The Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension engineering team has designed this Colorado lift kit around new driver / passenger side steering knuckles and front / rear cross members. These cross members are connected by a heavy duty skid plated designed to protect the front differential and stabilize the cross members. This superiorly designed Colorado kit also allows for the torsion bars to remain in the factory location, eliminating relocating of the stock torsion bars. Front sway bar end links use a heim-joint end that eliminates any binding in the front sway bar. Also included are differential relocation brackets, performance bump stops and rear u-bolts.

larger tires
I was wanting to get larger tires for my Colorado, I know they recommend 31 inch tall tires but I was able to squeeze 32 inch tall tires with very little trimming. Suspension Connection shipped it fast witch was important because I needed the kit before I left on vacation.

customer service
I have never installed a lift before that being said I would attempt to install this lift by yourself, I finally had a couple friends come help me, I made a few calls to customer service and they were very helpful and patient. I would recommend Tuff Country and Suspension Connection and will buy from them in the future.

good kit over all
a few problems... as far as the hardware, too much of some nuts and bolt and too few of others. had to drill my own holes for the zert fittings in the rear cross member. the rear cross member did not fit the old rear arm mounts dimensionally. in tightening it down, it crushed the existing channel before bottoming out, I needed to shim it with additional washers, and also pushed the bolts out far enough to interfere with the control arm swing so I had to use a cutoff wheel to trim things up so it would clear...and yes I cut the control arms exactly as directed. the front shocks once mounted run too close to the bump stop extensions and the boots for the front shock fit for crap. too large in diameter and too long. so it was a 10 hour job doing the front and the latter half of that was a struggle. the rear is a no-brainer...but it got done, aligned up fine and rides and drives rather nice.
