My neighbor just bought one of these setups from the guy on ebay. He installed it in his wife's tahoe. It sounds amazing and doesn't rattle. As soon as I find someone to buy my single 10" box under the rear seat I'm going to buy this setup. It sounds better than my 10 and I'll get my rear storage back. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
I currently have the same 2.25" level and just picked up a set of 5100s. I dont want to loose any height so the 5100s at max aren't going to work. It would be nice to gain a little. Should I leave the 5100s set to stock height with the 2.25" level or use just the bottom .5" spacer and adjust the height on the bilsteins? If I use the bottom spacer with the bilsteins what setting would you recommend? I also already have cognito UCAs. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
I agree about the cst lift being top of the line. Rcx is bottom of the line just to get the job done. Readylift is actually pretty decent with the lifts I've done. This new 7 inch kit looks pretty stout and I've heard some good reviews from a distributor we use that has installed it on 2 of their trucks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
My truck is a 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 6.2. My current setup is a readylift 2.25" level with Cognito UCAs, Bilstein 5100 on the stock setting, 3" rear blocks with shock extensions and 295/55R20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I'm trying to decide between these 2 kits and I'd like to hear some opinions on both. I've narrowed it down to these for a couple of reasons. I'm installing the kit on my own. Both require minimal cutting. The track width stays the same with CST and only gets pushed out 1/2 an inch with the Readylift. I know that ZONE, BDS, Pro comp, etc make good kits, but I don't want to run spacers in the rear to match the front track width being pushed out. I'll be running 35s on either kit. The CST lift will allow me to add coilovers later on if I don't buy them to begin with. CST says they can add a higher rear lift to the kit because I would like to keep some rake. This will add additional cost to the lift but I can't stand the front higher than the rear. My main concern is that I'll regret not going with a higher lift kit. http://cstsuspension.com/cast-steel-uca/307-4-inch-lift-kit-2014-to-2018-k1500-stage-2.html The Readylift 7 inch lift is pretty new and I haven't seen any reviews so far. According to Readylift I wont be able to upgrade to coilovers because the lift is specifically designed to work around the clam shell mount for the shocks. I can still use my Bilstein 5100s for the front though and the kit comes with new Bilsteins for the rear. Readylift also says that I cant use an add a leaf to this kit because the rear lift blocks taper isn't setup for an add a leaf which will cause the driveshaft to have a bad angle. So I'll pretty much be sitting level instead of having rake. Which is still better that having the front higher than the rear. https://www.readylift.com/7-0-lift-kit-w-sst3000-shock-2.html Let me know what lift you'd go with and why? I've searched around and have seen a few trucks with the CST kit installed, but I don't think the pics do the lift justice. If you have the CST lift let me know what you think. I'll also be towing a Travel trailer so I know I'm going to end up with a WDH with sway and possibly airbags. So if you tow with a lifted truck 'd appreciate any advise.
I ran the same 2.25 kit without the ucas when I 1st got my truck. They didn't offer a kit with ucas when I got it. I noticed that they now say on their website that you have to run different ucas with this kit if you have stamped ucas. I put about 20k miles on it without an issue besides 1 of my junk Rancho shocks going out. I ended up adding cognito ucas which helped it ride a lot better. I guess it's because the corrected angle.

Mine makes the same noise. 17 6.2 with corsa cat back. I don't have a flapper anymore so I know it's not that. AFM shouldn't matter because it's not usually active during acceleration. Mine definitely sounds like it's coming from the driver's side. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
huntr1117 replied to OldAFVet's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI had the undercover flex on my 17 for a couple months and it started leaking at the folds. Undercover sent me a new one under warranty. That one that did the same thing in just a few months. Since 2 of the flex covers leaked, undercover upgraded me to the Ultra Flex for the next warranty replacement. 3 months in and not a single leak as of now and I love the cover. Hopefully this one stays dry. I've also heard that Rough Country makes a tri fold that is supposed to be water proof, but I haven't seen one in person. If the Ultra Flex starts leaking, I'm going to try the Rough Country cover.
