First I would like to say Hello as I am new here, I own a 09 1500 SLT quad cab 4.7 4x4 w/ 17'rims and have found this site extremely helpful. For that I say thank you for all the great information here.
I'm from upstate NY, and wanted to lift my truck before winter this year. As I started to look into lifts I started hearing different oppinions about larger tires in the snow,(wide tires are bad I guess?) So I guess my first question would be, anyone have any insight on this.
Secondly, today I stopped by a local mod shop (very well respected locally) to get pricing. I was literally told that they WOULD NOT install ANY type of lift kit, or leveling kit, on my truck due to something chrysler calls the "Death Wobble". Apparently, it has something to do with body roll associated with the redesigned rear suspension, anything 09-10. So I decided to check my new favorite website, and have found some conflicting information.
I have read that it has been a problem as far back as 02? Then why does the coil set up matter? I have also read that you basically have a 50/50 shot at having it, and eating the cost on the kit & the labor.
Also I figured that there has to be quite a few users who have been running lifts and levelers for a while now, so mabye I could bring the topic back into light, and get the latest and greatest from the trenches.
Either way, I was thinking about a 5" Performance Accessories Premium Lift
or just dropping the coin on a full suspension 6' lift.
Fat tires work in snow?
5" Performance Accessories Premium Lift, any one try one & any good?
Does the dreaded 'jiggle' have a cure?
As always, thank you for your help,& nice to meet you all
