Hey guys looking to see if someone wants to swap parts? I have a line on a brand new 7.5” RC lift new still in the boxes but I don’t want to go that high I want the 5” RC lift so if anyone has a 5” RC lift and wants to go higher I would trade you the knuckles and rear blocks. I called rough country and that is the only 2 different things between the kits. Let me know sorry this is for a 2011 to 2019

If the 7.5 is new why not ask rough country if they would be willing to swap parts out even if its for a fee. Seems that would be hella easier than trying to find someone with the 5" lift to swap around.

Will give it a try and see what they say I guess

Could you not lower the 7.5" all the way down to 5" or at least 6"?

Looks like I can buy the rear blocks and the NTD front brackets separately from RC for 330 bucks.

That ain't bad. Plus if you ever wanted to go back higher you'd already have the parts.

Well boys I ordered my 5” rough country lift kit today got a hell of a deal on a new lift so just went this route. I will also be getting Bilstein shocks with it too. Can’t wait

That is the exact set up I had on mine. 5” Rough Country and Bilsteins. Don’t forget to get the Bilstein steering stabilizer and brackets if you don’t have them. It makes a huge difference in the way it rides.
Hey frogman which steering stabilizer kit you go with? I have been reading that these kits are not a direct bolt on need to do some modifying as GM doesn’t have the mounting holes on our trucks anymore??? Let me know I sure would like a direct bolt on kit

Mine was a ‘15 so I had the brackets for a steering stabilizer already on it. I know that a few people on here welded the brackets in, but I’m not sure where they got them from. I figured that there was a kit available, but honestly,I’m not sure.
