    Are your 35s rubbing in the front when turning and are the rears rubbing. I also have a 05 Z-71 with 6" Skyjacker lift, but I did change the rear springs and I have no issues with the rear but I have the front Torson bars cranked just a little so the front sets a little higher than the rear. I did trim the front bumper just a little, most people dont see that the bumper was trimmed. You can get a 5.5" rear block and longer u-bolts but on GMs they seem to get axle hop with the taller block. Rancho doesnt make a set of rear springs for your truck but Skyjacker does make a set of soft ride springs for your truck and you can use them with a small block to get the lift you want. Theres a side picture of my truck in the photo section titled My Black Z-71.

    I forgot to say on my last post that the side picture of my black z-71 was posted on 12-15-2009 if this will help you find it. As you can tell I'm not real savy on a home computer.
