    I was watching speed and they were lifting a 2006 chevy z71 like mine. And they were saying how when you lift the chevy's having the hub assembly with one bearing, that it is best to switch it for lock in hubs. Because the bigger tires will tear down the regular hub assembly in around a years time. now I know they say that but I would like to know if anyone else has actually had this trouble by lifting their chevy z71's ...

    I would have no idea, but am very interested in the answer and the details of switching to lock in hubs.
