  1. 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.
  2. The downside to a front level is the loss of rake. This is good for looks until you add a load. I was wondering if adding a leaf to your rear spring set has proven to be an economical and effective way to retain a slightly raked or level profile while using your truck to haul. I have read about "add a leaf" used to raise the back of your truck 1-3 inches. I am not looking for additional lift. I am talking about reinforcing the existing leaf springs to handle loads without significant squatting. There is a spring shop near me that fabricates leaf springs. I am confident they will do any
  3. I have been searching for best method to make my 2017 1500 Denali ride better when pulling my camper but most options won’t work with the Denali because of the electronic controlled shocks. E-trailer says their Torklift is the answer. It consists of spacers between the leaf springs and the overload spring. The Torklift is $360 and I want to be sure it works before spending that amount of money.
  4. Hello, I have been helped by various posts on this forum for a long time but now joined mainly to ask some questions about upgrading my van. Here is the scenario; my dad purchased the 2000 Chevy Express Conversion Van new from a dealership back in 2001. We used it as a family vehicle for many years but as us 'kids' grew up and married off, the van was left unused. So I purchased it from my dad and have been fixing it up. Whoever did the conversion was an idiot. They took an Express 1500 and made it into a conversion van that weighs 6,800# empty. *The front doors are so heavy we had
  5. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-12-2018 Air Lift Company, the aftermarket air suspension specialist, have just released their newly designed LoadLifter 5000 series kits for the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500. The LoadLifter 5000 series features three of Air Lift’s best-selling load support products – the LoadLifter 5000, LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate, and the LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate PLUS. Each Airlift kit in this series offers up to 5,000 lbs. of load-leveling capabilities. The 5000 product family was designed to eliminate squat, trailer
  6. Anyone have any experience and feedback on a Rancho Add a Leaf Kit part #RS60645 This is for my 05 Sierra ext cab Z71. I have 3" blocks in the back with factory springs and shocks. Torsion keys are cranked in the front to almost max. I've driven the truck like this for about 8 years, ~140,000km. Springs are getting a bit week, no thanks to a couple long haul heavy loads and am now routinely sitting low in the back with the tent trailer and a little gear in the back. Lots of gear and I'm sitting too low. I can afford another 1" of lift in the back dry but need something to help with
  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 2/27/2015 King Shock has announced an OEM suspension upgrade package it says will increase the on and off-road performance of the Chevy Colorado. The package includes coilover shocks with an adjustable ride height, several spring rates to choose from, and easy valve adjustments and are 100% serviceable. The company has posted the video below and more information on its website. If you are looking to raise the level of performance on your new Colorado, this is worth a look. You can see the complete specs at the site, but what we took notic
