Haven't seen much on here with a 265/40/22, mainly 265/35/22. What are your thoughts on the 265/40 with a 4/6 on 22" snowflakes, 31mm offset. Want to try to squeeze out as much compliance that I can....

I had 40s when I first dropped my truck lower.
I had 2" spindles up front, stock springs.
Hanger/Shackle in the rear.

When I went lower I put a 3" V6 lowering spring, and flipped my UCAs
The rear got a flip and 1" lift shackles.

On turns, my 40s were hitting my front fenders, as well as the rears.
With the 35s they dont hit the sides of the fenders, just the stock tubs up front.
Takes a bit of a bump, but they hit. The 40s...you fart near the front and it'd hit.


But to me...the 40s rode a billion times better and looked better too.

I remember your pewter truck from back in the day on performancetrucks. Always liked the 22” Stingray IIIs. Nice to see you still have it.

Alright, I finally have this truck sitting where I want it. She’s a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 Classic 4x4.
It’s sitting at a 4/6 drop using Belltech drop spindles, torsion keys, street performance shocks and their alignment kit up front.
Out back I’m using Belltech’s flip kit without the hangers and a underbed notch. I also have helper bags from Airlift Company that I need to install.
Sitting on OE Creations PR144 in a 22x9 size. Tire size is a 265/35R22.
Fender measurements are 30” in front and range from 29 1/2” to 28” in the rear depending on how much fuel is in the tank. Hence, the reasoning for needing to install helper bags.

Just curious never looked under one, is the upward CV angle as bad as a cranked one but in the opposite direction? Or is it pretty flat.

It's definitely angled upwards. I've had it lowered for about a month now and haven't noticed any issues. Granted, I haven't turned 4wd on either, as of yet.
One or two piece driveshaft?
