  1. 2014+ Lowering / Drop Kits

    I guess the important thing is that the tire diameter be the same front to rear since I'll be launching in 4wd. I won't be making enough power to really need tall sidewalls up front for a while anyways. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I think you're right about the arms... Gonna have to get creative when it comes time to add sticky rubber Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I haven't been under the truck in a while, I don't remember which arms I have. My only gripe about my truck is that I can't run smaller wheels when I want to. Oh well, I'll figure something out Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    We must have different spindles or something, there is no way I could get a 17 on mine. I've been meaning to ask about your setup because I wanna run smaller wheels at the track. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Word of caution, you'll have to cut the lower balljoint stud to run 20s, otherwise you'll have to go with 22s or larger with the mcgaughys spindles Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. Max tire size?

    285/75/17 is probably the biggest tire that you can run on a stock truck. You'll need 1.5" spacers between the rear wheels. Also, discount tire won't mount them on stock wheels, you'll have to go to an independent tire shop. On a related note 265/70/17s are the widest stock height tire you can run without spacers. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eduramaxforum%2Ecom%2Fforum%2Fshowthread%2Ephp%3Ft%3D988103&share_tid=988103&share_fid=90745&share_type=t Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  8. I am indeed, I do have a very slight rub at full steering lock, but the tire just barely touches the fuzzy inner liner. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. Qwank's 2017 Regular Cab Z71 build

    These trucks are direct injected, they don't get the benefit of the atomized fuel cleaning the valves as it enters the cylinders. A good pcv catch can is almost a necessity. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I'm out of town for work today, I'll get some measurements when I get home tomorrow... Your truck definitely looks low to me, this pic is my truck with 22" wheels and a tire diameter of just about 32". I did measure the ride height before and after, so I can verify that I am at 4" in front Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    What measurements do you want? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. 2014+ Lowering / Drop Kits

    Yep, I'm still running stock shocks and struts. I am running the shock extenders in the rear, but kept the shocks. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    The 2 or 3 inch thing is most likely an allowance for different weight vehicles or something, but I can't speak for any other parts than mcgaughys, because I haven't used anything else. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    You are correct , the lowering shocks will cause the wheel to move slightly towards the rear of the wheel well, the drop spindles will not. Pretty much all the manufacturers will tell you they recommend no more than 2/4 drop on a 4x4. But that's mostly just them playing very safe. I haven't heard of a single problem from anyone after dropping a 4x4, and some guys have gone a good bit farther than quank and I. Here's what I did. I used the mcgaughys 2/4 drop that came with the spindles and the rear flip, then ordered 2" lowering springs and swapped the springs out on my stock struts. It's the same as ordering drop shocks, just a bit cheaper. You don't have to do anything else in the rear, as the flip kit is adjustable from 4-7" just set it at 6 and you're good to go.

    4/6 is close enough to level on my truck, that you really have to be paying close attention to see that I'm not actually level. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
