Silverado 3 Inch Lift Before and After (Review & Buying Guide)

Silverado 3 Inch Lift Before and After
This 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of the few trucks we haven’t installed a lift kit on. The vehicle is no longer available, but it will give you an idea of what one of our vehicles looks like without a suspension or body lift.

While we do occasionally offer non-lifted trucks, you are far more likely to find a lifted model for sale at Ultimate Rides.

1. Rough Country 3.5″ Lift Kit with V2 Monotube Shocks and Forged Control Arms (ASIN – B083VXK2J4)

Compatibility: 2019-2021 Chevy Silverado 1500

Rough Country is likely our favorite lift kit manufacturer, and they comprise most of today’s short list. The first option we’d recommend you look at is this kit for modern Silverado 1500 trucks. It’s a 3.5 inch lift kit, and features high-quality parts that you’ll be glad to rely on. Like other Rough Country kits, the product features a lifetime replacement warranty, but you’ll likely never even have to think about it. The kit utilizes heavy-duty materials to ensure it’s long-lasting, and safe for use. This kit offers great performance, and we’d recommend it for any truck on which it fits.

2. Rough Country 3″ Lift Kit with N3 Shock Absorbers and Forged Torsion Bars (ASIN – B08285PBPW)

Compatibility: 2020-2021 Chevy Silverado 2500HD

Do you drive a Silverado 2500HD? If so, and the model years line up for you, this is the kit we’d recommend. It’s another option for Rough Country, and puts you squarely at 3 inches of lift. Once again, you’ll find a lifetime warranty here, but with such high-quality parts you probably won’t need it. This kit also includes a set of reliable N3 shock absorbers, which themselves come with a three-year warranty. Overall, you should find that once installed this kit offers stunning performance for your pickup truck.

3. Supreme Suspensions 3.5″ Front 3″ Rear Leveling Lift Kit (ASIN – B00IOAHI5S)

Compatibility: 2007-2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500

If your truck features uneven suspension that makes the first end lower than the rear by about half an inch, this kit will help. It will raise both the front and rear end of the vehicle, but raises the front by a slightly higher amount to ensure they’re even. The kit comes from Supreme Suspensions, another top manufacturer on the market alongside Rough Country. We think you’ll be happy as can be once you get this kit installed on your Silverado truck.

4. Rough Country 3.5″ Suspension Lift Kit with V2 Monotube Shocks (ASIN – B07YSX813P)

Compatibility: 2007-2018 Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500 4WD

The last item on our list is a simple re-tread of the one the kits we already shared. The main difference is that it covers a different, very broad selection of model years. As long as you drive a 4WD model of the Silverado 1500, there’s a very good chance this kit will fit on your truck if the last one didn’t. It features all the same benefits as our number one pick on the list, and we’d recommend it to any pickup driver who wants to lift their ride.

Factors of Focus: Find the Best Lift Kit

If you know that you need a lift kit for the Chevy Silverado and you’ve narrowed down your options to 3 inch kits, much of your work is already done. There are tons and tons of lift kits available to buy, and cutting down your search is extremely helpful. From here, it’s just a matter of choosing the right model (1500, 2500 or 3500) and determining the best quality.

Distinguishing quality between lift kits may seem difficult at first, but it’s actually not too hard. Price is going to play a big factor, and so is the material that the kit is made from. The types of kits that actually alter your truck’s suspension, or at least do more than just lift it up with a set of blocks, can start to get pretty expensive. There are plenty of budget sets out there, but they won’t always offer the same ride quality. It’s up to you to determine your balance of quality and budget so you can make the right decision for your truck.

Chevy Silverado 3 Inch Lift Before and After

A 3 inch lift kit is a good place to start for beginners for a variety of reasons. It offers a noticeable difference compared to factory models, but it shouldn’t be too intimidating to try out. With a lift kit installed, drivers will have an opportunity to install larger tires and wheels as well. These can offer great performance enhancements, especially for off-road action.

You’ll also notice a big difference just simply driving on the road. You’ll be able to see over most of the other vehicles around you. This means you will have to be more careful when you’re up close to vehicles, people and other objects. Your perspective is different, and that’s a change you’ll have to get used to. However, it’s safe to say that many drivers have a hard time ever going back to driving a factory-standard pickup truck or vehicle ever again.
