    Hey guys, new to the forum, I searched around and couldn't find much. I'm terrible at the whole search thing though. My gf wants me to stop tinkering with my truck and play with hers for a while. She has an 08 Tahoe 2wd. This whole 2wd thing is new to me haha I have a big lifted truck and were thinking of doing the opposite with hers. We don't want to lower it, just level the rear with the front. How much drop would I need in the rear? And is there a kit that everyone prefers to use (forum sponsor maybe)??

    Also, we are thinking of putting 20 inch wheels on it, I would like the wheels to sit flush with the fenders and not stick out like a lifted truck. So if youre looking down the side of the truck everything is flush. I hope I'm being clear about what I'm talking about. Anyway, what offset would I need for that? And what's a good tire size to fill up the fender wells nicely, but with no rubbing?

    Thanks in advance for your help guys, I'm a total newb in this department.

    Welcome to the site! I don't have much info' on the NBS Tahoes, but there are a lot of folks on the site that do. I do know that 20's are optional on the Tahoe, so the "stock" offset should be adequate. As for leveling, most kits raise the front, but dropping the back would still level it out. Good luck and I'm sure you will get plenty of help.
