Add rear rake after Fox 2.0 install.


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the Fox 2.0 full set from MRT and will be installing on my 2017 Silverado Z71 cc.  Planning on leaving it at the 2 inch mark but would like to also add 1-2 inchs in the back.  The Fox site says the rear 2.0's are good from 0-1 inch in lift so I'm not sure what size block to go with.  I had my eyes on the Motofab 2 inch blocks but what I don't know is if these are 2 inch blocks that replace the 1.25's on the truck now, raising it .75 inch or do they actually raise the rear a full 2 inches.  If that's the case, will the 2.0's in the rear be over extended?  Will a 1 inch lift block (again from MRT) raise the truck 1 inch above the stock 1.25 and be the preferred route to go?  Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Depends on how the company is advertising. Size of block vs size of lift over stock. My readylift blocks were advertised at 2” and actually measure 2.25”. Stock blocks are 1.25”

Thanks for the info, advertised as "lift" not block size so I'm assuming it's 2" lift.

      Who’s running these? Can’t find 1 review with the new Fox 2.0 front & rears installed on a ‘20 gmc or Sierra 1500.  Sick of waiting on Bilsteins so lkg to install on a ‘20 gmc 1500 SLT X31.

      Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE with the 3” front 2” rear MOTOFAB leveling kit. Currently have stock wheels/tires on it which are 255/70R17. Thinking about jumping up to 18” wheels instead but wanted to know how much of a difference the 17” to 18” jump would make in appearance. 
      I was able to find plenty of pictures with 18” wheels but are there any photos out there of leveled /lifted trucks with 17” rims?

      Hey Guys, I have been reading this forum for awhile and seen different answers. But I got a 2.5” Motofab top and bottom mount leveling kit (similar to RC 2.5”) installed on my 2017 GMC Sierra CC Z71 and I’m interested in larger tires and keeping my stock rims. I have read that larger tires might come in contact with the UCA. I’m interested in the Ridge Grappler or the Wildpeaks AT3w. I am wondering what size tires will fit with no rubbing or no contact with the UCA. Please inform. 
      Possibly looking at the following sizes:
      Just looking for the most bang for my buck.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hope you guys are doing well! 
      Found a lovely deal for a chevy 2016 - LT Z71 - V5.3
      This is my first truck and looking to lift it. found a good price for Rough Country lift kit - 3.5 inch
      BILSTEIN 5100: https://psp.ae/product/bilstein-performance-shocks-15/
      Rough Country KIT: https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-suspension-lift-kit-275-8.html
      Many people been complaining about how cheap the rough country shocks are, so I was thinking is it possible to install Bilstein 5100 shocks kit on this kit? or would they not fit into these?  
      This way I would lift the truck + level it + have some what better shocks
      I thought about selling the Rough Country shocks instead
      Your thought and experience are much appreciated!

      I’ve been looking thru forums for the last week and was just wondering if anyone is running a Motofab 3” front 2” rear lift/leveling kit with 35x12.50/20s... I’ve seen a few trucks with 35s but curious about how much trimming/ rubbing there is... I really want to run 35 toyo open country mts or something very similar... any help and pics would be greatly appreciated... I have a 2015 GMC Sierra SLT 4x4 crew cab, again thanks for any help or advice.
