Was wondering if it was ok to put a strut spacer on top of a loaded strut. I have 2016 z71 and put a 2inch level load strut on truck. I am looking to maybe go a little higher. Would like to do 3 in front and 1 inch in back. Can I add a 1inch spacer to front? Also should I get an aftermarket control arm if am going to 3 inches?

2 inch spacers front.
ordered -38 mm offset wheels
pre runner front bumper trimmed inner fender to metal line
just ordered a 3 inch rear block lift with new shocks.
should be able to pull it off. May throw on a 1.5 inch body lift.
not sure how I feel about the NorCal mod.

Hopefully they fit. 2 inch leveling kit up front. Pre runner bumper. Rears stock. Got -38 mm wheels coming in. 17x9. Shipped today.
should look good. 🤞
much debated topic I didn’t see anything on the size either.
I’ll be that guy. It should fit nicely I’m thinking.
It’s a 33.8x12.2r17 ordered today. 11/2

Correct me if I’m wrong.
I have a 2016 Silverado 1500
they can fit 33x11.5 factory.
Negative Offset in a wheel pulls the wheel out from the inside of the wheel well.
so if I have say a -24 mm offset wheel I can accommodate a wider tire.
I have mixed reviews on largest tire size. I only have the front leveled 2 in.
I just ordered a set of 5 pro comp wheels with -38 mm offset. Could pull the wheel out 1.5 inches.
im looking for tires. I wanna run a 305 70 r17
this should fit with no rubbing?
I forgot to mention I have a barricade pre runner front bumper with skids.
just looking for some reassurance on that tire size before I order. Looking to order on Thursday.

Quite a while ago, I bought a set of factory 18" rims from a midnight edition HD. I was planning to run 35x12.50x18's, but tire prices went up and some tires became hard to find. Finally, I found a good deal at my local tire shop on a set of Sumitomo Encounter AT's in 325/65/18. For those that don’t know, Falken tires are made by Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. The Sumitomo Encounter AT has a lot of similarities to the Falken Wildpeak AT3W, which I ran previously and was very pleased with. The Encounter AT is a fairly aggressive all-terrain, with a 60,000 mile warranty and the 3PMS rating. The tread depth in my size is 20/32, which is about the deepest you’ll find in an all-terrain. The 325/65/18 has an overall diameter of 34.7” and a section width of 13.3”. They look huge compared to my old 285/75/17’s.
My suspension is completely stock, except for a 1.5" crank (7-8 turns) on the torsion bars and shock extensions. Much to my surprise (and delight), the 325/65/18’s fit without any additional modifications. They’re really tight, but they clear. They barely rub the frame at full lock, but I'm not worried about that. I’ll probably pull back my fender liners with zip ties, for extra peace of mind. They're very close when hitting a bump while turning. They look like they belong on the truck, and I’m quite happy with them. These trucks have a very blocky/wide body style, and a bigger tire helps fill the wheel wells and improve the overall look.
Here's a few pictures...
