  1. As the title says, I need some advice from people who have lowered their trucks. It's a 2001 silverado 2wd stepside. I'm thinking of 20 or 22 inch rims but I dont want any rubbing. Max width would be great too cause I'm going to be twin-turboing it. Also this is my first truck so I don't want to be doing any fender tubbing or anything else permanent. Any help would be appreciated! Edit: I haven't lowered it yet. Kinda forgot to mention that
  2. Not really my style but I thought I would share this.
  3. Hey what’s up brand new to this forum.... Just decided to buy my ‘16 Sierra Denali after the lease was up so now the fun can begin. Was wondering what everyone’s thoughts are on a 2/4 drop. I don’t wanna get it and then decide it’s not low enough. Only thing to keep in mind is i do live in NYC so we don’t have the nicest roads in the world. And also what brand would be best with keeping the Magneride. Thanks!
  4. Hello all! It was suggested I start a build thread so here I am starting one! My truck is a 2016 Silverado Regular Cab with the 5.3L v8 and 6 speed automatic. It has the IOB 7" infotainment center with Apple Play/Android Auto, trailer hitch incorporated into the rear bumper, cruise control, 40/20/40 seats etc and although I originally thought it had 3:42 gears based on the standard items listed on the sticker I somehow missed that my option column shows that it actually has the 3:08 gears. The LT interior was a little too busy looking for me and had a bunch of stuff I didn't really need and about the only option the LS didn't have that I wished for is the steering wheel audio/phone controls but I think I can get by without those especially after finding out from the dealer the cost as well as what it would take to install. I had modifications in mind before even getting the truck such as lowering, tire/wheel upgrade, increasing performance/handling, upgrading to a competition level audio system (my hobby and side business) and of course plans to personalize it to my tastes. Here's what I have done so far and the more I read this forum the more I add to my list so future plans are below! Day 1 Before installing 2" drop shackles and removing spacer block (shows the chrome door handles I installed but did not like so they got changed quickly) After shackles installed/spacer block removed and color matched handles as well as mirror caps installed The gold Bowtie looked out of place to me so I color matched the front one using the rattle can custom mix kit you can get on eBay or Amazon along with Duplicolor primer/adhesion promoter I didn't like the look of the rear Bowtie at all even after color matching so I removed it and I also added the LS emblem to balance out the rear somewhat since now only the LT and LTZ trucks get those emblems for some reason. (I also plan to color match the tailgate handle) More coming in a few minutes!
  5. The Beginning These build threads are always inspiring and there is some amazing work and creativity out there. So I have decided to make some significant changes to my DD, it started life as a run of the mill 2014 Denali 5.3 4WD with 20" chrome rims and the BS Goodyear tires that came stock.
  6. So I'm just now getting around to posting about it but finally got the McGaughy's 4/6 deluxe drop installed on my 2018 double cab. Also got my Status Journey 22's wrapped in 285/40/22 rubber and put on as well. I think I'm gonna call this truck Vaderado The kit is very well made and went together pretty easily, I did initially drop the front end 5'' just to see how it looked but couldn't even get my hand in between the bottom of the fender well and the tire, so I adjusted the strut with the spacer rings provided up an inch and shes sitting quite nicely. If anyone has any questions about the kit feel free to ask!! oh and before anyone points it out, yes the rear exhaust tip is lower and not perfect, we ended up bending it down and busting the hanger slightly in the process of doing the rear as it didn't quite clear the leaf pack
  7. Finally got my wheels on last night! Was excited to take some before and after pictures when I got home from work today. Mods so far: - Belltech 4/7 drop (measured out to be closer to a 3.5/6.5 drop) - CK375 22x9 wheels with Nitto 285/40s all the way around - Full Debadge I want to do some color matching next....chrome painted white??? Let me know what you think!

  8. I'm thinking of lower my truck and the other day I saw a lowered RCSB Z71 carrying what looked like a refrigerator in the bed, which made me think: How much carrying weight capacity is lost when lowering the rear of your truck by 2,3,4 or 5 inches before bottoming out?
  9. anyone else have a problem after lowering there Silverado. After I did a 2x4 drop when I hit 80 mph the driveline starts to vibrate. Anyone find a fix for this.
  10. I have been trying to figure out how to slam my 2017 Sierra. It’s 4wd, I have found a flip kit online for the rear that will give me 5-6” drop in the rear. But I can’t seem to find anything for the front that will work with he 5” drop in the rear. Has anyone seen anything out there that I have over looked??
  11. Alright so I’m thinking of doing a 2/4 drop on my 14 Silverado got a quick question. Will I have to mess with the driveshaft at all I don’t want the driveline to go in to the transmission. Will I have any problems.
  12. Lowered, stock suspension looking to bring to stock height first time truck owner, bought as is Can someone please tell me whats needed love the look, but using as a work truck, do NOT need it lowered What about lifting??? Can i just take off lowered kit and pop on this Rough Country set, would it be all i need??? is there any extras in that kit that i wont use?? Im getting yes and no answers to new knuckles yes and no to rear coils?? seems im missing my right rear shock????? never took notice of that, or if a problem reason why i bounce alot?? Is it off due to muffler?? Please any info helps been to 3 different places, including chevy dealer, seems i cant get a forsure answer, dealer in my town told me it was just a suspension kit, but dont know much else from there
  13. Thinking about lowering my truck and curious to see something other than lifted trucks, anyone.
  14. I wanted to level my truck and had no reason to raise the front end, not planning on oversized tires. So, I removed the 1&1/2" blocks from between the rear differential and the leaf springs. Used $9 worth of flat washers to make sure there was still some threads left on the U-bolts. The only reason it was $9 is because I stuck with metric flat washers at 14mm. It would have been negligible if I'd have used SAE washers probably at 9/16", but was just being fussy. Worked like a top! Factory running boards are perfectly level and happy with how it looks. Went on a road trip, put on 250 kms or so and it handles quite well nothing negative to speak of. Very easy process, just undo the U-bolt nuts, remove the blocks, and put it all back together again. The alignment pins dropped right in. What a cheap and easy modification. Took less than half an hour. If I'd have bought drop shackles, it would have taken longer & cost more... so I call that a win. There is still 1&1/2" of height difference/rake in the top of the wheel well to the ground from back to front, but a 4 foot level shows running boards as spot on, so I call that level.
  15. Hey guys, I just picked up a 2016 crew cab Silverado and will be lowering it soon. Anyone know what rims these are or know this truck?
