My truck needs a suspension rebuild and shocks. Can any of you truck guys suggest a good rebuild kit? This is my daily driver so I don't need anything over the top like airbags, etc. Just a good bushing kit and shocks/springs for the F/R.

Nice looking truck.
What are your plans for the truck? Lower or keep it stock height?

I need to clean it up a bit and rebuild the suspension, possibly lower it little a couple inches. Its been my commuter/workhorse for the last 2 years so it could use some love. It had a bodykit on it at one point and the previous owner (my buddy) ripped it off so I need to clean that up also. Got any pics of your Tahoe? I've been thinking about selling my truck and buying one of those.

If you're going to sell it some time down the road, replace the parts with factory or AutoZone parts. No need to dump the dough in it if youre planning on getting rid of it.
If you are keeping it, they sell some decent kits that arent that expensive and include everything for a nice drop and ride.
A good claybar cleaning sounds in order

My Tahoe has been taken off the road. It had a coolant leak which turned into an intake manifold gasket which turned into a spider assembly failure. I bought a new spider assembly and (with my luck) got a defective assembly and now have to order a new one. I aired the rear out and am also getting ready to put the drop spindles on and lay out a torque arm rear suspension. You're lucky to have a pickup, you have tons of options for your rear set up.
My biggest plan is to build an aluminum 5.3 in the 5.7s place. I have the short block but dont have the time right now.

With about 90lbs of air in the helper bags


No air
