I've been doing a lot of reading on suspension here and not once did I hear anyone mention using Tahoe 4" lowering springs for the rear which if installed with the ss fronts would make it virtually an even ride height. Any reason why?

I used eibach 3" lowering springs for a 2004 tahoe. rides and handles much better.
i would say that another inch would be about perfect

I had read that post, I guess I should have put the 4 in "" lol. I see a lot of people have used the 3" but have not seen anyone use the 4" and I am curious about ride quality and look.

OEM Shocks

So I guess the front shocks OEM are still yellow bilstein but the rears are black. Along with the SS springs, here are the pics...

What part number were those? And are you running factory rear coil springs or air spring?

The TBSS springs are still good for 05 models correct? I have an Ascender but its identical to the TB. Probably a question I don't need to ask.

Well I jumped the gun and bought the springs from here http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/results...umber=15853193

Same part number and it lists them as springs so I figured that was the best deal I could come across.

Looking at the http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=...at=0&_from=R40 for the rear.

It seems as though these are the correct springs from the thread a few posts up. If anyone has better info on if these are the correct springs that would be helpful. I finally get to do some upgrades to my Isuzu, it desperately needs a ride makeover.

Suspension Fixed

I just thought I would let novices like myself know, that after reading every thread and article about my Envoy air shocks. I tried the little 5/32 Tee Union, it worked well for a week, then failed nightly. I finally went to my local NAPA told them my problem, the salesman recommended a pair of springs for $84. He printed me a picture and a spec sheet for these springs. I went home and did more research, I counted the loops and compared them to everyone on the net selling them(including strutmasters). The closest price was $164.

I finally decided to give NAPA a shot. I also purchased load leveling shocks for $128 a pair. I installed them both today, it took me two hours, start to finish. The Envoy sits a little high for my taste (salesman warned me it would). I drove it tonight for 10 miles, and it feels great.

If anyone has any questions about part numbers here is my email. [email protected]

Dimension of SS strut assembly

Does anybody know the dimension of the SS strut assembly tip to tip? My tired LS struts measure 18" to the top of the mount plate . I figured the stem of the actual strut maybe a different length depending on the Manufacturer.
