Update on the 6\" Superlift ZR2 kits
Got off the phone with the R&D guy just now. The brackets I saw for the multiple shock kit are going to be a part of the kit. They are on him to get the multiple shock set up finished. What I saw when I was there is almost finished already. Maybe by the end of the week or middle of next week. They have a 2001 kit on a GM Blazer & 99 for GM with automatics with no problems with driveline vibration. For some reason the 2000 SEMI ZR2 Blazer had some. Now the front will be a 3 shock multiple deal if you want it. The original shock plus 2 on the hoop. The upper A arms are WELL gusseted and look like racing arms with strengthening braces full length down both sides, REAL NICE. The optional skid plate they have I saw will be a part of the deal is worthless and not worth bolting on. Go to your local fab shop and have your own made instead. It will be somewhere around $1500 for the whole kit. If the multiple shock setup is an add on option, then the eyes for the top will be already for you on the brackets. They will not have stainless steel brake lines for the front, but will have extensions to help keep the cost of the kit down. I was invited to come up there again during the week on regular business hours to get more detailed information from the guy that engineered the kit. That kit will fit Highriders and ZR2 pickups as well. It is NOT for regular trucks, because the frame is wider and the bottom bracing would not fit anyway. Now a guy could buy one and remake the bottom bracing probably, but Tmaster has a kit for $989 from Tyres1 or do a solid alxe conversion would be your best bet for the regular guys out there. This is a ZR2 kit. The tentitive release date is still next month for retail sales.
