Well damn. I guess I will be shopping for a new leveling kit with UCAs. Ready Lift offers one, but they dont have any in stock.

I appreciate the information and sorry you're having to go through it. Sounds like a terrible time dealing with the dealerships and warranty company. What a pain in the a**.
Crazy thing. I just called Rough Country and they said they have zero reports of UCAs breaking with this particular leveling kit and that he doesn't recommend ordering the arms. I might do it anyways just to be sure. But it's crazy he told me that.

I still have the bumper to bumper warranty. I took it to two different GM dealerships and they said that if they call the engineers down to investigate, they will put a warranty block on my entire truck because of the improper aftermarket components. There have been lots of scenarios of this happening to the AT4’s and Trailbosses and they are well aware of it by now.

It’s because they come from the factory with a 2” lift on the front anyways, so adding an additional 2” level is practically like having a stock 4” kit which puts your UCA’s at a high risk of failing. It’s hard to see with the eye, but the angle and stress on it is terrible.

Learned my lesson for sure. It hasn’t been fun. Tried fighting this for weeks to get them to cover it but I’m done at this point. Biting the bullet and paying to get it fixed. 4k in damages all for a $200 leveling kit instead of the $600 with the UCA’s (to be fair I didn’t know though until now)
Do you use your truck off-road a lot? Can you tell me what leveling kit you installed?

of course he did. I might just do it to avoid any potential issues. I’d rather pay $500 now than thousands later. I just don’t want to do another install lol. Oh well.

Did you have to use wheel spacers with the BMF’s

Hey I love these wheels . Any brake caliper clearance issues or Uca clearance?
