  1. Thanks for the tip! Not a bad idea! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Dude that’s crazy. I have the exact same setup on mine. Wheel spacers and all. Even has the 4.7l, awful gas mileage, under powered pooch motor in it haha super chip helped out quite a bit but man oh man the GMC Sierra was a heck of a change, your absolutely right! Haha my brother has a 14 Sierra and his are the red and white ranchos. It’s possible the previous owner put the exact same ones back on but I doubt it. These look fairly worn. I’ll probably order some rancho 9000s or something of some sort of upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. EXACTLY!! So you know exactly what I’m talking about. I have an 05 ram also and did the exact same thing to it. Rides like shit but looks pretty bada$$ with 35’s on stock suspension. No wheel gap at all! Unlike these dang gmc/chevys with square wheel wells haha. I still love the gmc but I couldn’t part with the old dodge when I got the new one. The dodge only has 90,000 on it. Might as well hang on to it. As far as the gmc, I think you make a good point bud, there’s 86,xxx miles on it. Could be worn out leaf springs and front struts need replacing. I’m still leaving toward a quality sort of adjustable helper spring (helwig maybe?) for the back and maybe start with new shocks up front. How many miles are guys typically getting out of them? The truck is a 15 but high miles obviously. Looking at them I’m assuming they are the stock rancho shocks but who knows. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. With the rear blocks removed it sat maybe a half inch lower in the rear. As far as I can tell (and I’m not stupid) everything is stock up front except the upper control arms. Which are from a rough country lift. Shackles in the rear are stock also. It just seems like the front of the truck wants to shoot up and it also feels real springy up front. When I hit a bump or a dip in the road it’s real stiff feeling. Similar to (the only thing I can’t relate to) something like torsion bars on an independent front suspension truck, being tightened (torqued) too much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Wheel Spacers on stock rims

    I went 1.5” all the way around and you can kinda see the back wheels are out a bit farther. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    How much rub did you have with the 4.5” lift? I’m assuming you did some trimming? I really want 35’s but the local shop is telling me I need 7” of lift. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. That shouldn’t make a difference tho right? Since the RC lift comes with a 2” block and your supposed to remove the stock one anyway. I have 3” total block in the back and it’s still sagging a bit. Every other picture of a truck with the RC level/lift looks perfectly level. While mine still has that reverse rake Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I went with the 2.5" level/lift kit from rough country, 2.5" in the front, and 2" blocks in the back, but i ended up putting the 3" blocks ( theoretically its only supposed to bring the back up another inch, but since i didn't have the factory blocks, it all worked out) which are supposed to replace the facoty 1" blocks. Just sucks that it had so much reverse rake that it looked goofy. I thought for sure the 3: blcoks would make it perfect
  13. Wheel Spacers on stock rims

    I’ll get picks up when it’s light outside. I have 20” stock snowflake wheels with 33” tires and 1.5” wheel spacers!! It really set the truck off, made it looks much more aggressive. Plus the snowflakes have little pocket where it meets the spacer, so I didn’t have to cut the factory studs. I would recommend 1” spacers for the rear and 1.5” for the front. They don’t line up exactly. You will be the only one to notice so I wouldn’t worry to much
  14. What did you put in place of it? Just a straight pipe or something else??? Any chance you have a video?
  15. Forgive me if this is long but i want to be as detailed as possible. I bought my 2015 gmc sierra all terrain used. I noticed when i bought it, the rear blocks were removed. I assumed the person before me wanted to level it so i didnt think anything about it because i planned on getting the rough country level/lift kit for it. So after installing the RC level/lift i noticed i now had reverse rake, and quite a bit (ill post a pic). The lower control arms on my truck are aluminum and i noticed the uppers are steel. Upon further research, it turns out that the upper control arms are actually rough country UC. So Anyway, to fix the reverse rake i put 3” blocks in the back, and that helped quite a bit but there is still a bit of reverse rake, and if i so much as put a sand bag in the back, it drops quite a bit. Now i understand on a leveled truck your going to have reverse rake when hauling, but i feel like its squatting too much. So one of my questions is, are the rough country control arms pushing the front of the truck up higher?? Ive never heard of someone having to put 3” blocks with the RC kit to level it out. Its quite obvious there was a lift on the truck before i bought it (which explains the blocks missing and the upper control arms). My thoughts on an easy fix would be a helper spring. I was thinking hellwig springs because there is a bit of adjustment on those (if i understand them correctly) im not too terribly concerned about ride quality, but maybe some of you folks would have some tips, tricks, advice etc... to help me out here. Amything would be appreciated. Thanks!!! P.S. the second pic is without the 3” blocks.
