Re: 2WD 2DR Pics go here>>>>

That Tahoe looks good. Much better with the 4/6 drop.

I'll post some updated pictures of mine in the next few days.

I got my smoothie bumper, grill, and black chrome speed grill inserts ready to go.

The bumper is getting powder coated, and the grill painted at the shop right now.

I think it is a bit of all 3 yet none of them cause there is no cure, remedy or fix!!!!

So how did you drop your truck? what components did you use and how does it ride?

Re: 2WD 2DR Pics go here>>>>

Ya i agree no fix.

Tahoe was done with 2" spindles and 2" springs in the front flip kit in the rear.
The ride is not too bad really.

Truck was done with 2" springs in the front and shackles and hangers in the back. The ride is just like factory I think.

The pinion angle is the angle your drive line sits at. Usually you can fix the pinion by shimming the rear end.

If your pinion is off, you'll get vibration while driving.

Good luck man. It literally took me years to finally find a clean 2dr 2wd.

2 wheel drives are like non existent.

I second that everything I have is lowered. Not enough snow or ice or mountains around to need to raise one in my opinion.
