When I get it all done I'll take some good pictures. Still has a lot of work in my book. Do you do cars and coffee in OKC?

Here it is. Rides great, probably better than stock.

Ground Force 1.3" Springs
Belltech 2" Spindles
Belltech Flip Kit
Belltech Sport Performance Shocks
Belltech Rear Swaybar
275/45/20 Pirelli's on 2015 LTZ wheels

This truck is pretty clean considering it is 17 years old and has a salvage title. "Restoring" it has been fun. Just like the 2002 I had in college that I was driving when I got married 10 years ago. Now 33 with four kids (two sets of twins 4 & 5m) it's got some real nastalga to it for me. And my 4 year old boy loves it.

Yeah as far as my searching goes I've never seen them on a NBS RCSB! Anything over 275's might rub because of the offset and 9" wide. Mine rides great though.

Good to know, I've been unsure of tire size and figured I'd just stick with the 275/45/20.

But I'm only doing 2/4...

I got them on my NNBS, but they look good on yours.

Do you hit a lot up front? Pretty damn low

It's 5", haven't driven out of the neighborhood, but I don't anticipate any issues. Also planning on going back to the original style air dam and fog lights soon. That dam looks good in pictures but came off a salvage truck and is pretty rough also the lights are pretty rough and cloudy.

66 SWB fleetside is my favorite truck and grill of all time. That font is cool, I'd love to have a miniature "Chevrolet" in chrome letters and that font on the corner of the tailgate.

I know I'm gonna hear "told ya so" but anyway. 1/2 coil cut equals 1"? Now that the 2" springs are in front I want an inch or so more and I want both sides to sit equal. So I figured cut drivers side to 3" drop and try to get passenger side as close to equal as possible then set the rear at 5" since the McG flip kit will go 4,5 or 6.

Bumping my post here! Also, can I get by with 5" in the rear without notch or helpers. I only haul heavy stuff once a year maybe and usually not far.

I believe 1/2 coil is 1". And you should be fine at 5" without a notch. It'll bottom out when you haul anything heavy though.

Forgot your truck was a crew cab. It'll be close at 5". You would definitely be better off notching unless you wanna get helper bags.
