  1. How-To/Tutorials/Reviews/Service Bulletins
    Hello so I think I posted this accidentally on the introduction thread so no one got back to me but I was wondering if anyone has gone through the same issue as me putting on a 2 inch spacer. This one mounts on the top of the strut but when I put it on and try to get it back in the bottom end of...

    Can anyone please help me with getting this strut rotated? I thought it was as easy as putting the spacer on the top and putting it back in but I guess you have to rotate the strut 180 degrees? Do I have to put it in a vice, use a spring compressor and pry the top rotating it clockwise 180 or...

    I just bought a 2011 Chevy Colorado z71 2wd and I’m looking for the best way to lift it. It has the torsion bars but I don’t want to crank them too much. I would like to be able to fit 33s without too much trimming and without too rough of a ride
  4. Lifting
    I recently bought new leaf springs because my old pair were sagging. I also got a new AAL and Torsion Bar lift kit. But today I was putting the AAL up to the new leaf springs just to see if they’d fit, and it looks like the AAL has a lot of curve at the end of each tip. I will provide photos...

    I've been browsing the forums for an hour now and haven't got the exact answers I want for my questions. Basically, I have new torsion keys and an AAL kit from Zone Offroad for a 2" lift, but I'm not sure what I need to do with all the components in the suspension system. Here are my questions...
  6. Wheels & Tires
    I own a 2wd extended cab 2005 GMC Canyon and I’m looking to install a 3 inch lift. I’m curious as to what size wheel and tire setup anyone with a 3 inch lift is running so I know how big I can go without major rubbing/trimming. Let me know what you’re running! :)
  7. Aesthetics
    I have a black 2008 Canyon SLE Offroad and i think plastic/chrome combination on the bumbers can be seriously improved. Im thinking of getting a roll of gloss black wrap from vvivid to go over the front and rear bumpers, and maybe even do the chrome grill. This way, they'll look like they were...
  8. Chassis
    I have a 2006 GMC Canyon 2wd 3.5l. I have the lift kit and I was wondering if anyone had info on the spacers for the front shocks, specifically how you’re able to fit the shocks with the spacer installed because I tried and I did not have any threads left so I wonder if I need to do this. Or...

    I have a set of CST Z85 5” lift spindles. These were the set used on BADLANDER’s midlift setup. They are in great shape and have been sitting in a tote since I bought them because after I bought his setup I went a different way with my truck. They were never driven on. He was able to make the...

    I just bought a 09 Colorado LT w/ 285/65/18R tires. Of course the dealer had no idea about the suspension modifications that may or may not have been done by the previous owner. Needless to say I'm curious to know 1. how much lift it has in order to fit these tires and 2. how to help with the...
  13. Interior
    Okay so I'm looking for black interior trim bezels. So I found some on the GM website but it says they fit 07-12. What's the difference between 04-06 and 07-12 regarding this.

    Hello Nation, Someone bought a Colorado back in 2007, drove it for 3000 miles and returned it. It's sad face and sad story broke my heart. I purchased that truck and I've been the proud owner of my '07 2WD 2.9l 4cyl Ext Cab Colorado LS now for 9 years. Just two weeks ago I decided to give it...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to 355 and I've been looking into a 2 to 3 inch lift for my 07 z85 2wd. Read a few threads and thought I would ask for suggestions to see what would be an affordable (but good) lift. Little tight on cash so anything $300 and below would be perfect. Not good with cars so...

    Hey everybody this is my first post on this site looking for some advice. Has anyone with a standard transmission put in a hockey puck body lift? Is it a good idea or should I try buying a proper 1.5 body lift kit. I've seen on this site people have done 1.5 body lifts on standards but I'm too...
