Ok so Magneride shocks are blown and I am going to delete them. I am trying to figure out which directions to go.

This is all for a 2016 Yukon Denali 2wd.

Here are choices:

1. Belltech adjustable struts up front and norcalSS rear drop. This will be around a 1/3 and deleting the Magneride.

2. Bilstein 5100 set at 1.7" and delete. I am not sure if I should crank the 5100s or leave them at zero and then run a bottom spacer?

I am good either way stance wise, altho I think lowered would look better, but would be more parts and a bigger pain to get it all right. Leveled is what I normally do, die to simplicity, but then I am going to want bigger tires on my 22s.

Main goal is to get a better ride than the blown Magneride shocks, improve stance without over doing it, and not having the wife kill me. Any help would be awesome.

If you go with leveled, set the height using the strut instead of the spacer imo
