    I have to admit this is the week I have been waiting for since I sprained my ankle getting out of the truck. Ya it's okay you can laugh.

    Our truck features a Belltech complete 5/8 lowering kit, Wilwood braking system, Airlift helper bags with a WirelessOne system finished up with a Viair air management system.

    Here is the list of components from Belltech we used to get the 5/8 drop.
    2" Drop Spindles Part# 2511
    2" Lowering Springs Part#12464
    Camber Bushings & Cam Plates Part#4957
    Lowering Struts Part#25003
    Front 1 3/8" Diameter Sway Bar Part#5407
    7" Flip Kit Part#6522
    1" Shackle Part#6700
    C-Notch Kit Part#TBA

    Belltech kept it classic with their notch design for this truck. More info coming soon!

    Stopping power is always a huge plus. The rear of our truck came with a drum. Luckily the guy's over at Wilwood had a solution to get us running a 6 piston front and 4 piston rear system. To achieve the 4 piston rear system we had to purchase GM Part# 19178787 (x2) and GM Part# 15012506 (x4).

    Much better! Love the brakes, they'll look real good sitting behind the future rims going on it.

    Stance on the truck is amazing and I love the brakes.

    Question about the rear brakes though, what wilwood kit is it? I've been wanting to do the wilwoods on mine but have been trying to figure out how to get around the fact that I have drum rears. Did you have to get anything special from wilwood or just the normal 4 piston rear kit and those two parts you listed from GM?

    I like those brakes a lot. Will they fit a GMT800 truck? Or are they specifically designed for the GMT900 trucks?
    Also, how expensive are they?

    Fitment on wilwood website shows they fit both GMT800 and GMT900. Price is around $2100 front and $2000 rear. I want to run them on my truck but have drum rears sadly, hoping those couple parts they showed will let me swap without finding a diff with disc parts

    It is the kit for the 99-06 rear. Front is part# 140-8992-d and rear is 140-9407-d. Brake line part numbers 220-9885 and 220-8998. Yup and the GM parts I listed.

    Actually the kit is for a 99-06. GM kept the brakes the same on the 07+ models in the front. The rear was converted over to a 99-06 truck because it came with disc rear brakes.

    My thoughts exactly! Would love to have a set peeking out from behind some billets but fuuuuuu. I'll have less in bag parts than those brakes cost :wotcat:

    They are definitely nice though. Have you gotten your wheels in yet Kris? Noticed they were 5 lug in the rendering, curious to what they look like as 6 lugs
