I have a 2006 Chevy 2500HD that is currently leveled (was that way when I bought it) and am running 275/70R18's.
I LOVE the way it looks, but the leveling makes it ride pretty rough, so I'm thinking seriously about putting a small lift kit on the truck to get the CV's and other front suspension components closer to factory angles. Right now, I'm considering a Zone Offroad 4-6" lift
as its a subsidiary of BDS, and the most cost effective, plus I've read plenty of decent reviews. Once installed, I would set it up to have the best suspension angles possible, and ideally be about a 4" lift.
My concern is that with towing a 5th wheel, it might sit too high, and I will not mess with the 5th wheel suspension to make this happen.
I'm interested in hearing people's experience with lifts and towing 5th wheels, as well as if anyone has a 4" lift, what the measurement would be from ground to fender well.
Now I do intend to increase the tire size a little. I will stick with 18" wheels, but probably go up to a 35x10.50 - 12.50.
Alternatively, if a lift just won't work, I have seen some improved leveling kit solutions that replace the UCA and some other components to make the ride and angles better. Again, looking for feedback here, thanks!
