Chimpo’s 14 Silverado z71

Postby JonChimpo [OP] » Jan 21 2021, 8:05pm

Hey all,

I ended up going with a Rough Country 3.5” UCA/spacer lift. After reading all the + - I rolled the dice. It’s a great kit after a week. Time will tell, but I think the haters are just haters. Got an alignment right after as well. Tires are 285/65/18. I’m waiting on 1/4” spacers due to very slight UCA rub at full turn. I bought 1/2” spacers, but they didn’t leave me enough thread engaged on my lug nut for comfort.
Although I did have to replace my front strut/coil assembly due to an unknown Bilstein 5100. Strange, but no one carries in stock Bilsteins.. I was over a barrel, and had to buy 2 full Napa coil overs.. it was that or stay up for 72hrs straight and guard my garage with a truck sticking halfway out until new shocks could come in.

Swapped in a new Battery as well.

Aren’t haters. Some just have a different opinion as to what a good riding truck feels like.

can’t argue with geometry.

But As long as you’re happy with it.

My truck rides stellar after the lift, zero complaints so far.

And that’s the differing opinion.
