    Was wondering if anyone had any input on the best route to go for lowering my tahoe. It’s a 2013 PPV, and it comes lower than usual and I’m putting OEM 22” wheels on it. I want to lower the rear end to match the front. Maybe lower the front a tad, not much at all if so. I know Belltech makes the 2/4 drop kit but I don’t think I need to drop the front 2 inches. Any ideas?

    Well the 2/4 drop is new struts and springs right? So its gonna drop the front a tad since you're getting rid of the ppv springs

    If I were you, i'd put on the 22s first with stock tire, then look at your fender gaps and do some measurements. From what I understand, the smaller tire of the PPV (265-60-17) drops the truck about an inch, and the back is about an inch lower with the suspension. The front is stock height just like the LS/LT/LTZ tahoes, from what i understand. The combo of the tires and shorter springs in the back is what lower the truck.

    That's what I am considering, I am waiting on my wheels to get powdercoated and tires and I'm going to see how it fits first..then decide
