  1. No. Did not have to cut the upper factory studs. Only cut one of the factory bolts that comes up from under the control arm to the bottom of the strut. Was closer to the CV boot than I liked.
  2. Removed from my 2014 GMC Sierra. Front Door Sill Plates with Jet Black Surround and GMC Logo Help give your vehicle a customized appearance Water, UV and chemical resistant Designed for a precision fit Protect your door sills from scratches and scrapes Part No. : 23114162 75.00 Plus actual shipping cost from zip 18707.
  3. Thanks for the compliment! Believe it or not I have the same measurements taken at the center of the wheel ground to bottom of the fender. Don't know if yours is a Silverado or Sierra and measurements would be different? My tires are stock 275-60-20 @ 38PSI. I ran a 2.5 inch Rough Country lift on my 2014 Sierra for 5 1/2 years with no problem with CV joints. I have 3500 miles on this truck.
  4. I have the 2.5 Moto fab top mount spacer on my 2020 Sierra crew cab. I originally installed the Rough Country bottom mount spacer but removed it and installed the Moto fab due to clearance between the CV boot & the strut bolt. Only issue I had was when you mount the spacer to the strut you have to rotate the strut 180 degrees when reinstalling. This causes the tabs that mount the strut to the control arm to be angled in the opposite direction making it impossible to thread the bolts in. I took a large adjustable and rotated the tabs to match the angle of the control arm. I saw where the Rough Country top mount spacer disassembles the strut and rotates it 180 degrees. (Check their website) Looks to correct the angle of the tabs when reinstalling the strut. I also installed the rear factory spring blocks that I removed from my 2014 Sierra and have about a 1 inch rake.
  5. is that the kit with upper & lower spacers?

As far as the height, I installed the rear factory spring blocks that I removed from my 2014 Sierra and have about a 1 inch rake. You might want to add a 1 inch block to the rear... Hope this helps!
  7. Good question. I was wondering the difference for the 6.2 also. 2019 p/n 84789804 / p/n 2020 84789794.
  8. I changed based on all the talk of the clearance issues with the bottom spacer. The extra 1/2 inch was a bonus!
  9. This is the kit I bought off E bay. From Motofab website: 07-20 Chevy GMC Silverado / Sierra 1500 2.5" Front Leveling Lift Kit SKU: CH-2.5. I emailed Motofab to ask about fitment and was told "may need to trim the studs a very small amount just enough to be below the spacer. The directions are the same for the newer trucks". The spacer for the 2.5 kit is 1.66 thick and I did not have to trim the studs. The biggest issue was aligning the mounting tabs on the bottom of the strut to the control arm as you have to rotate the strut 180°after installing the spacer. This caused the angle of the control arm & the tabs on the strut to be going in opposite directions if that makes sense. I saw where other top mount kits disassembled the strut and rotated the strut 180°. I assume this corrects the issue of missalignment. Just had it aligned today without any issues.
  10. Thanks. I didn't when I installed the RC lower spacer. I did remove the axel nut this time based on looking at Ready Lifts SST install instructions & You tube video. Motofab did not say to do this but it definitely needed the extra movement! I did have to lower the control arm quite a bit to get the strut with the spacer installed. Worse part was getting the tabs on the bottom of the strut rotated enough in the opposite direction to get the bolts installed. Now I see why other kits say to unassembled the strut and rotate the strut 180 degrees. It keeps the angle of the stabs on the strut going in the right direction and makes installing the bolts easier. I would think you won't have that problem with the new struts. Good luck with the install!
  11. Changed out the Rough Country 2 inch bottom mount level kit for the Motofab 2.5 inch top mount level kit. Already had the Rear spacer blocks from my 2014 Sierra installed.
  12. Did you go with RCA garage? Don't think you'll be disappointed with your purchase!!
  13. No regrets. Had the same system on my 2014 Sierra with the 6.2. Barely noticeable while cruising until you get on the gas then you hear it!
  14. Got my Borla 140773 (uses stock tips) for a 2020 Sierra crew cab w/6.2 for 959.41 delivered from these guys. They were having a winter sale going on when I got mine. 20% discount. I communicated with Adam there via e-mail & he was very helpful.
