  1. Like Coveted said, you really aren’t in need of UCA’s with this level. Your angles are totally fine, I’d imagine the boot separation was caused during installation as getting those to come off the stock knuckle can be a nightmare lmao. With that being said, I’m all about spending a little extra to perfect the angles and ensure the system lasts for 100+ thousand miles without issues. It’s what I did on my leveled NNBS just for the peace of mind. I’d recommend looking at MOOG UCA’s. Affordable and good quality... had them on mine for around 80K with no issues.

    I’ve got no experience with Rancho kits but I have a 6” BDS coilover conversion kit and I could not be happier with the quality of this product. The engineering behind the knuckle, sway bar drop, etc is phenomenal. The angles are amazing and the truck rides better than stock (although the coil overs have most todo with this). You won’t be disappointed in a BDS suspension system, they are top of the line products. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. 6" vs. 8" BDS Lift Kit

    Yeah I did the coil overs and the leaf spring kit from the get-go. If you’re thinking about running 37’s I’d go with the 8 because I think they’d look a bit stuffed on the 6, you’d definitely lose the “stock” feel.. but to reference your comment on the regear, I would consider it almost mandatory with anything over a 35 if you want that transmission to last longer than 100,000 miles. I’m regearing mine on just the 6 because I want to put the drivability back in it and a little bit of pickup too... anyways, 37’s at 70+, you’d be sitting at a hard 2500 rpm and your acceleration would be shit. Someone correct me if I’m just ass wrong because I don’t claim to be an expert but based on my experience with moving to 35’s, that’s what I’d expect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 6" vs. 8" BDS Lift Kit

    Here’s my 2017 on a 6” BDS. Couldn’t imagine the stance looking as good on an 8”.. also running 35x12.50’s.

  7. Just put this exact lift on my 2017 gmc and it is truly complete. I love it and could not be happier with my truck! You definitely don’t need a longer drive shaft, the only thing I would recommend is rear wheel spacers because the lift pushes your front track out 1.5” on each side.. other than that, BDS gives you everything you need. Enjoy the lift!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What do you mean? If you buy aftermarket, my personal opinion is cast steel but most aftermarket’s already are. If you’re asking which lift to get, it just depends on which UCA’s you have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dude that truck would be a beast! Like you said though it’s badass as it, keep driving it till you figure out what you wanna do. I just put my lift on and the tunes coming very soon, I can’t stand the loss of power and mpg’s I’m suffering right now lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hell of a setup you’ve got, really like this one!! You got a tune on this guy? Can’t believe you’re still averaging 20 with those 275s. (Edit: 295s**) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Threw a 2” RC level on dads truck for Christmas. Still need to get another 1/2 inch inch on the front to get that true level, guess I know what I’ll get for his birthday [emoji2957] Side by side with my 6” BDS. Love em both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Lift kit help

    BDS and Zone are owned by the same company. It’s pretty commonly known BDS is their signature brand and hence the better warranty, higher price. From my research, the engineering at BDS is a few steps ahead of Zone. They have done a lot of work in the performance trucks world and have done a couple joint ventures with Fox which is why they offer the 2.5 coil overs and shocks. I’m a big fan of BDS, they make great 4.5, 6, and 7 kits and imo the 6” with 35’s look cannot be beat. Both are great lifts however I think you get a little more if you pay a little more.
