305? Are they 33 or 35 /12.50? Do they rub and/or have spacers? Looks great!


I just took off a set of 305/45r22’s and replace with stock tires and 20’s. 305’s rubbed sway bar at full lock and especially in reverse.

Looks great man. Gonna show this set up to a buddy of mine. We'll just finish installing the skid plate and gibson exhaust on his Wrangler project and we'll start planning the lift for his Silverado. Readylift seems a great choice.

Thanks man! So far I really like this setup, rides really well and gives the truck just the look I was going for, and it gets rid of the stamped steel upper control arms.

Sharp truck!  Curious if you put any lift blocks or add a leafs in the rear?  From the pic, it looks like a slight rake, which I like.

No sir, haven’t installed anything in the back, the picture I posted is a bit deceiving because of the angle. From the measurements I took the truck actually sits dead-nut level, and a 6ft level confirms that in multiple positions on the truck. I haven’t towed a trailer with it yet, but worry that it will be nose high with a heavy load. I am considering adding a block to get a small 3/4 - 1” rake out of it, hoping that will be enough to be level when towing.

I really like how the ride changed over stock with this system, takes bumps and washboard dirt roads much better, no more wincing going over that type of stuff, you still feel it, but the shock/spring system seems to damper the driver felt impact.

Thanks for the info!  Been really looking hard into that Eibach kit.  Between that one and the Halo Boss Kit for me right now.  Sure do like the price point on the Eibachs as compared to the Halos though.  Just wondering if the Eibach kit would be too hard of a ride.  I do a lot of highway miles and off road/farm riding as well.   Trying to find the right balance.

Installed Daystar Urethane leveling spacers this morning. I didn’t want aluminum spacers as I’ve read about creeking during turns. One of the local 4x4 shops here only installs the urethane spacers because they “just don’t get any returning customer issues when they use them”. The kit was $60 and I had all the tools already (much to my dismay)..

 

The kit requires cutting the factory studs and threading on stud extensions.. (locktite, washers, new nuts) everything needed for the install is included.

I am glad to see someone else with the factory 17's  I have the same rims and will eventually go with the same tire size from my 265/70/17.  I like more rubber!  :)  I'm not into the skinny tire revolution.
