Nope lift kits don't exist in Europe as far as I know of. Definitely not in my country. Could ask but in my experience I know more about USA cars / parts etcc than any parts store I visited so far.. Neither do they import anything from the USA..
Damn I hate my country

I see your point though!
I'd prefer a knuckle lift kit to a bracket one, but I don't think they made any knuckle kits for the K-series Chevrolet.
Also the extra leafs instead of just blocks appeal to me.
Only thing is it says new rims are required with a backspacing of 4.5" or less.
Hopefully my stock rims will fit for a few months at least because I won't have the money to get new rims and tires right away
OK - someone correct me if I'm wrong on the terminology but the part in the center is what I termed "cradle"..

There's a significant difference between the 2!

Generally the LiftKits for less stuff - looks like it

If I had to only choose between the 2... for an extra 300.00 (usd) I'd pick the one on the right!

I'm in a bit of a financial struggle lately so unfortunately not able to do a lot. Yesterday the stuttering came back also. Gonna test my lift pump asap.
Also the truck is gonna go in lockup tomorrow since they started using salt on the roads. Will probably stay in the lockup until the end of February, then finally the big mods are gonna come

The proper flow :

The 1994+ Model Year lift pump should deliver fuel with a minimum volume of at least 0.24 liter (1/2 pint) in 15 seconds and pressure of 3 psi minimum with the engine cranking, the ESO disconnected, and the fuel line open after the filter to an approved canister

The easiest way to test the lift pump is to have the engine running, open the T Valve for a minimum of 30 seconds and let fuel flow from the drain line into a container.

If during that timeframe the engine dies or there is no fuel flowing from the line, the lift pump is too weak to support the engine.
So I just tried this. Connected a transparent tube to the T Valve into a cup, had the truck idle and opened up the valve. A few drops came out, nothing more and the truck died after just 11 seconds... Guess I found my problem?

Will order a new one today. Could it also be dirt building op in the little filter in the fuel tank itself? Meaning that the pump cannot suck enough fuel from the tank? Hopefully a new lift pump will solve it...

I also heard about these Fass 90 fuel pumps. Not sure if they're for the 6.5 but they definately are available for the Duramax. Might upgrade to one of those in the future

As with any vehicle that is 20+ years old, preventative maintenance is a must.


When you fill a tank with a few thousand liters of fuel over those years things will need attention like rusty, leaking fuel lines, clogged fuel sock, tank delamination, etc..

The AC/Delco EP 158 is the lift pump of choice if you can find one in your area.
It has a slightly better fuel flow as reported here in the forum
