12" Lift System


ORD has assembled a line of complete lift systems for the ’73-’87 ('91) GM straight axle trucks using ORD designed parts like our Shackle Flip kit, greasable HD shackles, crossover steering, shocks etc. for a truly complete suspension system. 

The often missed details like brakelines are even part of the kit, literally everything you need except for installation elves is included.

40” tires fit without modifying fenders, bigger tires will fit with trimming (and a 1" body lift always helps), we have many customers running 44" tires with fender trimming.

We often get asked about prices for our lift "kits" and the short answer is that we don't keep any kits boxed up on the shelf.  That's because we build a suspension system for your truck that only includes the parts that you need, we don't make you buy any extra stuff that you don't want from a "kit".  Our suspension systems are unlike any other you'll find, we have our shackle flip instead of tall lift blocks, we have steering for all of the trucks (including the 1 tons) and we have exclusive extras like greasable bolts and sway bar disconnects.

Everything is priced individually, we do have shipping discounts for complete lift kit orders!

12" Superlift springs are available again!!

Everything that's in blue is a link that you can click to see more information on that part!

Front Lift springs Part Number Price
12" Superlift Front Springs For '73-'87 ('91) GM Trucks #01-312 $350/pair
HD Front Shackles With Greasable Bushings and Bolts Top and Bottom #GU37011 $99

Because the front springs are being replaced the front u-bolts will need to be replaced.  Choose the u-bolt kit that matches your axle.

Front U-Bolts

Part Number Price
1/2 Ton and 3/4 Ton Front U-Bolt Kit  #17703-ORD $40
1 Ton (GM Dana 60) Front Axle U-Bolt Kit  #GU37051 $48

The lift in the rear is accomplished by a shackle flip and a new set of rear springs.  This gives you the best ride possible with no blocks.  The 2.5" shackle flip is used with our 6" Super Shackles to net 4" of rear lift (plus the springs net 10"), this is because the stock length shackle can invert and flip forward with 6" and taller rear springs.  You'll need to choose the shackle flip and rear springs that fit your truck:

Rear Lift Part Number Price
For 1/2 and 3/4 Ton Pickups and Blazers, 2.5" Shackle Flip, '73-87 ('91) GM #GU38012 $189
For 1 Ton Pickups, 2.5" Shackle Flip, '73-'87 ('91) GM #GU38013 $189

8" Superlift Rear Springs For '73-'87 ('91) GM Trucks #01-322 $350/pair

Since you're replacing the rear springs you'll need to replace the rear u-bolts as well.

Rear U-Bolts Part Number Price
1/2 Ton Rear U-Bolt Kit #17706-ORD $45
3/4 and 1 Ton Rear U-Bolt Kit  #17752-ORD $45

For steering correction, the only way that works well is crossover steering.  If you're on a budget we can get you steering correction that will make the truck driveable but you'll more than likely end up with crossover steering and it's best to spend money on the steering once and be done.

Steering Part Number Price
Crossover Steering for Dana 60 Front Axle #GK39GMD6012 $554
Crossover Steering for Dana 44 or 10 Bolt Front Axle #GK39GMD4412 $520

You'll need longer brake lines and our braided stainless steel lines are a perfect fit!  Our kit covers the whole vehicle, both front lines and the one rear line.

Extended Stainless Steel Brake Lines for '79-'87 ('91) GM Trucks #GU30013 $127

It's not a matter of "if" but when your frame will crack out at the steering box location, this kit is your best bet for preventing that if it hasn't already happened.  It's even common to see cracked frames on 2WD trucks, years of use really add up in the area of the frame that sees the hardest use:

Bolt-In Steering Box Brace, '73-'80 GM #GU39001-E $130
Bolt-In Steering Box Brace, '81-'87 ('91) GM #GU39001-L $130

And remember, if you're on a budget or already have some of the parts and pieces, we're happy to customize the system for your particular needs.  Call 970-945-7777 now for full details and low prices.
