    2012 Very nice, hope he does send pics.

    But for my Tahoe, im at 32" all the way around, im level all around. I have rear hardware kit. I don't have helper bags though.
    What helper bags would you recommend, as i know nothing about those.

    So i should be fine cutting 2 loops. Would my shocks need to be changed. They are bilstiens.

    In rear if your level now do you want to sit lower than the front?

    In rear you need the djm hardware kit with shock extenders and a shock that is 20.5 inches long.

    How can I cut my 2" lowering springs from my Tahoe cuz the ends of the springs are very close so if I cut them I will have a big wide hole
