  1. Hey guys, I noticed Rough Country came out with the new knuckle lifts. They made the 6, 7.5, and 5. Just wondering if anyone has tried this lift yet and wondered if anybody had any opinions on these vs the regular 5 and 7in lift RCX makes.
  2. Well the time has come and I have decided to lift my truck 2014 GMC Sierra Sle z71. I am sold on the bds kits but I do not know whether to get the 6in or the 4 in kit. The tires I would like to get are 35 in toyo at2 with 20in fuel hostages. But I am also stuck on deciding whether to get 35s or 33s I really do not want to have to do any trimming. I am going to get the fox shocks in the rear with the leaf spring option as well. So the main questions I have are 1.does the lift kit void the warranty? 2.should I go with the 6in or 4in lift kit ? 3.Should I go with 33s or 35s ? 4.Will there be a major change in the accuracy of the speedometer? 5.if there is can you please tell me how to fix that? 6. Can anyone who is running these kits show me pictures? 7. How is the ride after the lift? 8.how much is the change in mph with the 6 and 4 in kits If in the end if I do go with the 6in lift I am going to get 35s regardless I personally do not like the look of having all that lift and small tires. I was debating on 33s if I get the 4 in lift but it can also fit 35s .Im sorry for all the questions but this is the first time I am ever lifting a truck and I would like to do it right . I am open to all opinions and all replies are greatly appreciated
  3. I have a FTS 7" lift kit that I just took off my truck. It comes with everything you need to fit 35" tires with no trimming required and no rubbing at all. The kit is for 2014-2015 Silverado/Sierra 2wd trucks. Im going with a bigger kit to try and stuff some 37's under there so I no longer need this kit. Everything has exactly 286 miles on them. It is the FTS kit # 84981 and comes with Pro-Comp rear shocks. I really like the ride quality using this lift but I really want to go bigger. I was able to fit 35" toyo open country m/ts on 22" fuel mavericks with absolutely no trimming or rubbing. I paid over $2000 for the kit plus the rear shocks a month ago. Im asking $1000 for everything. I'll post some pics of everything tomorrow since it got dark on me today.
  4. After endless reading I figured I would reach out and just ask for help with what I'm looking for. I have a 2014 v6 sierra sle. I'm just looking for the off road look not planing on taking it off road or anything. I plan on going with 33 or 35 tires and 20inch rims here are my questions. I'm looking for an affordable lift kit. 1 Is it better for me to do RC 2.5 front 1 rear plus 1.5 zone body lift? VS 4 inch suspension kit? 2 in your opinion what's the best affordable suspension kit. 3 what makes it a full suspension kit vs a glorified leveling it? 4 Is RC 3.5 a real suspension kit? Thank you I'm new to trucks and the site. This is what mine looks like so far. Nothing fancy.
  5. Okay people, I have never done a lift kit yet and I have heard alot of pros and cons so help me out here. I have a 1998 chevy k1500 silverado edition with a 5.7. I have wanted a lift for awhile well guess what? I got one for christmas and it's just a starter. I have the new slightly bigger than stock, torsion keys and rear blocks. I have heard once you put this on, you start eating parts. So I guess I'm asking, what's the best way to do this? Put the lift on and only crank it to 2.5? Supposedly you can get a 3 inch lift out of the front, but not suggested. Any help would be great, thanks.
  6. I have a Brand New still in the boxes BDS Lift kit for an 07-13 4wd 1500. Need to sell this thing, willing to deal, make me a reasonable offer, worst i can say is no!!! No way to ship, have to be willing to come get or meet! Pd $1818, asking $1400.... Will accept paypal or cash. Located at 26726
  7. Hi all, I've been reading through the lift threads and a lot of people are talking about the Rough Country lift. Is that because that's what Chevy uses? Does Chevy even have an OEM kit for lifting their trucks? I want to do a lift on my truck but I have no idea where to start. I know that I want something like a 4-6" lift and I don't want to go cheap. I want quality. My favorite lift on here is a dude with the handle "rotten tomato". He has a red Silverado and I believe it's a 4" lift by a company called BDS. That lift is CLEAN! I want something like that! Anyway. Does anybody know how to get this done without voiding the manufacturer's warranty? Can anyone tell me the difference between RC and BDS? Is there really a discernible difference?
  8. i have a 2007 chevrolet silverado LT with the 20'' aluminum factory chevy rims and want to put a lift kit on i was thingking about the rough country 3.5 inch suspension lift, i would like to put on either bf goodrich all terrains 285/65R20 or 285/60r20 goodyear wrangler dura tracs, will these fit with out rubbing ? and will it lookgood with factory 20" rims
  9. Hey everyone new to the site today proud owner of my first GMC. i have a leveling kit with 33's. im looking to go to 34's. wondering if they will rub with just having the leveling kit? Also looking for a nice looking aggressive tread but with good life. Suggestions and advice? Thanks again Troy ill post some pics of the truck soon
  10. I have a 2008 Sierra Duromax and I have installed a leveling kit into it that will allow me to have 33" tires. I am going to put new rims and tires on. the rims are 20x10 w/-24 offset and the tires will either be 305/55R20 or 295/55/R20 they give me a tire diameter of 33.39" or 32.91". Where my worry comes in is because of the width of the tire and the offset, will i need to go bigger than just the leveling kit to make my tires fit. If anyone has any knowledge on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
  11. I have a 2014 Silverado Z71 Crew Cab. I have been lurking on this site for a couple months, but figure its time to get some advice. I am looking at a lift so I have 2 questions 1. I am leaning towards a Fabtech 6" over a RCX 7.5 anyone able to make a case why the RCX (which is a little cheaper) would be a better option. 2. I have a 3.42 gear ratio and I am a little worried about 35 inch tires. The dealership will still back my warranty after a lift and the shop will warranty the lift. Question: Should I stick with a 6" lift with 35" tires or should I play it safe with a 4" lift and 33's. I have an Airaid intake, Magnaflow exhaust and will be getting a tune through Blackbear. Any thoughts would be helpful, I have read every lift thread there is but many do not specifically address these questions. Thanks
  12. Hey guys, newbie from northern Canada here, I just picked up a 2014 all terrain, 6.2 in iridium metallic. Loving it! I've got some questions regarding lift kit cab heights if anyone has lifted some of the 14's already. I live in a condo building and the parking garage is max clearance is 6'10"...I want to get the biggest lift possible so I was curious as to how tall one of these sits with a 4" lift and 33's...or will I be stuck going the leveling kit route? If anyone has a '14 with a 4" lift, get a tape measure and check it out for me! please. It's a beautiful truck, just can't leave well enough alone!
  13. Hello, I was wanting a little help here if you don't mind. I have a new 2014 Silverado Z71 and I want to add a lift kit to it (preferably between 3" to 4") and add some new rims and tires. I have purchased (and not yet installed) XD Spy 18" rims with -12 offset and also these Toyo Open Country AT/II wheels for use after the vehicle is lifted. I would like to know which lift kit I should get as there are so many different vendors. Here is specifically what Im hoping for: 3 to 4" lift No cutting on my new truck Reuse my stock rancho shocks on the front and back Allow my rims and tires the clearance they need for no rubbing Less than $700 for the kit Something I can install myself with basic tools (no strut compressors, etc) I have done two days worth of research and just end up with more questions on top of more questions. Any help you can provide (with pics preferably) would be great! Thanks
  14. Sorry if I misplaced the topic I am new to the site and wasn't sure where to put this question. I have a 6 inch rough country lift kit for silverado Z71 2005 5.3L 1500. I wanna add a couple more inches for just a bit more height and a little better clearence so my 35s dont rub when im out bouncing around mudding. Id like to do it cheep but I need to do it right. I love my truck and need it for years to come. Would cranking the torsion bars up a bit and adding a leaf in the back do the job for me? I dont wanna start having stuff wear and need replaced up front so im really unsure of what to do. Any help is appreciated!
