    stock...If i were to do anything to my truck...lift
    although for your vehicle i am all for lowering, and even if my truck was 2wd i would lower it.

    Stock. I've done the lowered/lifted thing before with other vehicles.

    With lowered, you can run into ride quality and ground clearance issues.

    Lifted, your lose some handling and drivability.

    All depending on how high or low you go and what kind of vehicle it is, of course.
    But for this vehicle, I like stock.

    Stock here. If anything, I'd like to just level it out (never have been fond of the nose down look).

    Thanks. my dad growing up was all into lifting and now he has his daughter and son who love to lower. My brother still has the silverado that was stolen. i should post a picutre of what it looked like to what it looks like now thanks to the help of some thugs. Chevy told me to buy the trailblazer and said of course you can do the same things to the TB that you can do to a blazer. (boy were they wrong) I am just still bumbed because i want to slam the TB to the ground. Anyone have any help to offer?

    Omegafiler: Trust me I completely understand. ride quality sucks. i pick up everything on the freeway when going only 30-40 mph. (which is about all you can go in LA) But i was all about looks and didn't mind loosing the quality. Ground clearance, yup i get trucks right up on my butt when i have to slow down to go through a dip or a over a bump. i think i am just use to it though.

    My dad lowered by boyfriends car for him, (my boyfriend is mechanically challenged) and he came home saying "well, i just ruined another vehicle" he hates people who lower. oh well.

    Well my truck is stock for right now. When it comes time to the major change I'm not sure if I want to A) Go with a 6" lift with 35's, B) Supercharger with new gears headers and the works, or C) Put all the money towards the truck I really want DENALI. I was fine with the height mine was at because the front sat even with my buddies 06 with 33's and a 4" lift. He has since gone to a 7" lift with 35's so now I've got some work to do.

    Lifted, but only a little. A lowered 4wd that sees quite a bit of off road time wouldn't make much sense for me.
