I have a nnbs silverado 1500 crew 4x4. it has a 6" skyjacker suspension. the tires(35/12.5/18) rub at full lock and i want to fix this. I was wondering what my options were. I have the replacement strut kit and was thinking i could put 2" coil spacers in the front and new blocks in the back to make it an 8" lift. thanks

Any more lift and your CV's might get pissed. How wide of a wheel are you running? 8'' wide shouldn't rub, but a 10'' wide will.

I have cut metal and plastic and I still rub. My wheels are 18x9 with -12 offset. The 1.5" BL is not far away in my future.

the body lift is a great idea but i don't want to redo the bumpers, steps, hitch. the cv angle isn't to bad. would the 2 inch coil spacers work in the front, i mean is that all i would need to make it work? and for the back could i put the factory blocks in under the new blocks? what have you guys done with the rear blocks stacked them or just put in the new ones. thanks earnhardt your truck turned out bad ass nice work man

Thanks man.

Don't stack your blocks. Just buy bigger blocks for the rear. As far as the spacer, I don't know. I don't know of anyone running a Skyjacker kit on a NNBS.

Dont stack blocks, bad idea. Id run a Shackle Flip and 2-3" block. As far as the front..looking at the pics it looks like you got new struts ?? I think you can run the CCM on top. But take a pic of your strut setup you have now, and the CV angles you have now if you could.

I tried Extenze snd that didn't work on the free trial offer, I was still 2" shorter than I wanted to be. Then I tried Enzyte because Bob looks like such a badass with his big new swing of confidence...... It worked, but pumps are such a pain in the ass I don't like em.

Oh wait, on your truck? Yeah do the 1.5" BL :crazy:
