Pics of 4" Lift Kits

Seriousley thinking about purchasing one of these. I'm going to try another brand other than Rough Country or Skyjacker to see how they are. I've been happy with the prices for the Zone and Maxx Lift kits.

Do I need the carrier bearing drop bracket and pitman arm? I'm not even seeing a carrier bearing underneath my truck.....

Whose got some pics?

Yes, you need a drop pitman arm along with a drop trac bar bracket.

As for carrier bearing, I think your regular cab has a one piece driveline in the rear, so no carrier bearing shim kit is needed.

As for pics of 4-4.5" lifts:

If you have a drop trac bar bracket you will need a drop pitman arm.

However, if a drop trac bar bracket isn't used, then you don't use a drop pitman arm.


The idea is to keep the geometry the same as stock so as not to induce any bumpsteer into the setup.

Can someone give me the link for the zone kit and the pitman arm? Also is the stock pitman arm used and you just add adrop to the stock one? It looks like a pain to get the stock one off if you had to replace it.

The Zone 4" uses a replacement trac bar and no trac bar bracket....hence why the stock pitman arm is used.

If you were to get a different suspension system with a drop pitman arm, it's a completely new cast arm and they aren't hard to remove....just need a pitman arm puller.

Correct.


For a little bit more money you may also want to consider the BDS 4" lift as it comes with their awesome no fine print, lifetime warranty:
