The Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension engineering team has designed this Canyon 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 Canyon 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.

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.

Review Product
Tuff country took the city out and left the country
Tuff country did it. A lift kit that any back garage person can install with basic tools. The instructions where very detailed and easy to follow. Shipping was fairly quick even though we had to wait for one part from manufacturer. Even with that Tuff Country let me know asap that the part was back ordered and product was shipped before there said date. Now my canyon turns heads and is quick to raise coments. The ride is not bad and it handles great and now handles light off road ok too. Thank You Tuff Country.

Great Lift and Great Customer Service
The Tuff Country lift we purchased for our GMC Canyon looks and drives outstanding. It turned a boring SLE Z85 into a head turner. The customer service was top notch as well. Our kit accidentally included a wrong shock and the folks at Suspension Connection had the correct one there the next day overnight by noon. The best!
