Thread: lift questions

    Default lift questions

    I just bought a 09' 1500 and I'm debating whether to put on a suspension lift or body lift and of course bigger tires to go with it. What would be better?

    suspension lift is always better, but more expensive. depends on how big of tires you wnat on it.
    1997 K1500 Silverado 4X4. Black Exterior, grey/black interior. 35X12.50X15 wheels and rubber, ProComp 6inch lift 6 shocks in the front 2 in the rear, 3 inch body lift, a few cosmetic mods. Nothing major. Custom leather interior, and stereo upgrade is the future mods.

    Welcome to the club!

    Regardless of which one you go with, you are going to void some of the factory warranty with either. Suspension lifts are much more reliable, not to say that they can't fail either!
