2001 Z71 shock question

Whats up everyone, my first post here so I'm hoping some of you can help me out. I have a 2001 Silverado 1500 LS Z71. I just bought 4 new Monroe Reflex Monotube Shock Absorber 911501 for the front and 911502's for the rear.

Rough Country 3.5 Problems

Hey y'all,

Recently took my truck in for a routine oil change and alignment and got some news I really didn't want to hear. Firestone found that my tie rods need to be replaced on both sides along with the ball joints. Shocks are trash as well. They quoted around $1000 to fix it.

I feel like I am paying the price for getting the RC instead of a better lift from the start. I ...

1" Lift for front of stock 1500

I have a 2013 Silverado 1500 EC that is stock, I would like
to add a 1" lift in the front.

The reason I do not want a 2" level is because I want
it to be level when I am towing.

Do they sell kits to raise the front 1"?

Annoying Left Turn only Squeal

I have a 06 6 inch fabtech lift 35's with 118k that has recently developed a super annoying left turn metal on metal squeal. At first I thought brakes but I can't get it to do it unless I'm turning. Just braking while going straight is quiet.

If I turn left and hit the brakes it does it a bit louder than a left turn with no brakes. But hitting the brakes doesn't make it ...

Dual or mono tube shocks?

I'm installing an add-a-leaf to my truck and I thought while I'm in there and have things apart I would change my shocks as well since I have 93k on the clock. I understand that my truck comes stock with mono tube shocks but I was wondering if dual tube shocks would be an acceptable replacement? The dual tubes are less expensive. I don't need anything fancy. The truck actually rides just fine now and ...

Installed Bilstein 5100s this Weekend

The stock Ranchos on my 2010 Sierra were getting pretty tired at 80,000 miles. I also wanted a bit more clearance in the front end so I decided to upgrade to the 5100s. I purchased the set of 4 from amazon for about $360. Installed them myself in about 6 hours (I'm no mechanic, but I know how to take stuff apart and put it back together.) They were overdue.

Same amount of lift with stock keys then with aftermarket?

OKAY! I got in my ready lift level kit for my 06 Sierra. New keys and a shock bracket. Only issue is could I not get level with the stock keys? Have them cranked a little and have plenty of thread left with only 1 1/4in diffrent from front to rear? Was it a waist of money to get them considering I can do it stock? Or is thier something better about them? I need ...

Need some opinions on this

Ok so I've been wanting to lift my truck a little bit and would like some opinions on this kit. Right now I just have the stock keys cranked but I would like to do something like this. (It's not crazy expensive) I have also read some other topics on things similar to this but I would like some opinions. Has anybody with a 2500hd done this? I'd like to know what you think. Yes ...

Carrying capacity?

I have been kind of hard on my '02 sierra z71 slt 1500. I often overload it and would like something besides an airbag to do it. It currently has a 2" level kit I believe, and my wheels are stock 6.5" wide I believe and I am running 285 75/16


What are your thoughts? Extra spring? Do they make a kit for that?

Thank you kindly

Mike
