Yondu replied to dab86's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraLooks really good. Makes me wish I went 275/70r18 overy 275/65 Duratracs but I wanted to avoid LT tires. Keep up the good work!
Sounds like you're using spacers and 5100's at stock height? By track width, does he mean lower offset wheels would ride better, due to changing the leverage on the suspension? Good information to know TX. Seems like there would be a market for a plush riding small lift. Makes me wonder, I know the 19 Silverado is all new so I assume the struts are not compatible...? GM is offering a 2" lift strut on those.
I'm torn between that setting and one down. My truck doesn't seem to have as much rake as some do, so I'll probably go one down. What's your wheel and tire setup? Another thing I feel people forget is where you live. Roads are much much worse up here in MN and other northern states. The winter really messed them up.
I drive a 3/4 ton van with LT tires everyday and find the ride of that to be better. I have pretty realistic expectations I think. Granted the van has a lot of weight in it which certainly smooths it out, I do not expect or want the truck to ride like a Cadillac. My biggest complaint about the Ranchos is the bump shudder and the highway bobbing (I have under 500 miles). As of yet, I don't know what it rides like with Bilsteins. I'll get them next week but it might be another week or two until I put them on.
That's annoying. I called them a few hours after I ordered and they said they couldn't find my order yet but they'll call me in the morning. He agreed that the 5100's are height adjustable so it should be correct. Sounds like if it ends up costing around $375, I should still order them.
My point is there is a wide spectrum in results. I assume something may be going wrong on the install or some defective part. I decided to order them from 4wp. $297 shipped for all 4. I go back and forth on which setting I'm going to do, either the 2nd or 3rd (.75 or 1.25 claimed lift). Since I don't really want to mess with rear blocks and my truck has under 2.5" rake, I'll probably go with the 2nd setting and maintain 1.5" rake. I'll be sure to post pics and a review!
You guys have a lot more factory rake than my crew. I have between 2.25 and 2.5" rake on a level surface. Personally I'm going to order Bilstein 5100s today. Probably do the 2nd to top setting.
