    a lot of people here have rough country lifts and i think they are the best bang for your buck lift wise you can get. I have not heard anything really bad about them except the shocks

    7.5 inch Rough country lift New Body style!

    Hey i'm new too this site i have a 2008 chevy silverado 1500 z71 i just ordered in a 7.5 inch rough country suspension lift kit. I was wondering does the rcx kit give you the full 7.5 inches or not? Also i have 33 13.50's on 18 inch black rockstarr's with a levelin kit 2.5 inch stock right now. Will those tires be too small when i put the lift on? I plan on runnin them down then upgrading to 20 inch rockstarr's and 35 12.50 nitto mud grapplers. Also could i add my 2.5 inch levelin kit to the front and it be no harm? What will i need to level it out the rear with when i do that?

    not sure about what the lift actually gives you but i think the 33s would look small with 7.5" of lift but i would run them anyways until you need new ones. no need to spend over a grand on new rubber if you dont have to. and if you talking about putting the leveling kit on with the rough country lift i would not. just because that kit comes with strut spacers and no upper control arms so it would cause bad angles. thats just my opinion tho.

    oh okay i thought so a few people have told me it could give me bad angles and possibly mess some stuff up.. what would be a easier way to give my truck a few more inches either a block, add a leaf's or body lift i dont like body lift all that much tho.

    You can leave your leveling kit on your truck, it won't do it any harm but you'll have ~10 in. of total lift with the addition of the Rough Country kit riding on 33's. 33's are a good size for 4 in. of lift or less (IMO) but with the 10 in. lift they might look kinda small. At that ride height you can probably stuff 37's under there.

    well that kit comes with blocks for the back and it will sit pretty level. and i dont think you have another option to go higher besides a body lift if you go with that kit.

    yea i gotcha ha well idk about the 2.5 inch levelin kit for sure but i'm sure yall know more than i do.. i'm sure it might ride a lil bit more rough and will i need to even the backout too or would it be fine sittin a bit higher in the front?

    Some people like the look of the front sitting a little higher than the rear, but its all preference whether or not you would want to even it out or not.
