Please Help 1999 Sierra 2wd 4in blocks... What rear shocks?

So I bought a 2in leveling kit and 3in spindles for the Sierra. I have the 4in blocks and u bolts for the rear but haven't done it yet because I can't seem to fight what shocks I need allow proper movement. I've searched countless places and can't seem to find 4in shock model numbers. Can you supply me with rancho 4in lift shock model number. Thanks.

Size of Lift question

I am currently in the market for new tires/wheels and my friend actually has a set he may sell. He has a set of 18in fuel boost wheels with 33in by 11.5in tires on them. He is currently running a 3.5in lift on his truck and I was wondering if I could get away with just a 2.5in leveling kit without having to do a bunch of trimming.

Sorry if this should have been in ...

Drop it

Well after a quick survey of this section lowering a truck isn't that popular here. Here's my question/dilemma. Initially I was going to just lower the rear 2 inches to level the ride height and hoping to maintain my ability to tow with the truck, but after some research it seems that my best option is a 2/4 drop with a flip kit, "c" notch and either air bag or air shocks. Seems this will ...

Loose Steering NBS

Over the weekend I had a new steering gear box put in due to the other one leaking. My mechanic also replaced the pitman arm as he noticed the boot had been cut when the previous owner put on a steering box. When I got it back I noticed the steering to be a little looser than when I took it to him. Not a ton but enough to notice.

I'm going to break off ...

Hi all, I've only been on this forum for a short time, but have already gained a wealth of ideas and knowledge. Getting parts together to lower my 2013 silverado 2 wheel drive 2" front 3"rear. I will use McGaughys 2"lowering spindles up front, lowering shackles/remove block in rear. I'm trying to decide if I will need shorter rear shocks? I've searched on this forum and it seems about half have changed to shorter shocks. ...

2006 Sierra leaf spring replacement 2006 Sierra leaf spring replacement

I recently installed a RC 2/2.5" leveling kit, with new torsion keys, blocks, shocks, etc. I also replaced my leaf springs in the process. They were flatened out - I believe it was overloaded at some point before I bought the truck.

I replaced the stock leaf springs with 4/1 leafs from SDTruckSprings.com (http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/chevy-silverado-1999-2010-leaf-spring-22-1269)

My question is, did these new heavier duty leaf springs increase my payload or towing capacity in any way?

Thank you ...
