Re: Anybody tried 265 65 R18?

@Harvie Is that GC lifted or a completely stock suspension? Would sport mode with the QL cause rubbing with that tire?

Re: Bilsteins!!! Got 'em, one question though.....

My bilsteins deff softened up but do not ride nearly as 'smooth' as my stock shocks did. And there are many potholes where i drive and the stiffer shocks are no fun.

Could anybody recommend an aftermarket set of shocks and struts that will accommodate the 2" lift on my truck while having as similar smooth ride as stock. These Bilsteins are just not cutting it.

Re: Bilsteins!!! Got 'em, one question though.....

I only have 14k on my truck. I upgraded to the Bilsteins expecting a finer ride and feel like they just added 100k to my trucks ride.

Re: HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

Thats a great price. The cheapest ive found is $350, another guy said 4-5 hrs at $100 an hr. I am in NY so my prices are higher but i think $270 is fair as hell.
