Rough Country's Chevy 1500 Lift Kit Eliminates Rear Axle Wrap
Aug 30, 2010
Lift blocks are a common way of providing inexpensive lift for leaf springs, but the downside is axle wrap. Rough Country's new Chevy lift kit avoids this problem thanks to their new anti-wrap blocks. Their 6" Chevy 1500 Suspension Lift Kit features new, pre-fabricated anti-wrap rear blocks that are custom designed to prevent axle-wrap - a common issue where the axle rotates opposite of the wheel under torque causing potentially severe damage to the vehicle. With a trapezoidal shape and wider surface area, these anti-wrap rear blocks are significantly less susceptible to wrapping and offer far greater peace of mind when towing or off-roading. This kit also includes a heavy duty skid plate, laser cut cross members, torsion bar cross-member drop brackets, and lifted knuckles. A set of front and rear Nitro 9000 Shock absorbers are included; featuring self adjusting Velocity Sensitive Valving - a revolutionary technology that varies the resistance valving incorporated in the shock according to piston rod speed. An optional non-torsion bar version is also available at a slightly higher price.
