How big of kit should i get to get the rims in the back to tuck a little, and for the to tuck? Also if i use leaves in the back will i feel the common bouncing you tend to get from blocks alone?:guitar:

Awesome, your truck looks the same as mine, 'cept mine's a 4.3 :D

Honestly I don't think you could get a static "lowering kit" that would tuck those rims. If you wanna tuck, bag it. :)

Ok, heres the deal, you cannot tuck those 16's in the BACK on just a drop. You would have to be bagged in order to tuck the back, because a 4/5 drop alone will not be low enough to tuck the back, only the front, because the five is in the front and the 4 is in the back, and a four isnt enough. However if you did go low enough with leafs to tuck the back it would be to low and much too dangerous. And as far as the bouncing goes, that is up to the shocks you either have or are gonna get, not blocks or leafs. Hope this helps.:thumbup:

factory tires, but ive got some 45's in my garage i mihgt slap on, i really dont want to tuck rim, i would be fine with tire, i just dont want to have to climb into the bed of my truck. I basically want the gap gone. I saw dustro's s-10, im looking at as low as he was before the bags.

re:

I'm tucking tire up front with 2" spindles and 1" coils, the rear is like .5" away from tucking tire and all I have is 3" block with factory leafs.

I'm running 225/65/15 during the winter and 255/40/17 during the summer... both are close to tucking in the rear, but are definately tucking/rubbing up front.

I'm sure that if you went with a de-arched leaf and a 2 or 3" block you'd be just barely grazing the tire (definately reducing fender gap).

I've included some pictures of my truck with the winter & summer rims.





Hope this helps,
