Lowered my 12

Well I finally got the truck lower like I have been talking about for 4 months now. here is the before leveled pic and the after lowered pic. I used the Belltech lowering struts set at 2 inches down and the Belltech 2 inch shackles and rear shocks and removed the block. All in all it went down 3 inches all the way around when I pulled my level spacers out. Feel free to comment ...

Rough country 2 1/2" leveling kit

I just bought a Rough Country 2 1/2" leveling for my 08 silverado. I took the spacers out if the box and the top spacer and bottom spacer together measure 1 3/8" ! Did I get the wrong kit? The box does say 2 1/2"leveling but I don't see how spacers that are 1 3/8" are going to raise it 2 1/2". Anyone else have this problem?

Trail Master Suspension???

Anyone heard of Trail Master Suspension? This price seems almost too low... And most other kits I've seen come with front shocks, not rear. I may be mistaken though.

Also - what is a Fabtech Budget Lift? Price is good, the brand is well-known, but is it worth it? Lemme know, thanks fellas.
