  1. Need to be 20's. Slightly better clearance on the cast UCAs too, vs stamped. Don't think those tires would clear stamped UCAs.
  2. Bilstein shocks thread

    They can accommodate 0-2" of lift if I remember correctly. They'll be fine at stock height, that's what I used. Rear shocks don't give you any lift, there would be blocks or extra leafs for that. The shock length just needs to be able to accommodate it (which the normal 5100s can do at stock height).
  3. Bilstein shocks thread

    Rear shocks are not adjustable.
  4. Bilstein shocks thread

    Could you take a picture of the contact you have? I've also got Bilstein 5100 at stock height with zone 4.5. I don't think I've got any contact like you're describing.
  5. Bilstein shocks thread

    I paid less than $300 for install and alignment of fronts. Did rear myself in 45 minutes.
  6. Bilstein shocks thread

    What I've done in the past is use the bds/zone/cst websites to find authorized installers in the area and go from there. If they're familiar enough to be doing full lifts, they certainly qualified to do some shocks.
  7. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    My bilstein 5100s at max height rubbed uca as well. The stock offset doesn't seem to like leveled trucks. You've actually gone with wider tires than I had too, although with stock 20's I only had tire rub. Not sure what impact the readylift uca has on your situation.
  8. Lift kit help

    Also depends on what tires you want to run. 6.5" looks kinda funny to me with anything less than 34s. I wouldn't clear my garage with a 6.5 and (if I had it) 35s. I clear fine with my 4.5 / 33s (my antenna hits, but meh).
  9. I think he means cutting /trimming for tire clearance, not the lift, in this case.
  10. Just looked up the cst installation instructions. Requires trimming of the lower control arm pocket, and all of the UCA mounting points. Instructions also include removal of a bracket from the front crossmember, as well as drilling several holes in it. This all looks very similar to many other types of lifts I looked at when I was making my decision. Not trying to instigate anything, but I think saying that cst is easily reversible is not quite true. While there is no differential modification, you are certainly modifying enough that simply taking off the lift would be no small task. OP: there are a great many people running all of these lifts with great success. CST, BDS and Zone all make a great product, but each has pros and cons.
  11. I'm also running zone 4.5, bilstein up front and Fox 2.0 in the rear. Exact same setup as jimmyboy8301. I'm running stock wheels though. Well, my bilstein are at stock height in front, so no extra lift there.
  12. Level and wheels

    275/55/20 is stock size for 20's. Don't need a level for those. There are also numerous reports of people running 275/60/20 at stock height with no rubbing. Depends on offset of wheels. If you level, stock wheels and tires may rub. Mine did at 275/60/20 on stock 20's with bilstein 5100 at top height.
  13. I replaced the stock muffler with a magnaflow 18 and removed the resonator. I'm pretty happy with it. Originally just did the muffler, which was a nice tone, but still too quiet for my taste (hence removing the resonator). Basically stock volume with just the muffler swap.
  14. I think I've got the SR2, single side release. No complaints
