Had to share, new suspention on the way
Hey every one I was stoked about this. Just ordered my new suspension for the SS today got all McGaughty's 4/6 drop, got 2" drop spindles and 2" drop keys for the rear I did a 6" flip kit with c-notch. Still have to get the shocks but I will be running 22"s. I know most of you are 4X4 guys and prob hate lowered trucks but I just wanted to share my excitement with yall. Tell me what yall think

Can't wait to see it, and as far lowered trucks go, I'm a fan! My truck is a Z71 4X4 and it's lowered 2/4(keys up front, shackles and block delete in the rear) with plans to be 4/6 (spindles and drop leafs) so it'll be nice to have some company!Adam

Whether lifted or lowered, I think performance is the common thread that ties both camps together. Up or down doesn't matter, as long as it's not the stock GM nose down look that gives me a headache.... & mashing the loud pedal & smoking the tires once in a while is always good1988 Chevy C-3500 2wd (no pic)

Justin, Sounds good to me, even if I have a stock height Z71. Lowered trucks should be able to go around corners better due to lower center of gravity. Maybe bigger sway bars are in order, too.
You have Tru-Trac posi, right. I was thinking of that myself. How is that working out? My Rear is my weak link. I have a 10 bolt rear with stock posi. My friends say I need to upgrade to a 14 bolt with a Detroit Tru-Trac and Strange axels, but that is a lot of money.
Good Luck with the upgrade!Bill M. Blown 2003 Tahoe Z71

BillM, if you upgrade your rear end then the transmission will be the weak link. Its never ending.
