A friend of mine is looking to buy a new silverado for a daily driver and wants to lift it pretty tall but still usable for some offroad. I think hes leaning for a 1500 4x4 ext cab. Hes probably gona want about 38" tires so my question to you is can the ifs handle it? Do they still make the 1500HD? Would that IFS handle 38's? Hes either going to get a full throttle 9.5" or a CST 9-11" kit. Thanks for the help its probably gona go down this summer and he wants all of the info down before he gets it. :bowtie:

I would get a 2500HD for 38s but thats just me. If he treats it nice it will be ok on a 1500 but not if he wheels it hard at all. You need at least 9.5" of lift, 12" or so would be better.

I would get a 2500hd also but a brand new one = $$$$ But if he does a little wheeling like once or twice a year not very hard its not gona fall apart right? Hes looking at the FT 9.5 and the CST 9-11 i dont think i trust whiplash but the cognito looks good but cant get much info or pricing off their site.

I would also say get the HD. If he is looking for the CST 9-11, I am pretty sure it is only available for an HD.

If he is looking to run 38s on a 1500 he probably be doing so damage off-road.
