For some reason I thought all GMT800 Escalades came with 6.0's....?

I know all Yukon Denali's did?

Common misconception.
They didn't make many of these things in 2wd, most were down south

I think you just need to do like a 4/5 or 5/6 drop on it. Can’t wait to see how fast this thing goes. How’s the inside?

That’s what I have. I was going to go lower but since my wife is driving it I don’t trust her from not fucking up the bumper.

My caprice thread has a picture of my hoe right now. 2” drop spindles and beltech 5305 springs at 3” with 265/70/17 tires. Was pretty level at 4” but looked saggy to me without take so went back to 3”. Also have helper bags I run 5psi in. Also have the bump stop bracket cut off

Gets you more than just springs.


I bought my belltechs with relocation brackets for like $200 on eBay. Read bad things about any other spindle besides bell tech so ponied up like $150 for those. Could just run springs at 4 and then turn those adjusters down more with spindles


I need to fix my sway bar end links still and I’d like to get an adjustable panhard.

Assumed you’d go no name junk


Reading all the threads of no name spindles causing alignment issues swayed me away. Saw multiple people say they were different left to right too

I never had stock springs in back but the belltechs ride nice and smooth and bags insure no hard bottom outs and can add for heavy Home Depot loads.

Wife also thinks it rides nicer than anything else we’ve owned.
