Default Tahoe Lowering Suspension

Akslopoke and I lowered the front of my Tahoe today. We ran across a problem with the shackles and were unable to get one bolt out of the rear. Where can I take the truck so I can have the rear shackles installed and that damned bolt issue addressed? Also, I need to crank the front up a bit more due to rubbing issues with the wider tires I have from the 20's.

Someone please help me out with a place to take my truck where I wont get bent over a barrel.

THANKS!

Not as lame as I feel... lol.

Dale, we may have to go with a lower spring pack. I may save the baller 24's and hook up a nicer set of 20's or 22's that can tuck.

Um, I think we should convert to 2wd and lower it on bags. Then it would be serious! Or filp kit in the back, that will get another 5 inches or so... maybe too much. The front will require more work, probably lower control arms or similar. You will certainly be going through more tires though as I am not sure you will be able to get the front camber right.
