I just ordered a Rough Country leveling kit for my 2019 Silverado. I know I can install it myself but will I need an alignment? Has anyone actually installed one of these on a 2019? Did it throw the alignment off? Was just curious if I should spend the money getting an alignment or not. Thanks in advanced. I have a newer body style 2019 if it makes a difference.
I bought this truck in August of 2014 from a dealer in Milwaukee. It had 8k miles and the previous owner had custom ordered it used it for 6 months then turned around and traded it in for same thing but 2500 with a Duramax. This is its journey....
The truck also did really impressive burnouts for being completely stock, this one was into 3rd gear
A few months after I bought it I started with upgrades. First was a rolling tonneau cover. Didn’t love it but it worked. I wanted more power from it and chose a set of Doug Thorley tri-y headers and catless y pipe.
Had a little issue with y pipe
not being the right size for 6.2s catback, welded factory flange onto the y pipe and it works great! Plus they look sweet!
At the same time as this I also bought a Diablo inTune, it paired alright with the headers but didn’t have the parameters in it to tune out cats so I had to have someone do that for me. The truck did have some pretty amazing fuel economy though. This tank was hand calculated 24.5!!
I drove the truck like this for a couple years
but did a few minor things, one was an MIT tube and the other a custom tune from DiabLew. Trans tuning was biggest improvement by Lew.
I tow a 21 ft bay boat with 1500 sierra and need to add rear suspension kit / support to keep the rear end of the truck from squatting down.
what is available that will not void any GMC warranties, etc?
I have a 2019 Silverado LT RWD. Put on a 2in rough country level kit with 295/60/20 Nitro Terra Grappler G2 on the stock rims. There is no rub at all! All clear pulling in and out of the driveway and at full lock! It was close at discount tire when they did the test fit but it worked. The only issue I have is after my alignment my steering wheel is a little off center to the right. Not bad but annoying on a brand new truck. They realigned it 4 times and came close but no luck getting it exactly centered. I gave up. The truck drives straight though.
I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing. Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!
