  1. 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!
  2. I recently purchased the rough country 2.5in lift and 33in BFG all terrains for my 2016 Silverado about 15k after my lift install I developed a noise from the front driver side suspension and the noise is noticeable on rough terrain at slow speeds or anything other than smooth pavement a local shop couldn’t find anything wrong with it any advice is needed for an example it sounds like there is play in the strut but the shop I took it to checked all the bolts
  3. I am in the DFW area. I took my 2012 Siverado 1500 in to National Tire and Battery for an oil change and tire rotation. (Not my first choice, but convenient location) Anyways, they would not rotate my tires, due to some cupping. I have had the tires rotated multiple times before. The truck has about 100K on it, and the tires are BFG AT's with about 30K on them. The NTB guy said I need struts and shocks. Gave me a quote of about $1050 to do just the front 2. So I called around to two other local shops. Both were in the $850 - $900 range for all 4 tires. The kicker, said mechanic at second opinion, said I did not need struts and shocks. He said s GM's come off the assembly line, and may not be perfectly aligned. He said I needed to "de-align" my truck. I had it aligned when I put the BFG's on it, but not since then. I was little skeptical, but after some googling, I have found that it is possible that not all the trucks are aligned at assembly. Has anyone ever heard of "de-alignment" to off set cupping? Am I missing something? I really don't want to spend a grand on shocks and struts, but if I need them, I need them. Just trying to do all my research before i make a decision. Note: I am a traveling sales guy. My wife drive the truck much more often than I do. She told me, it just feels normal. If normal is wrong, she is not going to know the difference. I drive it to town (10 -30 miles) a weekend, but not enough to notice anything. I also haven't felt any bumpiness, so I do think the shocks are out, but what do I know... Any help is greatly appreciated...
