    I just did the same thing, coming from a 2015 Sierra... It's actually sad how terrible GMs trucks are now.

    Nice looking truck. Welcome.

    With a budget of 3-400, might look into Bilstein 5100, diff drop and that should be good. Keep the level under 2.5" unless you are looking for aftermarket upper control arms.

    Toytec is a favorite around here. They have different options and have not heard anything bad on advice or customer service for the average guy looking to improve his ride.

    For you price range Bilstein 5100's are the way to go. No maintenance required, makes the ride a little better, and gives you the desired lift in the front you want to level it out. Might cost a little bit more than a spacer lift, but the peace of mind is well worth it.

    Agreed on the bilsteins. Definitely choose those over the spacers. Or you could wait a little longer and get some OME, Ultimate, or BOSS suspension setups from Toytec.

    Welcome!
    Silver Sky trucks are the fastest, and have the highest resale values.
    You chose wisely, Matt.
