    Default Rough country lift

    My suburban is in need of new shocks, and with all the miles on it I know ball joints are gonna be on that list too. So to kill a couple birds I am considering the 2-3 rough country lift. Seems easy enough to install just curious if anyone has installed one and how it lived up to expectations as far as usage and drivability of the vehicle once it was installed.

    your suburban has the torsion bar suspension, all the 2-3" lift is are keys, simple to do if you have an unloading tool. basically a tie rod remover but machined to fit the torsion bar crossmember to slowly release the tension.

    This is the actual kit I am looking at, more then just keys, includes upper arms and front differential relocater and blocks for the back. Includes shocks as well, any opinions and/or real experience with this kit or this company in general is appreciated.
