I went 2.25" and I am basically level. Only an issue when i have a heavy load in the bed. I like the completely level look, but might consider adding blocks in the rear to go up an inch. So you might stay with the 1.5" to 2.0' for this reason. My 2015 crew cab is a non-Z71 4x4, but here is a picture.... 2015Silverado_Sep2017-18 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr
Zane and Josh (and anyone else working on the upgrade) ...... THANKS for the efforts. I have been involved with forums for close to 20 years now and I know first hand what a nightmare these types of upgrades can be. Your patience dealing with these inquiries is impressive! So again, THANKS for this awesome forum and all the headaches you endure to maintain it! To all members that are frustrated by this change .... try to have patience as well. Change is good! In a short time all will be back to "normal"!
If your headlights were properly aimed before leveling your truck then you are definitely aiming too high with the level (per factory specs). The "courteous" thing to do is to check them and adjust as necessary. When I did my level (2" RC) on my previous 2007 Silverado, I noticed a couple of times when I was sitting behind a car at a red light they were shielding their eyes from the mirror reflection. And I wasn't "getting flashed" either! After a little research and checking my settings I was about 5" to 6" too high (@ 25'). I followed the same basic procedure outlined in the above video. After the adjustment I still had good forward visibility, and I'm pretty sure the vehicles around me appreciated it. I recently leveled my 2015 (2.25" ProComp). I went through the same procedure and found that I was again about 6" too high. All good now. Here is a good courtesy quote I found.... "Courtesy is simply doing unto others what you would like them to do unto you" ... unknown author
I recently blacked out the 4X4 decals and my bowties, cleaned her up, and decided to take a few new pictures. Loving this truck!! 2015Silverado_Sep2017-09 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr 2015Silverado_Sep2017-03 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr 2015Silverado_Sep2017-21 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr 2015Silverado_Sep2017-07 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr
I used the flat black vinyl wrap on the front and rear bowties just to see how it would turn out. I figured as cheap as the vinyl was that it wouldn't break the bank if I didn't like it. To my surprise it was rather easy to apply and it appears to be staying put for now (4 weeks). Here are a couple of pics.... 2015Silverado_Sep2017-09 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr 2015Silverado_Sep2017-03 by Mark Anderson, on Flickr
