ADVICE: Installing RC 2.5" on 14

As the title says, I'm installing the RC 2.5" on my 14 Silverado this week. Before I drive to the auto hobby shop on base I was wondering if anyone could offer any helpful advice/lessons learned from installing this kit on their trucks. Thanks!

2016 RC 3.5in

Creeping on a 2016 at work. Local 4x4 shop loves selling this set up to the gas field workers. It is a RC3.5in kit with UCAs and 295/60/20s. (33.9x11.6) With a close to 0 offset wheel. As you can see it indeed rubs the UCA, and rubs front and rear inner fenders. Plus the obvious lack of down travel, and lovely CV angles (which already has a torn CV boot on a brand new truck). ...

Low Speed ABS Lock-Up Low Speed ABS Lock-Up

Hey all, new here, but not too new to forums. I have been digging around on an issue that has me stumped a bit, so I thought I would reach out here.

Working on my dad's 2003 Silverado 1500 with the 4.8, ABS, manual everything. When slowing down around 2-3 mph the left front tire will start acting like ABS is engaging. I know it's this tire because it's beginning to wear on the outside ...

Help Diagnose Which Leveling Kit

Bought this truck a month ago. I'm guessing it has a leveling kit by the way it sits. I want to take it off because I'm not a fan of leveled trucks but not sure what kind of kit it has. I don't believe it has a bottom strut spacer but I can't tell if there is any kind of spacer on top either. ImageImageImage

2000 Z85 Shock Opinions

Need to replace the shocks on the truck, I suspect it still has the original shocks after 200k miles! Digging around, the truck came with the Z85 package, and I'd like to restore to the "original" suspension, if not upgrade a bit. I will not be lowering or lifting, so I'm looking for a good replacement.

Right now, I'm looking on Rock Auto, and they have the Gabriel Max Control, KYB Monomax, and AC Delco ...

So this is what I'm replacing on my truck: UCAs, LCAs, inner and outer tie rods, coil springs/seats and a 1.5" RC spacer. So far today I've gotten the driver side completely disassembled.
