  1. Selling 2” rough country level kit. This is the lower strut spacer. I decided to go a different route so it’s brand new, never installed. $40 shipped Also have factory rear blocks if anyone needs them
  2. My 2017 Sierra had a 2" Motofab front level installed by a local accessory shop, and I had unresolved noises and issues which were troubleshooted by the installing shop and my dealership until I got rid of the truck. I traded the truck for a 2019 AT4 and am now very hesitant to level a brand new truck. My dealership is recommending they install the Pro Comp 63235 for $875. They even have a few trucks on the lot with this kit installed. Dealer says they will stand by factory warranty if they do the work, but Pro Comp says this kit is not rated for the AT4, so I am hesitant to go this route. The local accessory shop is quoting the only kit made for the AT4 - Rough Country Sku: 1318 for $350. My end goal is to level the front and go with 295/65/20 (35.1") or 295/60/20 (33.9") Nitto Ridge Grapplers, but my concerns are warranty and sacrificing ride quality. The noises and constantly chasing issues made me hate driving my previous truck. Has anyone ever been denied OEM warranty work due to an after market front level? Rough Country says to contact them immediately if this would be the case, but the "Warranty Guard" fine print looks like the beginning of a run-around. I appreciate any thoughts and experiences.
  3. 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!
  4. I like the fact that my 6.2 has lots of power and actually does get good gas mileage. I can run 65/70 and easily get 23-25mpg. I’m about to upgrade tires and looking for recommendations. I know I’ll lose some mpg and possibly low end power, but I don’t want to turn my beast of a truck into a turd. I currently have stock 275/55r20 (31.9x10.8) on stock “snowflake” rims with Bilstein 2” strut/shock upgrade. 3 tire sizes I’m interested in: 275/60r20 (33x10.8) 285/55r20 (32.3x11.2) 295/55r20 (32.8x11.6) If I had my way, I’d throw a 305/55r20 on there but I know I’d kill my power. I know this because I have 295/55r18 on my Ford and I ended up doing a gear swap from .373 to .456 to bet my power back. I’m in the real estate business. I buy and sell farm and recreational land so I put lots of hwy miles on this GMC yet still need a tire to get me in and out of places on the farm and pull a tractor when I need to. I have trucks to mudbogg in, looking for practicality here. Really hoping to to hear from guys with 6.2s. Thanks in advance.
  5. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra 4x4 Crew Cab with the standard bed. I have the Rancho Quick-Lift front struts for the front that level the front about 2-1/4". I am looking at adding an additional 1" of lift front and rear. The rear will be either blocks or an add-a-leaf kit. The front will be done with strut spacers while also adding Upper Control Arms and a 3/4" differential drop kit to keep the upper ball joints and CV joints within factory specs. I am looking for something to help with the lower control arms, steering links, and sway bar end links or drop brackets to keep the rest of the suspension geometry in alignment. Does anyone have any sources for any of these components besides fabricating them?
  6. Ok so this is my first post on hear but im not new to this place ive used this forum thousands of times in the past as I am only 18years old i started off in a 03 gmc 1500 short bed reg cab stick shift, but up here in mass 2wd wasnt gonna cut it so after that I had a trailblazer for the past year and now Ive been lucky enough to get back into trucks with my new 1500 that i'm leasing, its an LT Z71 with 4wd and the 5.3. Im perfectly happy with how the trukc is as of now but I definitely want/"need' it to be leveled as my whole family Cousins, aunts, uncles, father, and mother have atleast a leveling kit or just a beefy vehicle as now im the only one without some ground clearance, but i dont know which leveling kit is the best choice as i want to stay under 3 inches. So if anyone could help me it would be great id like to know the best kits under a few categories. 1-Best ride. 2-Best bang for your buck. 3- Eastiest install. 4- Best offroad capability. 5- The best kit in general. I have been told the Bilstien 510 is a great choice but before i pull any triggers i'd like to know all my options as I won't be getting the kit within a month or two as the truck only has 900 miles. Thank you
  7. I pulled this off my truck because I swapped to lifted struts and didn’t need it anymore. Super easy way to level the front of your truck. Just unbolt your strut and slide in this spacer between the strut and lower control arm. You’ll have to pick up some new nyloc nuts which you can get at any hardware store. My struts didn’t come with nuts so I had to reuse my existing ones. $40 shipped
  8. Hello everyone, Been doing Alot of reading and searching regarding lifting my 2017 Silverado Z71 crew cab. There's so much info out there it can be overwhelming. I have already decided to NOT go with a suspension lift due to cost and not wanting to change the factory ride. Considering I am wanting a visual lift for cosmetic reasons only, I see no reason as to spend the extra money when I am looking for no performance enhancement. I am however conflicted between going with a 2.5" front level and 1.5" body lift, or a front 2.5" front level AND rear level. I am wanting to stick with 18" wheels and try to get a 33-34" tire under the truck. While cost is a factor, I want to ensure the longevity of my truck and not cause TOO much wear and tear on the trucks components. So if one of the above options is "better" as far as less wear and tear on stock components than the other, that would be a factor as well. Any info is appreciated.
  9. Installed a 3" Motofab level on my truck last weekend. Rear is stock. Added 20x12s with 33x12.5 tires. Minor plastic and metal trimming, no rub at all. Smoked my tails and 3rd brake light. Will smoke my front turn signals and corner markers this weekend. Will also vinyl wrap the chrome mustache on the bumper, unless someone wants to trade for all black. Going to do a muffler delete (leaving resonators) and clamp the flapper valve open, will also add a Range AFM delete. Has 30% tint now, will eventually do 15% this summer. Will post more pics as I make progress.
  10. 4x18 inch Chevy wheels $300 plus shipping UCAs replac stamped steel and aluminum oem UCAs 2014-2018 have about 100 miles. SOLD. Stuff is just sitting in my garage need it gone. Located in Texas.
  11. Hey everyone, I have been reading through the forum and was going to post this in the “leveling kit” thread but like a lot of questions that have been asked I didn’t want it to get lost in the 475+ pages. I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 4x4 LT. I have been putting off installing a leveling kit till I needed tires and the time has come. I’m looking at the Eibach Pro Truck Kit with Rough Country 2” rear blocks. After reading the leveling kit kit tread I’m a little confused. I have the stock 20” High Country wheels on my truck and really like them. Can I go to a 275/60/20 or larger tire? I don’t want to do a leveling kit if I can’t get a larger tire ti fit and the rim rubs the upper control arm. Thanks for for all your help in advance.
  12. So as we all know the RC spacers dont give you a true level. Most dont want it because it makes the truck look like its sagging in the back. However, I installed mine and to my surprise the front is still 1.5" lower than the back. Anyone else see these numbers? Question number 2: Ebay sells spacers for the top of the strut assembly. I found some that are 3/8" thick which I'm thinking should bring me up to right about where I want to be. I dont want a true level, but within an inch would be nice. Does anyone know of any negative side affects with combining this 3/8 thick spacer with the rough country? Thanks fellas!
  13. Hello everyone, new to the forum, been lurking for a while finally decided to make an account. I have a 2017 Silverado LT Z71 with the stamped steel UCA's. I ordered the ReadyLift UCA/ 2.25" level kit because I've read so much on the issues with the factory control arms that I wanted to level my truck the right way (although it meant costing me an arm and a leg). Today I took the truck to my buddy shop, put the truck on the lift, swapped out the driver side control arm and well to us it looks like the shaft of the ball joint doesn't go in far enough into the knuckle. Another guy that works at the shop came by and thought the same thing. As if the shaft is thicker than the factory one and doent go in far enough. Not sure if thats how it is supposed to be or what but we decided to take it off and just see what ready lift says. Here are a few pictures, any info is appreciated especially if there is anyone out there running the control arms. Thanks in advance.
  14. From the album: Post Level

    2014 1500 SLT Z71, 20" stock wheels, struts and shocks (Rancho); generic front 2.5" strut top spacers, Rough Country forged upper control arms, Moog control bar bushings, AC Delco control bar connectors, generic 3/16" hub-centric front wheel spacers, ReadyLift 2.25" rear blocks, 275/60R20 Falken AT3W
  15. Hey Guys, I have been reading this forum for awhile and seen different answers. But I got a 2.5” Motofab top and bottom mount leveling kit (similar to RC 2.5”) installed on my 2017 GMC Sierra CC Z71 and I’m interested in larger tires and keeping my stock rims. I have read that larger tires might come in contact with the UCA. I’m interested in the Ridge Grappler or the Wildpeaks AT3w. I am wondering what size tires will fit with no rubbing or no contact with the UCA. Please inform. Possibly looking at the following sizes: 275/60R20 275/65R20 285/60R20 285/55R20 295/55R20 305/55R20 Just looking for the most bang for my buck. Thanks in advance.
  16. Ive always had a moderate pull to the right when hands off the wheel. To drive straight, I have to hold the wheel about 1/2 inch turned to the left. I noticed the passenger right tire tread was chopped in irregular patterns, but they were old tires so I didn't care. I put off identifying and fixing the issue. I recently got the truck leveled and new, expensive AT tires. I got the truck aligned and was told it was "way misaligned," however the issue is still there, although a little better. I don't want to chop up these tires and want to be able to take my hands off the wheel and not start drifting right.Any ideas? Easy fix? Hard fix?FWIW, 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche Z71. 144,xxx miles, everything all original. Now have new keys for the level and new 285/70/17 Toyo tires
  17. Hey guys, I'm going to to be lifting my 2014 ltz around 4 inches and want to know what you think the major areas to monitor are. Obviously doing the bare minimum can put stress on certain components but my question is, what are these components? What should I watch out for specifically? And are there packages I can buy to cover all the bases?
  18. I just bought a 2015 Sierra Denali and I would really like to lift the front end to level the truck out. I’d rather not drop the rear end. I have scoured the forums and the Internet, looking for a leveling kit that works with the Magnetic Ride Control. Has anyone successfully installed a leveling kit that works with the magnetic ride control? I assume the kit would have to include some sort of relocation brackets for the sensors? I saw someone said the suspension maxx kit works with the magnetic suspension, but I did not find any information to back that statement up. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!!
  19. I am looking at the Readylift 66-3086 2.25" FRONT LEVELING KIT W/ CONTROL ARMS - GM 1500 TRUCK / SUV 6-LUG 2017-2018 https://www.readylift.com/2-25-front-leveling-kit-w-control-arms-gm-1500-truck-suv-6-lug-2017-2018.html For my 2017 Silverado 1500 LT with factory 17 inch aluminum wheels and 255/70R17 tires. After talking to the company, they said that I may need a 1/2 inch wheel spacer for the front so the control arms don't rub on the wheels. Is this true or is this something to try and get me to buy? The main reason I am looking at replacing the upper control arms is because I have an aftermarket heavy duty bumper with grill guard and it weighs around 200Lbs. That worries me with the factory STAMPED control arms it has now. If I need spacers, what spacer is best and cheap? Would I have to modify the studs? What else would I have to do so it doesn't rub? Thanks!
  20. In regards to leveling these new GMCs (mine: 2018) is there a definitive answer on what the issues are? And specifically how to avoid the issue? I have fine tooth combed every forum possible and it’s like throwing darts drunk. I've heard it'll blow out the ball joints, the electronic steering gear, tie rod ends, etc. I've heard don't go over 1.75", don't go over 2.5", and even 2.25" is the limit before you'll have issues. I've heard it's from installation errors... Like no support under control arm when you knock the knuckle to separate the ball joint and the sudden drop/slack causes damage. I've heard if you don't disconnect the electronic power steering harnesses or battery the shock from separating the ball joint can cause a spark that damages the EPS. I've talked to multiple 4x4 shops that install these and most say they've done hundreds/thousands with no issues, which of course I doubt. It's just too widespread of an issue. So does anyone know the secret recipe to a level kit that won't screw up the front end on these new GMCs? Is there anyone out there that's put a substantial amount of miles (25k or more) with their level kit with out the clicking, popping, etc? Sorry to beat a dead horse.
  21. Just wondering how much rubbing there is with 275/70r/18 with a 2.5" level on the front.
  22. What's up guys, new to the forum, i finally got around to buying a leveling kit for my 2011 silverado z71 and now I'm tire shopping. I'm probably going with the general grabber at2 275/65/18 on stock rims but I'm worried they'll look too small. I only have 3.08 gears and was thinking about 275/70/18 but I'm worried about putting too much strain on the transmission. Ive been spending way too much time trying to find pics of trucks with 275's and haven't had much luck. all i seem to find are pics of the overly popular and expensive 285/65/18 (almost all on truck with 3.42's). any opinions or pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot guys
  23. Hi, has anyone teied the cast steel skyjacker 2” level kit? Thoughts? Is cast steel a good material for this function? Isn’t cast going to rust? Just wondering because my local dealer uses them and I want to get the best one for my 2018 Silverado. Thanks. https://skyjacker.com/shop/leveling-kit/c1420lmsa/
  24. I have a 2014 Denali and I currently have the ride height adjustable bilsteins shocks and they don't lift the truck enough to actually level it and I am wanting something with better performance. I want a coilover that gives 2.5-3" of front lift and upper control arms. I am looking at the icon, King, fox and Baja kits but I want to run my stock 20" rims. Does anyone have any input on what kit they went with, how it rides and if it can run stock rims? Any input is greatly appreciated!!
  25. Anyone with a 2017/18 who went the Bilstein route and had the steering popping noise? Seems this is the preferred and safest option. I've kinda made my mind up to go with Bilsteins instead of spacers due to the fact that I've read numerous cases of steering issues with spacers. Just figured I'd feel the water before jumping in. Thanks!
