Autofab starts each lift by first installing new beam pivot bushings and then straightening the beams to their original condition. The beams are then bent for both camber and caster alignment using Autofabs strict specifications. Recommended tire size for our 5-inch lift package is 33 to 35-inch tall tires or the metric equivalent.
Our 5-inch lift kits include Autofabs’ extended radius arm package, the extended radius arms, new radius arm bushings, new radius arm hangers, and all grade 8 hardware. We extend the radius arms, on the 5-inch lift, to ease the angle on the radius arm bushing. Our radius arms are either the formed steel or cast steel radius arms, depending on the year of your truck. We also provide our custom fabricated radius arm hangers. Our hangers are made to accommodate the increased angle of the radius arm bushing after the truck has been lifted.
All of Autofabs ’65-79 Twin I Beam lifts include our own adjustable tie rod. This tie rod allows proper toe-in adjustment of both wheels independently of one another while keeping the steering box in the center of its’ travel.
A core charge may apply to this kit.
This lift requires either a core charge and return of your good used beams and radius arms, or your good used parts for us to perform the work on. If you would prefer for us to perform the work on your parts, then a core charge doesn’t apply. But you will need to send us your parts first. Turn around is usually 3 weeks, excluding shipping time.
Please note, this is a non-stocking item, each lift is made to order.
