    Want to go 4-6" lift. I've lifted many vehicles in my time and am soooo tired of getting it all done and then a year later learning the hard way of the lift's shortcomings. And what really sucks is the 'better' lift is usually only 10% more costs. I would gladly spend a little more to get it right.
    I would like to not go too high for too much fender gap, so 6" max.
    What's the best that holds all the best steering angles etc.


    I think I would like to keep my LTZ mag ride shocks. It seems to me that they go dead soft when you switch into 4lo and I love the hell out of them for that. Also the speed dependent adjustments are great.

    Tahoe is already majorly trimmed and running 35's on 2.5/1.5 lift. Have Spoon adjustable rear arms already. https://www.tahoeyukonforum.com/threads/stuffed-35-12-5s-with-only-2-5-1-spacer-lift.78188/

    I’d say with the height range you would like to stay in I would go with a BDS. They have 4” and 6” kits, both are offered in a plan kit and coil over conversion kit. I am not sure about keeping your mag ride shocks.....but coil overs would be the cats meow!

    Cognito is one the best out there and the front 4" kit is right at $1,400. I'm still waiting to hear back from them to see if they offer a rear kit to match the front. I had a BDS on my '04 Silvy and it too was quality kit and $1,900 for their 4" kit is not too bad either.

    Didn’t realize Cognito had a kit smaller than 7” for this year. In light of that I’d say Cognito then BDS. I love my Cognito and couldn’t say enough good things about it.

    Like others have said I'd say cognito. Had one on my silverado before I did the SAS and would have loved one for the tahoe but got the procomp for a killer deal. Next I'd go with FTS but that's just personal preference.

    Cognito is great. From the sounds of it, if you want 4-6” go BDS, you won’t be disappointed.

    If you end up with bds also look into Zone which is their sister company.

    The only 4" Zone lift I have seen is a level with a body lift.
