    So I am tired of the cranked to level ride and look with my burban. Thinking of just doing a mild drop. My googling ability is lacking as of late because I am not finding the info I need. I am trying to find the best option for it. The rear is really where my questions come in. I am thinking 2/4 with just some stock 17s as I have them already.

    2/4 from Kris at Sport Truck Pros. Don't have a pic with the 16s but I'll try to remember to grab one this weekend. Rides pretty good with the 16s, rode like shit with the 22s.

    Stock keys turned all the way down. It's ok, but won't quite align and bottoms every once in a while. I sprung for sway bars over spindles, should've gotten spindles

    I guess I should add, mine is basically the same as Brandon's. One key has like 3 turns on it just to even out the truck, the other has no bolt. 3" mcgaughys springs using the spacer, Belltech SPs all around, Belltech sway bars front and rear. Truck didn't have autoride even tho it's an SLT

    Stock keys. Mine won't quite align the way it is. Close, but not quite. Drop keys certainly wouldn't work well

    Stock keys in ours as well.

    The autoride was still connected. But, with new shorter, straight llinks in the autoride link mounts. I didn't pay attention and eventually the e-brake cable rubbed through the DS autoride shock bag. So I just pulled the fuse for the compressor. It rode "ok", but a bit of sway on highways. Next I would've done replacement shocks.

    I think the tires on those 17s were oem size. 265/70/17s.

    My compressor is rotted out. Like there is a hole in the housing
