    Looks great, love those wheels and still kicking myself for passing up a great deal on them from my local CL about a year ago.

    Rear spring spacer. I found one on Amazon but it's like a week and a half shipping. See people referencing summit spacers but can't find on their website.

    been a minute since an update, but I finally got everything with my wheels and tires settled (ton of issues with local shop), and I got the stance how I want it (minus wheel spacers). I ended up swapping out the 1.5" coil spring spacer for a .75" and I am so much happier with the stance.

    I ordered an Escalade cluster about 10 minutes ago and I should have a set of tail lights on the way as well. Then I will do vette servo, tune, clear corners, and get it cleaned up good.

    One day it will be your Suburban's diff colored, shorter twin. Thanks for all the help and advice along the way man.

    Only thing I would change about this thing is for it to be Graystone :)

    :drool:

    Graystone is probably my favorite color..... Although I've never owned anything that color, yet!!!!!

    I always said if I did a repaint on the RCSB, I'd loved to change it to Graystone metallic. NBS SUVs never got that color did they....? Maybe paint the Burb someday.... :hmm: :crazy:

    New mod. Always wanted one so I bit the bullet. Thanks @Countryboy07 for the info.

    Once I get some.more time I will install clear corners (didn't have silicone to seal them), taillights, and detail it.

    It is so hard to find a decent and clean OBS. Also I love the NBS interior and being LS powered.

    Better picture today while grilling.

    That is a better pic. It always looks stubby to me in your sig pic. I like the color a lot.
