Includes patent-pending rack and pinion steering drop correction system (U.S. Pat. App. No. 14/531,073) and an integrated differential drop bracket system to ensure correct CV axle angles and maximum performance in 4WD mode. Patent Pending fabricated steel strut extensions (U.S. Pat. App. No. 14/532,783) provides the Maximum 6.5" of front lift while 5.0 tall OEM-style rear blocks provide a quality 4.0" rear lift that doesn't sacrifice the ride. Total rear lift equals 4.0" of lift when installed.This kit even includes a Patent Pending steering extension to keep your steering performance like factory.
(RCS) Rack Correction System - that works with the relocated steering rack to retain the stock steering geometry. That means No Cutting or replacing the tie rod ends like on some other kits on the market. Why is no cutting the tie rods important? Because of the owner or mechanic replacing a tie rod down the road doesn't know a tie rod has been cut and shortened, they will install the OE replacement tie rod which will not work and the vehicle cannot be properly aligned. That is just one reason why a dropped rack and pinion is far superior.
Benefits of ReadyLIFT Rack Correction System - By dropping the steering rack the truck retains full OEM alignment specs, features a stock vehicle turning radius and retains the stock track width! This system can be aligned to within factory specifications. We also include details on the ideal alignment specs to prolong tire life and increase the performance and handling both on and off-road.
Bonus - No need to cut your steering rods like on other kits which requires the tie rods to be shortened. This results in reduced steering radius. Our steering rack drop down system allows you to retain your stock tie rods without modifying them.
Bonus - The ReadyLIFT lift kits are the only lift kits that will allow you to use your factory spare wheel and tire in case of a flat.
The subframe and other components are powder coated with a unique and improved Plascoat finish. The Plascoating on the components is a performance polymer alloy coating specifically designed to provide a long-lasting, tough coating for exterior applications. The Plascoat finish is especially resistant to stress cracking with improved abrasion and impact resistance as well as a great way to protect against adverse weather conditions, detergents, salt spray and other typical airborne pollutants.
