Took vacation & went to my buddies house for the week to do some mods!! Lowered about 4 inches in the front & 5 in the rear using a mix of Belltech, DJM & McG parts along with BT sway bars. Also replaced almost all the front suspension, upper & lower control arms with ball joints, wheel hubs, tie rod end links. Watched a lot of TWA Motorsport videos on youtube for info on doing the "free travel mod" & just doing the overall lowering along with parts lists. Also replaced both rear shocks with new Arnotts air shocks & a new compressor. I did mess up & not mark where the original truck sat at on the load sensors so not sure if anyone has a measurement on the frame of where a stock truck sits so I can fix that. Its got a little lean right now that I think is from the sensors not being where they should be. Rear install was pretty straight forward. Front went great until we tried to take the struts apart to install the McG drop bracket & both struts broke apart. Currently replaced with just some carquest regular struts until I can get new z55 struts in then Ill swap back. Got a little "carolina squat" after the first night?!?! Truck definitely rides a little more "sporty"

Measurements from the ground to the top of the wheel arches after 2 days of driving:
DF 35.5" - 31.6"
DR 36.75" - 32.4"
PF 35.6" - 31.25"
PR 37.25" - 33.6"

Looks good. What headlights are those and do you like them? I've got a 2010 and replaced the taillights but haven't pulled the trigger on fronts because all you hear is the poor quality and/or output. Thanks!
