I want a lowering kit for my 2012 Chevy Colorado want about a 2 inch in the front and 3 in the back. Also I want it to ride like factory are close buy it and would like to use stock coils. What should I get and add prices please
Should be close to stock. You're not replacing any springs, and a 2/3 really isn't that drastic of a change. Anything more than that and you will start to notice a difference and may encounter some bottoming out and rubbing.
Factory shocks yes, no problem. Only thing you'll have to do is grind off the sway bar link on the control arms so that you can mount the new drop ball joints. The new ball joints will have a new mounting point for the sway bar.
With the JTR stuff in relation to the 09+ trucks; if you use the pinion shims and bolt it to the drop block. Then the cap on the screw is not 15mm it is 9/16, which is 14.029mm. Does anyone know exactly what the hole measurement is on the bracket that is on the rear end? I want to see how much slop will be in there. My guess is approx. .030". It isn't much, but if things move around due to bumps or things aren't tight enough, then it will move which will cause wear on the bracket that is on the rear end. The cap on the screw is going to be harder than the metal on the bracket. Then hole will get bigger over time. I can see putting some shim stock in there to keep everything centered. Just curious as to what thickness.
