00 chevy 6 inch superlift

I am just looking for some feed back if any other chevy owners 00 or newer have this kit installed. I am popping sway bar end links every other week, and without the sway bar up front the ride is to mushy. I would like to hear of any other problems as well.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

The nuts are probably just workin' loose. I don't have the same kit, or year. 4" Trailmaster on a 97, but I have lost a total of 2 or 3 in the 3 or 4 years that I have had the lift. I still have not replaced the last one. I would say to put some lock-tite or jb weld on the nut when you get new ones. With the way that the links are designed, the nut just gets lossend from all the shifting of weight.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

how did you loose that many inches over 2 or 3 years. You probably did alot of off roading or it has been carrying a heavy load or something.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

Huh? Inches? I'm gettin' old but I aint loosin' any inches.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. I was talking about the sway bar end links, the spacers, the stock ones are replaced with longer ones with the lift. I have lost, I think, 2 of them since the lift. One fell out, replaced it, then the other fell out later, still out. They have a nut that threads onto the end to hold em in place.....when the nut gets backed off, the link is in a verticle position, and it just falls out. When I get a replacment one, I'm gonna lock tite those suckers.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

Hey guys, thanks for the laugh. I sure hope big willy didn't take your insult to personal,too funny. Anyway I have replaced the end links with a custom peace I had made @ local machine shop. I will let you all know if they work.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

My kit just re-uses the stock links. I have lost both of mine but I feel that is my fault. Not put on tight enough I guess. My last lifted IFS with same kit I never lost any. I don't even feel a difference without them.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

Yeah, I think Superlift has you flip the sway bar over and re-use the old ones, or they did at one time. 00Z714x4, how much did it cost you for the links? Got a pic of 'em? I talked to 4wpw and the doof working with me couldn't find anything as far as part numbers...LOL. Those guys are classic, man! I think all he found was a skyjacker part number...they wanted 31.95. I'm gonna ask my cousin if he can still get parts at wholesale....I think he can, because he is thinking about getting a website to sell off-road parts since he sold his old store. I may see if he can get it for me. What I should do it take the other link off, rip out that sawybar and save a tea spoon of gas.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]Hell, I can't feel any difference either.

Re: 00 chevy 6 inch superlift

I bought my new links, which I have yet to install, at Carquest. $38 something, but they are Moog. They are of a better desing than those of stock or energy suspension. Instead of having a million pieces, you know the shaft the nut the 4 polyurethane bushings the 4 metel washers etc.etc. With the moog the one metal washer and bushing is already atatched to the bolt then the other bushing have the washer atatched to them and the last one hase the nut atatched to it. When I do get around to installing them it looks like it will be a lot easier.
