    A Real Lift. Give your GMC Sierra the stance and clearance you've been wanting with this 3.5" lift kit from Rough Country. This expertly-engineered kit preserves stock geometry for the best ride, handling, and stability. The included diff drops even maintain stock driveshaft angles to prevent excessive U-joint wear.

    Rough-Country Tough. This lift kit is made with extreme use in mind. The parts are laser-cut and CNC-machined. Fabricated rear lift blocks discourage axle-wrap, and outlast cast blocks. The included nitrogen-charged N2.0 shocks are custom-valved for this specific application, and provide the best balance between on-road handling and off-road capability. This kit is covered under Rough Country's limited lifetime warranty.

    Documented Install. This kit includes features to make it easier to install than most other lifts. If the stock front struts are retained, they won't need to be disassembled. All necessary hardware is included. Any mass damper on the front diff must be removed. Some cutting and grinding is required. Follow the fully-illustrated, step-by-step instructions and you'll soon be riding high.

    Application. This Rough Country 3.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit without Upper Control Arms is designed to fit 2007-2016 4WD GMC Sierra 1500 equipped with stock cast steel control arms.

    Application Note. Will not fit 2014-2016 Denali models with MagneRide suspension or Sierras equipped with stamped-steel or cast aluminum control arms.

        I am debating between the 3.5 in lift kit with upper control arms, or without upper control arms but with the lifted struts. What would you guys recommend? I’ve seen reviews on both cases and both either recommend one or don’t recommend the other.

        • Typically we recommend 3.5" lifts with upper control arms

        Would if I already have a 2.5 inch leveling kit in the front and the truck sits level as is right now. Does this lift kit lift the front 3.5 inches as well as the back or 3.5 inches in the front and and 1 inch in the back so there is no need for an actual level kit and this kit does the leveling without the additional 2.5 strut spacer in the front to level?

        • This kit will increase ground clearance while leveling your front with the rear on your truck

        It says that my 2017 Chevy Silverado won’t fit this lift kit, it says that the problem is that its a 2017 model

        • Correct, this kit will not fit the 2017 models.

        What if I already had installed a 3inch front leveling kit and had both upper control arms w/ball joints replaced. What would be my best option to get at least 2 to 3 inches of lift on the front and rear? I currently have LT315/70R/17 tires on my truck now. But I need more clearance on the front so I can turn sharper without rubbing.

        • The best bet to get another 2-3" of lift front and rear would be to purchase a complete lift kit for the desired ride height. Manufacturers pair together lift spacers, crossmembers, and/or spindles for the front along with blocks and/or shackles in the rear depending on the year and model to get the desired height. Furthermore, each lift or leveling kit is designed for a particular ride height when used with only the lift components in the advertised kit.

        What is the difference between the optional Upper control arms and my stock ones ?

        • The optional Upper Control Arms will help relieve stress on the ball joints.
