  1. The link below is the ones I put on my truck but keep in mind that mine is a 1500 LT 2WD. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y9CQ1OE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I never owned a truck so it is hard for me to describe the ride. When I hit one bump, it felt like I was hitting a few bumps. I am assuming that the rear wheels were bouncing after hitting a bump. The main road near my home is an old country road that has been patched and patched and patched. It was a miserable ride with the original shocks. I am feeling the same thing from the front.
  2. I recently purchased a 2020 Silverado 1500 LT and a lifetime of driving cars. I found the ride too uncomfortable and after some reading here, replaced the rear shocks with Bilstein 4600 series. Made a substantial difference in the ride quality on rough roads. Thinking about replacing the front struts and looking at videos pf 2013 to 2018, it is fairly simple. Remove top 3 strut bolts and bottom two and the assembly comes right out. I can not find a video on 2019-2020 but videos of front leveling kits being installed show the control arms being disassembled and the ball joints removed. So it seems that there is a change for 19-20 models but need to confirm.
  3. I just purchased a 2020 Silverado LT with the Max Trailering package. Let me start by saying I never owned a truck. I am 55 and have only owned 4 door sedans. My son does have a Sierra High Country 9Z71 I think) and it does not seem to ride as rough as my truck. My question is about the max trailering package. I believe the rear springs on this package are stiffer than the "normal" LT edition with out that package. Max Trailering Package12 features a 9.76-inch rear axle, 3.42 axle ratio, enhanced-cooling radiator, revised shock tuning for increased control, heavier-duty rear leaf springs, a 220-amp alternator and trailer brake controller Maybes this why some people claim their Silverado rides good and some say it is too tight. To be honest, I hate driving this truck but again, this is my first truck and there are some bad roads near my home. I am not sure if it would be worth the effort to replace the springs and shocks? I was hoping somebody has driven both versions.
