Hey there everyone, I've been doing my research and read about every thread I can regarding the halo-lifts full kit (if this would be better posted in the level section please let me know). I'm looking to do a full coilovers, rears and blocks kit to replace the stock shocks and the over-strut block and 3" rear blocks that a previous owner did to my truck. Currently rides quite rough and skips a bit over some highway bumps (Boston roads are trash) so it seems that the halo-lifts Boss kit would give me the best ride quality and although I would start at about 2" of lift I would consider 3" with new UCAs in the future. I was hoping that any of you who have done the boss kit could weigh in, or if you have any better options I'm open to suggestions! Currently running 285/70 17s on stock wheels but with 10mm spacers due to tire rub on UCAs (I think I have about 3" of lift in the front from the blocks making the angles up front less than ideal). Thanks!
Stock irridium metallic dl8 mirrors from a 2015 Sierra sle. I've attempted to attach pictures, can email them on request. $220+shipping obo Gray A-pillar cover, $30 + shipping obo No picture but can get one if requested. Any questions feel free to ask!
@neekhalas I had the same issue when I put 285/70/17s on the stock 17" wheels. I went with the at3ws which are a bit beefier as well. I spent a good amount of time doing circles in a parking lot and put some white tape on the ucas to find that there was minor rubbing at full right going forwards and rubbing on both ucas at full and almost full lock in reverse. You should also be able to hear squeaking from the rubber on metal. All that being said I just installed my 10mm BORA spacers on all 4 wheels yesterday and so far no issues at all and they were a perfect fit. No rubbing at all, although I didn't have rubbing with the 1/4" rough country spacer I was running before. So short version 1/4" spacers might fix your problem and would at least give you an estimate on back spacing if you want new wheels anyways!
Yea 1.75" is a bit of a bump although is it on the fender or just the liner? And I think an adapter is if you want to change number of lugs/pattern. Spacer is to move it out. BORA will tell you what size to get for your truck and the wheels. Mine should be here on the 22nd but so far the rough country 1/4" have been fine no vibration and no lug-tightness issues.
They do not have their own lugs, I asked the guys over at BORA and they said 10mm will be perfectly safe over stock studs. The only caveat is you have to special order them are $35ea + shipping and they say it takes 3-4 weeks to make them. I have heard of the pockets too, I thought I read that it was on the 20" wheels, but I didn't honestly look on my 17s. I would recommend calling them if you want to order because they'll get all the info for your center bore and hub diameter.
I had this same issue when going from 265/70/17 tires to 285/70/17 AT3Ws which run a little big. I put 1/4in spacers in the front to see if that fixed the problem and it did. I then contacted BORA for a set of wheels and hub centric ones that will be 10mm at their reccomendation. I'll make a post after because it seems there's not a ton of info on this problem.
Hi everyone, First off if there is a more appropriate place to post this please let me know and I'll be happy to repost! So to start off I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 with spacers on the top of the shock tower that create about 2-2.5" of lift and 3" rear blocks. I searched over multiple forums but couldn't find anyone with this exact issue. I went from stock 265/70r17 bridgestone duelers to 285/70/r17 Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws. Everywhere I searched it seems that plenty of people run the 285/70/17 KO2s with no issues with a level so I figured these would be the same, unfortunately at full lock the tire rubs on the UCAs. I was wondering what my options here are, the way I see it I have 3 options. 1. Downsize to 275/70/17 AT3Ws and get a little money back 2. Put some spacers on and hope that the UCA rub goes away and doesn't create a problem with the fender liner (I don't know much about these or how far I would have to go with them, I would prefer not to cut anything) 3. An offroad shop said that they could shave down the UCAs if they're the right material (I forget what kind I would need to have, I know that there are 3 different stock options for 2015). Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated! I have 30 days with the tire shop to decide what I would like to do, but I would prefer to get it done sooner so that I can stop worrying about it! Thanks everyone.
Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this but I'll give it a shot! I'm new to the truck world and just picked up a 2015 Sierra 1500 SLE that had some work done by a previous owner (who unfortunately I have no contact info for otherwise I would ask them). I believe that my truck has been leveled in the front and rear, although I cannot seem to figure out how. I'm assuming they added spacers to the leaf springs as those look new (the blocks measure about 3.5") but in the front I can't seem to find anything that looks aftermarket. I've attached some pictures if you guys don't mind letting me know if you can figure it out, I'd be happy to take more if necessary. Thanks for all the great info on this site and I'm looking forward to making a few mods! p.s. sorry for all the edits, I tried to re-size and add in images in a better size and messed it up! p.p.s. apologies for all the rotated images, it it flipped them automatically and I'm not sure how to adjust it, thanks!
