You will of course have to drop your hitch to the same amount as you lift the Silverado, I really don't know that a lift of 6" on your Silverado would effect the tow handling, personally if it were mine I would not lift it. I would feel safer with a lower center of gravity on my tow vehicle with such a heavy trailer. 5 tons is a lot of trailer. especially on a hitch, as opposed to a 5th wheel, and you might consider going to a pintle hitch instead of a ball. They are stronger. The very highest rated ball is a 2 5/16" ball and a 1 1/4" shank, and they are 10000 maximum. Your are really pushing the limits towing 5 tons with a ball. Now please forgive me if you already use a pintle, I just felt I should point that out and I was not thinking 5th wheel at all with a Silverado.
