lift install in connecticut (06030 +- 50mls)

Postby helge [OP] » Mar 20 2017, 9:30pm

Hey guys,

can you recommend a shop in Connecticut (06032 +- 50mls) which installs a lift kit for a nice price? Either I bring the lift kit or they sell it. I'd like to go for 6" Rough Country.
Let me know, if you know someone.

Or is there anyone here, who want's to help me installing a lift kit?

Thanks :)

He is a great guy! We had a blast talking about trucks :D
I decided to install just a leveling kit at my current truck, cause I'll go for a newer model in 2 years properly.

NorCal mod is something you can do yourself. Not worth paying someone to cut a little plastic and bank some metal.

What tire/wheel combo are you going with that requires a NorCal?

I'm trying to fit 20x12 -44 offset.
I don't want a bigger tire, id like to stick with 55
Something like 305 55 20?

Currently I fit stock 275 55 20 +31 offset with 2" spacer (makes -29) without rubbing.

Meens I need around 1,8 inch more space to fit -44.

NorCal should do that?

heige, I believe you are misunderstanding a concept here. A 305/55 is considerably taller and wider than a 275/55. Also, a x12 wheel cannot be compared to a x8.5 when it comes to clearance. You will also have to figure in the extra wheel width.

There is no "should" with the NorCal option. You will HAVE to with that wheel and tire setup.
