    Anyone used the Zone UCAs? Thinking about Bilstein set at 0, 2.25" spacer, and zone UCAs for the Sierra. Probably end up with 285/65R18 Toyo AT2s...

    Thinking about getting BB Autocal as well... both vehicles need a tune. Figured I could do through the mail and get an update when they are here later this year.

    Don't know about the zone arms, but I've got the rough country arms and they've been doing fine for a year now.

    Toyos ordered. Airaid MIT ordered. BB Autocal on the way.


    Going to do some more maintence on the Tahoe. With the wife puttering around on errands the gas mileage has plummeted. The range restrictions make it seam like we are always filling up. Being that it's the family cruiser/vacation mobile this is no bueno.

    And I really want go fast parts for the truck... :catacid:

    TGC ordered, found some used Kings but dude will not deal. Tires mounted.

    In other news, I need to figure out the Trans cooler on the Tahoe. :at2:

    2" TGC and Welds on. May need to replace the shocks all around but next plans are tune, tint, exhaust tip, and really want to put my old Xtant subwoofer in but we'll see.

    Airraid tube and Moroso catch can. Thinking about swapping wheels on the vehicle next. Then tune(s) and tint, followed by some electronics for the Sierra.

    I was researching LSA but don't want to deal with the hassle (and it seems the deal hinges on a cheap blower that are getting scarce).

    Update...

    New LED tails because the stocks had moisture. Swapped over colormatched rear bumperets. Swapped to LED bulbs up front, they didn't have a good throw so went back to halogens. Halogens burned out so going to run the LEDs again, fk. Pulling the Coilovers and UCAs of the Tahoe and taking it back to stock. Plan is to get the shocks rebuilt and swapped over to the Sierra and then look for a new suburban. Tired of having four sets of wheels and tires on and off vehicles, modding two at once without a no nonsense DD was a mistake :at2:

    Well eventful weekend. Swapped in stock coils and some new OE UCAs (ripped the boot on one removing during the original instal), was going to have a shop do it but they were quoting $1000+. Went to get it aligned at the Goodyear shop (only one open on Sunday) and passenger wheel bearing is going out. Shop quoted $560 to swap it out to... dafq... ordered a timken unit for ~$100 and now gotta find a shop to swap it in. Tired of spending time wrenching in between breaks chasing kids, projects like this take forever. Just want to sell this thing so we can move on to a newer vehicle. Anyone need a Tahoe?

    In other news, Shock rebuilds have been quoted at $100-150 a shock (pre-shipping), which was more than I expected. Still need to decide what I want to do there, wish I lived in Cali where shock rebuilds were common. I don't trust the giant lifted truck shops around here so not a lot of options. Also need to get ahold of Cognito and order new hardware/bjs to rebuild the arms; everything looks fine but rather swap it out while I have it out.
