to reach critical mass, that appears to be changing. And if you want to lift your otherwise standard-issue carryall SUV, you’re not exactly left out in the cold, either. Take for example this 3.5-inch bolt-on suspension lift kit from Rough Country for the T1 Chevrolet Tahoe.
Chevrolet Tahoe: Rough Country Suspension Kit Details
All it takes is one good look at the aggressive stance the SUV now has to help make a decision, and this kit will undoubtedly take your vehicle to new heights (pun intended). The lift fits both the Chevy Tahoe and the Chevy Suburban utility vehicles. The kit features a set of lightweight, forged aluminum upper control arms designed to make adjusting the alignment easier. O.E. style rubber bushings also make up the suspension to enhance durability. In addition, the arms are designed to promote a factory-like geometry by keeping the ball joint at optimum angles after lifting. As a result, the Rough Country Lift offers a greater range of motion from the ball joint while reducing stress as well as wear and tear. The lift has been designed to retain the factory ride quality, which is essential since many people use these vehicles as their daily drivers.
The Rough Country Suspension Lift Kit for the Chevrolet Tahoe also includes a set of fabricated rear blocks to provide lift in the rear and ensures the SUV has a clean, level look from front to back. In addition, the added height will enable customers to increase the tire size up to 305/55R20, which is a 33.2-inch tall tire.
Rough Country advertises that the all-inclusive kit comes with everything you need for installation and is relatively easy to do compared to other kits on the market. Since the entire thing is 100% bolt-on that requires minor trimming, the equipment can be installed using standard tools in a home garage. If that’s still not enough, customers can have peace of mind with their purchase as the kit comes with Rough Country’s Lifetime Replacement Warranty.
