    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.

    Anyone notice the newer generation trucks seem taller? My mom's boyfriend has a newer generation Ford F150. I have a 4" lift on my Burb. And parked next to the F150, it seems the F150 is just as tall.

    Yeah that is true, Even my 2500hd with 33s on it was the same height as the F150s .My F250 sits up there though:happy:

    Just wondering, is there a reason for lifting the front more then the back?
    Thanks Terry

    On the trucks the tail end of the truck sits higher so when the truck is loaded the truck sits level. So the rear of the truck doesn't need as much lift to level out the truck.

    So if you wanted to lift it, but you still wanted/needed to carry loads probably be best to lift the front and the rear the same, is this correct?
