Default Re: Ready Lift Kits????

I was curious if anyone has put on this kit that lifts the front 4 inches and the back 1.75 inches..
"NEW" Chevy Lift Kit : Silverado 1500 2007-2011 4WD - SST 4.0"F/1.75"R

How much strain would this type of lift put on a truck???
This is my first truck and im kinda looking around at what i can do to it haha..
Already have the cat back magnaflow and K&N Air intake kit..

Any info would be appreciated ladies and gents..

You should be fine. I have a 6" rough country lift with 35 mts. I go off road every once and awhile. mostly road driving and nothing has gone wrong with mine.
