    I have been thinking about purchasing the 2014 chevy 1500 4×4 4inch suspension lift kit. I want 35inch on either a 18 or 20. Would either of these fit and by any chances do you have pictures of either one. Also how much stuff would it look?

      Hey Ben, thanks for you interest in BDS Suspension. We have had customers fit 35×12.50s with this 4” Lift System, however most choose to go with our 6” system for adequate clearance for larger wheels/tires. 18s and 20s can be used with this kit, however you’ll want to follow our recommendation for wheel width and wheel backspacing for proper clearance to the suspension components and to alleviate rubbing issues. Wheel/Tire recommended specs are available on the product pages at http://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=710H

    I have a question about factory wheels. I have a 2014 z71 and I am running 285 on 18″ factory wheels. Will the factory wheels work with the 4″ lift??

      Hey Stephen, factory 18” wheels can be reinstalled with our 4” lift kit, however 295/65r18 are the maximum tire size we recommend running. Any wider may run into interference with the upper control arms. For more on the topic you can contact our sales/tech support team at (517) 279-2135

    I’m just curious about price and how this kit would look with 33in tires with a wide stance. I’m new to the 4×4 scene so I don’t know much about all the offsets on wheels.

      Hey Gary,
      As far a kit pricing, it will depend on the options you go with. We offer the standard kit as well as upgrades like Fox shocks and coilovers as well full springs options. You can build a kit to your specification and get MSRP on our website at http://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=712H or check with your local BDS distributor (http://bds-suspension.com/distributor-lookup) to see what they can offer you.

      The 4” lift on the newer GM1500s looks very proportional on 33” tires. You’ll want to be careful running wider wheels and smaller offsets as they increase the range of motion the tire takes up in the wheel well when turn from lock to lock. Fender trimming may be necessary to keep it from rubbing. While you have the option to run them, 10”-12”-14” wide wheels are outside of our recommended wheel and tire specs which can be found on the product page at the link above.

    Will this lift kit allow me to retain my stock 17 inch rims with 33 inch tall rubber on my 2015 sierra 1500

      Unfortunately not, Julius. The stock 17s have an interference issue with steering linkage on the replacement knuckles. For more info and important notes involving this kit head to http://bds-suspension.com/kit-customizer?kid=712H

    Have 2014 Silverado want to run 285-75-18. Rims would be stock. Would this work with a 4 inch lift or would a 6 inch lift be better. I really want to get a 4 with this set up.

      Or would I have to run a 3mm spacer or something ?

      Hey Logan,
      While the 285/75r18 tire size will work on the 4″ lift kit, unfortunately the stock 17-18″ wheel cannot be reinstalled with this lift kit due to the clearance issue with the tie rod ends with the new steering knuckles. If you’re set on reinstalling the factory wheels it would require a larger wheel spacer to achieve our recommended 5″ backspacing. For more on this kit and important notes head to http://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=712H and click on the “customize this kit” button.
