Chevy 1/2-ton 4x4 trucks have had a bad rap off road for a while, but that's about to change. The Silverado's front IFS used to be criticized as too weak for trail work and too short for go-fast guys, but with the addition of BMS Off Road's new mid-travel IFS, this light-duty truck can now go romping and twisting to its heart's content.

We swung by the BMS shop and followed along as they installed the new Chevy/GMC Stage 1 suspension system on an '01 Silverado. The kit allows for 8 inches of front wheel travel, a 20 percent increase over stock. This suspension is available for '07 and newer 1500 Silverados, but BMS also covers earlier GM trucks as well as Fords, Toyotas, and Hummers.
