Hey guys I just bought a 2008 Silverado Crew Cab Z71 and im a little new to this lift kit stuff haha I just ordered a rough country 7.5" suspension lift and was wondering if anyone has heard anything bad about it? Also does a lift that big wear ball joints/tie rods fast? Thanks

Your upper ball joints are going to hate you, so yes. Should've gone with a different kit IMO.
For an 8" kit on a budget, I would go with Fabtech. It's marketed as a 6", but nets closer to 8" of lift. I got close to 7" out of my BDS and it's been an awesome kit. The RC kit requires you to cut off the droop stops due to extreme UCA angles, so your bj's are going to suck.
not trying to cause any arguement but your not going to find many people on here that like RC kits, i've had 2 of them and no problems with either or. i also was on a budget and they worked out for me the best and like i said i've had no problems with either i've installed.
I completely agree that their older kits are fine. But the kits for the new platforms are poorly designed. Take a look at the instructions for the 7.5" kit. RC's 3" kit has a well documented history of flaws. RC apparently doesn't make them like they used to.
