not unless you plan to haul a lot. I've got a 6.5" drop on the rear of mine, and it bottoms out every now and the. Put helper bags on the other day, and hasn't bottomed out since
MCG makes them for our trucks

Don't happen to have a picture of the backside of the frame do ya? Chevy sure made it difficult doing notches by boxing in the frame

Ive seen a few photos online of guys running a 4-6 with the factory 275-55-20 tire has any one else done this? i noticed the red one above most likely has a 275-40 or similar sized tire on it.

JB what rear air spring helper did you go with?
04-21-2009, 02:37 PM
mine's got 275/45's. If the wheels came with 275/55's on them, I woulda ran them. I'd like to go to 265/50's on the next set

beyond static what helper system are you running?

I gotta drop this 4x4 wannabe factory stance bad.

It's airlift helper bags for the 07-09 stock height. They are designed to use factory holes in the frame(no drilling required!), but since the axle was flipped, it interferred with the bags. Had to move them 3" back from what they were supposed to be. no biggie though
