It looks great! And if I didn’t worry so much I would take the shackles off your hand. But since I do, when I do it to mine I will probably just buy all new parts. I figure I will keep the overload springs in, don’t need them often but when I do....
Did it make any change in the ride quality? If so better or worse? How often do you hit the Sumo Springs or bump stops? What kit did you use? Part numbers? Did it have to be realigned? Did you do the install yourself? Do you have any pics? Any extra help/answers would be greatly appreciated.

I just put some 17”x9” with +18 offset wheels on my ‘16 Silverado 2500HD 2wd. I have not don’t any suspension work and if I do it will be to lower the rear 2” with a shackle kit. My question is what is the widest size all terrain tire I can run without any trimming, scrubbing, or rubbing? I don’t want to go ungodly tall maybe a little bit taller tire than factory. My main goal is wider to get a little more grip, and a little less sinking into the ground lol. I know this has been asked before and opinions vary but I’m hoping to get a little more straight answer than I’m finding.
Looks good man. Would you happen to have a picture of it without the trailer? Did the ride quality get better/worse/no change? Did you have to drop your trailer hitch and bend/cut the bed seam or loosen the bed and lift it a little?
Has any one on here done a 2in rear drop shackle kit to their ‘16+ Silverado 2500 2wd? If so how bad was the install process and are you glad you did it versus lifting the front end? Looking for a more level look but don’t know that I necessarily want to make the wheel well space in the front bigger. I feel like I’d rather lower the back. I feel these trucks are tall enough and I don’t have a 4wd so I don’t want to jack it up higher for no real reason.
I recently bought a 2016 Silverado 2500HD 2wd truck and I’m interested in dressing it up a little. Not a fan of the factory 17” steel wheels. I don’t think the size bothers me, they’re just ugly. I don’t have any plans to level it out, but I would like to fill the wheel well up better. I’m curious what would be the tallest and widest tire I could run on it with a 17”x8” wheel with a 00mm offset without experiencing rubbing or issues. The tires I plan on running will be the Falken Wildpeak AT3W. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
