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. :undecided

yes sir i did go with moog ss springs in the front. lowered it about .75-1" I also went with rear 3" lowering springs for a tahoe (which lowered the tblaze only about 1.3". The front shocks are acdelco bilstiens for the SS. and the rear i went with bilstien HD shocks. Perfect ride hieigth, more towing capacity and MUCH MUCH MUCH better handling. I will post pics of how she sits now. I HIGHLY recommend the setup i went with absolutely lovely. cheers :D


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.

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?:undecided

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.

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.cfm?singlepart=1&partnumber=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=3887.520&_sacat=0&_odkw=369-3887.520&_osacat=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]
