Tire Cupping and Suspension Drift

I bought a 2013 Silverado 4x4 w/53K last March. I had the dealer realign the front suspension because it pulled to the right consistently. They brought it within spec but it still drifted right though not nearly as badly. I brought it back and they rechecked it and claimed still within spec so must be the tires which they estimated had about 15K miles left on them. The problem has gradually gotten worse with 56,500 ...

I got to talking to the sales guy about my plans with the 2" level and 1.5" body lift, He told me that the way the truck is setup, if I run a body lift it would kill the factory ride. He explained that the factory body mounts are a rubber material and the body lift would replace with a harder material ...

Installed RC 2" level last night

I got my RC 2" level in like two weeks ago and just haven't had much time to install it. After dinner last night I decided I would toss it in, figuring it would only take 1-2 hrs doing it solo based on what I was seeing online. I started with the Driver's side and I followed the directions from RC. It took almost 2.5 hrs to do the one side. It was ridiculous. The ...

Can anyone explain to me how I can tell the difference between if I have a regular front and rear suspension or an electronic one? It's a matter of 30 bucks a shock or 248 bucks. Oh please let me have the first. Thanks.

2016 Sierra w/ Stamped Steel Control Arms - What Lift?

So I just bought a 2016 Sierra SLT Z71 and was wanting to put a RC 2.5" leveling kit on it so I can run bigger tires. I just got done talking to RC about this and they said I cannot run the 2.5" kit because the top .5" strut spacer would make the strut rub on the upper control arm.

Does anyone know a leveling kit that will raise it 2.5" in the front ...
