2008 Gmc Sierra Suspension Systems

The suspension system on your car has two main jobs:
  1. Keeping your tires in good contact with the road as you travel
  2. Making sure your spine is still intact once you get there


Too much of one goal might allow the other goal to suffer a bit (depending on how you drive), so there is a balance to hit here. Depending on the vehicle's intended purpose, that balance might bias to one side more than another. Where we come in, is that we give you the tools to tweak that balance for your intended purpose, or maybe return it back to where it should be, if you're sitting on some worn out parts.

Diving deeper, your suspension system is also largely responsible for ensuring even tire wear, giving your steering a relatively neutral platform to do its thing, and allow for appropriate weight transfer under braking/acceleration/cornering to keep your car going where you point it.

Not sure which 2008 GMC Sierra Suspension Systems are right for you? We have over 6546 customer reviews, with an average rating of 4.5, to help you find exactly what you're looking for. Here's what some of our customers have said:

"I noticed my ride was a little shuttered and cornering had diminished. My step dad bought a 2013 sierra and after driving it compared to my 2008 sierra crew cab I knew my truck needed shocks. With 72k miles I replaced the stock tiny shocks to bilstein 4600 HD. I was so pleased! My truck has 20's and rides better than my step dads 2013. Bilstein really is the best !!" —Tyler B from Bradenton, FL bought a Bilstein Heavy Duty Shocks for a 2008 GMC Sierra.

"Air lift leveling kit works great. Just as intended. Recommended for anyone carrying any load or using a gooseneck trailer." —Matthew E from Harrisonburg, VA bought an Air Lift Air Bag Suspension Kit for a 2008 GMC Sierra.

"I still maintained my factory ride and everything feels like the factory ride however, I have not been off road with them yet. I have confidence that they will be great. Installation was only 15-20 minutes on my 08' Sierra Crew Z71." —Mark F from Las Cruces, NM bought a Skyjacker Lift Kits for a 2008 GMC Sierra, 1500, 4WD.

"After adding a 2" front leveling kit I decided the truck (2008 GMC Sierra Crew 4X4 1500) seemed to now sit too level and slightly lower in the back end when my boat trailer was hooked up. These did the trick by adding a slight "rake" back into the truck by putting these blocks in place of the factory 1" blocks on the rear axle/springs. It doesn't seem to have affected the ride and when combined with a front 2" kit really made the truck look 100% better in my opinion while maintaining the stock shocks and ride quality. I considered air bags, etc., but this was the much cheaper and easiest install way to go IMO. The reason I say this kit was good and not excellent is that I think the U-bolts are too long for this application. They work fine and the install was simple, but there must be approximately 2 plus inches of extra thread below the nuts after these are tightened up! That was a lot of extra cranking to take up all the slack and these nuts do not turn easily at all. I would recommend an impact driver." —John W from Third Lake, IL bought a ReadyLIFT Rear Block Kits for a 2008 GMC Sierra, 1500.

"Purchased these for my 2008 GMC Seirra 2500HD Diesel 6" lifted for replacement of a leaky rear shock. Fitting was perfect and installation was an ease. Great Value in a Shock under 50 bucks." —Michael R from Long Beach, WA bought a Skyjacker Lift Kits for a 2008 GMC Sierra.

"I was surprised by how beefy the lift blocks and u-bolts were. The Torsion keys were also very stout and this was one of the only kits with shock extensions which for the Z-71 E-shocks was a must. Great Kit." —Ryan R from Edenton, NC bought a Traxda Lift Kits for a 2008 GMC Sierra, 1500, light-duty, 4WD.

"I got exactly 3in lower in the rear. Nice quality product. Easy to install. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get there truck leveled out. C" —Charles G from Murrells Inlet, SC bought a Belltech Shackles and Hangers for a 2008 GMC Sierra, 1500, 2WD, regular cab, short bed.

Air Lift Wireless Air Compressor System

overall a very nice setup

The installation was not too difficult; although the instructions could have been better. I would have given five stars if the install instructions were better. Otherwise, it is working great. I agree with Air Lift's recommendation to use a pipe cutter to cut your tubing. View more reviews...

Tuff Country Air Bag Spacers

3 inch spacers for air bags

Well for starters what got my attention was the price, second quality hardware included and finally good welds on the spacers. Beats going to your local hardware store for bolts n washers, when everything is included for a smooth installation for trucks with rear lift blocks. Air bags are now properly convulated, instead of being stretched out without spacers. View more reviews...

Air Lift WirelessOne Air Control System

Good choice

Easy install. The instructions were easy to follow. I thought I may not have enough airline to route to the existing lines on the air bags. Air lift sent me another 10 foot length for free. Ended up I was just there with what they sent in the kit. Good Price from AA. The $50 rebate was the icing on the cake for me to buy this kit. The remote works really good. I'm impressed!

Your Suspension Not Cutting It? Top 10 Suspension Parts to Consider In 2021

Friends don’t let friends buy bad parts. Throw away that eBay link for that $200 coilover set, and don’t even think about cutting those springs! The truth is that if we’re talking about common upgrades on our cars/trucks, I would imagine that the suspension is one of the most often misunderstood systems on our cars.
