And so it begins.

Check with Mike at SE to see if his spring package is available yet. 12 years since I did mine with Eibachs all around, so not sure what's out there any more. Might be something available for the Trailblazer SS.

Did the crewcab with Ground Force spindles and adjustable shocks up front. It's been 6 years on those and still working.

If Mike doesn't have anything available, I think your best contact is Tony at Norcal SS. He supplied the new upper A arms that took care of my alignment issue. If you do replace the upper A arms, get a set of Mike's urethane bushings and re-do the lowers with new bushings at the same time.

These are two of Tony's threads. Second one talks about a DJM 2/4 drop kit. Way back, Tony was pretty vocal about how bad Eibach springs were, but his upper arms are good quality.

Dicktator had a thread on replacing the bushings all around, but your uppers will be new on the DJM arms. His old ones didn't look very good.

I'll try to find that thread.

If you do get the DJM A arms, call me - I can steer you through the inner fenderwell modifications.

My friend Steve would like to keep the OEM stance of his SSR, but lower front & back equally.
Same slight rake to front, just lower overall.
Any good ideas for getting it done?

Correct on the height change. I am still working the issue with the spring manufacturer. No springs yet

Check BellTech look under Trailblazer, adjustable from 1-2" in front and around 2" in the back.
Have them on my SSR for about 2 years, no complaints.

Do you have to change rear shocks with the Bell Techs? Will the Bilstein shocks work on the rear with lowered springs?
