Am I stuck?

Bought my 2012 ccsb with the 6" procomp lift already installed. So, I don't have the original chunk of the frame that was cut off by the previous owner. If I ever want to go lower, what are my options? Is there a smaller lift I can swap out for that requires the same cuts as my procomp?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

3" lift/leveling kit

I have a 2004 Silverado Z71 4WD and I am looking to lift it. I am looking at getting a 3" lift. I have found lift/leveling kits with just keys and blocks and I have also found lift/leveling kits with lift spindles and blocks. I was wondering which would be better to do and if anyone has done either? Let me know Thanks

1998 Chevy Silverado 2500 2x4 Sway Bar Help!

I took my truck ('98 Silverado 2500 LS 2x4) to my local Chevrolet dealership here in Cincinnati OH because my front sway bar broke. After looking through their channels for about a day, they called me and said they were unable to find the part. Are there any other vehicles (IE the Suburban 2500 or the 2500 4x4/2500 HD 4x4) that would have a sway bar that could fit? Would it be possible to have ...

So I had my wheels off yesterday to polish them, and I noticied that my springs in back were looking a bit flat. My first question is are they supposed to look like that?

(IE supported by a jack ...

Tightening up the handling

I've been poking around trying to find answers on info on doing a 2in lowering kit. I've already eyed up the Belltech kit and have read some really good things about their products. Anything I need to look out for? Are there any good guides or posts for me to get take some notes from.

Again thanks in advance.
