4-4.5" lift.... CST

been searching the forum for lift info for days now.. I have a local 4wp shop that only carrys fab tech and pro comp lifts... Another shop carrys super lift, rise, rancho and CST among others. I'm considering the CST 4.5" lift but have not been able to find many people running this kit... Any thoughts on this kit?

Please avoid the "get ICON" comments... yes I know they are the best ride but not in my price range!

Thanks in advance

do you actually go off roading? are you gonna be hard on the kit?

Look into the basic Zone 4 inch kit. not the radius arm or drop bracket kit. ( or look at them doesnt matter to me ) if your not gonna off road ( mostly for looks ) try the basic zone 4 inch.

Zone off road is owned by BDS


( never heard of CST )

I will be doing light offroading pulling trailers loaded down with my wheelers into the offroad park... nothing to serious.. Ultimately, I would love to go with the BDS 4", but 4wp and the other local shop do not carry BDS

you can have the kit shipped in. and i dont call pulling into the off road park off roading. off roading i would consider full suspension travel possible front wheels off the ground and high rates of speed off the road.

P.S. i dont work for any sort of suspension company i just think the price for quality thing is decent and its half the cost of icon.

Good to know! I would have the kit shipped it, but the shop wont warranty it (may be wrong) assumed it would be best to go with a company they supply and install frequently. If they will install and warranty their work on a kit they don't carry, I will def be getting the zone or BDS... but if the CST is comparable I'll go that route, just not a lot of info on the forum about them

Anyone claiming they offroad these trucks is full of ****. They weigh 8500lbs and are too big to go up any trail without destroying the body. Just get what you think will give you the look you like and ride the best on road. BTW my idea of off road is a muddy ranch road with a trailer full of sxs's.

I had decided I was going with the basic zone 4" kit but I did some looking and it doesn't come with a new pitman arm to keep the steering geometry the same. BDS kit does come with the new pitman arm. Not sure if it is necessary or not though.

I don't go offroading in mine, but I have seen 100's of videos of people doing it.

Skyjacker doesn't come with one either, have to order it seperate. So make sure what ever kit you buy, has a new pitman arm. If not, be sure to order one!
