    I am looking to put either a 4" or 6" suspension lift on my truck.
    Here are a few of the Questions I have:

    1. Which brand is best with Chevy and does it matter that my vehicle has stability control?
    2. What size wheel should I look at (17,18,20???)
    3. Depending on wheel what size tire?

    Trying to get a total price idea for my wife since she controls the checkbook, lol.

    Thanks for the help,

    Well Alot of peole have alot of different opinions on brands of lifts, i qould say 6 in cuz im all for big lift, probably fabtech too they make a nice lift. But I would reccommend a smaller size rim, because the bigger the rim the more expensive the tire and probably 33 in tires

    Welcome to the club, Andrew. What year, 2wd or 4wd and 1/2 or 3/4 ton is your truck? Some manufacture year kits are better than other years.

    BDS,Rancho and Skyjacker all make good quality kits that work. Tire and wheel size is a personal thing, but a 17" X 35" is alot cheaper than a 20" X 35". Again tire/wheel is a personal/money thing.
