The Rancho level kit with the 9k XL's look really sweet. Never priced it, but would think they are close to the 5100's price.
    ohh :O and the ranchos are more expensive from what I heard. But they're worth it. I'm set on either Bilsteins or Ranchos. I still want to see a photo of a truck on the Bilsteins cranked up all the way, just to see the appearance. (:

    Default 1993 2500HD Suburban Torsion Keys

    I have checked with most every lift company and I cannot find torsion keys for a 1993 2500HD Suburban. This truck has 8 lug wheels, four wheel drive and a 14 bolt free floating rear axle. Companies list a kit for the 1993 Suburban, but when I ask them if it will fit the 2500HD, the answer is "we do not make that one".

    I seem to remember that 1993 was the first year for the IFS in a four wheel drive 2500 Suburban, and in 1994 Chevy changed the IFS by lengthening the front drive shafts. Anyhow, has anyone found keys for this beast? Thanks.

    Default Pro Comp 2.25" Strut Leveling Kit / Frontier Replacement Grille Guard

    Just wanted to post a before/after of the Pro Comp 2.25" Strut Leveling Kit I just had done yesterday as I looked for pics before I had it done and never found any. Also had a Frontier front replacement grille guard put on. Tires are 275/60/R20 Cooper Zeon's which I love as I had a hard time finding AT type tires for the 20" rims without doing a full lift.

    I have a 04 Silverado Z71. I installed the Tuff Country Leveling Kit last week. It had bigger front torsion keys and a rear add a leaf. The add a leaf made a noticeable difference and i gained 2inches in the front. The truck still looks like a 30s hot rod though with the rear end up higher. Does anybody have any advice on how i could get the front end up more without over cranking the torsion bars?

    I did not think that the Tuff Country leveling kit came with a rear leaf. I know when I had my ready lift kit, it only came with front end components. If you want the leveled look, you might have to remove the rear add a leaf.

    I have a completely stock 2010 Silverado 1500. I am thinking about putting in a 6" Skyjacker lift with the Nitro shocks and leaf springs. I eventually plan on putting on some 35's. What do you think guys, yea or nay on the Skyjacker lift?

    My 1997 Suburban 4X4 is going into the shop tomorrow to get a 3" rough country suspension lift put on, excited to finally get it done, it's been a long time coming.
