Looking for more height and more clearance for your upper control arm? Suspension Maxx has the solution, with a fully tubular robust control arm. Engineered to give added ride height and added upper control arm clearance.  Fabricated from 1-3/4" x 3/16" wall, 80,000 tensile strength DOM tubing and weighing in heavier than OE cast design. We use high density polyurethane control arm bushings, with grease able design for a quite long life. Extra large control arm sleeves inside the control arm bushings to maximize clamping force. The Suspension Maxx MAXX travel upper control arms also comes with press in MOOG k6696 ball joints that will operate trouble free for thousands of miles. Don’t be fooled by uni- ball designed upper control arms, they are great for climates with low precipitation and occasional use.  But for a daily driven pickup, we believe the press in OE style ball joints is proven to last and hold up even in the most extreme conditions. All components are proudly made in the USA! Call for more info. We are also including our Stage 2 diff kit that will drop your front Differential an addition 3/8”.

Your factory length shocks can be reused with our stage 1 kit. The Bilsteins 5100  front shocks 24-253161  are a stock length and require a shock extension that is included with our kit. Bilstein does not offer a 2-3" longer shocks, so you must use the supplied shock extensions.

The FOX 2.0 part number 980-24-189 is an extended length and is designed to be used on 2-3" leveling kits.  Another difference between the Bilstein and Fox is the manufacturer limited warranty. The Bilstein 5100 shocks are covered by Bilstein's limited lifetime warranty. The Fox has a 1-year limited warranty and can be rebuilt/serviced with new seals and oil.

The secondary Diff drop is optional and you can install our kit without it if you do not feel comfortable doing the modification. This is an additional diff spacer to lower the differential housing inside the cross-member. Giving you the maximum amount of diff drop for the best possible CV axle angle.

The factory Control Arms, with flat, single plane has several limitations. The factory geometry limits downward suspension travel at close to 2.5” of lift from stock. This is done to protect the shock absorbers and drive axles.  Using our Stage 1 or stage 2 kit, we have already addressed these issues with extended the shock absorbers and lowering the front differential. The new MAXX travel A-arm is designed to have additional travel at your new lifted ride height. Working great for 2- 3” of lift over stock.  With improved ball joint angle from the arced geometry, you will get thousands of miles of ball joint life from the addition of the MAXX travel upper control arms that we include in our stage 1 & 2 kits.

So many factors play a key role in choosing the right size tire. It really boils down to choosing the right wheel. If you choose the wrong wheel specs you will find very few tires may work with that combination. Stock wheels are normally 8" wide with a high positive  +44 offset.    If you are going to an aftermarket wheel we recommend a 9" wide wheel for the best fit and clearances with a positive +18 offset.   With this combo or the factory wheel, you can clear up to a 35" x11.50" tire.  Some customers have also had success with the 35" x 12.50" tire but I prefer the 11.50 option. Listed below are some great sizes.

295/65/20 = 35.1" X  11.6"

275/65/20= 34.1" X 10.8"

295/70/18=34.3" X 11.6

285/75/18= 34.8"X 11.2"

If you do choose to use a 10" or 12" wide wheel with Negative offset in combination with our stage 1 or 2 kits we strongly suggest you stick to a 33" diameter tire.

As far as labor to install this kit. 3.0 -5.0 hours for installation + alignment.

Our kits are 100%  made in the USA and offer the highest quality components and craftsmanship.  Each tubular A-arm is formed from 3/16" wall x 1-3/4"  DOM tubing and tig welded for strength and durability.  We use 3/4 ton Moog factory press in ball joints that are designed to clear the factory wheels with up to a 35" tire.  We build our parts to the highest standard not down to a price.  Yes, there are cheaper kits out there, but I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for and nothing is free.

Product Reviews

Great products level kits and control arms
I originally just added the keys for leveling my Duramaxx. If you go the full 2.5", the upper A arms are too close to bumpstops and make a clacking noise when going over small bumps. I then purchased the upper A arms and they are every bit as nice as they say and then some. Very nice ride now. A arm install was easy. Differential spacers were a pain in the butt lying on the driveway, but I got it done and now the truck rides great. I was able to perfectly level the truck. I am at 43" from ground to bottom of wheel well. Very nice product.
