    Default Rough Country Lift Kit

    I had originally planned to install a RC leveling kit on my NBS 07 Ext Cab Z85, however, I was searching the RC website today and I realized that for not much more money I can have this 3" suspension lift.

    Does anyone have this kit on their truck? If so I would love to see some pictures, before and after pics would be even better. What was the install like? Does it require any special tools or training to install?

    i would think you would need a tool to take the front spring out but i think that would be it as far as special tools

    No, I've never done anything like this myself. I've never done any suspension work. How expensive is it to have a lift kit installed?
