    Changing out lower control arm brackets and the welded to frame bolt has broken free. So far it’s the forward bolt on the drivers side. I have not been able to get in there to hold it down while backing it out. It made it half way out before it let go. It’s seems to be a fairly large size maybe...

    I'm in the middle of putting in the rear portion of my 3" lift and I was going to drop the rear end enough to get the springs out. I went to disconnect the swaybar from the links and I'm almost at the end of the threads but the joint and the nut seem to have seized together. I can't undo them...

    So I've been helping my buddy build up his trailblazer and since i don't live near by to measure this and as a group I would like to share and confirm some of the things I've been tinkering with. Current lift is the Z71 tahoe springs and a 1 Inch spring spacer. As of now i see the Spohn Rear...

    Looking for anyone who has or knows where I can get Ground Force 1085, 2 inch rear drop coil springs. They are discontinued and the resellers stock is gone too. There are postings of folks using them. Hoping someone knows of a pair not being used anymore or an unsold pair. Thank you.

    So the upper passenger side trailing arm snapped the other day and in my haste to replace it I didn't pay attention and purchased the trailing arm for the air leveling version. It went in without a problem. I've only had it on the road for about 10 miles but didn't notice any issues. As far as...

    Hello everyone! So I was just working on removing the transmission from my 04 envoy xl, and it came time to remove the rear driveshaft. Its setup with the rear tires on ramps and frontend on jackstands. I went back there and discovered the right strut spring is busted, being displaced from its...

    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...

  12. 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.
