The 5" suspension lift kit consists of the CST CSS-C1-8 cast 5" lift spindles, extended front brake hoses, and a carrier bearing relocation kit. This CST 5" lift will clear up to a 285/75R16 or 285/70R17 tire mounted on an 8" or 8.5" wide wheel. CST recommends that aftermarket wheels be used when installing larger than stock size tires. CST recommends that wheels have no more than 5.00 inches of back space. The ZQ8 Colorado and Canyon models sit lower than a standard Z85 model. If you have the ZQ8 Sport Suspension Package you may want to consider the CST 1" billet aluminum coil spring spacer to help get your truck sitting as tall as a Z85 model. To ensure you receive this spacer, please be sure to select your correct model from the drop down boxes located beneath this item description.

CST retains the factory front coilover shock and coil spring with this kit. The majority of lift is provided by the CST lift spindles. This means the front suspension ride quality will be about as close to stock as you can get. This kit rides NICE and it looks GREAT! CST recommends their Add-A-Leaf Spring Kit and Extended Shackles to raise the rear of the truck approximately 3" inches (pictured but NOT included). To complete the suspension package you may need to purchase extended length rear shocks. Replacement front shocks are not required to install the spindles. If you want your Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon to have a level stance strongly suggests the addition of both the CST 1" Rear Lift Shackles and the CST 2" Lift Rear Add-A-Leaf. Most customers agree that the CST 2" Lift Add-A-Leaf by itself does not provide enough rear lift to level the truck front to rear. If you like the back of your truck to sit a little lower than the front the Add-A-Leaf CST recommends for use with their 5" front kit is probably sufficient. If you want the truck to sit level you'll want to purchase the CST lift shackles. Please be sure to select your specific Colorado or Canyon model when placing your order.

The Colorado in the picture is equipped with 285/70R17 BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires mounted on 17x8.5" Walker Evans Racing Wheels.
