    as written in the description are the happy owner of a 2002 silverado 2500HD LB7 diesel engine, 4x4.
    I would like to install a lift kit for 6 "and I want to understand what the best kits on the market. are still undecided whether to mount a full drop or a kit with bobbins, also because I have not yet understood well the merits of one and the other system.
    can you give me some advice?


    currently I mount the 285/75 r16 on original rims.
    you would put something like wheels and tires after the rise, as most kits do not fit the original rims? I was thinking of putting wheels Hummer H2 with 315/70 r17. What do you think?

    Can anyone with a 6" lift on a NNBS Silverado 1500 please tell me if your turning radius significantly decreased after the install? I have the Fabtech 6" lift and something that I never saw online or was told by any dealer when shopping for my kit is that the radius is pretty significantly decreased. I cannot make the turn in a cul-de-sac for example- I have to "three-point" it. Of course prior to the lift I could whip no problem in them. Is this all 6" lifts? I'd really like to hear from some Pro-Comp owners! Is this specific to my 35" tire size instead of the lift??

    I am on a Silverado 2500HD 2002 I installed a kit full of drop ProComp 6 "and the radius is decreased. pads in the kit are to be put in the a-arm to decrease the steering.

    Radius is decreased and of course having rims and tires that are wider than stock does not help any either.

    Hey guys, so I read most of the thread but must have missed my question. I have a 2010 ext cab with the Z85 suspension. I would like a bit of lift. 3-4" would be about right. I just want more ground clearance and a nice look. I don't want to be a monster truck and I need to be able to load it with wood and possibly tow a horse trailer soon( non 5th wheel).

    Any good choices? I wouldn't mind keeping my stock 17" rims right now and want some nice rubber , so would like to not break the bank if I can. I'm not a big fan of just adding blocks. Was looking at the 5100 blisteins , heard they'd add 2 inches? But wouldn't mind looking at a kit so I don't mess up any angles etc.
