California-based aftermarket parts company Cognito Motorsports is offering two new lift kits for the Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD, with both a 10-inch lift kit and a 12-inch lift kit available for those heavy-duty truck owners looking to add some serious ride height to their pickup, all without sacrificing on ride quality.
“We have bundled everything you need in a lift kit for your GM 2500/3500 with high-quality Cognito components,” the aftermarket company states. “There is no guesswork. Cognito components are engineered, manufactured, and assembled in the USA.”
The new kits provide either 10 inches or 12 inches of lift in the front, depending on the kit selected, while the Deaver Leaf Pack with Cognito Block and U-Bolt kit provides 8 inches or 9 inches of lift in the rear. The kit also includes the SM Series Ball Joint Upper Control Arms and SM Series Compression Struts, a Pitman and Idler Arm Support kit, and extended stainless steel brake lines. Also featured are Fox 2.0 performance Series remote reservoir shocks.
Properly installed, the kit will level your Chevy Silverado HD or GMC Sierra HD front to rear, and maintains proper droop level for the sake of ride quality. The kit also promises corrected CV joint angles, and provides enough spacing for Chevy Silverado HD / GMC Sierra HD models to run 40-inch by 13.5-inch tires on a 10-inch-wide wheel with 4.5-inch backspacing.
The new Cognito lift kits fit 2020- through 2021-model-year Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD models, including both 2500HD and 3500HD, as well as both 2WD and 4WD configurations. Pricing starts at $7,484.65 for the 10-inch lift kit, and $7,619.60 for the 12-inch lift kit, per the Cognito website. Cognito estimates approximately 18 hours for DIY installers. The kits will be available to ship in August.
