    Default New Guy From Springfield Missouri

    Hey people. What's up, im kelly. Just bought my Silverado last saturday (11/28). Its an 06, Crew Cab, LT, 2wd with the 5.3. Not exactly my dream truck but its a workhorse. I'm a tire salesman for Tire Centers, LLC in Springfield Mo. I sell commercial truck tires so no i CAN'T get you cheap tires for your car or truck. Lol. I say that because on every other forum im on, thats one of the first questions i get. However...i have ALOT of experience in the passenger and light truck field so i can answer any questions or make some suggestions as to what you might need. Anywho, since my truck is a 2wd, i'm thinking about lowering it a few inches...Shackles deffinately seem to be the way to go for the rear....fast, easy and cheap...any suggestions for the front...? Thinking about 1 1/2- 2" in the rear and an inch in the front. Any suggestions are appreciated. THANKS GUYS!!!!

    Hey, I'm a noob too. Welcome to the site. I am trying to raise mine so good luck on the lowering kit, seems drop spindles will be the best but may cause a bit so do your homework. Take care
