2006 Chevy Silverado Lift Kit
Without a lift kit, a pickup truck often sags towards the front end. Additionally, you won’t have as much coverage to pass over rocks and other debris. You also will be forced to stick to the standard tire size. There are many benefits to upgrading!

1. Supreme Suspensions 1999-2007 Silverado 1500 Adjustable 1″-3″ Front + 2″ Rear Lift Kit with Performance Shocks (ASIN – B00IOAHMZE)

Our favorite 2006 Chevy Silverado lift kit comes from Supreme Suspensions. With it, not only will you have the ability to raise the overall suspension of your vehicle, but you can also adjust the front from between one to three inches to make sure it’s level with the read end. That’s a problem that crops up on pickup trucks time and time again. With this lift kit, you can eliminate the issue entirely. The torsion keys make adjusting the front end simple as can be.

This kit also includes a set of pro performance shocks. If you’re looking for a way to set your truck apart from the rest, this is a strong way to go. It’ll offer a strong lift to your suspension without negatively affecting performance. If anything, you’ll find an improvement due to the new shocks. The parts themselves are well-made and reliable, cementing this as our number one choice for your Silverado if it’s a 4WD model.

2. TORCH 3″ Full Lift Kit for 1999-2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 4×4 (ASIN – B07NDNDDMK)

Our next lift kit comes from manufacturer TORCH. This kit will raise your front and rear suspension by an even three inches. This kit includes all the hardware you’ll need for installation, and features a lifetime warranty. While we feel confident you won’t ever need to use it, there’s no denying it’s a nice thing to keep in your back pocket. While TORCH isn’t as well-known as brands like Supreme Suspensions, this product has an excellent reputation, and it may be enough to put their name in the running for another brand to keep an eye on in the future.

3. MotoFab Lifts 3″ Front and 2″ Rear Leveling Lift Kit 1999-2006 Silverado 2WD (ASIN – B0728HSGNS)

This next MotoFab lift kit sets itself apart because it serves two purposes. Instead of a standard kit, you’ll instead find a combination lift and leveling kit. If your front end has a bit of a sag in the front, this kit will raise your front end one inch higher than the rear. If you measured correctly, this will provide you with an even raised suspension. MotoFab is a reliable manufacturer, and you can rest assured that their products are made with strong aluminum billet and powder-coated to last. This kit is specifically made for 2WD models of the Silverado. If it is the right match for your vehicle’s needs, you can count on this as a reliable kit.

4. Supreme Suspensions 1999-2007 Silverado 1500 4WD Adjustable 1″-3″ Front Lift 2″ Rear Blocks (ASIN – B00IKW5EPG)

At number four, we have another take on the Supreme Suspensions 2006 Chevy Silverado lift kit at the top of our list. This time, it’s the same thing but without the performance shocks. If you agree that this kit is your best option but you already have a quality set of shocks, this should be perfect for you. It includes the same high-end construction, adjustable torsion keys and more. Just be sure that your pickup is 4WD, otherwise this kit will not fit. If it is, then you have the all clear to purchase and get started with installation. It’s expected that the process should take from between 2 to 4 hours depending on your experience level.

5. TORCH 3″ Front 2″ Rear Lift Kit for 1999-2007 Silverado 1500 4WD (ASIN – B07NDNGGG1)

Next, we have another TORCH kit to share with you. This is another combination leveling and lift kit, with three inches of lift in the front and two in the rear. This bolt-on kit comes with everything you need to get it installed, and once again comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s specifically made for 4WD models, so be sure that it’s compatible before you buy. It may not hurt to have a look at a couple of video tutorials if you’ve never done anything like this before as well. While there are instructions included, if you’re like us you’ll have a much easier time seeing how it’s done first.

6. Freedom OffRoad 5″ Front 3″ Rear Leveling Lift Kit 1999-2006 Silverado 1500 2WD (ASIN – B07W1C4ZVD)

The final kit we would like to share with you today comes from Freedom OffRoad. It’s more of an extensive lift kit, and it will certainly be difficult to install this one on your own. However, it provides a mighty five-inch lift to your front end, and adds three inches in the rear. It’s made for the 2WD configuration of the Silverado, so if that applies to your truck and you have sagging front suspension, this could be the perfect lift kit for you. If you decide you want this much of a boost, we recommend reaching out to your mechanic or your friends here at Ultimate Rides for installation assistance.

2006 Chevy Silverado Lift Kit Buying Guide

When setting out to upgrade your pickup truck with a lift kit, there are a few key points we think should be focused on. First and foremost, you’ll need to make sure you buy a kit that is compatible with your truck. In this guide, we’ve narrowed it down to the 2006 Chevy Silverado. However, when you’re out shopping on your own, you’ll be met with a huge variety of lift kits, and you’ll need to do a bit of research to find what works for your truck. Make sure you get the make, model, model year and driving configuration down to a tee. Otherwise, you may end up ordering a kit that will be useless for your ride.

Once you’ve made sure you got the right kit for your truck, it’s time to start thinking about the actual quality of the product. Everything from the material that the parts are made from to the extra features that come along with it can play a role here. If you’re a newcomer, it can be difficult to figure out what is high-quality and what is actually low-quality but dressed up in some nice wording. Experience will help you sort out the difference, but in the meantime customer reviews can be a good barometer on the quality and reliability of a product.
