2014+ Suspension Lifts

Recommended Posts

3 hours ago, Detroit_vs_Everyone said:

Just ordered 20 x 9 0 offset Hostile Rage with 33 x 12.5 Nitto Ridge Grapplers from Custom Offsets. They will be here in 2 weeks and need to decide on what level kit to go with.

A local 4x4 shop recommended Fox 2.0 IFP Performance Coilovers. They quoted 1500 installed front and rear and said these would provide 2" lift with best on/off road ride quality.

This is my daily driver and looking for best ride quality along with a lift to fit new wheel tire.

What do you all think? Is this a good price? Does anyone have experience with this suspension level? Should I be looking at any other options??

I think that tire might look a bit small with a lift. I’m surprised you need lift at all with 33’s. I guess they are a little wider.  34.5x11.5 fit bone stock on a 3500.

I am happy to say that today I replaced my Rough Country 6” lift with this.

She definitely needs a wash!

BDS 6” lift
Fox full-length coilovers with reservoir
BDS rear leaf springs

Thanks!

It rides so much better than the RC 6” with Fox 2.0 Coilovers.

I've been happy with my small 2" leveling kit off Amazon.  Makes the truck sit like it should IMO.

If backspacing matches the 20's (6.06") then you'll need at least 1.06" to clear according to fitment notes for 18's (5" max backspacing).

 

That said, that's clearance for a 33x12.5" tire. I don't know about knuckle clearance or narrower tires...

 

I wouldn't want to run a spacer less than 1". Anything smaller and you're basically limited to slip on spacers. I would much prefer a hub/wheel centric spacer with dedicated studs.

I took the truck to the outlets (1-1/2 hr one way) with the wife. It was also much better on highway then the RC lift ever was. I am also loving the setup—I noticed it’s just a tad bit higher than my old setup was.

The sun is finally out today, so I was looking around under my truck.  Does this look like the rancho leveling shocks?  I've only ran the Bilstein 5100s and regular leveling kits in the past but this kinda looks like it.  Well maybe they are the regular rancho stocks, kinda looked like the leveling ones from a certain angle, but I looked again think they are just the stocks.

Those look like they are just the stock Z71 Rancho struts.

Been a while since I've posted any pics. But how j finally got myself a set of wheels and tires commensurate with the 3.5" RC suspension lift. 

 

20x9 0 offset XD 828's with Nitto Ridge Grapplers 265/60/20. I got the set for $1200 with about 6k miles on them.
