  1. Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with the MotoFab front 3" and rear 2" leveling kit. Planning on fitting 33" inch tires on my truck after. Trying to decide if I want 18" wheel rims or 20" wheel rims.. so if you could post pics of your trucks that would be great. Thanks!
  2. 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!
  3. Ok guys, this is my first GMC Sierra and its a 2020 1500 SLT 6.2l 4x4 crew cab. I want to get a little more height to go a little bigger on the tires. I have been researching and researching I think I will go coilovers when a good pair comes out, but everywhere I read, and I don't know if its just the generic answer they give, says with a 2"-3" level you can fit the "bigger sized" 33" tire. Well from what I can tell the 275/60/R20 that comes on my truck is a 33" tire. So where are they, or am I getting things all mixed up here. I would like to run the, 2"-3" level and put on the factory 20's a set of something like 285/60/R20 and that from what I can figure it about a 34" tire. Anyone have a leveling to 3" kit on there truck that they can give feedback as to what size tire you are running? Looking for your help as I am hoping to get this done relatively soon. Thanks in advance guys..Hope to get some good readings out of this.
  4. Hey all, I just purchased an Eibach Pro truck kit with springs for my 2017 . So I will be leveling out my truck to at least 2.5inches. I am wanting to get some UCAs to go with it and do it all in one go and have the angles in check. I am looking at: Freedom Offroad Kryptonite Cognito I really like the Kryptonite/Cognito since they use the bolt in balljoint. I want to stick with regular balljoints instead of the uniballs and something ~500 bucks or under. Any other brands I should look at? Currently Im not sure what type of gm UCAs I have. Is there anything else I should look out for? I will be running stock 17in rims for awhile before new wheels/tires are in the budget. Thanks in advance
  5. 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.
  6. I just ordered a Rough Country leveling kit for my 2019 Silverado. I know I can install it myself but will I need an alignment? Has anyone actually installed one of these on a 2019? Did it throw the alignment off? Was just curious if I should spend the money getting an alignment or not. Thanks in advanced. I have a newer body style 2019 if it makes a difference.
  7. I know there must already be a topic out there floating around about this but I figured I would ask. I am currently running a 2" RC level on a 2016 All-Terrain with the stock 20 "All-Terrain rims and have been looking at tires. I want a little more ground clearance on the truck too. I was hoping to run a 34" but then I am curious as how a leveled will look with a 34" tire. Does anyone have that or is running that? If so can you post a picture. Secondly if it won't fit I was thinking about throwing a 4" LIFT in and running a 34". Does anyone have any experience with that? Or running that setup? Any tips or information is helpful. Thank you in advance!
  8. I have a 2019 Silverado LT RWD. Put on a 2in rough country level kit with 295/60/20 Nitro Terra Grappler G2 on the stock rims. There is no rub at all! All clear pulling in and out of the driveway and at full lock! It was close at discount tire when they did the test fit but it worked. The only issue I have is after my alignment my steering wheel is a little off center to the right. Not bad but annoying on a brand new truck. They realigned it 4 times and came close but no luck getting it exactly centered. I gave up. The truck drives straight though.
  9. If you put 3" in the front end (leveling/suspension) could you fit 285/70s on the stock z71 18" rims? I searched the forums and see lots of 285/65 (11.2" width) but when you get the 12.5 width people say rubbing is an issue so I figure the 285/70 give you an inch height but the same width as the 285/65. Or should you just go to 305/65? I've also read guys running 275/70 which is a half an inch shorter and thinner so I don't know if that means I'll be fine at 285/70r18 with a 3" lift to the front only or not. I want something that is going to fill the well but not rub, I just want more bang for my buck and if I am paying 700-1000 to swap the tires I want more than an inch. Anyone running 285/70 or 305/65 on stock z71 18s please feel free to post pictures, Thanks for the help!
  10. I'm new to the forum. I've been pouring over quite a few of the level lift threads and I've decided on the rough country 2.5 level lift for my 2014 Gmc Sierra 4x4 crew cab. I traded the factory 18s for a set of stock 20s off the All terrain editions. After reading a bunch, I've come to the conclusion I'm getting either a set of 275/65r20 tires or a set 305/55r20. I've seen a lot of good pics of the 305s bit not a whole ton of pictures of the 275s. I like the fact the 275s seem to fill the wheel wells better since they are taller, but I'm worried they won't look as good since they are a bit thinner tire. Anybody on here ran both sizes or seen both in person or have friends running these setups? It's a big purchase and I don't want to regret it afterwards. Opinions and pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  11. So, I had installed a 3.5 inch knuckle lift kit by Rough Country. I have had no problems at all with the kit. The trucks drives well and I clear 285 18 tires on -24 offset wheels. The thing is that I do take this truck on adventures on light trails and into the mountains for weekend activities. The performance is great buy I have a 2" nose dive due to a brush guard and winch weighing around 250ibs. This approximate 2 inch and a 1/4 really bothers me because I love the leveled stance. I have an offroad shop that will be installing lower strut spacers on my build. Has anyone had issues with this. My knuckle kit has nearly eliminated any stress on the ball joints, and the CV axle clears. I just have some concerns but really want the truck levelled.
  12. 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.
  13. I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing. Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!
  14. 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!!
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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.
