Raked Vs Level Stance Changes Fuel Economy?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys whats up? New to forum and just bought a 2010 silverado single cab. I have the 4.8 V8 with 3.23 gears. Anyway, was thinking about leveling the truck with a set of 2inch shackles in back. I do not want to raise the truck but if anything lower it! So I was wondering how/if this affects aerodynamics? I know that the higher up your truck is, obviously will catch more wind underneath the body and rob fuel economy. My question is when leveling the truck you change angles: grill, hood, windshild, and roof of truck. It changes how your vehicle cuts through the wind correct? Im sure the difference is slight but still curious and this is the fuel economy section :)

Thanks Matt, thats a nice looking truck you have there! Yeah I figured it wouldnt be much difference. I really dont mind a slight rake so I might go ahead a drop the front slightly as well. Just something my overactive brain had been pondering :)
