The CST 8"-10" Stage 2 Lift Kit With Rear Shocks CSK-C3-16-3 provides superior fit, function and finish on your 2011-2019 GM 2500HD 4WD. Improved ride quality, O.E. steering geometry, O.E. CV angles, O.E. track-width, thats just a few of the many reasons CST is known as the 2500HD specialists. You could also say CST paved the way for sub-frame style lift kits, twenty years ago and long before the current trend. Fifteen years later, like the 2500HD CST lift kits are still evolving and still continue to uphold our reputation! The Lift Kit includes front & rear lift components and rear shocks for a level stance at 8 inches of lift.Â CST has combined their experience in off road racing with trophy truck quality engineering to ensure that your suspension will have increased strength, performance, overall build integrity and perform better than stock. Throughout the initial design and R&D process, CST made sure to retain the factory O.E. suspension geometry and design attributes! The Stage 2 8-10" adjustable kit for the front end includes CST's one-piece gusseted sub-frame with a steel full size differential skid plate, fabricated steel, CNC machined front steering knuckles, high strength steering drop center-link with heim jointed support links to minimize wear of the factory idler and pitman arms, differential drop brackets, heavy duty bump stop brackets, extended sway bar end links, brake lines & drop brackets, CST laser cut torsion x-member drop brackets, all necessary hardware, and O.E. front shock extensions. Â Â Steering stabilizer brackets are built into the kit and our stabilizer shock kit can be purchased as an upgrade option (not included).
