I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing. Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!
Hi there. Happy owner of a 2018 Silverado 2500 HD lt z71 crew cab 6.0l Vortec Rancho shocks came with the Z71 package on the truck I own, and I've heard that the same model truck without the Z71 package rides MUCH better. I use the 4wd in deep snow/ice as well as in high Sierra mountain ranges so I do appreciate a stiffer suspension for navigating ruts and ditches, but living in the city with all it's potholes as well as that my lady is disabled and needs a softer ride while riding in the truck. I am wondering if there is a way to make my truck ride softer? Are adjustable shocks something I can adjust on the fly or will I have to get out my tools and time? I am curious to know if adjustable shocks would make my truck ride nice and forgiving when my lady is my passenger and something I can adjust when I need the stiffness to haul for work and for the truck camper. Maybe a set of Sulastic Springs? Will I have to replace the springs or leaf springs as well? I am looking for the easiest way to remedy this issue. Maybe just use the stock shocks that come with the truck without the Z71 package? Air bags? I don't know, thats why I am asking all of you. My lady and I use the truck together when we camp, road trip and adventure but the stiff bouncy ride is making our adventures less frequent. I would appreciate some straight forward helpful feedback. Will replacing my shocks void any warranties? and please don't feel the need to blast this post with comments like ; " why'd you buy a truck" "it's a truck" "get her a Lexus" Thank you
