Just had mine done with the lowering links. Great product. Easy to do. Yes the rear camber is out a little.

A tip for headlamp adjustment. Mark the spots on the wall with tape where your headlights center before adding the links (while stock). After the install, adjust the headlamps back to center on the tape. Takes the guess work out of the headlamp adjustment.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Just a follow up to yesterday's post...


I got back on the phone yesterday afternoon, and contacted SPC Performance again, and was able to talk with one of their techs, about the camber adjustment plate that they make, especially with respect to being able to adjust camber, especially for lowered vehicles.

He clarified that their kit will now allow for more camber adjustment range, as you're limited by the length of the existing slots in the frame. Their kit, however, will make it easier to make the adjustments, within that range.

A couple of other things that he mentioned, however, is that to his observations in the field, that many trucks, and possibly GCs, have a pretty stable camber curve, and moderate lowering won't take you out of the range of adjustment, as provided by the factory mounting poins.

More importantly, he also mentioned that he was under the impression that SPC is working on a "hub/brake caliper shim kit", that would bolt in between the hub and spindle, altering the camber by a set amount. Shims would also be included, to keep the brake calipers in proper relationship to the rotors. This type of kit would provide a fixed amount of change, that would hopefully get your GC back to a point where the OE adjustment slots would again be usable, to set the camber.

For anyone wondering about going up you can go up all the way to or2 and ride around all day like that but thats as high as a stock airbag setup can go the system will just keep trying to raise and overheat the compressor and have to cool down in a constant loop.
Also the front wheels end up riding on the outside edge of the tires real bad unless everything gets aligned to that height. Back didnt have any tire issues but did have the banging over little bumps and speed bumps. It got a little annoying so before i put new tires on and got everything aligned nice i went back down to stock in the back and barely up in the front. I can raise it up for off road purposes. Tires look pretty bad ass for an all terrain and now i actually have some sidewall to cushion some rocks.

Can you give the measurements for the front rods? I am wanting to go up .5".

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

I put the links on a day ago. Went real smooth. I used the Zoro ends. They seem fine, just not quite as tight as the OE links. Has anyone had a problem with them popping off and it also seems like every time I measured it it is .25" off somewhere. I measured it in my garage and driveway. Do any of the folks who have done this mod see the change? It may be normal, I'm just curious.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

The ends i have haven't had any problems popping off. I just ordered the same ones that were mentioned at the beginning of this thread. They also came with little retaining pins that would lock the ball in if you were having problems. I kept the pins but haven't used them as I never had any issues.

I was wondering about them, too. In the first pictures that were shown in this thread, these were not in place, and I was wondering if the natural friction of the socket itself, was keeping the ends snapped on to the pins. I was also wondering why the pins that come as part of the joints, weren't being used. Are they a different diameter than the OE pins?

Thanks. No issues on mine either. I was just curious. I almost put the clips in, but the top fronts would be a royal pain to get off I think. The sockets feel snug, maybe just not quite as tight as the OEM links. That may just be my imagination though. Either way I put the OEM links in my console. Worst case I just pop them on and keep rolling.
