Based on my previous experiences with them, I would say that there definitely has been improvements with these Bilsteins compared to past options. I lucked out and had a chance this time around to try both the Fox and 5160’s with the new truck and I went with the Bilsteins. Both ride great, so there really isn’t a bad choice. But to me, the 5160’s had the slight edge.
If you would have said to me a month ago, that it would be this hard to find a set of wheels, I would have called you a liar. LOL. I would never buy anything other than a GM truck, but I do wish they had the clearance like the Super Duty Ford has. I did talk to custom offsets today and the 285/65 will fit on “0” offset wheels. The 295/65 will fit on the positive offset rims, but at 0 they stated it will be “extremely close”. This was on a set of 20’s. Let me know what you find out during your research and I will do the same.
Cdh7917/bass mechanic/FirstAscent- thanks for the info your guys posted. With all the research you guys have done on this topic, do you think I would run into a fitment issue on a 0 or +1 offset with a 295/65/20 and a leveling kit with new UCA’s upfront? I am trying to avoid any trimming if at all possible. Thanks!
I leveled my 2020 3500 and it rides like a dream. Like gSwift said, the key to the ride quality is changing the UCA’s as well. I went with McGaughy’s, but also considered the Cognito kit. Both have UCA options.
Did you try the Fresno dealership, Kylant? The parts guy did say to me that supposedly, GM was trying to get them back for 2021 builds since they will be offered as a standard option... Now, I don’t know how true that actually is, but all of the sudden they have ALL disappeared and are impossible to find.
Kylant- Thanks! That’s the pic before the kit and here is one after. The kit is advertised as 2”, but the shop who did mine, dialed it in to make sure the front wasn’t higher than the back. I also replaced my control arms with McGaughy’s. Believe it or not, it drives much better now.
Pic of the new rig...3500 Denali HD Duramax. I absolutely love this thing and has been my preferred driver since the day I got it. Can’t wait to start doing the mods on it. I already put a McGaughy’s Leveling Kit and new control arms on it...now looking for new wheels and shocks!
I just got my Onyx Black fender flares for my 3500 and installed this past week (I ordered them back at the end of July). Looks super sweet! I passed through Fresno last week and the dealer there had two sets of flares on display (I don’t recall the colors - one was definitely white), but they are willing to sell them off the wall.
