  1. Yup that's the size. And actually I was wrong. At 70 mph the truck reads 71. So I'm over one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did 32.5 for my ko2s. It's only under by 1 mph. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Did the same thing about a month ago. Looked new to me. No signs of use. If it's the same dealer I got it from, they say most returns are because people order the wrong size. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I was fine with the 1.25 setting, except I didn't like the skipping ride on the highway. The cracks in the rode in the city didn't bother me. It was the jarring highway ride. I put the ranchos on based on the recommendations of the shop. The owner was familiar with the I-8 near glam is and said his 15 Silverado rode well with stock ranchos and an rc level. I believe a lot has to do with the coil spring preload. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Alright. Did 5100s on top setting. Noticeably stiffer coil on shitty road. SoCal highways are just bouncy the entire way. You feel it. 3rd setting from bottom, softer ride on same roads, but still too much more my liking. Mind you, I'm running KO2s for both settings. Went back to ranchos with readylift 2.25 and noticed an improved ride. Didn't feel like the dash was going to fall apart. I will say I liked the bilsteins for the composure they provided. The ranchos definitely drop off over a speed bump and things of that nature whereas the bilsteins kept the wheels planted. But the crappy SoCal roads just made for a jarring ride. I'm sure the bilstein at stock Height with spacers would be the best bet. My plan is 5100 stock setting with the 1.5" on top spacer. I also want to note that bilsteins at third setting (1.25") looked really good for leveling and I could barely notice the difference in appearance from highest setting. In my opinion, 1.5" is plenty fine for a level. If you say it's not level after a 1.5" level, it's probably because you know it's not the standard 2". Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Think you can throw in a picture from underneath the truck? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Can you post a side pic of the truck? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Is that just the sub or with the amp as well? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So I've been told. That's what I did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My truck reads an avg of 14 over 400 miles. Bilstein set at 3rd setting. KO2s 275/70/18. Average 13 mpg in town. Probably less since I haven't adjusted for tire size. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Has anybody ever experienced a very stiff ride on a freeway? I have bilsteins on the 2nd from top setting with 275/70/18 ko2s running 45 psi. Last week while driving through L.A., the entire cab began bouncing/shaking. Felt as if I had a flat. That was the worst case. Normally on the freeway it just feels like a very stiff front running over a ton of small speed bumps. Best I can describe it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Set on highest setting. Bilsteins all around. Rides firm, but in a good way. Really good off road though. Also going over speed bumps, doesn't toss you back n forth or hop over. Better than the ranchos it had before. I don't recall measurements but the difference front to back was around .75". So very little rake. Also tires are KO2 275/70R18 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
