2019 - 2021 Silverado Long Travel Gallery
Ronjon posted a topic in 2019-2023 Silverado & Sierra ModsAs the title says, post your long travel set up with the who and why! I'm tired of not being able to find long travel builds to copy off of. Custom or bolt on, doesn't matter. Post pictures of the before and after glass sides if you got them. If a thread like this already exists please share below or if you have a thread for your build. Hopefully this gets some serious attention for the full size community, the Toyotas get all the long travel attention.
2016 Silverado LTZ - Mid Travel to Prerunner Build
AZ_RADO_RNR posted a topic in Vehicle BuildsHey All - I have a 2016 Silverado LTZ 4x4 5.3 w/ 8SPD that I just paid off and am looking to go full long travel. Here are the current truck specs: Front Shocks - King 2.5 Adjustable Reservoir Upper Control Arms - Camburg Tubular UCAs Rear Shocks - King 2.5 Adjustable Reservoir Tires: 35x12.5x17 BFG KO2s Wheels: 17in Method NVs Lighting: 2-Baja Designs XL80s (SDHQ A-Pillar Mounts) Other: Range AFM Delete The current set up is ok, I can keep up with stock Raptors on certain trail runs. Given that I want more out of this truck, I'm looking at the following long travel kits: Camburg LSK Suspension Dirt King I'm leaning towards the Camburg & DK kits as they're only +3.5 on each side vs. +4.5 for the LSK Kit. My garage isn't wide enough right now to accommodate +4.5 and will barely accommodate +3.5. Here are the other mods to follow in the next 2 months: Rear Bed Cage Whipple Supercharger +3 FiberWerx Fenders (All Corners) 37x12.5x17 BFG KM3s 4.10 Gears

How to Fix Alignment Cam Issues
VdellaV posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHello, Everyone! After Months of having to cope with noises and problems regarding tge front end alignment on my truck, i finally came across the solution The stock suspension alignment is set by this cams, which are prone to moving under load and/or getting loose: No matter how many times i aligned the truck, it all moved again while making a turn in the parking lot or getting down from the drveway ( close to steering lock) I finally decided that it was enough and after making some research i came across this kit from Dirt King Fabrication: https://dirtkingfabrication.com/products/upper-arm-alignment-cams-dk-632919 The process i took was as follows: -Re Align the Truck (-2* Camber, +5* Caster) -Mark where the position stock cams as they sit correcly -Install thenew Dirt King cams in the same positions -Add pressure washers (Not incluided in kit) -Add Loctite (Not incluided in kit) -Tighten everything down (like, a lot) For the TL;DR I made a video about it: Problems i came across: -One of the alignment pins that are pressed into the chassis fell, almost all others were loose Fix: I replaced it with a little screw and nut (shown in video) -The truck´s suspension still knocks a bit when moving at full lock, but it doesnt feel like moving Fix: Still working on it but if it doesnt move and looses the alignment, i dont care Maybe the only option is to pin point removable welds, screw it. Have anyone else experienced this kind of problem in their trucks? How did you manage to fix it? With any luck GM fixed this garbage alignment design for the new 2019s (i think they did) And as always support on my YT channel is very much appreciated
