Should I lift the front more?

I'm planning on putting in new front strut assemblies on my truck in the next month or two. I currently have a RC 2" front level but I also put on an AAL in the rear so the truck still has the same rake, it's just 2 inches higher all the way around. I'm thinking about adding an .5" top spacer on to level it out a little more when I change the struts. I'm ...

Rough country kit question

The "2.5in GM Leveling Lift Kit (07-17 1500 PU)" will provide 2.5 " of lift in the front, and 1 extra inch in the back (due to the swap from 1 inch stock to 2 inch block. This will give the truck 1 inch of rake from the front to back?

Will running an aftermarket wheel with a negative offset allow me to fit bigger or smaller tires, than the stock wheels would (with the ...

Improving ride quality

Hey guys I have an 11 1500 z71 LT with the rough country 2.5" leveling kit in it. And while I love the look of it, it rides like crap. Which is to be expected with a cheap lift. But after 25k miles with the lift I'm either tired of the ride or its gotten worse. I'd like to take the lift out and put in the height adjustable Bilstein 5100s in hopes of helping ...

Is this right on shocks...

Bilsteins can give me 2 inches of front level, or if I add back shocks 2 extra inches of back lift , giving a 2 inch lift OR a combination of say 2 inch front and 1 inch back decreasing rake by an inch , and giving 1 inch total lift.

Ranchos will not give be total lift but will add 2 inches of level to the front?

Actual accounts of front end wear from Bilstein 5100s ?

I would like to level my truck and add 33s 33.5s or 34s

From what I understand the risk of premature wear with the leveling shocks is less than adding spacers. Correct?

Are there any accounts of this or is this theoretical?

Im probably going to buy extended warranty so worst care scenario if I had to do a full front end rebuild and my warranty was voided I would pay how much?

A more ...
