Thread: Lift + Tires??

  1. #1

    Default Lift + Tires??

    Hey guys,

    i just picked up a 2009 silverado 1500 crew cab z71 LT all stock. i am looking to lift it a little to give it a more beefy look. although, i would prefer not to spend a ton.

    whats your take on a leveling kit?
    i looked at some rough country suspension and leveling kits.
    i was thinking moto metal rims and KO all terrain tires.

    any thoughts?

    The RC kit seems to be a no brainer for the price, but if you want to spend a little more you can get a leveling kit that comes with all new struts from Rancho or Superlift. They run about 250 bucks, but will enhance your ride.

    BFG AT are great tires, I recommend them all the time.

    Moto Metal rims are great to, what model were you thinking?

    Did you have to get an alignment after you put the leveling kid on? I really want to do this but Dont want to through off the front end geometry.
