Just got this lift installed monday on my '04 CC. Lift looks amazing, best looking lift in my opinion cause of the non torsion bar drop. It isn't as flashy as a RIZE, but thats in another league of lift. lol. The truck rides better than stock. Only downfall, especially if you get the narrow track is the turning radius suffers tremendously. Getting in and out of parking spots at the mall etc. is very tight and usually have to do a 2 point turn. I am running 35x12.50x17's on mine. one could easily clear 37's. I am more than happy overall with the lift.

Lifetime warranty, no questions asked. and the cheap price to begin with are a bonus too!

i will vouch for cognito. it is an arguably better kit than the BDS, and cognito has a great name and are known for great kits. But they are significantly more too. I had heard great things about the BDS and didnt feel paying the price difference to go to cognito was worth it. Time will tell though...

true cognito is not a cheap kit. i just like some of the things they have done for the front end.

bottom line, i guess. if you've got the money. Go cognito, no questions asked. If your on a budget, i dont think you can go wrong with the BDS. But it hasn't been out that long, so long term durability and etc. is unknown i think? cognito is proven. But i am really happy with my BDS so far.

they are N-Fab. They looks awesome, built good. The only thing I don't like about them is they mount to the body of the truck not the frame. You have to drill holes in the pinch welds on the bottom of the body and bolt through. Not the best idea in my opinion.

It is easy. just time consuming. It took me about 10 hours with some friends.






i love my lift. only got about 1500 miles on it until 3 bad injecotrs broke a few pistons. Only thing i didn't like was how the bump stops fit on the lower a-arms. They rub very slightly on the shocks.

i am running nitto tg 37x11.5 20r
