blackout07 replied to adamatic88's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Accessories & ModificationsIMO coilivers are a luxury and and in no way necessary. So if you're looking to save then don't get them. In all honesty they're a show piece for most trucks that will never really see Offroad use.

blackout07 replied to jtupper's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I would typically agree with the above statement except for when all you're paying extra for is branding. Most of the reputable replicas are made by the same folks as "GM" wheels. I've had a couple of sets and not one issue.
Zone is great quality. Same as BDS.
Lol at RC "tech" support. Notice he did not answer all of your questions? You can search the web high and low and not find a single company with more bad reviews than RC. I'll answer your questions. Their control arms are notoriously faulty (search and you shall see). The diff drops will give you a 1.5" drop, which is sufficient but leaves you with the equivalent of 2" of angle on your CVs. Your tie rods and lower control arms will remain in the stock position, which in addition to the above means that no...you will NOT have stock suspension angles. That kit has been ripped off and thrown away at almost the same rate as used condoms. If you want a kit that maintains front end geometry, then look at kits that include taller spindles (knuckles), and a subframe. The sub frame that, for whatever reason,scares people to death, is what makes room for a greater diff drop and corrects LCA angles. That's what you want if you want flat angles and relatively no added stress on parts. It's not hard to find out what's good and what's not with all of the various forums that have beaten this topic to death for years, but I think your mind is already made up. Best of luck.
The RC link gives an error and the Fabtech kit is precisely what I warned against above. No subframe = no good. Seriously just remove the 3" spacer, drop to a 2.5" leveling kit and then do a 1.5" body lift. Bingo! 4" of clean, part and money saving lift. Well under budget.

Budget lifts are hot sells for those who don't know better. They are band-aid kits and do more harm in the end. Much like the 3" kit you have now. These cheap lifts use a modest diff drop to correct CV angles and some include new UCAs that are angled to prevent them from bottoming out on the droop stop, but do very little to correct the angle of the ball joints. Your TREs and LCAs meanwhile, still suffer the full brunt of a 4" lift. The result? Rapidly worn parts and a stiff ride. Sure people will say, "Mine is great." "Mine rides better than stock." But let's be honest. Most people are inclined to defend what they buy, especially when they've been told better. And never trust the shop SELLING it to give you an honest recommendation. And it's a contradiction of common sense to think a lifted truck with heavy wheels and tires will ride better than a stock setup. That's just never going to be the case. So with that said, to get a decent 4" suspension lift, you will ultimately pay the same price for a 6" kit. If money is a sticking point go down to a 2.5" leveling kit and add a 1.5" body lift.

blackout07 replied to Doobs41378's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Yes I'm aware. Keeping up with quotes can be challenging.
blackout07 replied to Mossyoakglock's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Nah you won't be able to create enough room. It's very easy to remove the strut. I usually don't remove anything but the strut, but that may be difficult given the additional leveling kit.
