Before i start Cranking...

Before i start to lift my truck i just have a quick question. I would like to know what will happen to the weight capacity of the bed of the truck once i lift it. I am going to crank the t-bars in the front but for the rear i am putting in GM lowering shackles. Will that take away weight capacity from the bed of the truck? i just want to know because i am soon to be bringing a few bed-loads of firewood for the winter. i do plan on getting KYB MonoMax shocks as well.

Please let me know if my the weight capacity in the rear will be affected by the GM lowering shackles on the high setting and max t-bar height.

It won't change a thing. If you go with lift springs...that would change your capacity. But blocks or shackles or AAL don't change cap.
