Complete
3" Lift System

ORD has assembled a line of complete lift systems for the ’73-’87 GM straight axle trucks using ORD designed parts like our Swaybar Correction/Disconnect system, Shackle Flip kit, and greasable HD shackles along with Tuff Country springs for a truly complete suspension system. 

The often missed details like brakelines and steering correction are even part of the kit, literally everything you need except for installation elves is included.

Our most popular kit is the 3-inch system (left), but we can provide you with just about any lift height you want.

Extensive testing of the 3-inch system on ORD project vehicles gives you great ride quality and handling on road along with good articulation and durability off road.  33” tires fit without modifying fenders and 35’s will fit with some trimming and a 1” body lift.  Several spring and shock combinations are available to fit the range of GM’s from trucks to K5’s and Suburbans.

Lift systems for '67-72 Chevy's are very similar in concept and price, call 970-945-7777 for details


We often get asked about prices for our lift "kits" and the short answer is that we don't keep any kits boxed up on the shelf.  That's because we build a suspension system for your truck that only includes the parts that you need, we don't make you buy any extra stuff that you don't want from a "kit".  Our suspension systems are unlike any other you'll find, we have our shackle flip instead of tall lift blocks, we have steering for all of the trucks (including the 1 tons) and we have exclusive extras like greasable bolts and sway bar disconnects.

Everything is priced individually, we do have shipping discounts for complete lift kit orders!

Everything that's in blue is a link that you can click to see more information on that part!

Choose a set of front springs.  The Tuff Country EZ rides are the softest off-the-shelf spring available, because of their low spring rate we don't recommend them for heavier trucks.  For trucks with a heavy bumper/winch, heavy motor (big block, diesel), crew cab, etc the Tuff Country HD's are a better fit.  Tuff Country springs are made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty.

Front lift springs Part Number Price
3” EZ-Ride Front Tuff Country Springs  #TCI-18370 $324/pair
OR    
3" HD Front Tuff Country Springs #TCI-18371 $380/pair

Because the front springs are being replaced the front u-bolts will need to be replaced.  Choose the u-bolt kit that matches your axle.

Front U-Bolts

Part Number Price
1/2 Ton and 3/4 Ton Front U-Bolt Kit  #17703-ORD $40
OR    
1 Ton (Dana 60 Front Axle) U-Bolt Kit  #GU37051 $48


The lift in the rear is accomplished by a shackle flip or a pair of new springs.  The shackle flip is a popular option because it's relatively inexpensive and allows you to keep your factory load capacity without a block.  If you choose the shackle flip you don't need to replace your u-bolts (you can install the shackle flip without removing them), if you choose new springs or blocks you'll need new rear u-bolts.

The parts up to this point are everything you need to install a complete, high quality suspension system under your truck.  Everything below are the extras that are popular with our lift systems:


Our HD front shackles are a popular option and in conjunction with the main eye kit make your whole front suspension greasable:

Our sway bar correction and disconnect kit does just that: corrects the sway bar link for the lift and allows you to disconnect the sway bar for offroad travel.  We also carry bushings for the sway bar because they're rarely in good shape:

Sway Bar Bushings, '81-'87 ('91) #BG05003 $19

It's not a matter of "if" but when your frame will crack out at the steering box location, this kit is your best bet for preventing that if it hasn't already happened.  It's even common to see cracked frames on 2WD trucks, years of use really add up in the area of the frame that sees the hardest use:

Bolt-In Steering Box Brace, '73-'80 GM #GU39001-E $130
Bolt-In Steering Box Brace, '81-'87 ('91) GM #GU39001-L $130

And remember, if you're on a budget or already have some of the parts and pieces, we're happy to customize the system for your particular needs.  Call 970-945-7777 now for full details and low prices.
