It's 4WD. I'm actually really in a bind here. My Dad owns a chevy dealership...and talked to the guys at rocky ridge (they use pro comp lifts) and that was what is recommended on chevy trucks (supposedly). Well, pro comp does not make a 4" lift for silverados...I dont think at least. After much debate, I still cannot seem to figure out which one to go with. My favorite right now is the Rough Country 5"...but my Dad had told me that he has done some checking with the connections he has, and said rough country is not a good idea. On the other hand, everything I've read about the NEW rough country stuff..has been superb. I've also considered BDS, and Rancho...but they are like 2 grand. I'm just not willing to spend that much on the kit itself...
I'm also considering the 4" kit from ready lift....but I do not know very much about it. Any Suggestions???????
