Hey,
whats up everyone?
Hey,i just joined,
I own a 2005 silverado 4x4, 5.3,long bed,reg cab.
I want to install a 6" pro comp suspension lift.
I would also like to install a set of 12.50x35 tires.
My concerns are how bad does this effect the u joints,
how will it handle after this.
Has anyone out there done this mod, and been happy with it?
The folks at pro comp assure me it handles nicely afterward(of course they do)
the kit I'm looking at cost 1,700.00 just for the kit,
i will install myself……any ideas my new found chevy heads??
Please help with experiences or suggestions.
c,r,

Another popular choice is the Rough Country 6 inch lift. The part where it costs only $1,300 sweetens the deal.

In my opinion yes, and I like it. The 6 inch bracket lift is the one I recommend. You can download the instructions on how to install it if you go to the 4wheelparts website. I like the bracket lift because my front wheels track width are the same and don't track out wider than the rear wheels compared to some of the spindle lifts. It is a more expensive than RC's lift with the non-torsion drop, but it's a true 6 inch drop of the front differential, I believe. My is not cranked up in the front and the front cv angles are flat. If I had another chance to do it all over, I would go with full throttle, but I cant complain about the smooth ride, or the quality of the kit. I will be upgrading my shocks to bilsteins later though.

Procomp bracket is probably the best fulldrop 6" kit for the nbs trucks IMO safely crank to 7-8"
