Complete
8" 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 Swaybar Correction/Disconnect system, Shackle Flip kit, and greasable HD shackles along with Tuff Country springs for a truly complete suspension system. 

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

35” tires fit without modifying fenders, 37's will fit with some trimming, bigger tires will fit with more trimming (and a 1” body lift can help too).

Lift systems for '67-72 Chevy's are very similar in concept and price, call 970-945-7777 for details

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!

Front lift springs Part Number Price
8” Front Skyjacker Springs #C1805 $375/pair


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 $45
OR    
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 pair of new springs.  We can supply 8" rear springs but the ride quality is much better with a combination of a shackle flip and new rear spring:
 

Rear Lift Part Number Price
For 1 Ton Pickups, 4" Shackle Flip, '73-'87 ('91) GM #GU38011 $189
For Trucks With 56" Rear Springs, 4" Skyjacker Rear Springs #CR24S $615/pair
OR    
For 1/2 and 3/4 Ton Pickups, Blazers and Suburbans, 4" Shackle Flip, '73-87 ('91) GM #GU38010 $189
For Trucks With 52" Rear Springs, 4" Skyjacker Rear Springs #CR14S $470/pair


You'll need to choose one of the u-bolt kits below:

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


At 8" of lift height and more crossover steering is highly recommended for improved bump steer characteristics and to insure lock to lock turning at all times.  For 1/2 and 3/4 ton front axles, we can use a raised steering arm with a drop pitman arm and it works ok.  For 1 Ton trucks, there is enough money in making the stock steering line up (~$450) that it really makes sense to go straight to crossover steering:

Steering correction Part Number Price
For 1/2 and 3/4 Ton Trucks, Raised Steering Arm #70100 $75
For 1/2 and 3/4 Ton Trucks, Drop Pitman Arm #CA50 $115
OR    
Crossover Steering for Dana 44 or 10 Bolt Front Axle #GK39GMD4410 $520
OR    
Crossover Steering for Dana 60 Front Axle #GK39GMD6010 $554


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 Brakelines Part Number Price
79-98 and D60, 10mm Braided Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit  #GU30012 $119
OR    
73-78, 7/16" Braided Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit #GU30072 $119

The parts up to this point are everything you need to install a complete, high quality suspension system under your truck.  Everything below are the extras that are popular with our lift systems:


Our HD front shackles are a popular option and in conjunction with the main eye kit make your whole front suspension greasable:

HD Front Shackles With Greasable Bushings and Bolts #GU37011 $99
Greasable Main Eye Kit For the Front of the Front Springs #GU37012 $27


Greasable bushings/sleeves/bolts for the entire rear suspension.  Choose the one that fits your truck, more info on applications by clicking here:

Greasable Rear Spring Bushing Kit 1 ½” Spring Eyes and 1 ½” Shackles #GU38002 $90
Greasable Rear Spring Bushing kit 1 ½” Spring Eyes and 1 3/8” Shackles #GU38003 $90
Greasable Rear Spring Bushing Kit 1 ¾” and 1 ½”  Spring Eyes and 1 ½” Shackles #GU38002-A $90
Greasable Rear Spring Bushing Kit 1 ¾” and 1 ½”  Spring Eyes and 1 3/8” Shackles  #GU38003-A $90


HD rear shackles, the bushings are 1 1/2" and are included in the greasable rear suspension kits above:

4.5" Rear Super Shackles #GU38015 $100


Our sway bar correction and disconnect kit does just that: corrects the sway bar link for the lift and allows you to disconnect the sway bar for offroad travel.  We also carry bushings for the sway bar because they're rarely in good shape:

Sway Bar Bushings, 73-80 #BG05024 $29
Sway Bar Bushings, '81-'87 ('91) #BG05003 $19
Swaybar Correction and Disconnect Kit #GU37001 $99


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.
