I've been experiencing a issue involving height related to torsion bars on my 1999 GMC Sierra. I am having trouble determining if it is the driver side torsion bar, or perhaps the driver side lower control arm being worn where the torsion bars sits in it. This issue is non-existent on the passenger side. On the driver side, I removed the torsion bar for some other work I was doing and when I re-installed it in the lower control arm, I noticed the keys were positioned differently literally every way I turned the bar or tilted the lower control arm on the driver side. The keys are the same but on the driver side the torsion key seems to sit lower than the passenger side when installing it making the driver side higher which in turn makes the lower control arm sit lower. This is causing far too much camber on the driver side making turn radius on that side a little sketchy. It is also making my lower control arm make contact with the steering knuckle. The ball joints are all new. Could this be a worn lower control arm, or possibly the torsion bar on the driver side alone? Is there a fix to correct the issue? If anyone has experienced this or can make better sense of it please let me know!

I have a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 4WD and I would like to install some Timbren bumper stops. On their website there are 3 different kits for the rear:
1. Regular Suspension
2. Magnetic Ride suspension and,
3. Adaptive Suspension
I came across an article stating that the my truck has the Magnetic Ride suspension but I need someone to confirm the fact. Also if anyone else installed these kind of bumpers can you please share the part number that would fit to this specific model of GMC?
Looking for some information, I bought a 2004 2500hd 6.0l and wanting to clean it up, new fluids, ignition stuff, shocks and a few others. I started looking into shocks and bilsteins which led me to trying to figure out if any modifications to the level of my truck has been done. its a 2wd and already sits fairly level, I haven't actually measured it but just looking it its not far off. The keys look to be untouched so I don't think they leveled it that way, one question I did have is the rear shackles. It has them, did they come stock with shackles??? Any other way besides jacking up the front with torsion bars or lowering with shackles that leveling can be done?
What's up everyone, I am new to the truck scene and in need of some help. I own a 2015 Silverado LT / RWD and have plans to make it into a somewhat of a pre runner. The question I have is, I am looking for some good suspension to be able to fit some 37" tires. I am currently running Pro Comp 8" lift kit (not too specific as truck came that way) but I am looking for something better as the ride is to stiff for my liking and also looking for something lower for that pre-runner look.
Thanks and hopefully I can get some help from you veterans!
