Default My 2011 Escalade Build Thread!!
ff you guys know me you know I like modding my vehicles..... even if I don't have the truck yet lol. I will be using this truck to tow my ctsv to the track also so no 3600 stall or heads/cam or nitrous on this one just basic mods.

We should be finishing up the paper work this week and truck will be getting shipped from Arizona to me here in san francisco in about a week so I have 8-10 business days to get rolling here.

Truck is a 2011 Brand new Escalade 2wd (dont need awd here less issues) and Galaxy Grey color with ebony interior.

Parts ordered today

2/3-4 kit from yours truely
http://www.tbssowners.com/store/inde...d&productId=87


Rear DJM hardware kit.
http://www.tbssowners.com/store/inde...&productId=125

I also will be comparing the belltech vs djm shock extenders to see if one shock extender is longer from center to center hole. On a autoride truck being longer would be better to let the truck sit lower. Never did this before so might as well get all the info out there.

Front/Rear DJM Swaybar Kit
http://www.tbssowners.com/store/inde...&productId=105


Rear Spohn Del Sphere Panhard Bar

with 3 or more inches in rear I like using the djm kit . I hate the way the rear swaybar swings down but the drop will still work without the djm hardware kit.

The belltech rear kit rides best out of any kit out there thats why im using it on my truck.

Thanks!!!! I always like these trucks and doing so many of them over the years lowering and wheels I think actually having one will let me give full feedback on the parts I use.

My wife will drive the truck daily (like our tbss) and this truck wont be as crazy but I will make it look better. I feel as a vendor in our community to have the same trucks many of us do will give you guys a better feeling about me and what I do here.

Plus you all know I like modding my rides so might be some trial and error on my part but Fuck it thats all part of the game right lol
