View Full Version : 4/6 static drop on a 2012 1500

So my boss is hitting me up to help him out with a 4/6 static drop on his new undelivered 2012 chevy silverado.
Belltech, DJM, and Mcgauhys are the companies that I know of that have provided quality kits in the past for older models. Anyone have thoughts or warnings about any of them right now?
What about offset? he is thinking of running a 285/40R24 to a 285/30R24 tire and wheel combo how much offset is there to play with without getting into the inner fender or the outer fender?

The new body style has bigger/wider fenders so there is more room to play with. My '07 Classic had +35 offset, 20x8.5 with a 4/6. It went with McGaughys and had no problems.

There is no room in the fenders on these. They are big, but not deep. Stay close to stock offset or higher or there is a writeup on diesel place for trimming the fenders. I did it and it wasn't hard.
As for kits, I've been doing research and found that nobody really likes MCG spindles. Belltech, DJM, or MCG for the rear is good. Ground Force has the best front parts that are easiest to align.

I don't know where you are getting your information but the McGaughys kit is going to hands down be the nicest kit for that truck. They did win an award at sema from GM for best innovative design because their specs are the same as the factory. Same spindles I have run on my truck for 3 years & it aligns perfect even at a 5" drop in the front.
Sunburnedaz - McGaughys has the 3/5 - 4/6 adjustable kit which is pretty bad ass. As far as wheel size goes even with the 4/6 you don't have to worry too too much about offset, the new body style trucks don't drop as much as the classics & the wheel wells are bigger too. You would be fine running a 24x10 with a +30 & a 305/35/24, with some minor trimming. Throw some Bilstein shocks on it when your done and your gonna have one nice ride.

McGaughys is the way to go on the NNBS Ive been running 2" spindles for 2 yrs now no problems. Been thinking bout going lower now though 3/5 total
Anyway back to your question... McGaughys all the way...
