I've got a 2015 Silverado 1500 5.3 with the 6 speed and factory 3.42 gears.
I'm looking into lift kits and have decided I want to run either a BDS 6" strut replacement kit, BDS 6" Coil over kit, or the 8" Coil over kit. I've found the main differences to be
Wheel and Tire Size
Size of Diff drop
I'm looking at running 35x12.5r20 with a 20x10 -24 if I do one of the 6" kits or 35x13.5r20 with 20x12 -44 with the 8" kit. Either setup would be re-geared to 4.11's
From my research, the 6" kits don't drop the diff the full 6", its more like a 4" with a leveling kit where the 8" kit is a full 8" drop.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
I've seen other members say their 6" kits with 35's were at roughly 81" tall, which puts a 8" kit up to 83" tall. Ive noticed most garage door openings are only 82" tall on a 7ft door. So maybe with some modifications could be made to 84" tall?
Just looking for opinions on what you guys would do.
