Intro/ 3" lift w/ 33" pic request!
Hi all. I'm new to this site. I thought I would introduce myself and ask if anyone has a NBS silverado (4-door preferred) with a 3" lift and 33" tires. I'm looking into this for mine and would LOVE to see it first!
When I get my lift I will be sure to post lots-o-pics of the install and before and after shots.

Are you looking into the Rough Country 3" lift for your NNBS?

Just a heads up Justin....The RC 3" kit is crap!! I have the ReadyLift 2.25 Level kit and I am running 33's. Might be the better choice for you unless you want to jump up the a 4" kit.

When looking at 3" of lift, there really isn't a better option than a body lift IMO.

HI all and thanks for the warm welcome! I've read all the reviews on here about the RCX 3" lift. I just got a response from Rough Country about it too. I asked if any of the known issues have been taken care of to correct the ball joints, alignment issues, fasteners ect.... this is the response that I got from Ryan Chase at RC:
"Yes our arms actually now come with clevite bushings and oem ball joints."
Do you think this would help solve any issues? I would love to do the 5" kit from RC, but I don't know if I can swing an extra $1,000.00 right now plus new tires, plus alignment, plus wheels (if the 09 Z71 wheels wouldn't work)... Maybe I should just save my lunch money for a while and go with the BDS 6" kit that looks so B.A.!

Don't buy it and refer to post #6. You could do a 3" BL and a 2" leveling kit for close to the same price as the Junk Country 3" and have a solid setup.

thanks for the suggestion, but I've never been a big fan of Body Lifts... I'll eventually get a suspension lift and a leveling kit is probably going to be on order by the weekend.
Are there any known problems with the RCX 5" kit that lowers the LCA's? on GMFULLSIZE.com there are a LOT of guys that are running that kit and they all seem to be pretty happy with it.
BTW- Blackout07 your truck is SICK!!!
