I have a rough country full leveling kit(torsion bar keys, shock extensions, 2 inch blocks) on my 2004 extended cab silverado z71. The height of my truck is perfect for me( 6 inch lift is a little too much and I'm not a fan of body lifts). I wear out ball joints too fast and now starting to wear out cv axles. Is there any way to use 2500 ball joints or something stronger? Or ...

'04 Texas Edition Silverado - Suspension

Hey guys. I have recently purchased an '04 Texas Edition Silverado. I have searched high and low for information regarding this package on this year truck. It is a Regular Cab Step Side and it had all the Texas Edition badges. I did find a picture of one on Google, but nothing that describes what came with the package. I understand it is mostly an appearance package, but I start wondering if there was a ...

Tire and wheel options

I am putting a 2" leveling kit on my 2014 1/2 ton. I have factory 20" rims and was wandering what would be the best tire size to go with. I have also kicked around going with 18's because I eventually want to get a 4-6" lift kit. If I went with 18's I would go ahead and get them with the backspacing for the lift. What would be the best tire size with the ...

Making a 1/2 Ton Into a 1 Ton

So I bought a 1987 Sierra 1/2 ton, true 4x4, 454, 4 speed trans, short bed, awesome, amazing, perfect for me truck. After the honeymoon period wore off, I noticed that my rear leaf springs were missing a clamp and had started to slide out and the rest of my suspension was barely holding on. What started as a typical old truck rough ride has turned into a dangerous feat on the expressway.

My immediate ...

Suspension lift with stock wheels

Hi guys, new to this forum. Figure you all know a lot more about this stuff than I do. Hoping to get some good advise here. I have a new 2014 Sierra all terrain. It came with these really nice looking 20" machine wheels. I want to put on a 4" BDS lift (don't want to do 6" cause I got a 5 year old that I will have to hoist in). I'm told my ...

American Luxury Coach (ALC) Z92 Lift

Just bought a 2010 Silverado with this Z92 ALC 6" lift; wasn't what I really wanted, but couldn't pass up the deal. It's a FABTECH lift; can this be removed or at least lowered some? The mileage and feel of "strain" are bothering me; I know...I should just be happy.

Bilstein reservoir billet mount

My shocks are shot on the front of my '00 siverado and I'm thinking of putting a set of bilstein 5160's on. We use the truck off road and towing - I like the looks too. I'm just trying to understand why that billet mount for the reservoir is almost $50 a piece. Idk if I'm going to buy the shocks because of it - I know I don't have to use them but that ...
