Hello everyone, new to the forum, been lurking for a while finally decided to make an account. I have a 2017 Silverado LT Z71 with the stamped steel UCA's. I ordered the ReadyLift UCA/ 2.25" level kit because I've read so much on the issues with the factory control arms that I wanted to level my truck the right way (although it meant costing me an arm and a leg). Today I took the truck to my buddy shop, put the truck on the lift, swapped out the driver side control arm and well to us it looks like the shaft of the ball joint doesn't go in far enough into the knuckle. Another guy that works at the shop came by and thought the same thing. As if the shaft is thicker than the factory one and doent go in far enough. Not sure if thats how it is supposed to be or what but we decided to take it off and just see what ready lift says. Here are a few pictures, any info is appreciated especially if there is anyone out there running the control arms. Thanks in advance.
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
