http://www.ridetech.com/info/2011/12/ridetechs-new-2012-shock-line-up/

The shocks are basically Ridetechs coilover shocks, I just run them as a shock, the body is threaded. The shocks alone are a work of art, I honestly did not want to put them on due to how amazing they looked. I will get a picture when I get a chance. The only thing that was bugging me about installing the shocks was that Ridetech's shock mount spacers were made for the smaller width mounts (dunno the actual name) so I had to find some quarter inch thick spacers. I honestly can't complained though due to the fact that I basically got them for "free."

I ordered their new Q-series shocks awhile ago since they were suppose to be in stock by then. The q-series shocks are relatively new still and after waiting a week after ordering from Ridetech, I called them for an update and they told me they were actually not to be shipped out till January of 2013 (I got the shocks well over a month or two ago) so they gave me the choice to either wait or give me their coilover type shocks for the price I paid for the q-series. The shocks are amazing, they also look great as you can see them and all their glory through the spokes of my rim.

The truck rides insanely well for being lowered, it feels exactly as it did stock height which amazed my dad as we have a 2/3 lowered Tahoe which rides like :Plugged:. My friend and I lowered the truck at my shop and he said we did a way better job than the people that lowered the Tahoe. He was amazed that I knew how to take apart ball-joints without tearing the boot up like the "pros" that did the Tahoe previously more than anything.

If anyone has any questions about the truck feel free to ask. I am also going to do projector retrofits soon, I have been talking with Matt at TRS and the people at BlackFlameCustoms on how to go with that.
