  1. Wax/Polish on plastic..

    Peanut butter doesn't work, nor will quick detailer. They both just mask it and make it look wet. Just get an old school square rubber pencil eraser and gently rub it off the plastic. Obviously don't use one with a pencil attached...
  2. 6.5" Lift

    If I'm not mistaken, he's on a zone 6.5, but swapped out spacers for full length coil overs in front.
  3. 6.5" Lift

    Depending on tire width, stock wheels will potentially give you issues regardless of knuckle vs bracket lift. Knuckle may have contact near the upper ball joint. Bracket may contact on the actual arms of the UCA, and /or the sway bar. Both types of lift recommend less backspacing than stock 20s. Of course, this all assumes you are referring to 20's, and will be influenced in what year (what uca) you have. I don't think stock 18's will clear regardless.
  4. WeatherTech vs. Husky Liners?

    Husky in the front, GM liner in the rear. Like them both. Not a fan of weather tech's mats.
  5. Bilstein shocks thread

    Stock. +27. Mine were at max height. Point isn't can 275's fit, point is that 305's very likely won't since 275's are very hit or miss. Also depends on which UCAs though.

    Ah, if only someone would make replica wheels with more accommodating offsets. Many like the stock wheels, especially the snowflakes. And your math works, but tire manufacturers aren't quite that precise. One brand 285 might be 283,whereas another might be 286. Then there's the difference in how aggressive the sidewall lugs are. Lots of variables.
  7. Bilstein shocks thread

    Sidewall made contact with front arm of the UCA.
  8. Bilstein shocks thread

    Can't cut out the suspension and sway bar. +27 with 305 wide, I'd bet you rub more on the inside than you do out.
  9. Bilstein shocks thread

    Stock 20s rub on the front arm of the UCA's. I'm lifted now, so don't have that problem anymore, but with +12 or +20 you'd be fine with 275/60/20.
  10. Bilstein shocks thread

    Maybe with spacers to offset, but not at +27. You'll probably just move the rub from UCA / sway bar to the fender though.
  11. Bilstein shocks thread

    275/60/20 rubs with bilstein max height. Pretty sure 305 wide is gonna rub, even at 3rd setting.
  12. BDS vs FabTech

    There are some that are running stock 20's successfully on BDS or Zone, but it's a mixed bag. Must just be the tolerance between wheel and UCA stamp are just right for some and problematic for others. Just don't want to mislead you.
  13. BDS vs FabTech

    Not required, it's only for looks.
  14. BDS vs FabTech

    If you go by manufacturer websites, both lifts will need new wheels if you want to go larger with your tires. Even the bracket type lifts, which some will state can use factory wheels, recommend aftermarket if you want to move to larger /wider tires (maintain stock uca position relative to the wheel, you'll hit the suspension and/or sway bar with wider tires). BDS indicates 5.75" max back spacing for 35x12.5. Fabtech indicates 5" max back spacing (with trimming) needed for 295/55/20 using 20x9 wheels.
  15. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    You have to do an alignment either way. Bilstein 5100 or 6112 at anything other than stock height, or spacer, or eibach or anything that changes ride height.
