Lower control arm

I messed up and ordered a rc 3.5 kit for a silverado with aluminum lower control arms what's the difference between the two and why wouldn't the kit I ordered work with my steel ones?

Sway bar on 4wd Silverado?

My 2000 Silverado had a lot of body sway going around turns. I took the old suspension off that had over 250k miles on it and I put new rough country suspension on (leveling kit) and that made it handle a lot nicer. However it still sways a lot and the only thing I can think of and that I read online is by adding a rear sway bar will help out a lot. I ...

Alignment after level kit, but before new wheels/tires?

Is that okay? I plan on putting the level kit on tonight and taking it for an alignment tomorrow. I won't have my new wheels/tires till end of the week. Mixed with my goofy schedule I can't do it any other day this week.

Is it fine if I don't do the alignment with the bigger tires?

Replace complete strut?

I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 CC Z71 with 164k miles and I plan to keep the truck for a while. One of the struts has a small leak so it's time to replace. I talked to a local shop and they recommended replacing the whole strut assembly since I plan to keep the truck for a while.

I had originally planned to replace with Bilstein when the time came but they do not ...

Question about rancho quick lift

Purchased the truck about 6-7 months ago. Noticed it was leveled, but the tires seemed to be too small. Looks like it was leveled with the rancho quick lift system (part number RS999785 pictured below). according to their site http://www.gorancho.com/products/leveli ... 99901.html , it'll clear 35" tires. Doesn't seem correct to me.

I was thinking LT285/70r17's BFG A/T KO2's would look good under there instead of the 265/70r17 nitto ...
