    99 yukon obs with the autotrac and torsion keys swapped to level it out. I've had no problems. Just a pain in the a$$ to change--ended up have to take it in and have the pros do it.

    Yes you need the right tools to do the job. I just did mine not to long ago on NBS and no problems at all.

    I am going to let a shop do it. Just wondered if the autrac and the z71 was a problem at all.

    Like I said I have had no problems so far with mine and the shop didn't say anything about it having the autotrac and it being a problem.

    I ran explorer pro comps on it and when I ordered them I told the guy what I had done and he said the shocks were the same as stock. I have since changed again and went back to bilstens and I just bought the stock replacements from autozone. I haven't had any problems with the shocks. I did'nt use the blocks in the back, I used an add-a-leaf to keep my truck on level while pulling my boat.
