So I’ve got a 2015 GMC Sierra SLT, crew cab z71 on factory 20” rims on factory tires, all stock. I’m needing new tires and I wanted to go ahead and knock tires and lift out at the same time. I’m new to lifting as I’ve always driven 2wds. 
 
I want to make sure I don’t go too far and look obnoxious but I’d just like my truck to look “right”. I’m thinking somewhere around 3” with 33s but I’d be fine with 35s without lifting too high. I also definitely want the front leveled to the back no matter what I do. I don’t know the first thing about what I need to do. 
 

Mainly I’m just here for ideas and pictures of what you guys have done. Please provide whatever info you can.  Like I said, I just want it to look good and not be anything too crazy. I’d appreciate any feedback I can get, I need to get this done within the next few days. Absolutely no trimming

So if you could clarify, could you drop links to what parts you’ve got for your lift kit?

Like the lift itself and then the specifications for that lift? And then your rear lift blocks and your wheel spacers? Also would there be rubbing if I went with a 4.75in lift?

      Forgive me if this question has been discussed but I could not find anything with a search. 
       
      I have a 21 Trail Boss that I want to lift 4" for a total of 6" to fit 35's. I have been looking for awhile now at the available lifts specific to the Trail Boss and AT4 and have narrowed it down to two... 
       
      The BDS 1805H strut spacer lift with UCA's. 
      https://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=1805H
       
      And  
       
      Rough Country 27550 with their Vertex damping adjustable coilovers. 
      https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-suspension-lift-kit-27530c.html
       
      The cost of the kits are within a couple hundred dollars of each other. 
       
      I have watched all the reviews I could find on the Vertex coilovers and they seem to be good. I like the idea of them but I understand they can't be rebuilt so if they fail out of warranty I would have to replace them. Add to that the general sentiment that Rough Country in general isn't necessarily the greatest in terms of quality makes me very uncomfortable putting the kit on my truck. 
       
      BDS on the other hand has great reviews and a stellar warranty but I only get a strut spacer lift with new UCA's that retains the factory coilover with the Rancho shocks. 
       
      What are your thoughts, opinions and or experiences? Your input is much appreciated!

      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!

      Welcome to my build! 
       
      Started with a 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4wd 5.3L, which I bought with 9k miles on her in August of 2020. Got a crazy good deal on it, justified me driving to Georgia from Houston to pick it up. It even came with the Ranch Hand front bumper on it already, other than that she was stock. 
       
      Little bit of background on my past trucks, I've been fortunate to own quite a few: 07 JK Wrangler, 08 Silverado 1500 LT Z71, 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Z71, 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT w/ 6.2L, 2016 Denali 2500 Duramax, 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, and finally my 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71. I also have my 2015 ZL1 Camaro for a little bit of fun on the side, my wife has gone off to German side and is rocking her Porsche Cayenne. 
       
      So here's the current list of mods: 
      4" Zone Lift kit w/ Fox rear shocks  35x11.50's Nitto Terra Grapplers on stock 20's  Front and back Ranch Hand bumpers Hooker Blackheart Cat-back exhaust utilizing factory dual tips K&N Series 63 cold air intake  Rough Country Automatic drop down steps Camlocker Tool box Front windows tinted to match back factory tint  Front windshield tint strip  Chevy All-Weather floor liners Stubby antenna   
      Just went on a shopping spree of sorts and this is what I've got on order: 
      Boost auto parts auto fog mod Putco Blade LED Tailgate Light Bar w/ Putco wiring harness All LED bulbs; replacing turn signals, license plate lights, and reverse lights.  And the GRAND finale, King 2.5 PRS coilovers  
      The list of things to come in the near future: 
      High Country cluster from White Audio and Media, had their Tahoe cluster in my 2017 and it was fantastic!  Waiting to order the rear King Resi PRS shocks until my checkbook bounces back a little bit. Lol Going to be putting on several LED light bars and maybe a pod or two, going to do my best to blend them into the Ranch Hands and make them as non conspicuous as possible. I'm strongly considering doing a Dyno tune w/ Kooks long tubes as well. Going to be doing ceramic tint all the way around. Limo on back windows and back glass, 15% on front windows, and 35% on the front windshield.  I've got a drop in plastic bed liner that drives me crazy, so I'll more than likely go ahead and get the bed sprayed.   
      Things I'm considering: 
      Looking into changing up the rims and trying to clear 37's when the time comes for new tires.  Blacking out the badges? Still not sold on this one... Turbo or a supercharger kit? This one would be way down the line though. Anything else that catches my attention, let me know if you can come up with anything!   
      Here is the truck from stock:

      I need help please, I am trying to figure out what rear blocks to use with my 19 custom. Is there a difference between the 18 rear blocks and the 19?
