  1. Maybe lift is the way to go. I will have a lot at what there is out there. I don’t think I want to go 6” maybe if there is a decent 3”-4” lift.
  2. Bhurt, That's what i am afraid of happening on mine. At any rate the ride is terrible and needs to be corrected. I like her being leveled and will likely get some 33" tires, but I first need to address the control arm issue. Will your dealer install after market UCA or just put the same stock ones back? I noticed that the ball joint on mine is at a very steep angle and with the after market UCA they have changed the geometry of the Ball joint so it rides straight up and down when the front is lifted. My problem is trying to decide weather to go with a full lift or one of those leveling kits. For the price of one of those leveling kits you can get a full lift. I noticed that some of the leveling kits sell them with shocks but the you still need to use shock extensions. If you are lifting the truck 2"-3" why are the shock extensions only 1". shouldn't they be 2"-3" or just sell longer shocks.
  3. Hi, I’m new to the forum, I just got into a new to me 17 Denali 2500hd, looks very similar to yours Riggin’. They could be sisters. I love the look with those wheels. It would appear that they leveled my truck by just cranking the keys up. The front suspension look very similar to the original pics you posted Riggin’. I should have read up a lot more about these trucks and their mods first. Did you by a complete Kit? If so what is it? Or just piece at a time? I have been looking at 3 different kits for leveling https://kryptoniteproducts.com/products/kryptonite-stage-3-leveling-kit-with-bilstein-shocks-2011-2017 The above comes with everything except diff spacers. Which I have found for as a separate kit from a few places. https://cognitomotorsports.com/i-30498951-cognito-standard-leveling-package-for-2011-2019-gm-2500hd-3500hd-2wd-4wd-trucks.html#!make%3DGM||year%3D2017||model%3D2500||submodel%3DTRUCK This one starts to get pretty costly with all the add ons. https://suspensionmaxx.com/product/SMX-GM-HD-STAGE2F This one seems to have everything complete. I don’t know if I really need the shocks or not. They add quite a bit of cost to the whole thing.
  4. I have been very happy with the Toyo AT2, great traction, ice, snow and mud. Smooth and quiet running, good warranty, although never had to use it. In fact I have never had to do anything with them other then rotate.
  5. Hi everyone! I bought just a 17 Denali from a dealer who leveled her. I have been doing some research on leveling the front and raising the entire truck. I would like to get some bigger tires, not sure what the dealer did exactly,to level the front. Looks like they cranked her up at the torsion bars. The UCAs are stock and I don’t particularly like how the ball joint is at an angle. So that is the first thing that needs to be addressed. I would like to install a diff drop kit to straighten the cv shafts. I found this kit attached below. This may be just what the Dr ordered seems to cover everything, as far as leveling. https://suspensionmaxx.com/product/SMX-GM-HD-STAGE2 What do you guys think of this kit? Anyone use this kit?
