Chevy passed out a 2019 Silverado information book to journalists during this week's media drive. I'm working on scanning the entire thing and sharing it here.
There's a lot of information packed into this flip book. I thought the most interesting was the engine line up and an AFM vs DFM diagram. This is the best comparison blowout diagram I've seen so far. Here's the four pages related to the engines.
So I have been looking around for a level kit I think I want to go with a 2inch level on the front.
But I'm not too sure on what one to get?
I have seen the rough country one for a reasonable price. I was also looking at motofab.
Is there any others that I should consider? Also with a level kit void a factory warranty? Post some photos of your level lift! Or give me some input on things to be aware about.
Good morning everyone,
I recently purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain package. I'm personally wanting to install a leveling kit and I believe I've selected one. I've read a lot about leveling kits for 2017-18 trucks and this seems like a great kit. However, there isn't many reviews on this product by ReadyLift. The appeal of this lift is the UCA replacements and the <2" height it allows. I'm wanting to go with 305/55/20 or 285/60/20 tires with my stock AT wheels and I want as much clearance possible. I found maybe 2-3 members on here with this lift and I'll quote them below. My question is, will this work with my All-Terrain package? In the description of the kit it states, "Will not work on Z71 packaged vehicles with factory Rancho® struts." Yet on ReadyLift's website, there is nothing supporting that statement. Does anyone have any information or review for this kit? Thanks!
Pros and cons of a grill guard vs an aftermarket steel bumper with a grill guard built into it? Let's assume for the sake of argument that price is not an issue. These are some of the questions I'm considering:
Profile - I would think that an aftermarket bumper with grill guard built to it would save a few inches over something that goes around the front bumper.
Winch mount - which one works easier with a winch. Do either require that I mount a winch first, or could I add one later without taking it all apart again.
Airbag deployment - Is there an effect? I don't really know if airbags are deployed with a compression switch or an inertia switch.
Sexiness - What do you think looks better?
In regards to leveling these new GMCs (mine: 2018) is there a definitive answer on what the issues are? And specifically how to avoid the issue? I have fine tooth combed every forum possible and it’s like throwing darts drunk.
I've heard it'll blow out the ball joints, the electronic steering gear, tie rod ends, etc.
I've heard don't go over 1.75", don't go over 2.5", and even 2.25" is the limit before you'll have issues.
I've heard it's from installation errors... Like no support under control arm when you knock the knuckle to separate the ball joint and the sudden drop/slack causes damage. I've heard if you don't disconnect the electronic power steering harnesses or battery the shock from separating the ball joint can cause a spark that damages the EPS.
I've talked to multiple 4x4 shops that install these and most say they've done hundreds/thousands with no issues, which of course I doubt. It's just too widespread of an issue.
So does anyone know the secret recipe to a level kit that won't screw up the front end on these new GMCs? Is there anyone out there that's put a substantial amount of miles (25k or more) with their level kit with out the clicking, popping, etc?
Sorry to beat a dead horse.
