CROSSOVER IS NEEDED FOR 12" OF LIFT
ORD has assembled a line of complete lift systems for the ’73-’87 ('91) 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.
Extensive testing of the 12-inch system on ORD project vehicles gives you great ride quality and handling on road along with good articulation and durability off road. 40” tires fit without modifying fenders, bigger tires will fit with trimming and (a 1” body lift can help too). We have many customers running 44" tires with fender trimming. Several spring and shock combinations are available to fit the range of GM’s from trucks to K5’s and Suburbans.
For steering correction, the only way that works well is crossover steering. If you're on a budget we can get you steering correction that will make the truck driveable but you'll more than likely end up with crossover steering and it's best to spend money on the steering once and be done.
