Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 2005 GMC Sierra and i am stuck between what lift kit to use i have been asking around for information but when i call i talk to people that are usually working for that specific lift kit company or just someone trying to push a certain kit on me. I want a 6" to fit 35 BF Muds. I am stuck between the FABTECH : PRO-COMP : RCD if any one has a 2004 or newer can you please give me some valuable info or if some knows a lot about lift kits can you please help me i paid a pretty penny for the truck and i want to make sure the lift is put in right and i have a good quality lift. Thanks again. :ughdance:

I would go with RCD, they use a drop spindle to get the lift you need which leaves the UCA in the stock position and also keeps the stock steering geometry as well. You also do not have to change your front driveshaft on their kit. I have the RCD on my 02 Sub and I am very impressed with the design and the engineering of the kit. I shopped a long time for a lift kit and decided on the RCD for the reasons stated above.Check out Rocky Mountain Suspension(www.rockymountainsusp.com).They sell quite a few of the popular kits so they do not tend to be biased toward any one brand. You can also check out (http://liftkit.net).They also have some good info on lift kits. Hope this helps. :(:lol:

I am kind of in the same boat too ... except which kit would work best on a 2500HD Crew Cab 4X4 - I need to clear 35s:

 

RCD or CST

 

 

 

 

My RCD kit had no problems clearing 35s, all you have to do is trim a little off the lower front valance. I used 33s on my Burb because I couldn't fit in the garage with 35s. If you plan on going with 35s I hope you have at least a 4.10 axle ratio because if you have less you will notice slower starts from a dead stop and the truck will be a bit of a dog in the city, unless you have a lot of horsepower. :cheers:

Not a big difference between those 2 kits. Both very good Both have great reviews. That said I have a Pro Comp on a 1500 so I can't really offer much advice.
