if i could afford a $500 welding machine then i would be up to doing the tubbing process myself, but i live in an apartment, so i dont even have a garage.

Been awhile since I posted in here. Sold truck in August after getting it down to about 7/11 drop. Front consisted of 2" Spindles, Belltech Struts, 2" Drop Springs, factory raised upper tubs. Rear Unkown Flip Kit, 2 or 3" blocks with belltech drop shocks. Frame was underbed notched, rear was tubbed and one piece driveshaft with Helpers. Sat on 295/30/24s.















Few different setups but all 4/7

275/55/20s



295/35/24s

so i am going to make a post in here since you guys might know the problem/ solution.

so i have a 2500hd sierra duramax it is lowered around 3" in the front with out any problems with the stock geometry.

in the back i have 3" shackles and the overload leaf removed giving me a total of 4" of drop.

i have ordered belltech 2211ff shocks for the rear but they seem to be over extended a little.

now i could lower the truck a bit more as i have a bit of rake any way but there seems to not be a good/ cheap way to go about this.

plz let me know what you think

below is a pic of the truck and the shock with the truck sitting on the ground.

You could always throw in some shock extenders if you are worried about overextension. There's really no good way to go 4 or 5 in the rear of these trucks. To get there, you'd have to do a flip kit with new hangers and shackles. With yours being a dmax, the components may not even provide the same drop. If you haven't, give a shout to Kris @SportTruckPros and she can probably help you out.

Haven't been on here in a while. It's been a ruff year, moved 5 hours away from home for work, got a new home, new job and all that fun stuff. I've been trying to sell my truck for almost a year but now things are going a lot smoother and I've been falling in love with it all over again.

Had bought 22" casts off of a 2016 Silverado. Bought went stoopid and sold them in the spring withought even putting them on. This autumn I'm planning on going on the hunt for another set. Hopefully spoiling the truck a little for next spring. Here is how it's been sitting for the last 2 years.

That stance looks good man. That thing is begging for some debadging, clear heads and colormatching!
