  1. 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!
  2. I just completed a 6-inch suspension lift on a 2019 Suburban Premier 4x4. The Adaptive Cruise control keeps stating "Temporarily Unavailable". What do I need to do? Recalibrate the radar box behind front bumper? Relocate the radar box? Is there any way to bypass the radar system and have standard cruise control??? Thank you for your help!
  3. I searched for a thread that would provide some feedback on this, but did not find any actual comparison between the two tires. With that said, I would like to hear from those that have owned both of these tires and get their feedback. Could you tell a difference in ride quality? Did the R/T handle better? Did it wear down slower? Did your highway MPG improve? Once I lifted my truck, I put on 35x12.5x20 Toyo M/T tires, and in all honesty I really have no complaints. With that said, if the R/T is a more functional daily driver tire then I see no reason to not switch if the benefits are there. Appreciate any and all feedback.
  4. Group, I have a 2018 Silverado LT, the cheap one. Over time I am upgrading. Added sub box, added Katzkin Leather (love it by the way) I had a leveling kit added to the front and love the look. I want to move to a 3 inch front 2 inch rear Motofab kit. Then I will go from my girly tires to a 20 inch rim with 33.25s on it. I am looking to see if anyone has pics of the same truck with this lift WITH stock tires and rims still on it. I am trying to gauge how it will look and if it will force me to speed up my rim and tire purchase. Further, will I need to get the shock extenders? Its not 4WD and I don't go off road. Look forward to the pics!! This is mine leveled with rails added and less than legal tint.
  5. Anyone have experience fitting 22” wheels and tires on a stock canyon Denali? Not sure if I need to lift it at all first. Thanks
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. So I was all settled on installing the Fabtech 6” basic lift then the 4wheelparts guy tells me Pro Comp is running a $500 rebate on the 6” coilover kit which is usually $2400, now $1900. The Fabtech kit w/ their stealth shocks and front spacers was $1600 something. Should I spring for the upgraded coils? Vast ride improvement? 85% on pavement driving occasional off road for hunting/fishing thanks
  9. I know this thread has been addressed over and over but I still need help with a lift kit. I have a 2014 Silverado 1500. Would like a 4-6” lift. Dont plan on off roading just sit nice and run bigger tires. I read so many mixed reviews help!
  10. So I'm finally ready to pull the trigger on a 4" kit for my truck but not sure if I should go with the 4" BDS w/ Fox Coilovers or 4" FabTech w/ Dirt Logic 2.5 Coilovers... Any major concerns with either kit? Also, can I still run my factory 20s without any major rubbing issues or should I just start looking for a new wheel set-up as well??
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Zone Lift

    There is probably already a thread for this but I could not find exactly what I was looking for. I am thinking about installing a 3.5"-4.5" Zone lift on my 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain. I was wondering if anyone else has done this already and has pictures or their setup so I can get an idea. Also a link of where you bought it. I saw a lot of people said a 33" tire looks small and to run a 35", any opinions?
  14. 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
  15. Hello guys!! So i have a GMC Sierra 2500 HD 2009 (6.0 V8 Gas engine Crew Cab) and i wanted to give it a better look so i decided to use a leveling kit. When i installed the leveling kit on my truck, the truck had a really great stance with the front and back leveled. BUT, here is where the problem started. The truck became really rough and i could feel every pothole and bump on the street and off-road. At first i didn't really know what the problem was until i realized that i lost all the travel distance between my upper control arms and the frame. I was very disappointed because i had the looks but not the comfort. However, that was the cheap way of having a lifted look. Now i'm thinking of installing a full 6" lift kit to my truck. However, i'm having some doubts and thoughts about the lift kit. I did some research for many months now, checked many forums and watched many videos, non of which really told me anything about the travel distance (I attached a picture to show what i mean) between the upper control arms and frame after the 6" lift kit installation. I know i will have to do some modifications to some parts on the truck to fit the 6" lift kit parts, which is fine. What i really want to know is: After installing a 6" lift kit, will i have a comfy ride? Meaning, will the travel distance issue be gone? When offroading with the truck after installing the 6" lift kit, will i have enough travel distance to make some small (Very small jumps) and not feel a rough ride during offroading? Is it gonna be a problem for me after installing the 6" lift kit to tow anything? will towing damage my truck (with the lift installed)? What is the best 6" lift kit to put on a 2009 2500HD crew cab? What defines a good lift kit? I have seen many lift kits and almost all the lift kits look or have something different, even when both are used to give the same lift size. Why is that? Please give me advice or help with this issue. Thank you.
  16. I'm looking too lift my 2016 4x4 3.5 inches. Will a 33x12.5r18 fit without rub? May trim liner back but no metal as the truck is brand new. If not what is the largest alternative size?
  17. I just installed a 6" lift on 2016 suburban LTZ it has the magnetic suspension with rear air shocks. Looks awesome, problem it rides like a 2x4. Meaning it rides like shit. What do I have to do? I hear that bypassing the air compressor & air shocks is possible. Then put in regular shocks. Has anyone done this and if so, have you had any issues? What are they? any help is appreciated Thanks, Ben
  18. So I have a 2018 Silverado 5.3 Z71 LT and I've tried looking up threads for this topic before but for some reason I haven't had any luck. Ive had this truck for a year now and I had a level lift installed and my MPG stayed around 18-22 MPG and I could get 325-400 miles out of a full tank of fuel. I recently installed a 3.5 Rough Country suspension lift and I installed 20" wheels with 33" tires. I knew going into this modification that I would see a slight decrease in MPG but immediately after the install I dropped my MPG to 7.5-9 MPG and I cannot get it to increase AT ALL. I used to work at a GM dealership and spoke to a couple of old co-workers about this issue and for some reason we cannot pinpoint the issue. I know that increasing the ride height and the different wheel/tire package would create a difference but I didn't know that it would be this bad. I'm considering a performance chip and a CAI to try and increase my MPG, and its not a bad batch of gasoline and I've changed my driving habits and kept my foot off the throttle a little bit...if anyone has any info on this it would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot!!
  19. I’m shopping lifts for my 2015 Silverado Z71. Yes I know BDS is the best, and everyone loves Zone, and most people hate RC.... but what about Pro Comp? 4wheelparts suggested their 6” Pro Comp with new struts, upgraded shocks, improved ride quality etc (they own pro comp so I’m not surprised). Seems like a good price and 4wheelparts is a reputable installer with their own warranty on labor/workmanship, which is a nice piece of mind. the kit looks good and I have yet to find aNy bad reviews about pro comp on the web...but that’s the problem.. I can’t find ANY reviews about 2014-2018 GM Pro Comp 6” lift. here is a link to the kit I’m considering. Thanks in advance. I’m planning on running 35s https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/pro-comp-6-inch-lift-kit-with-pro-runner-shocks-k1171bps/_/R-DFCW-K1171BPS
  20. I am looking at a 2-3.5in lift for my 2016 Silverado LT 1500, but I tow 3000-4000lbs daily for my job. To prevent the rear end from sagging, I want to add an additional leaf or a helwig helper. Basic vehicle dynamics tells us that stiffening the rear suspension and doing nothing to the front will create oversteering issues at higher speeds. What does everyone do to the front suspension to create proportionate front/rear stiffness when adding a rear leaf?
  21. Looking at putting the 8” BDS strut spacer kit on my 2015 Silverado Z71. any one have any reviews, info, experience with this new kit? was going with the 6” BDS but my 18x9 wheels with 0 offset will require too much trimming on 35s thanks!
  22. I’ve currently got a 4” Rough Country Suspension Lift on my 03 1500. I’m wantkng to take that off and put a 6” Rough Country Suspension Lift, and a 3” body lift. I’m just wondering if anyone has done this and what kind of problems I might run into. Thanks for the help!
  23. Need skme help here. I have a 16 Silverado 1500 lt with the stock 17"wheels and 255/70r17 tires. Without a lift, or a level or anything. Can I upgrade to 18inch wheels and a set of bfg all terrain 275/70r18 without any trouble??
  24. So I was wanting to lift my 2009 1500 Silverado a considerable amount. I was think atleast 6". Does anyone know about how much that would cost for parts and labor?
  25. 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.
