  1. Hey all. I've got a 2011 gmc sierra 4wd. Last year I had a rc 2.5" leveling kit put on, and now it's time for new shocks. I'm definitely going with bilstein, but my question is which model? I know the 5100 series has the leveling option, which bring me to my question. Seeing as how my leveling kit decompresses my shocks to an extent, would I be better off using the 5100 series to compensate for that? Or should I go with the 4600 and keep it basically how it is now? New to the mod ding game on trucks so I figured it would be better to ask instead of assuming. Thanks, Drew
  2. Just noticed there is a forum specifically for suspension. If a mod feels that would be better suited please move this. Thank you.

  4. I've got an Excalibur Omega remote start that came on my 2011 gmc Sierra 1500. When I press the start button on the remote the entire dash lights up and the radio comes on as it would right before the ignition should fire up. However it doesn't start and the dash reads "service vehicle maintenance system". I would assume this is connected, but I've never owned a vehicle with remote start, or a vehicle with a dash readout for that matter. Anyone else have this issue, or know what the problem is?
  5. I've looked at those and really like them. From what I've found they cost a bit more than the St maxx in comparable sizes. If I found the right price I certainly wouldn't be opposed to them.
  6. New guy. Figured I'd post up a pic of my recent purchase.
  7. Great thanks for the picture. That does look nice. Exactly what I'm looking for. I'm at the age where I want something that looks nice, but doesn't look over the top, and still functions well. What tires are you running? Anyone have any negatives about the cooper st maxx? Obviously what tire is the best, is a pretty open ended question. But if anyone an impart some wisdom, I'll take all I can get. I need something that drives nice(as nice as to be expected from an aggressive tire), and can handle thick mud, snow, and the occasional ice. Snow and mud being most important.
  8. Awesome thank you. I thought it would work but that's a lot of money to drop without being 100%.
  9. Sorry for the title goof. Meant to say noob. Auto correct can suck.
  10. Hey wanted to introduce myself. My names Drew. Just recently purchased a 2011 gmc Sierra sle. My first nice truck and I'm looking to make a few upgrades. I'm about to order a 2.5" rough country leveling kit and a set of cooper discoverer St maxx tires. My truck has 265/70-17 at the moment. I'm pretty sure once the leveling kit is installed I'll want larger tires. I know this is possible with the leveling kit, but I'm not sure what sizes will work. I'm interested in 285/70-17. Anyone know if this will work with the clearance I'll have? I don't want it to rub, but at the same time I don't want the tires to look small on the truck. Thanks for any advice. This is all very new to me and I'd hate to make a $1k mistake.
