    Another factor when it comes to the ride of a lifted truck is the tire pressure. If the ride is to harsh you could drop the tire pressure a few pounds and it will soften the ride some. The bigger tires with higher pressure can equal a rougher ride.

    I was wondering what the best way to keep my factory rake look while going higher was? I thinking of just cranking the stock keys and throwin on 3 inch blocks. would those make my rig look like a drag car?lol

    I am looking at the rough country leveling kit, and I read in the manual that you have to check all fasteners every 1000 miles. Is this really necessary, as I am assuming it would be quite a hassel?

    I guess that would work. Unless you tow a lot, why on earth would you want to keep the rake??

    Legal disclaimer to cover their ass. I would definetly check it after the first 500 to 1000 miles. After that just check it every so often, like when your doing routine maintenance on it.

    I just prefer how it looks. Especially with a trailer or load in the back, if it was level itd have a lean to it, and that just bugs me to no end.

    I kept a 1" rake in the back by replacing the 1" block with a 2" block.I used Bilstein leveling shocks for the 2" i gained in the front.

    do you know if fender trimming and wheel offsets would be enough to run 35s on a leveled 98 silverado?
