Some reading material
Look into the Chevy section for more linked nbs threads. There are quite a few. Reading these will make your build easier.

I don't know what happened to the build thread, but I'd look for more info on this truck. It was a well done and low 3-linked Silverado.

Reinforce that frame while its torn apart. They were known for cracking right behind the shock mounts. However that may not be an issue with a different setup like yours. Either way i still would for peice of mind and it wont take much effort. If you google youll find some pics of the exact spot

Cool, a build thread from a new member with what appears to be a phenomenon called "ambition". Exciting stuff! Looking forward to the updates.

I guess, i need a better definition of "low" that thing looks to be lifted at least 12" before putting tires on...it's very nice though.

Welcome to the sight....

I was trying to attach the bdmt build that strangler did years ago, but could not find it...

This might be worth reading though.

Ok, found the thread on pirate from the original build. Chopperman built it with 6" of lift compared to stock. Somewhere in there he said you might be able to get away with 4" if you made some other compromises. Either way, super clean execution.
