    2005 Escalade front clipped
    shaved door handles
    2 tanks, 2 compressors, 2 switches
    tuckin 22's

    Like I said new guy here, go easy on me!! HAHA

    Welcome from NY!

    Looks like you have a decent amount of camber up front. Check the threads on here, there's a lot good info on suspension geometry and how to minimize camber when laid out.

    I found the thread I was thinking of. It's worth a read through if you're planning on tackling the work yourself

    Awesome! Be sure to start a thread on it and don't hesitate to ask questions. A few guys on here know quite a bit about bagged suspension.

    Will do, Im trying to sort out the things needed to get it back to a fully functioning truck first. i.e. rewiring the bags, replacing tires and putting the interior back together along with finishing the shaved doors and fitment of the escalade front clip. Itll get there. The P.O. did a pretty janky job on the things he tried to fix.

    Bug looked sweet and truck seems like a fun project to make right.

    Not a big deal, next time use [​IMG] also above the text box there is a little picture of a tree if you click that you can put your image link in and hit ok and it automatically puts the codes around it.
