Hey Guys,


Have a 6 inch pro comp lift on my 09 Silverado for a few years now. Love it. The only real concern im having is the bearings and ball joints are wearing super fast. I know larger tires and the wider stance can give you issues but im replacing them twice a year almost. They are covered under warranty but I was wondering if anyone has had this issue or has found an underlying reason for it! My tires did not wear well or evenly causing the truck to pull certain ways as well. Something I will need to work on for my next set.


I appreciate it. Thanks!


- Mike

Hmm. that sounds like way too often. I wish I knew more about it - but I agree with your concern. That doesnt sound right.

Have you approached a tire/suspension type shop? Maybe somebody has some ideas..



I daily drive a Toyota 4Runner but I also play with Chevy's..
