  3. 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.
  4. Here is a little extra information I found on from GM TechLink with tips and details regarding the lift points on the new T1 GM trucks. Newdude posted something similar in the frame issues topic a while back. I just thought I would add a little extra to that information. Lift Points TIP: Prior to servicing the vehicle using a lift hoist, the vehicle power assist steps must be disabled to prevent accidental activation. Use lift pads/spacers to provide proper clearance between the lift hoist arms and the vehicle’s fixed or power assist steps. After servicing the vehicle, be sure to enable the power assist steps. For lifting the vehicle, various lift points are recommended. (Fig. 13) The lift points are: Circular jack pad Widest point of the frame rail; requires adapter that is wider than the frame rail when using a hoist. Contact your hoist manufacturer for the appropriate adapter. Rear frame contact points Rear axle contact points Differential contact points Fig. 13 For the front locations, the two approved lifting points are the circular jack pad (Fig. 14) and the widest point of the frame rail, which requires an adapter from the hoist manufacturer. (Fig. 15) Fig. 14 Fig. 15 The hoist pads must not contact the rocker panels, the floor pan or, at the front pad location, the front fenders. Lift pad adapters for Challenger and Rotary lifts are available through GM Dealer Equipment. When lifting at the differential (#5) with a floor jack, avoid point loading the center section of the axle, which is aluminum on most rear axles. Use a floor jack with a rubber pad or wood block to prevent damage.
  5. My truck is a 2016 Gmc Sierra 2500 hd. I want to put new rims on it and more but not overly aggressive tires on it. I was thinking about a 3 inch lift or just a leveling kit on it. However, my issue is that I pull a fifth wheel with it and do not want to kill my clearance from my bed to the trailer when hitched. So, a couple questions... 1. If I did nothing to my truck, what is the max size semi aggressive tire I can put on without rubbing? Current stock is 265 70 r17. 2. Could I still do a leveling or small lift and be safe with a 5th wheel? 3. What offset will give me about a 1/2inch of the tire sticking out? Im new to this stuff so plz dumb it down when you reply. ;)
  6. 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!
  7. Hey all, New guy from Houston named Zach. I'm looking to lift my truck and put 35's on it. My buddy with a lifted Diesel said it will turn my gasser into a dog and I need to regear so I can get out my own way. What gears would work best on my truck for 35's? I was thinking 4.56? Also If anyone has re-geared their truck and can recommend a place in Houston? I would appreciate it. I don't even know where to start looking.
  8. Here’s my 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4x4. Got a 6 inch Trailmaster lift with 24 inch replicas and 37 inch rbps. Should I do a gear change? If so, what?
  9. 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!!
  10. 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
  11. Alright let’s cut to the chase. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3 6 speed... with 3.08 gears🤦🏼‍♂️ Completely crossed my mind when I bout it to look at the gearing but whatever it is what it is. I want to put a 3.5” lift kit on it with 33” mud tires and 20x10 wheels. Now how much of a dog will my truck be? I’m asking from people who have DONE this or have DRIVEN one with close to the same setup. I don’t pull anything and I live in Green Bay so I have fairly flat terrain. What risks am I running here? Yes I would eventually re-gear maybe next summer (summer of ‘19) and I will be putting my stock tires back on in the winter. Will I be doing a whole lot of harm in this one year span? And It’s a pavement princess so I’m not banging it through mud holes. I’ve read many threads on this and none of them really seemed to answer my questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  12. Good Morning Gents Bought myself a Bday present last week. 2017 Silverado Crew Cab Z71 Dealer had done a bunch of things to it listed below and kept dropping the price after they couldn't move it for several months. Finally had to pull the trigger. Rough Country 7 inch lift and step bars Paint Matched Fender flares Moto Metal 20's Nitto Terra Grappler M/Ts 35/12.5 Dealer removed the factory cloth interior installed custom road wire leather interior Back to my Family Chevrolet Roots from my 2015 Ram.
  13. I've researched the net. I've read several threads on this forum. There doesn't seem to be a definitive answer. I'm getting ready to purchase a new '16 Sierra 1500 and want to add a 2.25 Inch Pro Comp Leveling Kit and 305/55R20 Fuel wheels on it. If I install the lift myself, will it void the warranty? Do I have to have certified mechanics install it to keep the warranty? Any GMC Dealers or warranty specialists on here? Thanks for the input.
  14. HeyGuys, I am a total Newb but am picking up my new 2500HD 4x4 tomorrow or Tuesday depending on upfitters progress. I have been looking for a solution to list my truck about 3-4" (and level) Problem is right now I need to keep my stock wheels and tires 245/70/R17 Anyone know of a good solution that won't destroy the ball joints or other suspension components? Thanks
  15. I've been looking at the AMP Terrain Grippers as they are a pretty good price for around $800 for a set of 33s and are a really aggressive all terrain tire design. If anyone's running them can you please post pics and reviews on them such as road noise, comfort, and tread life etc...
  16. I'm wanting to put some nice looking Beadlock wheels on it with some 33-35 inch Tires, for my next upgrade. (220,000 miles so far) I would like some advice on what tire would fit while turning full lock to lock without Rubbing. I'm installing the big fender flairs from Bushwacker, that require cutting the fenders, these add 4-5 inches in width. Have a 4 inch lift in front and a 2 inch lift in the rear. (Rancho Suspension lift) I will drive this everyday on and off the farm (tends to get pretty muddy after a rain), as well as on and off road trips. Maybe even some storm chasing. I'm leaning towards these wheels: ATX SERIES BLACK AX757 CHAMBER PRO II WHEELS 17x9, 8x6.5, with the BF Goodrich KO2 Tires. Here is a link with the details. http://www.americanracingequipment.ca/wheel/33130/ax757-chamber-pro-ii How big of tire can I put on and NOT have any Rubbing? If the Tire sticks out no big deal the fender flairs will cover tires 4-5 inches outside the fenders. If there are better suited wheels AND tires for this Truck feel free to add that information. This is an expensive upgrade especially since the Drivetrain has also been replaced or rebuilt and upgraded. Looking for some well thought out honest advice. I need to run a Grade 8 Tire as I haul my Tractor for service, and I also want the ability to air down for more traction if necessary. The wheels are 17x9. (See Link Above) I would like a strong, capable long lasting Tire for the duties listed above. I will answer any questions you have of me. Thanks in advance, Texas Suburban Trucker Quote Edit
  17. For all your questions on whether or nota certain tire will fit such with such lift and wheel combo, check out this website called custom offsets. They have videos of every lift and tire wheel combo u can think of. You can even search based on year of vehicle tire size etc. https://www.customwheeloffset.com/wheel-offset-gallery?page=1
  18. 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
  19. 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!!!
  20. I am planning on installing the Zone 3.5” Combo Kit on my 2014 Chevy Silverado. It is essentially a 2” leveling kit with a 1.5” body lift. http://zoneoffroad.com/zone-offroad-products-3.5in-combo-lift-kit-chevy-gmc-pickup/c1351 Has anybody run this setup before? I plan on keeping my 22” Chevy rims. What tires sizes are feasible with no rubbing? (VERY minimal trimming is OK) I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks
  21. Hey everyone, I'm looking to install the BDS 6" lift(non-coilover version) soon and I need to figure out what wheels and tires to buy. This will be going on my 15 Silverado LTZ Crew Cab 4wd. YES, I am aware of the suggested wheel/tire combo suggestions they list on the website. My ideal set-up would be to run 35's on 17's, but they do not list it and their tech support did not know how much or what trimming would be required. I DO NOT want the wheels and tires to stick out of the fender anymore than 1 inch. Has anyone done this? If so..... -what size wheel? 17x9? 17x8.5? -what offset? -what backspacing? -what all did you trim to eliminate rubbing?
  22. Hey all, SO let me start by mentioning I changed out my stock lower ball joints to Moog lower ball joints on November 5th, 2016. This being said, I removed the stock LBJ after 40k miles (20k on level w/ stock tires, 20k on 6" RCX knuckle and spacer lift w/ 35x12.5 tires and 20x9 rims @ 0 offset), and it looks like I am needing to replace them AGAIN! Barely even 10k miles later I am seeing the same irregular wear pattern as when I had the stock ball joints. I greased them when new and at oil change (every 5k mark). I got the vehicle aligned the following day after I installed the new LBJ btw, and I also changed the UCA to cognito arms at the same time. What I am curious of is if the issue is lying in the stock rancho shocks and the spacer lift maybe being too rough on the LBJ on the truck, this being said, does anyone else with more knowledge/experience in this area have any advice or other possible causes? I have searched the internet and haven't found anything really definitive so Im at a loss. I am at 50k right now and will have the truck at the shop within the week to get the alignment checked as well as other routine maintenance performed. I am just at a total loss and don't want to run through these new tires nearly as fast as I went through my old ones (barely even 25k miles before the edges were at 10% tread remaining at best) The rear tires are wearing beautifully but the fronts are wearing from the outside, in. The outer scalloped edges are all even and smoothed out, whereas the interior side of the tire still has extremely defined edges that look practically brand new I'll get photos and attach for reference. Thanks in advance for any help.
  23. New tires and level lift installed

    From the album Truck

  24. Hey guys, new to the forum. Wanting to get a little more lift and was thinking a rough country 1.25 body lift or adding adjustable bilsteins. Truck is a 2014 with skyjacker 4" suspension lift and 295/70r18 cooper st maxx. Looking for a little direction, thanks.
  25. 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
