    Question 2003 Chevy Silverado Regular Cab LS

    I am looking to put a 2" lift on my truck for the front... I found a 2" spacer to put on top of the coils and then I also found a coil that is 2" bigger and supposadly lifts the truck that way (no spacer) and is cheaper. What route would you all take? What route have most taken? Any advice?

    i know the spacer is popular. havent heard much of the larger coil but sounds like it should work well.

    I kinda like the coil idea. Its probably a stronger coil for one and you could also upgrade shocks while your at it if you want. Also rancho makes a 4'' lift using coils and shocks

    Hi Elg, welcome to the GM Truck Club.

    Most people go with the spacer but I agree with the others that the new coil is the way to go. It will give you a better ride quality because a spacer crams the stock spring into a smaller space and increases the spring rate which makes it ride rougher.

    edit*** Hey ELG, what company carries those springs? I would like to see if they have something for my old beater. Thanks..
