  1. Good morning everyone, I recently purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain package. I'm personally wanting to install a leveling kit and I believe I've selected one. I've read a lot about leveling kits for 2017-18 trucks and this seems like a great kit. However, there isn't many reviews on this product by ReadyLift. The appeal of this lift is the UCA replacements and the <2" height it allows. I'm wanting to go with 305/55/20 or 285/60/20 tires with my stock AT wheels and I want as much clearance possible. I found maybe 2-3 members on here with this lift and I'll quote them below. My question is, will this work with my All-Terrain package? In the description of the kit it states, "Will not work on Z71 packaged vehicles with factory Rancho® struts." Yet on ReadyLift's website, there is nothing supporting that statement. Does anyone have any information or review for this kit? Thanks!
  2. I was debating over the rough country 2" kit or the readylift 2.25" leveling kits. I ended up choosing the readylift just for the fact that it is aircraft aluminum and not polyurethane type stuff like the RC is. The install was fairly easy and the truck looks awesome. Ride is the exact same as factory. The truck sits almost perfectly level, with only .25" of rake. Pics below are before and after. I also took off the factory running boards and the front vailance. Before After
  3. I am looking at a 2-3.5in lift for my 2016 Silverado LT 1500, but I tow 3000-4000lbs daily for my job. To prevent the rear end from sagging, I want to add an additional leaf or a helwig helper. Basic vehicle dynamics tells us that stiffening the rear suspension and doing nothing to the front will create oversteering issues at higher speeds. What does everyone do to the front suspension to create proportionate front/rear stiffness when adding a rear leaf?
  4. Upgraded my 6" suspension lift with 35s to a 9" suspension lift on 37s. I was going to add a 3" body lift on top of the 6", but decided against it because I really wanted to add a grille guard to my truck, and that can't be done without custom brackets on a body lift. Plus the negatives of a body lift aren't appealing. Went with a McGaughys 9" suspension lift. Had a 5" drop on my 2007 Escalade from them, and was happy with the quality. Plus their kits are made in 'Murica, so that's a huge plus for me. Ordered from http://www.mcgaughys-suspension.com/ , great guys and treated me right. Shout out to Sean (I think that's the right name) who made it all happen. The truck: 2014 Silverado 1500 2WD 5.3L V8 9" McGaughys Suspension Lift 37x13.50x20 Toyo Open Country Mud Terrains 20" Raceline Wheels Vehicle rubs on the front lower splitter at certain angles; will be removed. My biggest concern is the rear tires are now wider than the rear wheel well opening. So now we I tow again and the truck squats as normal, it isn't going to work. Suggestions on how to prevent this issue? Thinking helper air bags. Suspension lift is solid, drives excellent. Tires are quiet for their size (I am a Nitto/Toyo tire man for life), with no complaints whatsoever. Highly recommend the lift kit. Yes I know I am missing a center cap. EDIT: Some comparison photos added
  5. There is thread on this forum for suspension lifts, but not body lifts. Also noticing a lot of people posting up requesting for pictures, info, etc. So lets get a thread started for body lifts. Remember to post the brand and size also!!! Preferably pictures of the sides, front, and rear, GO!!!
  6. Hey all, we're a local Chevy dealer with a strong ecommerce presence. We have the lowest prices on the Kicker subwoofer package for the 2014+ Silverado & Sierra Crew & Double/Extended Cab sizes. Installation does not require dealer install. it is a plug and play package. We have guaranteed low prices that shouldn't be beat! GM offers a few versions of these units: -Double Cab and Crew Cab models have different parts numbers -GM offers just a sub upgrade, or the sub upgrade plus amplifier on the door speakers. *The standard Sub upgrade works with the Bose system. *The kit including Sub plus Amp on the door speakers will NOT work with Bose systems. For a price, please send us a message with your body style truck, and which kit you would be interested in plus your Zip Code for shipping. Everything is in stock ready to ship. Forum members will find that our prices on all GM accessories will be hard to beat. Please message me with any questions on this or any other accessory you may need for your truck. *** Currently running a little bit of a deeper discount on the crew cab models, with just the sub upgrade. Buy cheap, sell cheap is the name of the game ***
  7. So I have been looking around for a level kit I think I want to go with a 2inch level on the front. But I'm not too sure on what one to get? I have seen the rough country one for a reasonable price. I was also looking at motofab. Is there any others that I should consider? Also with a level kit void a factory warranty? Post some photos of your level lift! Or give me some input on things to be aware about.
  8. I have a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado with the RPO code ZX3. The code is for the suspension package which is ride-control/ride control manual selectable. I am on the verge of replacing the shocks, ball joints, steering linkage/tie rods/bushings. I am trying to find out what replacement parts would be correct to keep the electronic controlled shocks. I don't need to keep that option but if I am going to eliminate that then I would like to know what issues that creates. I would also like to know how to fix any codes that would come up by deleting that system. My ultimate goal is a level kit, 2 to 2.5 inch front lift with all necessary parts replaced in the front end and shocks all around. If you know what suspension package I have on the VMAX then you know each shock runs around $250 which means I would already be at $1,000 just to replace all four. They need to go and I am looking for best viable option that makes mechanical and ride sense. Thanks all for the help.
  9. I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD and just installed a motofab 3" front and 2" rear leveling kit. Looks like it opened up some room for bigger tires. I will be ditching the stock 17" wheels and 31" tires. Probably get 18" wheels. Does anyone know how big I can go for new tires? Hoping to get 34" without having to trim much. thanks
  10. I installed the rough county level kit where you put a 1.5 inch knuckle on the bottom of the shock and a 1 inch spacer in the actual spring. on the website it says it keeps the factory ride quality, but when i drive and hit any type of hole, bump, dropoff, or speed bump it bounces into oblivion, I'm assuming because the spring is already so compressed. so the question is, is it worth it to have it sitting up that extra space on the front or should i take it off?
  11. Hey everyone, I've owned lifted and lowered vehicles for years, but typically bought them way way. I've never actually done much of the customization myself. I know someone will say something like, try searching the site.....blah, blah, blah. Well, I have and there's so much good (and BS) information out there that it makes my head spin. Let me see if I can sum this up as quickly as possible. I have a 2016 Crew Cab 4x4 Silverado (deep ocean blue metallic) that I bought new last year. I had a leveling kit installed at the dealership (it was cheaper than the other places that I talked with), my truck came with 17's, which I absolutely hate. They're super tiny and look out of place. My plan is to upgrade to 20's and I want to put the largest tire that I can fit without rubbing. I've read about people putting 32, 33 & 34 inch tires on and claim that none of them rub. I'm not so confident about their claims. My other dilemma is that I do no like the look when the tires stick out several inches from the wheel well. That may be great for some people, but not for me. Ideally, I would like the tires to be flush with the wheel wells, but if they were to stick out a half an inch or so I would be ok with that. This is where we have to deal with backspacing. I'm sure that it is a simple concept, but it confuses me for some reason. A little bit too much, or too little, will make things look silly. I'm assuming that a 20x9 or 20x10 would be the best option, but I'm not sure. Let me know what you guys, and gals, think. Thanks in advance for your help.
  12. As the title states, I'm starting to research some lift kit options for an old 2003 Bow-Tie. It's an extended cab stock z71 off road package with brand new BFG 265/75r16 tires. What I'm attempting to get out of this forum is discussion from owners of similar models that have gone this route and can give me some personal experiences. There are many options for lifts, but my preference is to lift no more than 4" and most ideally, just a 2" or 3" lift. I don't really want a leveling kit, but am open to suggestions from all areas. If I were to rank my vehicle knowledge, I would place myself as a 4/10. Possible lift options Zone 2" lift Rough Country Leveling Kit I'd also like an explanation on torsion keys vs suspension lifts (I don't plan on doing a suspension lift) so that I have a better understanding of what to expect to be careful with. I know torsion keys are going to extend the depth of the suspension and cause the shocks to not be able to travel as far, but I'd accept a rougher ride as a sacrifice for running bigger tires and having higher clearance. Here are some pictures of the truck I've bought (no I didn't pay the sticker price). Thanks guys
  13. Hey guys (and gals), I'm new to this forum but I'm just looking for help on building my truck, Im 19 from Texas and its my first build. Anyways... Im looking to make my truck have a wide stance but I dont want it sky high, how high do I need to lift it in order to fit 33's (most likely A/T's but possibly M/T's) on 20x12's (most likely fuel octanes)? I know I could clear 33's with 20x10 easy with a small lift but the problem is that I want stance (hence the 20x12 rims) and that will not be as easily cleared, I dont want to trim a tremendous amount but I know some trimming will be necessary so what lifts (hights mainly but brand is cool to recommend too) would y'all reccomend? Also any tips for a beginner to watch for? Thanks!! Here are some pics of it currently
  14. So I'm planning on lowering my 07 Classic with a 2-4 kit. I know very little on the subject but plan on doing the work myself. First question: For the rear end, Belltech recommends installing a c-section kit. How drastic are the consequences of not installing one? Will my ride suffer on normal roads and fwys? If not, how much can a haul? I don't ever plan on hauling ever 300lbs. Second: I want a kit that works properly and wont cause any unwanted wear on my tires, joints etc. Some of the kits on the Belltech site come with different combinations of pieces. What the hell are the two black pieces on the bottom right corner? And what is the difference between using a spindle kit and a spring kit? I was under the impression that both spring and spindle need to be replaced in order to get a proper drop. Also, for the shocks... is it possible to simply purchase a set for a vehicle with a lower, stock stance? If so... what vehicle should i purchase shocks for? Or are the specifically made for certain vehicles with certain drops and I'll have to purchase them from Belltech?
  15. One trailer maintenance job I really don't like is replacing electric trailer brakes on my toy hauler. But it's that time. Has anyone used a kit from "Husky" that comes with a backing plate and all the brake stuff already installed? I saw this article and was curious if it's 1) as easy as it looks, and 2) good quality?
  16. I just bought a 2014 Silverado Double cab 4x4. I like the look of the truck leveled, but not looking to get bigger tires till I wear out the ones on there now; currently running Hankook DynaPro's 265/65/18. 1) Is anyone running a leveling kit with stock size tires, pics? 2) Will stock tires look too small with a leveling kit? Thanks
  17. I just recently got a 2014 Silverado. I am in the process of installing a HID kit but running into issues. At first every thing was working fine when the truck was off. I then noticed that the headlights would not work when the truck was turned on or driving. Then I installed a relay kit to hopefully resolve all those issues. It now works but the relay buzzes when the truck is put into drive. Any suggestions as to why this this happening?
