Belltech Lowering struts, raise 2'' or lower 1-2'' they have different spacers for height. 110 each

KBEE Coilovers They are fully adjustable and offer better ride over the belltechs but cost 3 times more. 600-650

Belltech/KW Coilovers Fully adjustable, slightly better ride and slightly better quality than the KBEE's. More expensive as well, 800-900.

Just checked out a set of Bell Tech Street Performance drop struts on ebay and the listing is for 04-07 only, anyone know why? Is there a difference in design between 02 and 04? Part number is 25011.

Thanks

what are the MOOG part numbers?

I've tried looking stuff up, but on several places it seems they mix SS and non-SS together.

I opted for bilsteins in the rear. much beefier than i though over the stock SS ones. they seem to work pretty well over the stockers. I'm still on the fence for what to do on the fronts though.

I will post pics of how she sits now. I HIGHLY recommend the setup i went with absolutely lovely. cheers


ps. as far as ride goes... it may not be as cushy as a stock tblaze, but by no means is it harsh whatsoever.
What Tahoe springs exactly did you go with? Pics?

can the ss rear shocks be installed and aligned first without doing the fronts for an LS? Wondering if this makes a big difference or may post a problem? Oh FYI, 20s are installed.
