    I recently aquired a set of avalanche/tahoe ltz 20" wheels but they dont seem to fit because of the lift my truck has. The wheels are hitting the upper arm because of the spindles. Should i get rid of the lift and return it to stock or should i just buy a lowring kit so it will sit lower than stock??? Any recomondations for lowering kits???

    You could get a set of wheel adapters/spacers to move the wheels out so you'd have clearance..

    I thought about the spacers but i have a bad history with those things...

    Can you give us the specifics of your truck; make, model, 4wd/2wd, lift info, anything to give us a better understanding why they arent fitting?

    Cars are made to be lowered. Trucks are made to be raised. That's how I was raised anyway... ;)

    its a 2003 2wd silverado 1500 extcab, no lift info the truck came with it when i purchased it. Upper arms are hitting the tire...

    Not when you use you truck for actual work...I just want it stock height to make it easier to load and offload motorcycles... So before i decide wether to bring it back down to stock height or lower just needed some suggestions, thank you for yours.:lol:

    Just get you a 2 or 2.5 inch leveling kits. It doesn't mess with your stock suspension and will give you the clearance you require. Plus will get rid of that annoying nose down look. Measure the middle of the rear wheel fender to the ground and do the same to the front to see how much you'll need to go. Just google leveling kits and find one that works for you.
