  1. I just ordered a Rough Country leveling kit for my 2019 Silverado. I know I can install it myself but will I need an alignment? Has anyone actually installed one of these on a 2019? Did it throw the alignment off? Was just curious if I should spend the money getting an alignment or not. Thanks in advanced. I have a newer body style 2019 if it makes a difference.
  2. The wait is over! FINALLY it seems that all of the manufacturers have released their lift kits. So besides the 2” GM lift, who out there has put a RC lift or Procomp, or BDS or fabtech on their new truck yet? Would love to see pics as well please.
  3. Selling 2” rough country level kit. This is the lower strut spacer. I decided to go a different route so it’s brand new, never installed. $40 shipped Also have factory rear blocks if anyone needs them
  4. 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
  5. Have scoured across the interwebs for a video showing a similar sound that i'm experiencing. I installed a 2.5" Level Kit and don't remember if the sound was present upon install or after a couple thousand miles. Total miles are at about 4000 with the kit. It rides fine, just went to SC and back from FL. It's still a dream, just a funky noise when turning the steering wheel to the right. When turning to the left, it's not bad at all. I don't even think it has a sound. Please view the video link below and let me know if you have any questions or if you can diagnose it. I understand a mechanic may need to get involved, but before so, I'd like to try to fix it myself. I just re tightened everything just in case.
  6. I pulled this off my truck because I swapped to lifted struts and didn’t need it anymore. Super easy way to level the front of your truck. Just unbolt your strut and slide in this spacer between the strut and lower control arm. You’ll have to pick up some new nyloc nuts which you can get at any hardware store. My struts didn’t come with nuts so I had to reuse my existing ones. $40 shipped
  7. Anyone here running this rcx 5” kit?
  8. I recently purchased another Silverado after driving a Ram for nearly 5 years. Had 2 Silverados before and leaving the Chevy family was a mistake! Anyways, I purchased a 2014 Silverado Z71 4x4. I am soecifically looking to in install the 2014 Silverado 2” RC leveling kit & 285/55/20 wheels with 12-18 offset. Rough Country does not recommend this after market wheel but says the stock 20 is ok.... is it that much of a difference? Does anyone have this exact setup? I am looking for any feedback. I could also go with the 2.5” but they say to replace the struts if you do.... what y’all think?
  9. So as we all know the RC spacers dont give you a true level. Most dont want it because it makes the truck look like its sagging in the back. However, I installed mine and to my surprise the front is still 1.5" lower than the back. Anyone else see these numbers? Question number 2: Ebay sells spacers for the top of the strut assembly. I found some that are 3/8" thick which I'm thinking should bring me up to right about where I want to be. I dont want a true level, but within an inch would be nice. Does anyone know of any negative side affects with combining this 3/8 thick spacer with the rough country? Thanks fellas!
  10. Just found this. https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-suspension-lift-kit-29530.html
  11. Hope you guys are doing well! Found a lovely deal for a chevy 2016 - LT Z71 - V5.3 This is my first truck and looking to lift it. found a good price for Rough Country lift kit - 3.5 inch BILSTEIN 5100: https://psp.ae/product/bilstein-performance-shocks-15/ Rough Country KIT: https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-suspension-lift-kit-275-8.html Many people been complaining about how cheap the rough country shocks are, so I was thinking is it possible to install Bilstein 5100 shocks kit on this kit? or would they not fit into these? This way I would lift the truck + level it + have some what better shocks I thought about selling the Rough Country shocks instead Your thought and experience are much appreciated!
  12. 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!!!
  13. I have heard that a lot of guys have had issues with the ball joints with the Rough country 2" leveling blocks. I have a 2018 silverado 1500 with stamped control arms. I just put on the 2" Rough country leveling blocks. Has anyone replaced the stock stamped control arms? It would be nice to service them if needed I was looking at the rough country but they say its not for the stamped control arms. Someone mentioned moog control arms. I also saw readylift has control arms for the stamped control arms. Any suggestions would be great
  14. Hey guys, first post here! I am looking at lifting my 2015 1500 Z71 4x4 and started out by looking at leveling kits and then progressed to a 3.5" lift kit and then just decided to do the Fabtech 4" budget kit but I have a question, the strut spacers only look like they are 2" or so tall and I was concerned that this lift isn't a true 4" lift kit. Also I was concerned that the control arms don't adjust the ball joint angles because they look like they have the same geometry as stock. If any of yall have experience with this lift kit could you let me know if it is a true 4'' lift in the front or does it just bring it level bc the strut spacers don't look like they would give 4". I was turned onto this kit bc of the price and the 4" height but now I have concerns whether or not it is a true 4" Thanks!
  15. Just had a 1.5" Zone body lift added to my Rough Country 2.5" level kit on my 17 Silverado. Love the look of it even with the stock OEM wheels and tires. Well worth it for anyone considering doing this. Ended up being cheaper all together than the 4.5" Zone suspension lift but very similar in stance height. Sorry only photo I have right now will have some soon when I can clean off the truck.
  16. Was curious to see if anyone had experience with placing 305/55/20 Terra Grappler G2's on the factory '14 SLT 9" wheels with just a front level. I'm assuming that I will probably need spacers and possibly blocks in the back. Would also be curious to see any other size G2's on a factory GM wheel if you had any pictures. TYA. Picture for reference. Just about time to get new tires and wouldn't mind doing the level/new tires all at once.
  17. I have a 2017 Sierra Denali Ultimate 4x4 6.2 that I am trying to install a 7" lift kit on. I purchased the 7" kit from Rough Country and I was aware that I would need to change my upper and lower control arms from stamped steel to aluminum in order to get the kit to fit properly. The issue that I am having now is that after placing the order with my local dealer, the parts arrived and we discovered that gm had sent them stamped steel replacements instead of aluminum. The manager of the parts department tried to look into it and he could not get the correct part number for the aluminum arms. It seems that I have to get a VIN off of a truck that originally came with aluminum arms in order for them to attempt to look up the correct parts. Can anybody here with a denali with original aluminum control arms provide me with the last 8 of the vin to try to get these parts? or can someone with more knowledge than the guy at the parts counter help me look these up? It seemed like the manager at the dealer I went to wasnt interested in actually finding them.
  18. Hi All. I know this topic has been touched on numerous times now, but I thought I would add my two cents on the Rough Country 3.5" Lift and my experience. I wanted to create this post for other who may have the same lift and need some guidance on what to expect and what to do to correct the known issues. This is for a 2008 Chevy Suburban LT/Tahoe LTZ. I am sure this will apply to Avalanche as well, but may give other vehicle owners a starting point. Plus, I have not found this information on the internet anywhere. I purchased this lift for a friend to lift her 2008 Chevy Tahoe with Auto Ride. I knew it wasn't made for Auto Ride, but i did an Auto Ride delete. After all, thinking base suspension, resetting to stock is a no brainer. However, I questioned some things that did not seem right during the installation namely the knuckles. The UCA's that came with the kit were tough enough, however, they sat at a 45 degree angle. Setting caster could not be done. She had a budget and I did what I could under her budget. Also, the front axles were almost at max angle too. Well, I have a 2008 Chevy Suburban without Auto Ride, and I wanted the same lift for my vehicle. I bought the lift, but what I did different was that I also purchased Skyjacker 3.5 - 4" lifted knuckles. The cost was $671 and you have to contact Skyjacker to purchase them separate from their kit. This solved the UCA angle problem and brought it back to stock spec. It also brought the front axle angles back to to stock spec as well. Then three new problems arose. One, toe could not be set and the wheels were way out of whack. Two, as mentioned in other posts, camber/caster could not be set because the new knuckles have an offset neck. This cause the tires to stick out at the top, and maxes out the UCA within the bracket. Three, when installing bigger tires, one side sticks out farther in the rear toward the passenger side, and the driver side is tucked in. Fixing issue one: I had to modify the outer tie rods by having 1" cut off with a chop saw. I went to a muffler shop and they did it for free. Then I realized I still did not have enough adjustment, so I cut off half an inch of the tie rod itself. This preserved integrity but also gave me what I needed in terms of toe in/out adjustment. The new lift knuckles tie rod side of the knuckle curves in, whereas stock is straight. Fixing issue two: Purchasing and installing offset ball joints into the UCA's to correct the camber/caster issue created by the new lift knuckles. When I realized the problem, right away, the camber is just "almost" there but not quite. As mentioned in other posts, you will run on the outer edge of your tires. By installing this part it restores camber/caster adjustment by pulling the UCA "out" from maxed in position allowing for adjustment. The part number from MOOG RK100215 Driver side and MOOG RK100214 Passenger side. (Cost: $137 per UCA depending on where it is purchased). These UCA's come with the offset ball joint. I took mine in to Tire Rama, and because it is a "specialty" part, they installed my part without issue. Tire Rama was very cheap. I paid $162 for the install and $81 for the alignment. (This may vary based on your location) Everything is now fixed and aligned without further issue or worry. (NOTE: The RC UCA's did not work on my application. The cup on the RC UCA is too deep to accommodate the offset ball joint.) Fixing issue three: Purchasing an adjustable track bar allows for the rear wheels to be evened out. The stock track bar is not adjustable. This might not matter to some people, however, you can get the dog leg effect where the rear of the vehicle does not drive in a straight line with the front of the vehicle. Spohn makes one for my vehicle and it costs around $125. You will need to cut the UCA bracket before UCA installation if you decide to go with these parts mentioned above. I am a newb, not to working on vehicles, but to doing lifts. The lift I did on my vehicle is my only second one. The lift itself is straight forward. I added new tail lights, headlights, fender flares (Had to get the ones made for the Chevy Avalanche,as they do not make the pocket style for suburban), tinted windows (3M 20%front, 35% rear over stock tint), dual cat back exhaust w/flowmaster super 10 and 18" tips. I ran with an 18" 10 ply GoodYear Wrangler Duratrac Tire, and a 18" Fuel Vapor D569 wheel with -12 offset. My project is almost complete as of today, all that is left is to tune it. I hope this helps someone. I wish I had this information sooner myself.

  22. Sup everyone! Will be installing some new lighting in a few weeks and wanted to see what others have done. here is my line-up: I will be using Rough Country's 52" Curved LED bar across the windshield: http://www.roughcountry.com/52-inch-curved-x5-led-light-bar-76254.html also the RC flush rear bumper mounted LED reverse lights: http://www.roughcountry.com/2-inch-led-square-flush-mount-lights-70803bl.html also the RC rock lights behind the wheel-wells: http://www.roughcountry.com/led-rock-lights-709rlc.html I am still looking into replacing the OEM HID lights, i would like a whiter light. if anyone has any ideas or knows where to obtain better HID lights for the 2017 Silverado post a link, thanks!
  23. I'm new here and I've been trying to diagnose my '14 Sierra issue for a while. It sounds just like a blown drivers side front strut when I hit bumps at low speeds, almost like a "plop" sound. If I'm on a washboard road it almost sounds like a rattle on the inside. I took to the dealership roughly a year ago and they confirmed I had a bad strut and replaced, but now it's back. Recently, I put a 2.5" RC leveling kit and 33" BFG's on it and within a week I began hearing the exact same noise as before with strut but there is no fluid visible. I crawled underneath and checked everything involved with lift. I happened to grab the CV axle and it has both torsional and tensional slop. My Question: What is an acceptable amount of torsional and tensional play or slop in a CV joint on these trucks? My truck currently has roughly .0625"-.125" play in both directions. Also, my CV shaft has less than .0625" clearance from the bolt head on lower strut. Is that normal?
  24. I have a 2014 silverado 1500 with a 2.5" rough country level and I'm tired of the terrible ride quality. Every bump is very rough and rattles the whole truck. Is there a best shock option I can buy to combine with this level and get better ride quality? I have looked at coil overs but I don't think I will be happy with amount of lift. Any advice or recommendations will be appreciated.
