    blackmonte, does your Suburban have Autoride? That ride height looks real good. So what does that equate to, about 2" up front and 1" in the rear? Do you have any other pics?

    As much as I'd like to do a full suspension lift, realistically I can only go about 3" or else I won't fit in the garage.

    Yep right on 2-2.5" front and 1" rear ride is still good a little firmer ride but I like it. I will post some more for you. No Autoride here

    That looks really good. I wonder if that is an option I can go with or if Autoride will say no-no.....?

    Your truck looks great, ever thought about putting a meatier tire under there?

    Yep I hate the 245s just bought this Suburban a month ago, sold my 2500hd . I wanted to put 315/70/17s on it but looks like 285/70/17s will have to do. I know I read somewhere to put a resister in place and run regular shocks for Autoride.
