spring/shock install with leveling kit spring/shock install with leveling kit

Had to replace my passenger side half shaft, and that required the removal of the spring/shock assembly. A few years back, I had installed a 2" front leveling kit, which is the blocks that go under the shock on the lower A-Arm. I had a bear of a time reinstalling them. Can't remember them being that difficult when I put them in. Spring needed to be compressed more. All I did was put that side ...

Rear shocks or springs

Truck is a 2014 Silverado 1500 5.3. I am looking for a more firm rear suspension. No Z/71 shocks, just standard ones(whatever that is). I have the big rubber things(forgot what they are called) in place of the stock stopper thingy underneath and they work good for ride height. But when not pulling, It seems like the truck bottoms out easily when you hit a dip or bump. I know with those bigger stoppers in ...

Shocks Shocks

Looking to replace shocks on my truck and have been going back and forth between the Bilstein 4600's and 5100's, I know one is for stock and the other will handle up to a 3 inch lift I believe. I did have the question of the capabilities of each, are they basically the same, so I stopped by the local 4 wheel parts shop to look and talk. Talking to the sales person they steered ...

Suspension Maxx..ever heard of them Suspension Maxx..ever heard of them

I had never heard of this company before, have any of you? Or anyone used their product? It's interesting in that they provide diff drop spacers in the kit to help with the angles along with the usual shock spacers. My buddy said he got this kit, he hasn't installed it yet but was pretty impressed with the quality, definitely pricey but what are your thoughts? This is the kit..

Front end "clunk" '99 nbs stock height 4wd

I replaced the torsion bar mounts thinking that's where it was coming from. Fail.

Oddly, it clunks most often when its raining. It only clunks when I'm turning. It feels like it was coming from where the torsion bars mount is why I replaced those first. (And saw here in a forum)

Can't find anything loose by my inspection. Any ideas?
