My '18 Silverado

Just posting an update since I haven't been on the board in forever.

This is my new '18 CCSB 2wd 6.2L Silverado in Graphite Gray. Lowered 5/7 with McGaugheys and some 22" Replica GMC Denali wheels. Exhaust is next at some point, but enjoying it as is right now. Get 23mpg highway which is pretty awesome.

Re: My 18' Silverado

Since many don't know...

'18 = 2018
18" = 18 inches
18' = 18 feet

Re: My 18' Silverado

That's nice, love the graphite! How was the lowering? Any vibrations existing or new?

No vibrations whatsoever and only noise I had was over large bumps the stock exhaust would get tapped by the rear end.

Originally had it 6/8 but raised it back up an inch because the inner felt liners in the front rubbed a whole heck of a lot. At 5 drop it only rubs at full lock in reverse.
