2005 1500HD GMC. It has a Cognito 10-12 HD kit set @ 10", Cognito upper arms, dual hoops and 6x Sway-A-Way piggy back res. (*) Some factory parts and all Cognito parts were powder coated red to match the trucks color. 37x13.50x20 Toyo muds on KMC 20x10 Chrome HOSS wheels.

Well over all the kit is a straight foward install. This kit takes care of the void in the 4-6 market that Cognito never had. I recommend this kit 100% to a do-it-yourself guy or for the guy that has been there and did that and wants more out of a suspension package. Cognito insn't the company to market a "budget" kit. Instead they want to custom tailor a kit for your needs. Please feel free to contact, Nick @ Nor Cal Truck if you have any questions.


Cognito 4-6 kit Pros:
- Spindle kit for strength, with only a 1/2" wider stance on either side
- Non-Torsion bar drop, for great looks & off-road clearance
- $216.00 Idler & Pitman Arm brace kit INCLUDED
- Set @ 4" keep factory CV angles
- Accomodates 33" tires standard, & 35" tires with available upgrades that will not compromise your ride
- Front diff skid plate
- Low-profile front drop cross member
- Capable of achieving factory alignment specs
- Will accept factory length front shocks if desired
- Will fit 2001-2007 2WD & 4WD 8-Lug GM vehicles
- Will accept up to a 5.5" backspaced wheel
- Install can be completed within 6-8 hours

Cognito 4-6 kit Cons:
- Front diff upper-ear must be cut to clear steering components (new upper ear replacement mount available through Cognito)

OK,
We didn't do the lift install but this guy needed the Nor-Cal Truck love. So we hooked him up with:

* Chrome Cognito dual shock hoops
* Cognito upper a-arms
* 6x Chrome with Black not Blue Fox 2.0 res shocks
* Vital billet polished shock clamps
* AMP electric steps

Red, chrome and clean. I really liked this truck and hope you will too.

2005 GM 2500HD LLY
Pro-comp lift
20x12 Weld Cheyenne
33" Swamper IROK's

Do you happen to have any photos of a 9-11" CST kit on a 4wd Chevy or GMC HD by any chance?

Nick, I know I asked you earlier about the 4-6 but I believe it's too tall for what I want to run ( 285's on PYO's or 305's on 16x10). What is the hub center to fender opening measurement on the 2-3" ?
Thanks; Chris
