I saw this on the other site and found it pretty interesting.

A 10" suspension lift for the Colorado/Canyon

Wholesale Suspension Outlet

I also emailed the company to find out more about the kit. I will post up the response IF I receive one haha.

I am not sure if this kit will fit the Z71 torsion bar suspension or if it is for the coil over suspension of the Z85. I certainly hope it does, or at least it can replace it haha.

We will see....

Interesting... That looks like a Z71 in the pics but don't hold me to it.


Only problem with that Colorado are those wheels are too freaking small.

Eh, i dont know. Its gonna take a hell of alotta tire to make it look normal. You may have to go so large that it'll rub the fenders.

you can pull it off....but its gonna cost alot of money. They want 2700 for the kit. Then you have to figure new tires and rims...before you know it 5500$ to do the lift. Ill stick to the 4" on after thought.

I think thats a little ridiculous. 10" is way too much for our trucks. Personally 5" is as high as I'd go.

:shrug: Maybe...

As I said, I emailed them with several questions, a couple being about max tire size and torsion bar/coil over setup.

Hopefully I will get a response sometime soon.

Oh and it does look pretty gay in the pics because of the tire combination they have with it. They look like they might be 33s, but not positive on that.

I say get all the shit under the frame powder coated black, add some side steps to hide more shit, bigger tires, and get rid of the lower chin valance and it would look great...

It's funny. A ton of people LOVE 4-5" lifts with a 3" body lift and 35s... Now people say that the 10" lift is gay haha...

If done right this will look killer I think haha.

That may be what it needs. As it sits though. No thanks.

because at some point a lift on a stock-ish vehicle goes from weekend wheeler to mall wheeler. On our trucks it seems like 5" is about the limit.

True, but I was looking through some of their random pics submitted by customers and it showed these types of kits actually being used.

That was yet another question I asked haha. Whether or not this kit was built for ground clearance to clear rocks and mud, or just to show off the pretty suspension haha...

And I like the term Mall Crawler... it sounds meaner hahaha :lol:

I've always been a fan of mall wheeler. It makes me think of someone with a big F250 on 40s tackling the "trails" that surround my local mall.
