CST 2014-2017 Silverado & Sierra 4.5" to 5.5" Lift - 2wd # CSK-G5-1

CST Performance Suspension is known for building the finest suspension lift systems that money can buy. In a recent Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road lift kit shootout the CST Silverado 4x4 6-8" lift was voted BEST OVERALL KIT! CST has taken the same winning engineering and construction talent and applied it to their 4.5" to 5.5" spindle lift for the 2wd suspension lifts for the all new Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 2wd pickup trucks. This adjustable lift height suspension system is designed to fit 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 series trucks equipped with the Aluminum or Stamped Steel suspension.

This CST 4.5" to 5.5" Lift is designed to fit the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 model year Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500. Please note this lift will ONLY fit 2wd models equipped with the ALUMINUM or STAMPED STEEL suspension. We have provided pictures of both suspension types so that you can determine which type your truck has. If your Silverado or Sierra has the Cast Steel factory suspension this item will not fit. By design the CST Lift Spindles are NOT compatible on 4x4 models! This CST 4.5" to 5.5" Suspension Lift System is 100% compatible with the GM Stabilitrack system. This CST lift includes sufficient components to achieve up to 5.5" inches of front suspension lift. If you only want 3.5" inches of lift you can install the CST 3.5" Lift Spindles by themselves. If you prefer a 4.5" lift height you will install the CST 3.5" Lift Spindles and the provided 1" Lift Strut Spacer. If you want to lift your Silverado or Sierra 5.5" inches you will install the CST 3.5" Lift Spindles, 1" Lift Strut Spacer, and the 1" Lift Spring pre-load Spacer. With 5.5" inches of suspension lift and minor trimming up to a 35" tire can be run.

CST 1" Coil Spring Spacer (pair)
CST 1" Lower Strut Spacer (pair)

All Necessary Installation Hardware
Printed Installation Instructions

Rear Lift Information:
The included 3" tall rear lift block will replace your factory 1.00" block. That means you will achieve a 2" rear lift when installing a 3" lift block (CST 3" Lift Block minus Factory 1" Lift Block = 2" of lift). We also offer a 4" tall lift block that will provide 3" of additional lift after the factory 1" block is removed. If you want a level stance and plan on installing the CST front lift to 5.5" inches we recommend the 4" rear block to achieve a more level stance. With a 5.5" front lift and a 2" rear lift (3" CST block - Factory 1" block) the front of the truck will be higher than the back. For customers that do not want run a tall rear lift block we also offer the Deaver Spring Company Mini Packs # J1. These packs can provide between 2" and 3" of rear lift on a 1500 series truck. Optional rear lift components are available for purchase using the selection boxes located near the Add To Cart button.

Shock Absorber Information:
Extended length rear shock absorbers are recommended when installing this lift. Rear shocks are NOT included with the CSK-G5-1 system but are available for purchase using the selection boxes located above this item description. As an optional upgrade CST offers their CSR-3500 0-2" lift coilover for the front of the Silverado and Sierra. The addition of the CST coilover to the CST 3.5" lift spindle will allow you to achieve up to 5.5" of lift without the use of the Strut Spacer or Pre-Load Spacers. The major benefit of the replacement front coilover is ease of ride height adjustment and the increase in on and off-road handling and suspension performance. Another performance option is the installation of the CST Closed Top UniBall Control Arm. This CST Upper Arm provides additional suspension travel and strength and is an excellent upgrade for those looking to put together a Mid Travel system. The additional suspension travel makes a very noticeable difference in how the Silverado and Sierra react when driven more aggressively off-road and are a very worthwhile upgrade.

Tire & Wheel Information:
CST recommends the use of a 33" tall tire on 8" wide wheels when running the kit at 3.5" inches and up to a 35" tire when running the kit at 5.5" inches. Some wheels with up to 5.50" back space will work with this kit however test fitting is MANDATORY as not all wheels with 5.50" of back space will clear! If you want to run a larger tire we'd suggest performing a test fit before mounting up and installing all four tire/wheel combos. There's nothing worse than buying a tire and wheel combo that doesn't fit. If you need help selecting the correct tire and wheel package please let us know.
