Straight Axle Conversions


Why should you buy your Straight Axle Conversion from ORU?

Off Road Unlimited (ORU) has been building Solid Axle Conversion Kits for GM Trucks for over 20 years. Over that span of time, they have fine-tuned their kits and widened their accessory offerings. Recently, they once again demonstrated their innovative style by offering a 4-link coil-over version for late model HD Series Trucks.

When you’re the original article, it’s pretty common to have “imitators” or “copy-cats”. And, as the saying goes “Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery”. Unfortunately, as is often the case, these imitators take shortcuts (at your expense) to try to get a share of the market. Some of these shortcuts amount to nothing more than copying ORU parts to save R&D time or using “cut & paste” methods to copy ORU installation instructions. Some others resort to advertising a lower price while giving you a “minimum” amount of parts and let you fend for yourself to figure out the rest of the kit on your own.

ORU conversion kits are the most complete on the market and still manufactured in the USA. There’s a good reason that we’ve been selling them for over 20 years, which no one else can claim. We stand behind our products 100%.

We have once again “fine-tuned” our manufacturing processes and worked with our supply partners to squeeze every penny out of our dollars in these trying times. This translates to new reduced prices to you, the consumer with no sacrifice whatsoever in quality or shortcuts in parts. So check out our new prices, you’ll be surprised what your money can buy. We thank you for your continued support. If you have any comments, please e-mail them to

Independent Front Suspension (IFS) Solid Axle Conversion Kits The ORU bolt-on conversion kit includes all the necessary brackets to convert your independent front suspension (IFS) to a solid axle system. The solid axle system uses leaf springs which will offer you a wider variety of lift height options that will accommodate larger tires along with more articulation than IFS. The solid axle with locking hubs can be equipped with a limited slip or locking differential for greater off-road capabilities. Off Road Unlimited offers an optional "+6" kit utilizing a 6" longer front leaf spring for a premium factory like ride.
