  1. Thank you so much, I have been trying to figure this out without any experience. Thanks again!
  2. Okay, so I measured again, this time on level pavement from the ground with 3/4 tank of gas Difference between fronts - 5/16" DF lower Difference between Rear - 9/16" DR lower Diff F/R Driver side - 2 3/4" Diff F/R Pass Side - 3"
  3. Hi guys, I'm a suspension newb but I have been doing my homework. Brand new 2018 2500HD 4x4 I am considering a Zone 3" lift or just doing a level (maybe with just keys, might add UCAs) Lemme know what you suggest. I currently have LT265/70R17 on stock 17" x 7 1/2" with 44 offset. looking to go to 34" on 18" x 9" with about a 24 offset I measured my clearances from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fenders. Here's what I got: Drvr Frnt - 24 5/8" Pass Frnt - 25 3/8" Difference between fronts - 3/4" Drvr Rear - 27 3/4" Pass Rear - 27 3/8" Difference between Rear - 3/8" Diff F/R Driver side - 3 1/8" Diff F/R Pass Side - 2" I know (i think) I can equal out the front by adjusting the driver torsion key to raise the driver side up 3/4" What do I do about the 3/8" difference in the rear dimensions? or am I being too picky? I am a little anal when it comes to my new Chevy. Please advise on all or any of the above. Thanks in advance Steve
  4. Heard that, I am getting close to the same thing. Gets harder and harder to get in the bed these days.
  5. Congrats on the new truck! It looks just like mine - mine's a 4x4. Looks stock to me - no lift on it now, at least that's my humble opinion from the picture. Here's what I've learned so far, the 17" wheels we have on our trucks are weenie's. I wish I could get bigger but that will have to wait. I am going to get a Zone 3" adventure series lift with upper control arms and fox shocks (i've been told you can upgrade from the Zone shocks) This lift is really an upgraded level kit. I am going with it just to get a little lift and a beefier stance. Not sure yet but I might need spacers on the rear as I am learning that with the new UCAs it might push the fronts out a little, which is ok with me but I don't want them sticking out too far as it will thrown dirt all over my truck like my dodge did. Good Luck and enjoy!
  6. Thank you all for the help! I am just wanting to level my truck in order to get larger wheels and tires. My truck came with LT265/70R17 I want to go with 295/70R17 Can I put them on my stock wheels without rubbing? If I turn the keys up 2" do I need to add UCAs to keep my CV angles in check and my ball joints good? All help is greatly appreciated! Thanks
  7. Ok, so I got my new truck today! Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4. I am looking at the Zone 3" lift to level the truck for a better look. Question is " do I have "Top mounted rear overload Springs? See pic - I am new to suspension work so I want to be sure. I am thinking the answer is no, but I do have that one leaf on the bottom not shackled with the other ones. Am I right or not?
  8. Thanks! Nice Looking Truck! I pick mine up tomorrow.
  9. Thanks WaaaZooo Did you use the rear blocks and raise the rear as well or did you just level the truck? Any Pics of your truck?
  10. It's a company vehicle and I am glad it is new! Never get a 7 year loan! Three is the only way to go. IMHO
  11. I realized that I posted this in the wrong forum...but I wonder if the new 3.5: kits are any better? I am leaning towards the zone from what I am hearing . Thanks for the help! no better help than someone who has one installed - did you crank the torsion keys past spec?
  12. Hey Guys, I am a total Newb but am picking up my new Chevy 2500HD 4x4 tomorrow or Tuesday depending on upfitters progress. I have been looking for a solution to list my truck about 3-4" (and level) Problem is right now I need to keep my stock wheels and tires LT265/70R17 Anyone know of a good solution that won't destroy the ball joints or other suspension components? I am looking at the Rough Country 3.5IN GM BOLT-ON SUSPENSION LIFT KIT (11-18 2500/3500HD) and the Zone 2011-18 Chevy/GMC 2500HD/3500HD, 3" Adventure Series UCA Lift System, Zone Offroad C37N/C38N I am hearing that the zone is the preferred brand of the two due to the fact that they are the sister company of BDS but I have also heard good things about the Rough Country. Zone is $858 and RC is $599 that's $260 left to build more truck Any help for this newb would be appreciated. Thanks Running Fast
