    So I'm finally getting around to leveling my Suburban. I'm using a spacer on the top of the strut to get a 2.5 in lift (and I'm adding 1.5 in spacers out back). I'm also adding bilstien 5100s all around. The fronts will be on the stock/lowest notch. I have to buy new upper arms because my ball joints are worn out.

    My question is if I go with lifted arms like the ones linked below am I in danger of over extending the CVs at full droop?
    Anyone see issues with this parts combo?

    No you will be fine with them not over extending. I wouldn’t go higher than 2.5” on front if you’re 4wd.
