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
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.

action on our Suburban shop truck.
Lift systems for '67-72 Chevy's are very similar in concept and
price, call 970-945-7777 for
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!

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

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.

The lift in the rear is accomplished by a
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.
If you're using a shackle flip in the
rear, you don't need to replace your rear u-bolts unless they're in bad
shape. If you're using new springs or block in the rear, you'll
need to choose one of the u-bolt kits below:

and 1 Ton Rear U-Bolt Kit
Basic steering correction is a drop pitman arm, crossover steering is
available as well:
You'll need longer brake lines and our
braided stainless steel lines are a perfect fit! Our kit covers the
whole vehicle, both front lines and the one rear line:
Choose a set of shocks, there is more extensive info on our shocks if
you click here.
The SX8000's bolt right in to the factory mounts, the Bilsteins require
our extended front shock mount kit for anything beyond street use:
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:
Greasable bushings/sleeves/bolts for the entire rear suspension.
Choose the one that fits your truck, more info on applications by
HD rear shackles, the bushings are 1 1/2" and are included in the
greasable rear suspension kits above:
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:
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:
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.
