    Default 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!

    Your truck will look great with the new kit. McGaughty's is great stuff. Is your truck AWD or rear drive?

    LMAO, I can see your truck doing burnouts right now...

    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 good

    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!

    Cool

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

    I am in the process of getting some sway bars for the SS now. I have a GM 14 bolt with a Detroit Tru-Trac and absolutly love it, its a little bouncy but not to bad but its cool having both wheels push you though. The stock GM G80 locker isnt bad at all untill you start putting some big HP and TQ numbers to it. For now just get you a good 14 bolt with some 3:73 and a stock G80 and you will be fine
