Hello all...
Just wondering if anyone has used the torklift upper bump stops on their 3500HD overload springs?
We tow a 4000kg caravan and it has about 400kg down weight on the hitch.
Cheers Danny

Adding Rake to 6 Inch Lift

I have a 2015 4WD Silverado 1500 with a Rough Country 6" knuckle lift kit. I want to add some rake back to the truck so I'm considering purchasing the rear blocks from Rough Country's 7.5" kit. Does anyone know if the 7.5" lift uses bigger blocks than the 6" kit? Or do the two kits use the same blocks with different rear shocks?

Mechanic doesnt understand Bilstein adjustable front strut

firestone airbags in action

Installed firestone airbags a couple of weeks ago. Today I had my first chance to put them to the test. I bought a ton of pellets at the lowes today and watched as the truck sunk down but this time I put 80 psi in the bags and up it went. Right back where it started from. It rode great. It worked great.

Does this 2015 1500 SLT Z71 have a lift??

Just picked up this 2015 Sierra 1500 SLT Z71 4x4 to replace my totaled 2014 Silverado 1500 LT Z71 2WD.

It sits up a lot higher than my last one. This 2015 has 20" rims with 285/55/r20 BFG All Terrain tires. My last truck had 18" rims with stock tires. It feels like ...
