    Looks REALLY good. What amount of backspacing did you go with? I also want to run 275/60R20 tires on a 3-4 inch lift and don't want to trim anything if it can be avoided.

    Just got the suburban back with the fabtech 4" lift. Was really hoping it would sit level, fabtech said it would and so did the installer, they said give it some break in miles and see if it doesn't settle out some in the rear. Kept the factory 22's and went with nitto g2's 33x12.5 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Wow that front end is low! No way that is going to ever settle that far. Get some pics of front end parts so we can see whats going on.

    Here's the pics of the front end. Really wish the front was as high as the rear! But couldn't justify $2k more for 2"
    *Edit - would help if I add the photos!

    Looks like you could just take out that 1" (?) rear spacer.

    Pics of front end look great. Everything seems setup correctly and max height without doing full suspension lift. Could you post some pics of the rear now?

    Right now my thoughts are to lower rear to match front height but if you don't like that option we could get the zone off-road front end 4" lift kit. That will get it in height with the rear for sure. I'm wondering if some of the rear parts are for the 6" kit or something to make it that much difference.

    The zone kit would that mess with the magnetic suspension? What parts would it use to stack? I have this love kit that was taken off to put this lift on, not sure if could use either of these to lift the front up any more with out over stretching the front suspension [​IMG]

    If fabtech said it would sit level and it doesn't I would send them those pictures and tell them it make it sit level. To me that's crazy rake and I wouldn't pay if I wasn't happy. I think that front end needs to be 2-3" higher.
    It just looks leveled in the front. Can u measure from ground to fender and someone with a level kit can chime in on what their height is?

    Luckily I took these measurements before I sent it in... 2.5" level kit is what was on it with factory tires.

    These measurements are front and rear, before and after
    Front: 37.5 to 39.25
    Rear: 37.5 to 41.5

    Full photo is with level kit on
