  1. I was just curious as to whether people ran spacers after they did their lifts. I have read that you need a 1.5" spacer on the rear after adding a 4.5" lift to compensate for the front track width being wider.
  2. Hey guys, I've been asked in the past to start a build thread on here of my 19 Z71. Well, since she's going in the shop for suspension upgrades (Brenthal Industries) on Monday I thought now would be a good time to start with what I've done so far. Started Off: June 21, 2019 2019 Silverado 1500 Z71, LT, Crew Cab w/ 6' bed (hard to find), 5.3L, 8spd trans. BONE STOCK
  3. Hey guys I know there are threads out there for it but I have looked and can't seem to narrow it down. I currently have a 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain leveled 2.5". I am looking at upgrading to a Zone 4.5" and running bigger tires on my stock 20" All Terrain wheels. The question I have though is about the shocks. I want to upgrade my shocks right now, looking at the bilsteins. But my question is if I bought the bilstein (5100's) would I be able to run those on the 2.5" level and the 4.5" lift? I appreciate any help and information! Pictures or experience with either setup or future setup is helpful as well!
  4. 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!
  5. So for a while now I’ve bee debating on the RC 4.5 lift kit or the 4” ready lift kit and I need some help on pro/cons the reason I’m looking at these two is because I don’t really wanna cut the cross member mounts off my truck and the RC you have to cut a small section out and if I wanted to I could just put a new one in if I decide to hit rid of the truck
  6. Selling a brand new set of Baja Kits boxed upper control arms. I sold my 2016 1500 for a Duramax so these never got put on my truck. They are $899 brand new, im asking $700 spilt the shipping. They fit 14-18 silverado / sierra 1500 with factory aluminum upper control arms, and fit 16-18 silverado 1500 with factory stamped steel upper control arms. NEED GONE!!!!!
  7. Looking to upgrade the stock wheels and tires on my '19 Sierra 1500 (extended cab, 4WD). I can get away with just blocks if I go with 33" tires, but need a lift if I go to the 35" tires. I don't want rubbing...but also don't want to get too aggressive on the lift. It is suggested that I go with a 6" lift. I don't do any offloading and I'm not trying to "act" like I do. I just love the look of the bigger whee/tire on this truck. Looking for suggestions from those who went with the 33" tire vs the 35" tire and what size lift you used (if you went with the 35" tire). Just throwing this out there so I can get some feedback from those who have already "figured it out." Thanks all!
  8. 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!
  9. I purchased a GMC 2014 Crew Cab w/ 6in basic Gen 2 Fabtech lift. Replaced struts and shocks as it was needed and took it in for alignment. Shop said they wouldn’t touch it until lower balljoints were replaced. So I replaced lower balljoints and put on aftermarket UCAs (Kryptonite). I called Kryptonite to insure the UCAs were GTG with the Fabtech knuckle before purchasing; they gave the all clear. I tightened all to spec, went to put wheels on and I now rub the UCAs. Upfront, money is an issue so looked for most viable solution. Purchased 2 inch Bora hub centric spacers and not wanting to trim the studs, look like best fit for my issue. 1.75” is all I needed but, I was sold on the additional .25”. Issue I’m facing now is I’m working a wheel at a time so started on front driver side. With everything attached and torqued, I lowered my truck down and driver side wheel now has extreme positive camber to the point sitting there like that probably isn’t good so I jacked it back up. I did mark the camber plates with the OE UCAs and installed new UCAs to that position. It’s as if the weight of the engine is now leaning on the front driver side wheel. Did camber plate position change with new UCAs? Will the positive camber lessen when I do the passenger side front wheel? Worried that jacking up other side the weight will shift more and cause everything to buckle on the driver side. Any help is greatly appreciated! if posting in wrong forum my bad. Just signed up, but been reading threads for a few months now.
  10. This has been an on-going research project of mine. I discovered when I inquired about having the Trail Boss (TB) factory lift kit (GM part# 84629787) added to my 2019 LT Z71, that I could not have the kit installed due to the secondary composite leaf springs on my truck. Upon further investigation, I found that ONLY the LT with 5.3L (and LT with 3.0 diesel and short box) had the composite leaf springs preventing the truck from having a TB lift added. On the GMC side, I found out the Sierra Denali also uses the same leaf springs with composite secondary as the LT 5.3L. My first impression was, “why the heck would GM do this?” Why wouldn’t the LTZ or High Country (HC) have the the composite leaf? Why would only the mid-level LT have it? The Sierra Denali has it and it’s a $60K+ truck. My LT averages around $45K. I might be a little upset as a LTZ or HC owner to find out my rear suspension is the same as on any Custom trim truck, or even, the base W/T model. I’ve doing a lot of reading on composite leaf springs and there are more advantages to them than disadvantages. Though they are dimensionally bigger (thicker) than the steel counterpart, they weight a lot less, last longer, and offer better damping properties than steel. GM has had a good track record using composite leaf springs. The same technology has been used on the corvette since 1997 with the introduction of the C5. Disadvantages are minimal, such as, they are more expensive to produce, can burn up in a fire, and in this case, can’t be further bent or altered out of original specification. This must be the reason GM won’t allow the lift to be added to vehicles with a composite leaf. I’m sure the leaf could take the additional stress, GM engineers just want to play it safer than sorry. So with this, the Silverado LT 5.3L (and LT 3.0 diesel with short bed) and the Sierra Denali are the only trucks to use the composite leaf. Though I’m disappointed I won’t be able to get the TB lift added, I’m now pretty stoked to find out my LT has more mechanical innovation put into the suspension and I didn’t have to spend $15K+ more for a Sierra Denali to get it. However with this, it seems that if someone is looking for a top-end truck, the Denali would be the better choice over the HC which lacks the particular composite leaf spring feature, if that mattered to the buyer. For reference, attached here are the GM compatibility charts for the Silverado and Sierra to see if you can add the TB lift kit. Also here is a link to the previous discussion about the TB lift kit where you can find more detail about installation and issues surrounding the composite leaf springs.
  11. Hey guys! I have a 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD WT 4X4. I am looking at installing a 3.5" rough country suspension lift on my truck and I have read mixed reviews. If anyone with a similar truck preferably an HD that is running this specific lift or knows someone who is could just tell me whether or not its worth the 600$ and if its something I should pursue.
  12. I'm looking at a 2015 1500 with a 4.3, 3.42 gears. I would add a leveling kit with 33x12.5s. What should I be expecting for gas mileage? Would a 5.3 get better MPG with the lift/tires? What is your current tire/lift/engine/mpg? I tried the search feature but couldn't find a ton of what I was looking for.
  13. I have a 2002 GMC SLS 4x4 Sonoma (4 door) looking to do a nice suspension lift on it and can’t seem to find any, I have seen a couple pictures of trucks like mine with 6 inch lifts it appears. Anyone out there know what lifts are available?
  14. Anyone have their 2019+ Silverado on 37s? I have a new one and I’m curious to know what has to be done to run 37s. Pictures and details, please. bulges, long travel, mid travel... etc
  15. Currently looking at 3.5-4.5 lift kits thinking about running a rough country 3.5 lift with the lift struts anyone ran them? How’s the ride quality?? And what other lift brands y’all recommend that include a lift strut not a strut spacer
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. What size tires should I use on my RC 3.5 inch lift on my 2019 Sierra? Big enough so they look nice on the truck and nothing to crazy maybe 30’s?
  19. 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.
  20. So I’ve got a 2015 GMC Sierra SLT, crew cab z71 on factory 20” rims on factory tires, all stock. I’m needing new tires and I wanted to go ahead and knock tires and lift out at the same time. I’m new to lifting as I’ve always driven 2wds. I want to make sure I don’t go too far and look obnoxious but I’d just like my truck to look “right”. I’m thinking somewhere around 3” with 33s but I’d be fine with 35s without lifting too high. I also definitely want the front leveled to the back no matter what I do. I don’t know the first thing about what I need to do. Mainly I’m just here for ideas and pictures of what you guys have done. Please provide whatever info you can. Like I said, I just want it to look good and not be anything too crazy. I’d appreciate any feedback I can get, I need to get this done within the next few days. Absolutely no trimming
  21. Looking to lift the front end of my 06 GMC Sierra 1500 2WD to lessen some of the factory rake. I have about a 3.5in difference from the back to front. Looking for about 2-2.5in of lift in the front. Any suggestions on what i can do to get the lift and if you have any product recommendations that would be great. I don't mind paying a little extra for something of good quality. Thanks!
  22. Looking for recommendations on a leveling kit (front & rear) or lift (4" or less) compatible with the ARC on the Denali's? If you have installed one, please post brand and lift inches?
  23. I bought this truck in August of 2014 from a dealer in Milwaukee. It had 8k miles and the previous owner had custom ordered it used it for 6 months then turned around and traded it in for same thing but 2500 with a Duramax. This is its journey.... The truck also did really impressive burnouts for being completely stock, this one was into 3rd gear A few months after I bought it I started with upgrades. First was a rolling tonneau cover. Didn’t love it but it worked. I wanted more power from it and chose a set of Doug Thorley tri-y headers and catless y pipe.  Had a little issue with y pipe not being the right size for 6.2s catback, welded factory flange onto the y pipe and it works great! Plus they look sweet! At the same time as this I also bought a Diablo inTune, it paired alright with the headers but didn’t have the parameters in it to tune out cats so I had to have someone do that for me. The truck did have some pretty amazing fuel economy though. This tank was hand calculated 24.5!! I drove the truck like this for a couple years but did a few minor things, one was an MIT tube and the other a custom tune from DiabLew. Trans tuning was biggest improvement by Lew.
  24. 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
  25. So I was wondering what is the best quality lift for the money under $2000 for my 2018 silverado since i plan on buying it at the end of my lease and i always plan way tooooo far in advance for things like this. So here is my idea. I have dropstar 655bm 20X10 -25 offset on 33x12.5 toyo RTs on my truck leveled 2 inches at the moment but as soon as i fully purchase the truck i want to fit 37s. Although the 8 inch BDS and SuperLift say they can fit only 35s ive seen plenty of guys running 14 wide -72 offset on 35x15.5 tires on a 8 inch lift and fit so why cant i get a 37x12.5 on my 10 wide. So what lift would you guys go with in my situation. Im mainly looking at the mcgaughys 7-9, BDS 8inch, Superlift 8 inch. What one do yall think is gonna be my best bet. Thank You.
