SO..... Anyone install a lift kit yet? Pictures Please

Recommended Posts

Thanks.  Looks nice!  I'm going to call Les Schwab and have them install it.  I think that a 2 inch level kit should lift more than 1.25 inches.

Are you running any spacers? 

 

Any rubbing?

No spacers.

There was a good deal of rubbing, and significant trimming required. The installer said it wasn’t difficult though, and that it may have been less with different tires.

Looks awesome!
No wheel spacers needed to retain the stock wheels

I want to go with some 20x9 with +0 offset but will probably have to trim more of the wheel wells.

For all you DIY guys, where did you place your jack points? Pictures would help. I see the circular plates and read through the manual but its just side by side. Using a standard floor jack and research, not sure without an adapter, I can't seem to figure it out without trial and error on my new truck 😂

I wish someone would make a DIY video for a 4” or below.

Haha right!? I know what you mean.

UCA’s are not required at all, honestly for my purpose it’s purely aesthetics haha. The only off-road a little trail here and there driving up to the mountain or going camping etc, very tame!

But damn it looks good ha!

Awesome set up and this is what I’m looking to add to my truck. Any idea if you can run a stock wheel with 35’s with your current set up? I came across a killer deal on 295/65/20’s and would like to try and save a few bucks by running the stock wheels for a bit.

Hey man thanks!

If I recall I think what would hold you back, with my exact setup, would be the 6” BDS Kit, I don’t remember if you can run the stock wheel with it, but I could be wrong, definitely check with them!

This is from BDS’s site:


35"x12.50" w/20x9 (Chevy) and 4.5"-5" back spacing
35"x12.50" w/20x9 (GMC) and 5.5"-6.25" back spacing

I have 20x10 wheels with the right back spacing, others have 20x12 working.

Let me know if I can help with anything else and good luck!

You’re the man thank you! Gonna go for a sleek stock look with extra height and a whole lot of extra performance for now. New wheels and tires in the spring. Thank you!

      Hey guys!
      I have a 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD WT 4X4. I am looking at installing a 3.5" rough country suspension lift on my truck and I have read mixed reviews. If anyone with a similar truck preferably an HD that is running this specific lift or knows someone who is could just tell me whether or not its worth the 600$ and if its something I should pursue.

      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.

      Im currently thinking on which lift i wanna get im definitely going with a bds 4 inch lift kit On my 2018 1500 . But whats the difference in ride quality between the normal one Which includes a whole new strut between the more expensive one which has fox coilovers and shocks?? and have any of yall ran either one and how did it feel?? Also can i fit 22x12s in a 4 inch ???

      Hey folks, brand new to this forum so forgive me as I am sure I'm asking something that has been asked before.  I am on my third Silverado, and for the first time I'm getting in to mods. I'm stuck on lifts right now. I really want a BDS 4 or 6 inch coilover kit, but I'm hesitant about the price, and not sure if keeping my 18x9's with 33's on the six inch kit will make my truck look like it skipped leg day. Meanwhile in searching for alternatives I'm noticing that, unless you intend to get a waiver from the FAA for occupying dedicated airspace, you don't get many of the same options on other kits from rancho, superlift, procomp, trail master etc. as you would from BDS... can anyone provide some feedback or guidance on a good direction to go? I know BDS it top of the line, and ride height and ride quality are extremely important to me. Truck rides like a dream now, I'm willing to sacrifice a little,  but I don't want to eff up my truck with a cheap lift. Any help is greatly appreciated.

      So I was wondering what is the best quality lift for the money under $2000 for my 2018 silverado since i plan on buying it at the end of my lease and i always plan way tooooo far in advance for things like this. So here is my idea. I have dropstar 655bm 20X10 -25 offset on 33x12.5 toyo RTs on my truck leveled 2 inches at the moment but as soon as i fully purchase the truck i want to fit 37s. Although the 8 inch BDS and SuperLift say they can fit only 35s ive seen plenty of guys running 14 wide -72 offset on 35x15.5 tires on a 8 inch lift and fit so why cant i get a 37x12.5 on my 10 wide. So what lift would you guys go with in my situation. Im mainly looking at the mcgaughys 7-9, BDS 8inch, Superlift 8 inch. What one do yall think is gonna be my best bet. Thank You.
