I’m trying to take advantage of this, but can’t get ahold of CST via email, phone, or facebook messenger.  I’d like to get their front leveling coilovers and upper control arms, but don’t see any matching rear shocks on their site.  Does anyone know if they offer a basic Dirt Series 2.0 shock non-resi to replace my stock Ranchos?  Something exactly like the FOX 2.0 and Icon 2.0 non-resi shocks.

 

The closest part number I could find on their site is the CSR-5530 but that is listed for the new 2019s only.

 

On a side note, MRT and SDHQ have been very responsive to questions about other setups that I am pricing out.  Right now I am leaning towards the Icon stage 1 and will add their delta joint UCAs.

They may be closed for the holidays, try them back on Monday. They do have the shocks you want.

The dealer had put on 22s.  I had them changed to 18s.  I also had Bilstein 5100s installed at the highest setting and also replaced the shocks in the back with Bilstein.  I love the stiffer ride.  I don't bounce all over the place now when I hit a bump.

Can anyone post a picture of what their ball joints look like with the 2in Rough Country leveling kit? I need to compare them to mine.

I'm sure this has been asked, but I'm lost and a little confused yet.

 

For my 2018 Sierra 1500, I am going to add GY DuraTracs, 275/60/20 (a 33" tire) and a 1.5"-2.0" front level kit (Rough Country).  Do I need to do anything with the UCA?

Thanks, did you Readylift kit come with UCA's? I don't see the ball joint as crushed as with a Rough country 2in Kit.

It did not. This picture is with the stock stamped steel upper control arms.

Didn't care for the nose-high appearance of the truck with the 2" level so I installed the 2 inch rear block to give it a bit of rake again.  Subtle difference but just enough to fix the problem. Before and after:

I love your wheel and tire choice.  That looks great.  Very old school and cool. Any other pictures?

I asked this question above, but I am also contemplating going 285/55/20 instead of the 60 tire to avoid any potential rubbing.  That tire is about a 32" tall tire, so only 1" taller than stock.

 

Would that 285/55 be a better option to avoid rubbing and potential UCA issues?  I really do not want to get into something and then have to throw a bunch more money trying to fix it because it was the wrong tire choice.

Got mine taken care of this weekend.  275/60/20 Ridge Grapplers and a 2" RC leveling kit.

I think I'm going to pick up some vinyl and black out the emblems, get an exhaust put on, and get a tonneau cover, and that's pretty much it.  I'm really happy with the truck overall and can't see getting rid of it any time soon.

This makes me wonder if my 275/65/20 tires will work with a level.  They are the same width...just a little taller.

  The 275/65-20 is a full inch more diameter than the 275/60-20.  That is not "just a little taller."  When dealing with these trucks and levelling kits, that's ALOT taller.
