    I am planning to buy a suspension lift kit for my 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS. What brand can you recommend? I would like to add at least 4-inches of ground clearance on my truck.

    You'll need 4" taller tires to get 4 more inches of ground clearance...........

    technically, 4" more ground clearance could be achieved with 2" of lift and 2" taller tires

    or 1" lift and 3" taller tires

    or as @barrrf said, 4" taller tires and no lift

    edit: I also forgot 4" of lift and stock tires

    or 3" of lift and 1" taller tires

    2" taller tires only gains you 1" of lift. So I was wrong. Under the rear diff ground clearance doesnt change no matter how much lift you put on.

    Right?

    right. only the tires/wheels would change difference under the rear diff unless you swapped out rear ends, but wont gain you much.
