  1. I had a torsion key leveling kit put on my truck, raised the front about two inches. Gave me a little more clearance for the front air dam and overall gave me the look I wanted. No other mods at this point besides the keys. Factory shocks, wheels and tires. I've noticed going over speed bumps, or any decent bumps for that matter, the ride on the front end sucks. I've attached a few pics. My guess is it's an upper control arm issue, but I'd like those with more knowledge to chime in and tell me where I went wrong here. I'm a novice with this stuff. What I do know is the look is great, but that's about it, the ride has suffered significantly. What do I need to do (besides going back to stock keys)? The truck is a 2019 GMC 2500 CC, short bed. Not sure how much that really matters.
  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 know there have been a few posts about this, but has anyone successfully added a 1” or 1.5” leveling kit to a Trail Boss? I read that some people have, but have not heard any updates or results. I ordered a 1” & 1.5” MotoFab off eBay, but wanted to check around before attempting to install. 4 Wheel Parts here in Orlando says it will put the CV joints at too much of an angle than they already are.
  4. I was just curious if anyone had any recommendations or outlooks on leveling and bigger tires. I saw someone running a 2.5” level with 305/55/20 BF Goodrich KO2’s. Was thinking about heading down the same path. Hoping I can get a level with some 33’s with no trimming. Has anyone else done this setup or have any recommendations or pictures? Also how are the rides with a level? I have heard they get stiffer once leveled.
  5. I have a 2014 silverado 1500 with a 3in level on it. I'm thinking about some new wheels, I was looking at stock 22x9 with +24 offset wrapped with 285/55r22 nitto trail graps. The specs on the tires are 34.5x12. I see a lot of people clearing 35s under a level, do you guys think this setup I am looking at is possible?
  6. Good Evening Everyone, Looking to level my 2018 GMC Sierra SLT 4WD Diesel, this truck still has the GM rake that I had on my 2008 2500HD. On my older truck, I picked up a set of OEM GM green keys, installed them and had no trouble with it at all. I now know that there are many more options out there , my goal is to get a set of LT285/70R18E on there with no body trimming or modifications. Has anyone utilized these kit from Supreme Suspensions, they seem to come with rear blocks, keys, shock extensions and new U-bolts. Has anybody to install rear blocks, or is everyone just installing new keys and adjusting? Which leveling kit do you recommend and why? https://supremesuspensions.com/products/2011-2015-chevy-silerado-gmc-sierra-2500hd-3500hd-full-suspension-lift-kit-amp-i?rq=yr_2018~mk_gmc~md_sierra-2500-hd&variant=1916784705546
  7. I am new to this GM-Forums stuff, so what better way to get things started than to ask for some help! Im the owner of a 2016 GMC Denali 2500 HD and Ive been in search of finding the perfect setup for wheels and tires/lift. Ive been all over the internet looking for a setup, and ive finally found this one that I believe is the most bad-aslkdjf setup out there. WHAT IS ON THIS TRUCK!! I know its the FUEL TITAN D588 wheels with Toyo open country 35x12.50 R20 tires. This is just a cars salesman going through the truck and reading off what he can see... My question is; What wheel size is on this truck? Does anyone know and/or is able to figure out? Is this a 2" lift/leveling kit? Is that all this is? Will the 35" tires fit with just that minor trimming? Can you still tow with a setup like this? Hopefully someone knows as this is a killer setup!! https://youtu.be/a9Z9IMyzdp4
  8. For anyone considering the Rough Country leveling kit.
  9. I purchased and installed the Cold Air Intake for my 2019 GMC AT4 w/6.2L. Had to have dealership "Reflash" computer. They weren't supposed to charge, but they did. Haven't gotten anyone to call me back to explain. (Milford, CT Chevrolet/GMC). I drive hard and fast. I'm only getting 12-14mpg! 15.5 best hwy during 3k mile trek from WA state to CT. I know have 4,700mi. Put air intake after I got to CT. I have stock 20" w/All Terrain Goodyears. I'm looking to put a cab high bed topper on this Dark Sky Metallic truck. Any ideas? I'd like to level it like I did my 2018 LTZ, but with it already has a 2" lift, and I'm not sure who can do it or supply me with the parts? Lastly, Why The Heck does Chevy/GMC Trucks not have a locking gas cap?!?! My 2015 C7 Vette does! With Proximity sensor push to open!!! $70k and no locking gas cap. I don't care about gas thieves. I care about gas tank vandals!!!!
  10. 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.
  11. Just bought a 2014 sierra 4x4 and ordered the 2" kit to level it out. On rough country's website they say that this kit only allows for up to a 32" tire, and I am looking to put 33s. I am new to GM, what's the biggest tires that I can fit?
  12. About to install a 2" motofab under strut leveling kit on monday, but am very concerned with torque specs. I can't find the exact torque specs for everything I need, and I don't even know how important it is for everything to be torqued exactly to specs. It's a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ, 4x4. How important is it to be precise when torqueing? Does anyone know where to find all the exact torque specs for my make and model? Has anyone ever done one before, and can you provide insight? Thanks.
  13. 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?
  14. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 V8 5.3L. I am looking into putting a zone offroad 2" leveling kit on it but i am worried it may affect the towing performance. I dont pull a boat that often but usually a few times a year for different trips and tournaments. It is a 1997 Champion bass boat so it isn't anything crazy heavy, i just get worried with a leveling kit that the nose of the truck will look higher than the back when pulling the boat. I also feel like if that is the case, it will affect the performance and handling as well. I am no pro here so I am hoping someone can help me out! Thanks in advance. Ted
  15. 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!
  16. RE: 2014 - 2018 Silverado/Sierra 1500 Wondering if any one has installed Readylift or Cognito UCA's with their leveling kit. Did you have to cut off the service perches/bump stop? If not have much clearance do you have between the UCA and the stop?
  17. Howdy, All! New to Silverado ownership and new to the forum. I'm looking for advice and opinion on my situation. On my 2018 Silverado 1500, I just installed the MotoFab 1.5" front end leveling kit found here: https://amzn.to/2QDFgwO I took everyone's advice and brought it to the shop this morning for an alignment. They said the truck didn't need an alignment and that while my "angles" are at .34 and .35 (which is more than the factory spec) that I'm fine to drive it and alignment is not needed. Does this sound right? Truck drove fine for the 5 mile trip to the shop, wheel felt a little light at full right/left but but it tracked straight and wasn't squirrely. Should I go get a second opinion?
  18. Hello All, This is my first time posting in this forum!! Just bought a DiabloSport Itune I3 Platinum Programmer. I am looking for some decisive direction as well as suggestions on the best parameters for tuning my truck with the I3 Platinum. Specs of Truck: 2014 Silverado Z71 LTZ 2WD Crew Cab Rough Country leveling kit installed 33" x 12.5" x 22" Nitto Terra Grappler G2 A/T tires 5.3L Ecotec flex engine K & N Cold Air Intake installed Gentle 46k miles I RUN 93 OCTANE IN THIS TRUCK Being a 2 wheel drive (It Does have the Z71 package, Rancho shocks, etc...) Obviously it raked in the front. First thing I did was put the K&N CAI on and it was like a rocket in Manual 5 gear mode, when I shifted through the gears myself. After leveling kit and 33's with aggressive tread, it was complete garbage. No power, confused shift points, almost like missing. Just a hot mess. So I bought the Intune I3 first, rather than switching to a 4.10 gear (which I may do later). Already turned off AFM and that was immediately effective. Also, 15% throttle boost. Can anyone suggest the best parameters to make this bad boy get up and GO!!?? I would like to know if there is a good idea on what ECM and TCM adjustments should be made to not only get that stock power back on 33's. But also get good fuel economy. The standard Diablo Flex, Jammer and 91 tunes don't seem to help a whole lot. Still bogs down and takes forever to get through 1st and 2nd gear. Anybody know about these tuners on a 14 Silverado with 33's?!?!?! Please help!!! Alan
  19. Hey Guys, New to the forum, and glad to be finally back into a truck after a few years. So I just recently purchased a used 2015 denali 6.2 with 55k miles, and the previous owner installed a leveling kit. Now the problem is that they did not install a relocation bracket for the magneride sensor. I noticed that it seemed to ride rougher than my dads non denali and so I started doing more research on here and other places. I had heard that if you didn't want to go the bracket route, you could have the dealer reset the shocks to zero in the computer so the truck knows its level. Since I had just bought it a little over two weeks ago, I figured I would just take it back to the dealer and make them do it. When I got there and meet with the suspension guy, he said hes done over 100 leveling kits, and hes's never had to put a bracket in there. So he said he wanted to check the shocks to see if they were ok, and once he got it up on the lift, he then noticed that they were leaking and would need to be replaced. He drove it and agreed that the ride was really stiff and said with the new shocks the ride should be 20x's better than before. Since I didnt have to pay for anything I said absolutely, go ahead and replace the front struts. Long story short, got the truck back, and yes the ride is definitely better, but it still feels fairly stiff. So I was hoping that if someone on here had the brackets on their's they could hook me up with some dimensions and I could just make some of my own. I called suspension maxx, but they told me they could only sell me the brackets if I had some sort of proof of purchase, but of course I don't because the previous owner is the one who purchased it. I appreciate any help or advice in advanced. Thanks, Adam
  20. I’ve got a question for the group. Someone else has probably already posted so if there’s a thread someone can direct me to, that would be great as well. I installed a 2” motofab leveling kit with 285/55R20 Toyo Open Country LT tires. I’ve had an alignment done and even checked again. Something with the handling of the truck just doesn’t seem right. It almost feels like the steering is over compensating to a small degree or just a little sloppy for a new truck at speeds above 60 or 70 mph. Is there something else that should be checked besides the alignment or corrected?
  21. I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best. - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock. - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being 2wd. - Change to an aftermarket air intake. - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit. - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit - Exhaust? - How to get more performance from the truck. Anything would help, Thanks
  22. If I do a 3 inch leveling kit for the front and one inch in the rear, will just doing the diff spacers and new UCA’s be enough to take care of the bad suspension angles up front? Or would the LCA’s and Tie Rods also have to severe of angles and prematurely wear? Thanks
  23. So I would like some advice. I want to level my 2015 Silverado 1500 4x4 crew cab. I am just out of the factory warranty with 38K miles. I was looking at installing a RC 3/2 leveling kit and have been reading many forums talking about how bad these leveling kits are to the suspension. Not just the RC, but any leveling kit. The kit is the 3" spacer between strut and tower with 2" block on rear. Many of the forums are saying the front suspension will wear out within 10K miles of installing. So I wanted to start a thread and get some opinions on some experiences with these kits. Has anyone had issues with these type of kits? What am I to expect in 10K, 15K, 20K miles to change out due to excessive wear from these kits? I know I will need to do an alignment right after install, but how will the truck ride and wear on the tires with these kits? Are they as bad as I have been reading? I read one thread where someone had to spend $6K to completely replace their IFS suspension from this kit. Was this a one off situation or a very good possibility? I want to get ride of that nose down look and give the truck a much better looking stance for a 4x4 truck. So what other options are there to level or give a slight lift to my truck that will cause as little damage down the road as possible to the suspension? I understand there is always risk when altering a suspension, but there must be some other options that do little damage and still allow a lift or level of the truck. Someone mentioned a body lift, but that still leaves the nose down look of the body. Thoughts?
