    Hello when i bought this truck someone had already replaced the stock struts with a heavy duty set and they are much to stiff. Im looking for something definitely softer. What would you prefer? I dont do much towing.

    I have a '03 TB. Replaced upper/lower arms, easy-struts, links, tie rods, ball joints. The control arms I bought were Moog and the lower control arms come with the bracket already installed to the CA. Took it to Belle for the alignment and to patch the FP tire. Belle Tire said my CA brackets...

    Hi folks, I've got a 2002 trailblazer that I'm working on, it's my speedy beater, and I'm looking to install the 2 3 lowering springs, but all the tutorials online just replace the spring and strut assembly, they don't show how to put on JUST a spring. Would anybody be able to tell me how to...

  5. OEM Issues
    Hey all I recently did my rear end links and sway bar bushings on my 03 Trailblazer. I think a missed something, because on one side, I can see the bolt where it connects to the frame moving up and down as I rock the car. I cranked it down as tight as I could on the repair, and checked the...

    Have an 03 TB with 151k miles on it. About 5 years ago I had the lower control arm brackets replaced. Fast forward to this week, and I went to check out the alignment of the tires because there was some uneven wear on the tires (ended up having to replace them). The alignment guy said he...

    Has anybody done a 3" body lift on the Envoy XL? I'd love to do a body lift but i'm having a hard time finding any info on it for the XL specifically. Im thinking it would be exactly like the normal one but maybe a few extra parts are needed.

    Hello gentlemen and ladies… I'm a new/recent owner of a 2008 Trailblazer and new to the forum…glad I found you. I'm inclined to do most of my own repairs and maintenance, but need lots of sound advice given that I haven't turned a single wrench on her to date. So...I'm pretty certain I need...

    Hi. My 03 envoy has 170k and original struts. Do I keep the springs or buy the combo strut set with springs? It looks easier to change with the springs already on. I assume i can rent the compression tool at Autozone. My concern is the new springs could be sub standard. Now, are Sensen...

    I'll be as to the point as possible: Sound coming from passenger side. When hitting bumps. Loud clanking at General speeds (15-50). Under certain circumstances the clanking can turn into a grinding. Also noted a card in the bike spokes noise upon reversal only from time to time. I've replaced...
