therealmojoe replied to rikhek's topic in 2019 Silverado & Sierra ModsGreat topic. id like to see who tries this out seeing as they could potentially run into driveline issues with their cv shafts.
Aftermarket suspension manufacturers will not approve installing leveling kits on the prelifted models because of the ball joint and cv issues. Can you install the leveling kits on the trail-boss and AT4 package trucks? Sure. Will you have issues in the future? Probably. 4x4 shops are installing these leveling kits on these trucks but the manufacturers specifically state we do not approve this for we will not be held liable for any cv issues or ball joint issues. As far as the tires go, sure you can fit a 35" tire on the trail-boss and at4 trucks, but you will not clear 100% while articulation. If you have a shop tell you that the at4 or trail-boss models can clear 35's on stock wheels with no lift, they are lying to you or they are simply not educated enough. These trucks will absolutely rub. They may not at ride height simply turning, but if you're driving in our out of a driveway or dip while turning you will experience tire rub.
Procomp Does plan on making a 4" kit in the future but no ETA at this time. Most of the time i only see guys going with the 4" to fit their vehicle in their garage. Which most guys realize after installing a 4" kit they still cant fit their truck in the garage because they don't think to add the height of bigger tires as well. 4" kits are not nearly as popular as 6" lift kits. 4" chevy kits were never as popular as chevy and dodge because you could only fit a 33" tall tire on a 4" kit which seemed worthless when a leveling kit fits the same size tire and a 6" was needed to fit 35's. Since ford and dodge can fit 35's with leveling kits, the 4" kits were more popular with those models. Maybe now that chevy can fit a 35" tall tire with the leveling kit and trail boss package the 4" lift may be more sought after.
That is a very good question. While many will still debate and this will never end i can provide information i see personally from myself and customer of Procomp that i speak to every day. To make this short and sweet i will be right out in the open with this... Twin tube shocks are typically gas charged which will generally give you a smooth easy ride. Monotube shocks are typically Nitrogen charged which will give you a stiffer ride. The fox shocks can be either dependent on how they are valved and how much nitrogen is in the shock. All shocks can act the same with similar valving. The valving is what you notice. If you drive like an old man i would go with the twin tube shocks. If you drive like a pissed off teenager i suggest the monotubes.
The performance shocks are a twin tube design while the stealth shocks are a monotube design. Fabtech performance shocks are comparable to Procomp ES9000's and Bilstein's 4600's. (twin tube) Fabtech stealth shocks are comparable to Procomp pro runners shocks and Bilstein's 5100's. (mono tube)
It's funny you say "coming October 26th"..... Ill tell you what, if you have any questions on eta dates call me on my office phone or call the number on the ProComp website and ask for me. I can explain why an ETA date may or may not be accurate. Joe Lind 310-900-5516
Fabtech posted photos and information on social media regarding their 6" kit for the 2019+ half ton. That state "NOW AVAILABLE" What are your guys' opinion on releasing marketing material stating "now available" when the kit is in fact, not available yet?
Unfortunately we do not release any photos until marketing releases theirs. We do not want to release photos or videos of our vehicle too early. We have done this in the past and this inundates our customer service and retail channels with calls and requests which we try to avoid early on. We do have photos of our vehicle with our leveling kit but we have already seen plenty of vehicles with leveling kits and coilovers. If any of you are local to Southern California you may have attended the Off-road expo in Pomona California. There were few vendors with coilovers and leveling kits installed on their 2019 gm trucks.
Yes i can assure you we will have our vehicle at our booth. I'm sure our competitors will have their trucks on show as well. I cant speak for any of our competitors but we will have "coming soon" videos and posters soon. Our truck has already been driving on the streets of San Diego where our R&D facility is.
Unfortunately I cannot say at this time. Our late October release will be a full 6" kit. With the 2019 new body ram and Chevy truck release it was a lot of work to get both kits out as soon as possible. It's hard to developed kits for two completely new platforms in a short period. Dodge was similar to the previous years but did require a makeover. The Chevy kit is 100% completely different. Had to start from scratch.
I work at procomp. We have a scheduled release date. Most orders are already allocated. Since Procomp doesn't not sell direct to the he public like some of our competitors, the instock date differs depending on the supplier.
