    Wanting to lower my tahoe limited. Saw Djm has 4/4 lowering kit but I also found a western chassis that drops it 4 in the front and 5.5" in the rear which would you guys prefer or do you guys know any other lowering kit that can go this low? btw still have the stock 16 ronal wheels the limiteds came with

    LOVE your Limited (think I've told you that before :))...I think either one, DJM or Western Chassis, would work out. I've dealt directly with Western Chassis for the lowering parts for my '87 and they are top notch and have a top notch product so I can personally vouch for them. I've heard decent things about DJM but have yet to try out any of their products so take all that for what it's worth :)

    Hope I made the right decision I bought Belltech 2" to 3" pro coil spring set for the front and Mcgaughys 2" hangers + 2" shackles for the rear and 4 Belltech street performance shocks was this a good choice?

    Nothing wrong with any of those products based on reviews that I've seen over the years.
    I'm personally running BellTech spindles and sway bars (front and rear). No issues with them at all.

    Just a heads up.... with the driver side hanger, you'll have to drop the gas tank to remove/install the frame bolts.

    Gorgeous Tahoe man. How did you install go? Was always curious about the belltech. I have the DJM kit and have had no issues.

    Only got the shackles installed and rear shocks. I actually returned the hangers. I'm gonna do a flip kit instead, anyone know where I can get A flip kit for a 4 door? all I keep finding are the ones for 2 doors or is it the same?
