2016 gmc sierra z71 rancho shocks front end bounce

I have a 2016 GMC Sierra z71 4wd - it came with the rancho shocks. When I hit a bump on the road the recoil from the front shocks is super bouncy, as in hit your head on the roof bouncy. I have had this issue ever since I bought the truck new. Any one else have his issue or have any suggestions? I previously had a z71 Tahoe and the rides aren't even comparable. ...

14+ with leveling kit

Hey guys, I picked up my 17 Sierra in January and I want to do a leveling kit on it. Nothing crazy since I've put 10k on the damn thing since I got it. Anyway i know with the older generation they had issues with ball joints with even the slightest angle change, so How are the new generation holding up? A 2" and 33s sooner or later is all I want to do. So ...

What lift to buy?

I am planning (been planning) on lifting my truck enough to fit 35's.

I was planning on going with a McGaughy's 7-9 inch because I like the extra space in the wheel well. But, as with all good things they is always a bad review and it made me second guess my purchase.

My budget is 2,000 for lift no more than that.

What do you guys suggest?

I need an aal kit to level out my lift kit at 9". I see a wide range in pricing.

Is the steel better in some? Do they all give the same amount of lift?

I want good quality but don't want to spend $150 on a set from Mcguaphys if a $50 set from Zone is going to give me the same lift and be just as good! Money isn't an issue as I'll ...

Bilsteins and level kit

I know your not really supposed to use the 5100's with a level kit when the shocks are adjusted for lift. However I'm wondering if I could move the Bilsteins to stock height and install a 2.5" level kit. Would it ride better then say a Z71 with the stock Ranchos and a 2.5" level? The reason behind this is the Bilsteins only lift about 1.5- 1.75" and I want it a little higher without ...

Will 285/75r16 fit on my truck without rubbing?

I am new to this site and to upgrading trucks. Anything helps. I have a 2009 Crew Cab Chevy Silverado 2500hd. Currently, it has the stock tires and wheels on it (245/75/r16 and 16x6.5). The tires look small, and I'm looking for something bigger. I was wondering if I could fit 285/75/r16 tires on a 16x8 wheel with a 2" Rough Country leveling kit without too much trimming or any at all. Helpful comments only ...

14 Silverado lift 14 Silverado lift

My question is has anyone installed this lift themselves and how much of a pain in the ass is it. I use to be a mechanic and have access to a lift and air compressor. My question is how long did it take their book that came with the kit says 8 to 10 hrs install time I don't think it could be that long. I have a local shop that was gonna do it ...

That can't be good!

I don't know if a thread like this exists. One exclusively for bad lifts. I did try to search to no avail. I thought there was one, but can't remember and cannot find. Apologies if I missed something. I come across trucks all the time with lifts that are killing suspension components. Or are just not done right. I will start with this poor truck I found at Lowe's. One pic didn't come out right. ...

Bilstein 5100 with Rough Country 1/2" Top Spacer? Bilstein 5100 with Rough Country 1/2" Top Spacer?

I simply cannot find the answer to this question. Looking to replace shocks/struts on all four corners of my '14 Silverado 1500 non Z71 but 4x4. I currently have the rough country 2.5 inch lift level with the 1" rear blocks installed. I like the way the truck sits as it is right now, still has a little bit of rake but overall stands higher. Sits just about level with a trailer or boat hooked ...
