  1. TB 2" Lift and AAL Inquires

    Lifting
    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...
  2. Reservoir or No-Reservoir?

    Chassis
    I recently bought a new 2" Zone Offroad lift kit (new torsion keys and AAL) to help me out when 4x4-ing. With the lift, I wanted to get new, longer shocks. I immediately turned to Bilstein to see what they had. The 4600 Series Shock is for stock height trucks, so that wouldn't work. So I then...

    Hello there folks of the internet. I come to you once again in a time of need! My 06 Canyon Off-Road has developed an unfortunate habit of intermittently vibrating when I get up to highway speed. It will usually start after I hit a bump on the road and continues for a while until stopping on...

    Lifting
    Hey guys, for the past few weeks I've been looking at various lifting options for my '04 Chevy Colorado Z71 2WD that are not only cost effective, but also are not going to tear up my suspension. Originally my plan was going to go include a Skyjacker Add-a-leaf, MAXX torsion keys, new torsion...

    Chassis
    I've got an 04 I5 ZQ8 Regular cab with 160,000 miles, and i don't know how to tell when or if i should replace any suspension parts.

    Lifting
    Hey I just thought I should throw out a word of caution when ordering new rear Bilstein shocks for your truck. I ordered front and back shock replacements (both Bilstein) from auto anything on October 6th. I received the fronts a week later, and as of right now my "expected shipping date" is...

    Lowering
    So right now, I have a 3/4 drop on springs and blocks. I want to squeeze another inch drop, and my plan is to get some zq8 leafs and some adjustable drop shocks.

  15. Body Vs. Suspension

    Lifting
    So, I'm pretty new to owning a truck, and just recently decided that I wanted to lift it. Mostly, I'm in it for the aesthetics. That is, I like the look of a properly lifted and proportionally lifted truck. I'm not trying to spend thousands immediately, so a body lift appeals to me. On the flip...

    05 GMC Canyon Crew Cab Z71 Off-Road pkg I've been towing 2,700 lb Trailer for work for the last 5 years and the leaf springs have worn down to the common "w" shape. I think I've lost about 2", Which causes a rougher ride and I'm pretty sure the slip yoke is smacking up against the transmission...
