This 5.5" IFS System comes complete with a new ductile cast iron steering knuckles. The new knuckles position the critical steering and control arm mounting locations and work in harmony with the heavy-duty fabricated crossmembers.  Along with new crossmembers, the provided differential drop brackets lower and reposition the front differential for correct CV shaft angles and still allow for use of the factory front driveshaft.  A front driveshaft spacer is included to adjust the length and retain optimum CV joint position. To improve offroad protection, a full width differential skid plate is supplied tying the two crossmembers together for extra rigidity. To retain OEM ride quality the factory struts are retained and a top mounted strut spacer is installed to gain the full 5.5" of lift.  The strut spacer design also speeds up installation, as it does not require any strut disassembly. Also included are extended sway bar links, bump stop extensions and brake line relocation to complete the front of this 5.5" kit. Out back, the rear kit uses a 4" block and u-bolt kit to lift and level the stance. Finishing off the rear this 5.5" IFS systems is offer your choice of hydro or nitro gas shocks. Get more from your new 2016 Colorado/Canyon Duramax and fit 33" tires with Zone Offroad.

      Hey Robert, thanks for reaching out. The FOX 2.5 remote coilovers offered in BDS’s kits are compatible with our lifts as well. We don’t offer them, they would need to be purchased through BDS or one of their dealers.

      Hey Alec,
      Unfortunately those particular wheels cannot be used with our 5.5″ IFS lift kit unless you’re installing a small (1/4″) wheel spacer to bring them out to our recommended 4.5″ BS. Reason for this is the an interference issue with steering that requires the 4.5″ BS unless going to a 20″+ diameter wheel
