I had a 2008 sierra 1500 lifted with 35's and regeared to 4.56 with a trutrac and black bear tune. I know that's a different truck but in my opinion if you want 37's get a 2500. Even 35's are hard on everything for a half ton long term. People that don't put on a lot of miles or trade in their truck every year or two will disagree though. If none of that matters to you regear for the fun factor. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G925A using Tapatalk
I had a level and then went to the eibach pro truck with the coil springs. Had the 5100's on my 08 sierra so I have some experience with that as well. Pretty much Eibach>5100's>level kit. The eibachs are very similar to the 5100's but everything is better with the replacement coils. From what I understand if you want a cloud like ride go with fox, icon, etc. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G925A using Tapatalk
I added a 1.5 inch body lift on my last truck. Couldn't really notice it was on there but it wasn't worth the effort. Same thing with 3 inch rough country "lift kits". If you want to do big tires on a 1/2 ton just get over it and get a huge lift on there. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G925A using Tapatalk
I just did mine with the eibach springs last week. Snap ring is set to the lowest but I'm about a quarter inch higher in the front. Think I will add an inch to the rear as well. The ride is stiffer but a lot more controlled. I noticed my truck didn't feel like it was going to skip off the trails while out in the woods last weekend. Steering also feels smother and in less of a bind as opposed to a spacer kit. I think this is the way to go for a level and replacement shocks unless you have the cash for fox, king, etc....

I was completely honest and told them about my experience with the other dealer and at least wanted a second opinion. They replaced the steering gear under warranty. I think removing the level was the key for them to cover it.
chris15706 replied to Waterfowler41's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI was going by this guys measurements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoDIX8yJLwM He just did the springs and set them at the bottom snap ring. I was hoping to do the same and leave the rear alone. I had a 2 inch spacer level before and the front height was perfect to me.
chris15706 replied to Waterfowler41's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI had the 6112’s on order but gave up and decided to go with this same kit. I thought the springs give you 2 inches? Did you take any fender measurements? Glad you didn’t have any problems with those spring compressors. Think I’m going to chicken out and just have a shop do that part.
