Put the RC 3” lift on yesterday, got an alignment this morning. First pic is the new tires from Friday pre lift. Just like everything else pictures do not do it justice, by looking at pictures the 3” lift looks minimum or nothing at all but in person it is definitely noticeable, especially the first time you walk up to unlock the door and the handle is higher than your muscle memory is used to. Haven’t done any after measurements yet to see if it’s actually “level”.
For anyone wondering and needing a definite, confirmed answer - You can fit 285/70/R18 on stock wheel with no lift without any rubbing. I retained the factory Bilsteins with the lift kit, I may upgrade to 5100s but I’m going to ride this for a while and see how I like it.
Installation wasn’t too difficult if you have all the tools and then some, a lot of tight space trying to loosen the upper control arms, and the back nut on top of the strut tower while it’s in the truck. Multiple jacks and stands helpful for placement of arms after spacers and blocks are in, used a spring compressor on the first side but re-strategized and was not needed on the other. Multiple jacks are helpful on the back to keep the differential and drive shaft in good angles while working to put the rear blocks on. Only driven about 50 miles but the ride so far feels like stock just taller.
