  1. I think I added the shocks to my cart again after I ordered them from 4WP . Then they sent me an e-mail left something behind save 5% good for a couple days. Called them asked if i could apply to my order while I waited for my shocks. They did. Worth a shot. Good luck with your set up. Post some pic.
  2. Ok I like them so far. Had them installed today at a shop I have use for some time. They do alignment also. A month I installed KYB's on my wife's 2014 impala as I was coming down with Covid. Did the rear. Had front strut off but head was pounding. Called it quits told her take it there. For the price with alignment I was like. Lets do this. I set them at 2 inch's when I installed the spring's . Anyway Just drove home about 8 miles . Definitely stiffer then the RC's . But not jarring by any means. I like it. It raised it to 39.5 inch's in the front. Where I was at when first installed the RC. I was down to 38.5 driver side 38 passenger with the RC. Can definitely see the difference in the stance. Had 8000 mile on the RC shocks. I'm hope they maintain the height with the springs . Some loss but not 1.25. Again 1.25 block in back from my 2009 Silverado. 1/2 to 3/4 rake. Also made 1/2 sway bar plates to lower them for the slight lift. 2020 RST 5.3 .
  3. Right after i wrote that I literally I got an e-mail your order shipped. Got them on Saturday. The springs are thicker the the factory. I put a caliper on them. Plus tightly wound compared to factory or the Rough Country which the springs were even thinner in dia then the factory springs. The Rough Country have settled over a inch. My Front measures at 38.5 now. I have posted pic when I first got them installed was at 40 inch's. Factory height was 38 inch's. Have 1.25 blocks in back. Measures at 40.25. I swapped over the top hats to the Beilsteins with a spring compressor from harbor freight. They were pretty bent. Will try to get them installed this week. I hope they ride nice and will hold there height over time. 2020 RST 5.3 4WD
  4. 6112 seem to be back ordered pretty deep. Ordered March 25 from 4 wheel parts. Saved 5 percent on the order anyway. Summit racing says they won't come in till the end of July. Want to replace my Rough Country 2 inch leveling struts. Love the ride of them. But they seem to settled a good 1/2 or more lower from the 2 inch. Well set the 6112 at 2 inch. Hope the springs keeps the height.
  5. 2020 RST 5.3 Borla touring factory brazel . Love the sound. Not to loud. Wish I went with the dual tips. But no regrets at all. RotoFab air cleaner also.
  6. Yes those are the ones. You will love the ride quality Better then stock plus the lift. Get alignment done after. This was the day I installed. Did further test. It did hit when I jacked up the truck let tire hang.
  7. Yes don’t install them. The bolts come to close to the axle boots touching at full droop and turning . I removed them like two weeks after I installed them. Went with Rough County fully assembled 2 inch struts. I posted somewhere about it. Like 320 for the pair. Ride is better then stock. They have settled to about 1 5/8 of lift. Perfect with or without the 1 inch rear block. Don’t use the lower space.
  8. Yes don't install them the bolts come to close to the axle boots. Hit at full droop and turning. I removed them two weeks after and use Rough Country 2 inch leveling strut. Ride is way better the stock. You will love them. Have Beilstein in the rear. Will eventually put them in front. They weren't out yet when I did it. Settled at about 1 5/8 of lift. Perfect. Don't install them . Don't take the chance. P.S Moto Fab Fine for 2 wheel drive
  9. Come to think of it I did use 7075 Alum. So I did use aircraft grade Alum. HA HA. I'm with you Chris . Good enough for planes. I was out of titanium . So I guess all the raiser they sell on e-bay made from some polysomthing to stamped steel with grade 8 bolts are junk also. Agree about the leverage thing. A lever amplifies an input force to provide a greater output force, which is said to provide leverage. The ratio of the output force to the input force is the mechanical advantage of the lever. At least I wasn't told how I should spend my money or save it. Grade/Class Strength Metric Class 10.9 Similar to Grade 8. Metric Class 12.9 The highest metric class for strength, it exceeds Grade 8.
  10. Made my own seat raisers for the passenger seat for my 2020 RST. Used 1.25 thick alum blocks. Spray painted black. Bought m10 * 65mm long . Grade 12.9 socket cap bolts at local nut and bolts store. Work in machine shop so materials were free. Seat was so low. Not that I sit there much. Saved a bunch of money. Like switching to Geico. PS sorry about all the dog hair.
  11. Went into setting and found update. Install took about 14 mins.
  12. Took my motofab 1.5 lowere spacer out right away after seeing how close it was. Hit on full droop. Try Rough Country leveling strut. Worth to extra cash rides better the stock. My seem to settle at 1.5 . Also have a 1.25 block in rear.
  13. I would definitely go with a leveling strut verses a spacer. The numbers your looking for are on the manufactures web sight. Under the installation instruction.
  14. Have the borla Touring . When I first installed it . Going on the highway up slight long inclines for a good distance you will here a hum that sounds like a drone. Which I would say it is. I was like what have I done to my new truck. But I got used to it really fast. It just fads away over time. Love the sound when I get on it. You will get used to it.
  15. Anything over a 2 inch block in the rear I would use a shock extender. Even with your 1.5 block you should be fine with the extenders. Shock still has plenty of travel in its range. Max tow trucks have heavy duty springs in the rear . And with an air bag your kind of limiting you rear shock travel when going offroad. 5100 Bilstens might help but I would think it would be even firmer ride. Only 1.5 lift from the 5100 is because you have the 6.2 which is heaver then the 5.3. Gravity. Can't have it all. But you have a 6.2 with 3.42 gears. That something to smile about.
