A pillar in the lowered truck world, McGaughy's is no stranger to altering suspensions and making a truck look, handle, and even ride better. So, when we heard they were designing a new lift kit, we couldn't wait to check it out. Available for GM 1/2-ton and 3/4-ton trucks, along with SUVs, the new McGaughy's lift kits come laser cut and machined, powdercoated in a metallic silver for good looks and long durability, and CAD-designed lift spindles (with a lifetime manufacturer defect warranty) are included. Increasing the ride height by seven inches, the new lift will help Silverado and Sierra's clear 35-inch tires easily, and with lower A-frame support rods and compression struts, the kit is extra tough for real off-road use.
A nice perk to this lift kit's design is the lack of cutting or grinding on the front differential-the only cutting is the lower control arm frame mount and new filler plates are included for added strength, along with the lower strut extensions, which don't require you to disassemble the factory strut.
We took a stock '07 Chevy Silverado 1500 4WD and in just over five hours, it was ridin' high and lookin' great. Check out the story to see how the kit was installed.
