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 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, 35’s will fit with some trimming and (a 1” body lift can help too). Several spring and shock combinations are available to fit the range of GM’s from trucks to K5’s and Suburbans.
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.
