2" Lift Complete, new ball joints and all


Recommended Posts

Well i completed the lift. I need to get it aligned tomorrow and have the shop put on one tie rod on the drivers side. i couldn't get it to come off so i'll leave it to the pro's. Anyway, did 2" blocks rear, front keys are 1-3" lift(i did 2"), Moog upper and lower ball joints, sway bar links(new poly ones), tie rods, rough country n2.0 shocks, and added 1.5" hubcentric style spacers($200 for the bastards, high quality ones). They will stay on until the tires are worn out(85-90% tread left) then i'll go with some 33's and 285 width tires. For now these will have to do :D

I think if i go with new tires it'll be likely some '08 Z71 wheels like on Daryl NHT's truck. I always liked that style wheel. The truck rides a little softer than the stock Z71 shocks and the truck feels great

 

 

They are my favorite wheel that came stock on the Silverado's. My other favorite is the older style stock 20's. I think either one would look sweet on your truck.

The dealer doing my alignment had to CUT the old tie rod off and torch it and it wrecked the inner rod so i just had them replace it and do the alignment then



That looks great! I really like the stance. If you're in the market for some of those 18" Z71 rims, let me know....I've got two sets in the garage.

how much for a set?
