Finding the Perfect 2004 Tahoe Lift Kit

You may have noticed a major uptick in lifted SUVs over the past several years, and you’re not alone. Drivers all across America are outfitting their vehicles with lift kits for various reasons, and it’s making it harder to find them available out in the wild. No matter where you’re located, if you are currently looking for a ride with a lift kit, we have some good news for you.

Ultimate Rides has clean preowned vehicles in great condition, many of which have already been outfitted with lift kits and other modifications. If you would instead prefer to update your current vehicle by having a lift kit installed, we can do that as well. We’re the number one place to go no matter if you want to modify your current Tahoe or to have the best 2004 Tahoe lift kit installed.

If you plan on upgrading, the real trick is picking out the right lift kit. First, you have to make sure that you are choosing a compatible product, meaning it will be the right fit. Next, it’s important to choose a manufacturer that you can trust. You are putting your very safety in their hands, after all. We’ve got a couple of lift kits we want to talk about first, and then we’ll give you further information on installation as well as what else you can find at Ultimate Rides.

Improper installation of a lift kit can cause serious issues, and not all lift kits included all the required parts, such as the shocks system shown above.

Rough Country 2004 Tahoe Lift Kit Six Inches

The first of our two recommendations is this full suspension six inch lift kit manufacturer by Rough Country. While you can likely find cheaper models out there, it’s important to take into consideration that you nearly always get what you pay for when it comes to lift kits. Rough Country is a trusted brand, and when properly installed you can count on their safety and effectiveness. Rough Country products almost always include a lifetime replacement warranty, so you won’t have to harbor any fears about getting screwed over down the line. With this kit, you’ll have everything you need to raise up the suspension of your 2004 Tahoe by six inches, allowing you to put on larger tires and take your baby off the road without any fear of damage to the undercarriage.

Using this lift kit, you will get all the benefits of having a lifted ride without the setbacks that many face. With proper installation, you should see no major negative effect on the handling and factory ride of your Tahoe, but installation can sometimes be tricky, so that’s something to keep in mind. That said, this kit should have all the pieces you’ll need, so you don’t have to worry about getting into the middle of the process and realizing you are missing some key parts. Customers have great things to say about this product, and we think you will too.

Rough Country 2004 Tahoe Leveling Kit Two Inches

Leveling lift kits serve a different purpose than full suspension lift kits. They’re primarily used to fix uneven suspension, which is a problem that is incredibly common among ever newer SUVs and trucks. With this Rough Country kit, you’ll be able to take care of the obnoxious difference in front and rear suspension, and they’re generally much easier to install compared to full suspension kits. They likely won’t allow you to add on any larger custom tires, but they should certainly fix your suspension issues. This kit in particular will raise your ride two inches in the front and one inch in the rear, so if you have a difference of one inch it will fix you right up.

There are other brands available for both full suspension and leveling lift kits, but Rough Country is our tried and true favorite. With the right set of hands working on installation, you’ll have an easy and permanent fix to the suspension issues that have been plaguing you. Installation can still be a little bit of a hassle, especially without all the right tools, so don’t be afraid to reach out to Ultimate Rides if you find that you need assistance.

Installation Information and Tips

As we briefly mentioned before, while it is possible to complete installation on your own at home for these lift kits, it’s not always easy, especially without all the right tools. If you’ve purchased yourself a 2004 Tahoe lift kit, we highly recommend checking out a video tutorial like the one above before you get started. Once you view this tutorial, you’ll have a much better idea on whether this is a job you can handle on your own or not. If you have done work similar to this before and you have all the right tools, in our estimation it should take between four and six hours for you to install a full suspension lift kit, and slightly less time for a leveling kit.

However, if you realize that you may not want to attempt to install this on your own, we’re here to help. Ultimate Rides service center offers reasonably priced, trustworthy repairs and installations, including lift kits. Give us a call today to get a price quote, and we can hopefully answer any questions you have about installing this kit. We have a strong passion for custom lifted SUVs and trucks, and there’s no doubt in our minds that we’ll be able to solve your problem for you.
