2 or 3" Drop Shackles 2500HD


Recommended Posts

I have been looking through here and it appears that most everyone chooses to go with a leveling kit to level their trucks. I have the stock 245/75/16 tires on my 09 Silverado. I have been looking at the Rough Country 2.5" leveling kit that a lot of you guys use, but I'm not sure how my truck will look with stock tires. I just put $900 worth of tires on it and I would like to stay with the stock size tires/wheels. I don't have a very tall garage, so I was wondering about putting a set of 2" or 3"drop shackles on the rear of the truck. It looks like it will accomplish the same as a leveling kit and get rid of some of the extra wheel well that these trucks have all while avoiding an alignment job. My questions/concerns are: 1: Does this affect anything if I would ever put a gooseneck hitch in and tow a trailer? 2: Should I go with a name brand such as McGaughy's or are the cheaper ones at AutoZone or on ebay just as good? (They are just shackles) 3: What are your general thoughts about what it will look like? Thanks!

Here is how it sits currently:

Sorry, didn't get the picture on the first post. Would rather not do the half ton springs but I guess the add-a-leaf or bags would be an option if I start to tow things very often.
