Hey,

Just picked up an 05 sierra crew with a lovely fabtech lift on it (it was a good deal)

It has 325 65 18's on it so I guess they are about 35 12.5s.

Does anyone see a problem with me decranking a little bit, running some shorter blocks out back and running 33 12.5's?

Will I run into binding or anything with the cv's and how do yall think it will look. I dont feel like regearing the truck atm and want something more streetable but still able off road.

Any one with pics of nbs fabtech and 33s post em I would appreciate.

no need to de crank, just run it as is with 33. Will look perfect and you will have no rubbing issues.

If your gonna go to 33's you might as well decrank and get a little better aerodynamics.

De-cranking take 2 minutes. Your angles will be better de-cranked. No binding issues.

Just throw the new tires on there. If you think they look too small or if you want to bring the trunk down, then de-crank and throw in a smaller rear block and get a new alignment.

make your angles flat then adjust the rear to make it sit right... towering over tires is gay
