    Like many others, I've done both in the past. I'm happy with stock.

    My Silverado is lowered, only 2" in the rear so it now sets "leveled" not lowered (slammed)! Ride quality is the same to me, it will never be like a sedan so I don't try to be like one. One thing I am careful about is to not have my exhaust tip hit curbs when I back up, I think it hits now but not sure.

    Anyhow, can we see some pictures of what happened to your stolen Silverado. And the story too
    Sorry it happened!

    All of the vehicles I own are stock, but I think both lifted and lower trucs look good. I guess it depends on the model and style of the truck that makes both look good

    The wifes HHR is lowered, my Suburban is stock, and my Long Haul Dually is lifted so I got all three areas covered.
    But in the end all that really matters is people with an interest in GM products, whether they be modified to show status a bone stock daily driver or somewhere in between getting together and exchanging ideas and interests.

    I am gonna lift mine soon. For me lifting it or lowering it or stock all depends on the vehicle. I wont lift a 2wd but I would lower it if I wanted a truck to just cruise in. I am gonna lift mine since its a 4wd and plan on lifting all the 4wd truck I get in the future. I would not lift or lower a vehicle if its sole purpose was for towing. Thats my opinion on the lft, stock, lowered topic.

    Just stopped past and saw your posting, mine is stock 4 wd, so I wouldn't lower it. In honesty it does depend upon the vehicle as well as the owner. I have seen lowered look fantastic and recieve awards at shows, and I have seen lifted do the same.

    As with all of life it comes down to personal preference !

    Default Short-sighted poll ! ? !

    Okay, from past posts, we know that Stephanie likes ground slammin' and has an attentive finger on the pulse of public opinion. Sadly, this poll is flawed since it makes the assumption that any changes will be made parallel. There are many other possibilities. I'm old enough to remember many fads in SoCal over the ages: Rear lowered, rear elevated, front lowered, front elevated, front elevated with rear lowered, rear elevated with front lowered, front and rear elevated, front and rear lowered, synchronized static adjustable (early low riders), dynamic syncro adjustable (hoppers), and dynamic fully adjustable (dancers). We don't live in a parallel world. Perhaps the poll needs an "other" option.

    What should I check?
    I leveled my old Burb to an even stance... Some shackles to eliminate the "butt in the air" factory attitude. I don't think of it as being lowered nor stock. Perhaps it could be called "corrected" stock.
    Are we having fun, yet?

    I've considered leveling my front end with a ReadyLift kit, but I probably won't end up doing it. Since I don't need or want larger tires, it would just be for looks, so I'll put that money toward performance.

    I was going to lower mine but I use it as a hauler so much it just wasn't as much of a toy as I wanted it to be.
