2016 29.5BHDS - Sub Frame Installed! Nice!

I want to report back to those who were waiting for results!

Our trailer is finally leveled! We had the sub frame installed with new Dexter heavy duty shackle, spring and bushing kit! She tows really nice and leveled now! The frame shop also included additional axle bracing!

The sub frame was three inches, plus other hardware raised the rear over 5 inches.

Very nice, and very smart to add the hanger cross members. Have them in mine with no lift.

I will have to measure it again for you. But, our Ram came with the Heavy Duty package, the rear only goes down about 1.5 inch when we hook our trailer to the truck. Your GMC may be a bit lower than the Ram, but I'll measure it just in case. Stay tuned...
