Okay so i had an 2003 chevy silverado 2wd ext cab that i always said i was gonna lift and never did. well to make a long story short i totaled it and never got to lift it. But now I got a new truck out of the deal :big_banana_Dance:so i ended up with a Black 2009 chevy silverado 1500 crew cab 4x4 z71 LT1 and im ready to lift it. My ideal set up was going to be a 6 inch CST lift with 35 inch toyo M/T tires on some 20 inch rims but i have a set of 22 inch chrome liquid metal magma rims that i have from my old truck and was wonderin if anybody knows if i can fit 37 inch m/t with the 6 inch lift so i can keep the 22's on it. If not, what all would i need to do to my truck to keep it a daily driver ( 60 miles round trip, highway)... would i need to regear it? with a bigger lift do i need to extend the drive shaft or anything like that? Any of you guys have pictures i would love to see what itll look like when its done. Thanks in advance for any help for this newbie...

Go with the 8" CST and 37's.

You can run a spacer with the 8 inch cst just like you can with the fabtech or run coil overs

And no you won't have to get your drive shaft extended...but you will want to regear if you're wanting to run 37s or even 35s
