Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

I dropped my tahoe with ground force springs and i bought my 03 gmc and it looks to be dropped with just springs. I do not like the ride is a spindle drop that much better? I would like a little more space from the bump stops.

Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

Drop spindles will give you stock suspension geometry at a lower ride height. So drop spindles ride like stock.

Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

Im probably gonna do a static drop and was wondering whats a good drop if I still want to occasionally tow a boat or etc. Would like to go as low as possible.

Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

Not a fan of the step beds...but I dig the HD hoods, and I really like using factory wheels on these trucks. Got any pics of trucks with these newer LTZ wheels?

Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

That's sharp. I think the LTZ wheels (old and new style) look good on anything.
