Description

This Tuff Country 2" Lift Kit for the Chevy K1500 truck uses front replacement torsion bar keys and rear add-a-leafs to lift your truck 2". The included torsion bar keys reindex the factory Chevy torsion bars which lifts the truck without "cranking up" the factory torsion bars. Once installed this lift kit will keep the "Factory Rake", with the front end being slightly lower than the rear.

Made in the USA for a Reason - Since 1988 Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension has been and still remains one of the very few suspension lift kit brands that manufactures, designs and packages its products in the USA. Why does this matter? Buy a lift kit from nearly any other brand that imports their products from overseas and you will get inferior steel, components and hardware. Many brands will also leave out important components that are crucial to proper suspension geometry. All can lead to fitment, alignment and sagging issues down the road. While Tuff Country may not be the cheapest lift kit on the market, quality components and happy customers are a higher priority.

Note: To purchase Tuff Country 12933KN (w/SX8000 Shocks) please select in options above.

Tuff Country has been producing quality suspension products for over 30 years and backs all lift kits with a limited lifetime warranty. image

Customer Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product? Let one of our experts answer it for you!

We will respond with an answer ASAP.

Question:
Is this kit all I need to lift my truck 2"? I've seen other kits with more materials and more expensive but I just want it to be slightly higher and I want a complete installation at one time without having to buy other parts, with the exception of ubolts.
Answer:
Yes this is a complete kit. You will have to select the option for shock as they are show in the photo as an option. This kit being only 2" does not require any other drop pieces that some of the larger kit do require. You will have to have the vehicle realigned to a factory spec after installing this kit.

Didn't need the torsion keys
I had enough bolt left with my stock torsion keys to crank up 1.5 inches, and that was as far as I was willing to go for A-arm clearance. I did use the shocks, and as far as I can tell are good quality. The add-a-leaf worked out well. Removal of old parts was painful do to age and rust, but that's unrelated to the kit. Overall I am satisfied, but wish I had skipped buying the torsion keys. I am very pleased with the new shocks as I already needed new ones so badly.

Carefull of the powder coat
Just a little note for installers of this lift....if you dont ream the bolt seat it will bind and you will not get any lift from these keys. I used a 1/2" drill bit with the tip ground down to the bolt radius ...widen the bolt seat so it spins freely in the seat...dont forget the neversieze

nice kit
Both the front and the rear went on well. Like the results. Got enough clearance to clear my tires. FYI - old ubolts suck to remove. Ended up just torching the old one.
