Sure it's got 170k on it.
But it came from Florida, and it's a 5.3 2wd
Clean clean clean! Mmm

Plans? Remember all those parts I had for blue balls? Welllllll they'll end up in this here Essssalade.IMG_20190227_140510.jpegIMG_20190227_140518.jpegIMG_20190227_140527.jpegIMG_20190227_140536.jpeg

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?

Normally 4" rear springs with 2" front spindles

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 :rofl:


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.
