  1. Yes Sir Headlight adjustment is needed. Second setting is a good compromise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Highest setting; I need the highest setting because I like to run The biggest tires I can fit. Another factor is what do you prefer? I love the appearance of a level truck myself. The highest setting I am still 3/4” lower in the front. But that is a very small amount and it appears level to the naked eye. With factory tires and suspension it was 2.75 inches lower in the front. I bought the suspension as a set of 4, the rear are just stock replacements. now that you mention it I do believe the boot is on the lower portion they are very nice shocks and they are zinc coated. What is awesome about these shocks is that you can achieve a leveled front end without the use of spacers so you sacrifice no ride quality and in fact you will have much better ride than factory. My father did a review of the truck before and after on YouTube his name is PM TIPS. From now on when I buy a Chevy Silverado the absolute first modification is to install Bilstein 5100. I actually had a busted rancho shock with only 26,000 miles and the dealership told me they would not replace it because they could not prove it was leaking and when we pulled the Rancho off it had zero return force and you could depress it by hand. I find it hard to believe they could not prove it had no charge but lucky for them I did not get too unhappy about it because I already knew I wanted to upgrade but I was going to try to wait until later; However, because of how the dealership treated me it accelerated my upgrade. It was making a horrible noise but Certified mechanic dropped the ball on this one. Oh well, it’s just money. I guarantee you nine out of 10 people would’ve been very pissed off. But I knew the stock suspension was junk even when it’s brand new. Suspension is one of the worst cost reduction measures; what’s even worse is.. they claim that’s an off-road suspension. As the years pass by cost reduction measures get worse and the prices only get higher. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. There ain’t too many things better in life than a Chevy Silverado with Bilstein 5100’s and Good mud tires. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My pop was intermittent also and it ended up being the rancho front left strut was bad. It blew its seal and thus developed internal problems. Would have been covered under warranty but i wanted Bilsteins anyway. Best $450 i could have spent on my Truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I heard that! Love not getting the ramps out. This truck seemed to gain more clearance than any of my previous 3 trucks with this upgrade. The tires are not rubbing the fender well lining although there is some Close proximity in a couple areas if you are turned fairly sharp. I do have rubbing on the control arm. But the interference is very light and it only occurs in full lock left or right. I never accelerate if i am in full lock steering for once in a blue moon; so any future interference will be at throttle speed. Also, if these tires did not have that aggressive mud grip design on the side wall it would not do it at all. What is your feeling on tire pressure? If you have 65psi max, but hardly ever carry heavy weight in the truck or tow; shouldn’t I run a lesser pressure for a better ride? The max pressure is for if you are carrying maximum load which would be like 2900 pounds per tire. I would think if I hardly ever haul anything and just commute in my truck that I could get away with a much lesser pressure in fact right now I’m at 50psi. But I don’t know what the professional answer is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thunderer 33x12.50 R18 M/T trac grip something like that I’m driving it home now they have too much air pressure in them I’m reading 69 on the right front Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. LMAO! I have seen some very good looking 2014 and 2015 front ends. They were a giant improvement on the 2012 front end. I love square body Chevy trucks from early and mid 80’s! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. My 2012 It’s not mine anymore; probably should have kept it. But I am a sucker for the front end on my 2017. Best looking front end ever! I never did particularly like the front end on the 2012 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 7 years is how long I’ve been doing my current commute as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Oh absolutely; i bet i will like the increased sidewall on the 18” wheels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My 2012 had 20” wheels; i had to go with a 33x12.50 just to get a fair amount of sidewall; it was a good truck and i spent $$ upgrading it and then i let the lady at the dealership talk me into a 2017. Oh Well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m excited about tires now!!! I want 33” tall 11.5”wide r18 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ attracts me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
