This will make Roadie happy. :laugh:

Almost exactly 1 year ago I lowered my TB about 2" using rear ground force w/air lift and front TBSS struts/springs. It looked good but rode like sh*t. I felt like cheech bouncing down the road in my lowrider and it wasn't really that low. Before lowering I had stock rear springs w/air lift and Smax spacers in the front (HD Bilsteins on the whole time). I've been thinking about going back and decided today was a good day to get r done. This will be the 5th time now that I've done this. :bonk::weird: It's kinda scary how good I'm getting at it.

Fronts done



Rear in process




All Finished :woohoo:




Back to the alignment shop to readjust everything again.

your TB looks awesome. I'm considering selling mine for a 4x4. Keep up the good work.
Thanks.

Damn! How much lift total?

Eh, I'm not into the offroading. Spacers in front are just to level it mostly.

Besides, I can't because it's


:D

:laugh: Thanks everyone. Drove it today and it so nice to roll over speed bumps w/o dragging the mudflaps. lol

It feels like it's riding nose high right now. Maybe the fronts need to settle or once it's aligned it might drop a little.

It just happened to be clean because I washed it a week ago. :cool:

Here's a couple lowered pics from the last year

Well so far, I'm enjoying the much improved ride. I took the TB on the road this week for work. I do notice the handling isn't as sharp as when lowered. I had it aligned last week and the front end still seems higher than before even with the rear bags aired up some. Maybe I need Z71 rear sprngs? :undecided:undecided:D

I haven't researched the Z71 springs much but how much lift do they give over stock? I don't want it to have a rake!

I believe the consensus is 1.3". That might give you a rake, but you could always get MarkMCs top of strut .75" spacer to fix that:D. Have you measured ground to fender front and rear? Maybe it is an illusion because of the fact that our seats are angled to accommodate for factory rake. I thought my nose was when when I first lifted.

Here's a couple pics I just snapped in the garage. It's hard to tell here, it looks pretty level. I haven't measured yet. I don't know how much air is in the rear bags right now. I had them set at 20 psi after I lifted it back up but haven't checked them lately.
