  1. Man, that looks great. Thanks for sharing. I’m still on the fence what I want to do. I like the look of the 3-3.5” lift
  2. Thanks for the input. I appreciate you taking the time to respond. Just so you understand where I’m coming from, I’m not set on a lift and don’t necessarily need or want it. I started down this path bc my truck came leveled with a 2.25” level kit and I notice I’m a tad nose high, which I hate. So I was looking at putting 1”blocks in the rear to help that. I also considered removing the lower portion of my level which would make it 1.5” lift in front, but I really don’t want to lower the front. I also think the ride isn’t the best, which is why I considered the bilsteins. I thought they may improve the ride and provide similar lift in the front. Bilsteins are not in stock anywhere. When I saw the 3.5” RC Lift I thought it might provide what i was looking for but had concerns about that much lift and what it would do to the front end geometries. My concerns were all the stuff you mentioned, which is why I started this thread. Im not sure what the best option is for me. I could lower the front to the 1.5” lift but that’s not preferred. I could add the 1” rear block, but that won’t help my ride. I may try a 2” leveling coil over with or without the 1” block.
  3. Thanks for the response. I’m looking at bilsteins Bc my ride sucks. When I hit a bridge transition or break in the rod it jars me and then I bounce down the road afterwards. I’m currently running 2.25” pro comp lift, which pro com doesn’t even show as an offering on their website. They only show the 1.5”, which is what I have minus the additional bottom spacer. That is what was installed from the dealer. Maybe the extra 0.25” is causing the jarring? Surely not though. I’ve looked at the fox but I don’t like the rebuild frequencies they recommend. I don’t want to be Messing with that. when you say 2nd setting is 1.75” are you talking about the 2” setting and 1.75” is what you actually got?
  4. Thanks for the response. All the things you said are the concerns I have based on what I know and have read. That’s why I started this thread. I have read several good things about the lift but none were after long term use. Rough Country isn’t the only one offering this type of lift though. There are several other brands that sell kits that are 3” that essentially have the same components. If I were to do this lift I was going to do the coil over option they offer. BDS, which is spoken well of, offers a 3.5 “ coil over kit with the same components and no diff drop. Is that a bad option too? If not, what’s the difference? Side note, which 2” level did you go with?
  5. What heights settings are you going with? Let me know what the actual lift you get is, if you don’t mind. I can’t find any in stock right now.
  6. What heights settings are you going with? Let me know what the actual lift you get is, if you don’t mind. I can’t find any in stock right now.
  7. Looks good! Did you go with the strut assemblies or the spacers?
  8. Anybody have this kit installed for a while now and experienced any issues? I know 3.5” is pushing the limits of the cv axle, but reviews seem to be good. However, most of those reviews I’ve seen on forums were within a month or 2 of installing.
  9. I’ve been reading a lot on the Bilstein 5100’s and one thing I haven’t seen much of is what people are actually getting height wise. I know the top 2 setting are 2” and 2.5”, but what are people actually getting? I’m trying to decide what setting to go with. Has anyone noticed that their’s have settled out over time? Also, would UCA be required or recommended if the highest setting is used? I have a 2021 Silverado RST. Thanks in advance for any input.
