Hey I'm new here but I have lurking and this site is great so much info

My 2012
6 inch bds
3 inch rear
No coil spacer in front just strut
Front fender 43 rear 44
Bfg at 325/60/r20
4.5 bkspc -12 offset

Back to debating on going higher as I have the 5 inch rear that was swapped out after install for being way to ass high. So I could throw that in and get some bilsteins. I am stuck 355 gearing so 35 is the max for tires which sucks. So what's better get bilsteins or other route body lift.i could just leave it the way it is what do you guys think looks good now to.

Cheers

alright first photo is how she sits now with the 3
second is with the 5 but sled in the back compresses the springs almost 1.5 so it is similar to what it is now maybe a tiny bit higher
3rd pic is the 5 inch rear stink bug

Welcome to the Z

If you able the 5" rear, I'd throw that back in and do some Bilsteins at 2.1
You'll still,have some slight rake, but still look good with those 35's
BDS and 2.1 Bilsteins is very similar to RCX and 1.4 setting and I ran this way up till this weekend

If you need Bilsteins or body lift, send me an email to my username (fastNugly@discountautoperformance.com)

Welcome once again

Also, lets see pics

Thanks fastnugly

I will have to get some more current pics with my real camera friggin iphones suck.

what is the advantage to bilsteins over the body lift? I thought the body lift might be the way to go to keep the stock angles.

I would like to keep at least1 of rake for when I am hauling the sled around.


Or tell me i am crazy and just to leave it and save me some money haha!

Sweet! Cant wait to see these pics
We you can do either a body lift or Bilsteins.
Body lift will just lift your current stance now.
Many here, such as Chadster run Bilsteins (Pro Comp in his case) and body lift.
Yes, body lift will keep your same angles now, which is not a bad idea if that is what you are worried about.
But BDS gives you a pretty damn good from diff drop so even if you add Bilsteins at 2.1, your angles will be pretty close to stock angles
I say do the shocks as your truck will ride better.
Im not a personal fan of a body lift. Had it on my truck...the creaks and squeaks got to me. Im anal, so I notice everything. My wife didnt notice a thing.
Either way, I removed it.
But again, many people and members here love the body lift.
So its really your call
Either way, I will try to steer you in the right direction and get you what you need.

Hey ya those pics are out in the bc backcountry near Golden. Those pics were just after getting it installed and it was a great test as it was 60 km of deep muddy ruts and rough road. Worth it though as the backcountry is endless up there.

I think I am with ya fast on the bilsteins if they improve the ride and anything creaking would annoy me as well. Since I have the both rear kits I like the idea of being able to go back down again as well.

So the bilsteins will use the current coils I have now correct? Pm me the cost to get the bilsteins for the front fast

Thanks

Sending you a PM
