speaking of which. Shawn1112 Shawn1112 whasts a decently cheap double din touch headunit these days? thinking about ditching the factory shit and going after market to make the wiring easier and have phone hookup capabilities
I usually spend decent coin on my head units. I prefer Pioneer AVIC series.
Probably find one used for a decent amount.

I was thinking the same thing. The truck looks so much better now, doesn't even look like the same truck.

I looked through here again quickly and didn’t really find the answer...

What did you end up doing for lowering the rear? I’m wanting to drop this Yukon I bought for a daily. Going to just drop the front with the torsion bar adjusters. Probably something like 2/3 or 2/4.

I was playing around yesterday. Front ride height will be about what it is in that pic. That’s about 2.5” below stock. Bottom pic is factory height.

Turn the torsion bolts all the way out and like half turn back in or to adjust..

Rear is belltech 3/4 drop springs with the 1" spring spacer stolen from an fbody?? I think ..

Then beltech shocks from ebay during their factory sale for like $175 for the four corners shipped

Don’t know if it’s the same with nbs vs nnbs springs but I got belltech rear springs 3/4 drop and shock extenders pretty cheap on our hoe. The shock mounting points look the same to me.

I’d guess anything advertised for a Yukon/hoe will be lower on yours because it’s an xl
