  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. I want to level my 2016 gmc 2500hd denali and put bigger tires on it, can someone please tell me the best height and tire size, plus what WONT screw up the magnetic ride control!?

  16. Which size tires will fit?

    Hello, I have purchased a 2015 Silverado 1500 crew cab 4x4 LTZ. I am getting a 2.5 inch RC leveling kit installed tomorrow and I am wanting to go ahead and place the order for some 33 inch M/T's. My buddy has a 2014 Silverado and he installed 33X12.5X20's without any scrubbing. My question is will the 33X12.5X20s fit on my stock LTZ without scrubbing or will I need to get a different 33 inch tire? I know they come in different conversions but I wasn't sure if those would fit or not. Thank you! -Blake
  17. Hey, I'm new to this site. Just put a 2.5inch RC leveling kit in my 2014 silverado 4x4. I really want to get 305/55r20 Nitro trail grapplers on some 20x9 rims +18 offset. I'm wondering if anyone has this setup and what kind of rubbing issues you have if any. I'd love to see some pics or even suggestions on the next tire size down that would fit if the 305s don't. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks guys
  18. Hey everyone, Has anyone found a metal skid plate to replace the plastic ones that came from the factory on 2014-2015 Silverado 4wd? I've found quite a few that are specifically for lifted applications, but none for stock or level height.
  19. Howdy!

    Howdy from Spring, Texas (north of Houston). Owner of a 2013 Silverado 5.3L, 75k miles. I bought the Motofab 3" Front, 2" rear leveling kit and Bilstein 5100's all around. The Houston streets are brutal. I cannot get the front leveling spacers installed for the life of me. It is the spacer that bolts to the top of the strut. I cannot get the lower control arm down enough to get the lower part of the strut onto the control arm. Am I missing something? Wanted to add a little lift and level to the truck. the plan is to keep her forever as she'll let me have her. She is a great truck and now that she is paid off, I want to start adding on to her, starting with the leveling kit, shocks, and brakes. 2 out of 3 so far. Next a head unit/speakers/amp.
  20. Hello everyone, I bought a 2013 Z71 and want to have a level kit installed on the front end. I'm concerned if this might change the way the truck rides or affect the aerodynamics and/or mile per gallon that I get. Any feedback is appreciated! thanks
  21. I am in the need of new tires and currently i have the stock 17 inch rims and stock tires. I am going back and forth whether i should level it or lift it and get 33's if level or 35's if lifted, or just get 275/65 18 with new wheels. The cost is just quite high and i don't know if it is really worth it to level or lift it. Quotes Leveling 2.5 in with 33/12.5/20 Toyo RT is like $3800 5 inch lift with 35/12.5/20 Toyo RT is $5000 or just get Toyo AT and 18 inch wheels is like $2100 I just don't know if can/should justify either the level or the lift. And would love to hear anyone's thoughts on the matter. Thanks
  22. Looking for the best deal online for a 2.5" leveling kit for my 2017 GMC Sierra 4wd
  23. Hi all, I am looking to start a slow conversion to turn my truck into something like a prerunner and I'm looking for suggestions and advice. Current set-up: 2015 LTZ Crew cab 4X4 w/6.2L and 8spd tranny -Rancho Quicklift Leveling Struts -275/70/r18 General Grabber AT2(on stock alloys) Goal: -Make my truck look something similar to the 2nd picture Information needed: -What is the best order to do the mods in considering some require others already be in place? -What parts will I need aside from bumpers, fiberglass fenders/custom fender wells? -What parts will 35's or 37's rub in the front? In the rear?(assuming I already have 3inch or 5.5 inch fiberglass fenders already installed) -What issues will I run into with each modification? -When after I get to the desired appearance, what suspension is highly recommended for daily deliverable yet efficient off-road(i.e. Fox 2.0? 2.5? Icon stage? King ? Etc.) Thanks!
