What 6" lift least intrusive to towing?
I'm lifting my 2010 Sierra and putting some 35s on it. Is there a lift that is better in terms of towing? I just don't want to give a lot up on stability. I'd seen gas shocks and spiffy expensive upgrades to some of the bigger lift kit manufacturers. Is all that necessary?2010 GMC Sierra SLT Crew Cab Midnight Blue

Regardless of the choice of 6" lift I would:
- Add some helper springs (a la Roadmaster Active Suspension) to reduce body roll in both loaded and unloaded conditions. It helps on non-lifted trucks and is even more useful on lifted trucks ... and is a sane 350 clam upgrade as long as you're not sand dune hopping or mud bogging.
- Use an adjustable drop hitch to allow you to level out your towed load so that it is as level as you can get it (and, thus, catches minimal wind from underneath it). I personally use a Rapid Hitch with a 10" adjustable drop; I tried the 6" drop and it wasn't low enough for some smaller/lower trailers.
