How much do the H2 springs run? Did they settle in at all? Are you still at about 2" of lift in the rear?

Thanks,
The H2 springs were about $200 a pair from GM Parts Direct. I have the part numbers if you need them. No settling issues, still 1.5 to 2 inches of lift.
For the front I doubt you would have any trouble using heaver torsion bars. The Suburbans with autoride have the lightest torsion bars in them from the factory. You could upgrade to 3/4 ton truck ones and easily gain front heigth. I plan to do this but have other projects in front of this. I run 285/75x16" tires on this truck with stock wheels and have no rubbing issues.
My wife somehow blew up the G80 Gov-lock on this vehicle, so it now has a open carrier with a Lock right easy locker in it. Have only used it on dirt roads and at my buddys ranch in Wyoming. My wife went up a road that normally requires 4x4 in 2wd with the new locker!
