What about shocks with a 3/3 kit on my Tahoe

Submitted on 2011/11/14 at 3:36 pm

I am considering your 3/3 lowering kit for my 2001 tahoe. From what I have managed to figure out the rear uses shorter springs which implies shorter shocks than stock. What about the front? Are shorter shocks required? Thanks for your help

The front is lowered by using Calmax lower control arms, this does several good things for you, it gives you a 3″ drop while maintaining your factory torsion bar setting, does this while retaining factory alignment and allows you to upgrade your front shocks. The factory shocks have a very unusual lower mount that restricts what shocks can be used on your Tahoe, using the Calmax arms the lower shock mount is is a “typical” type mount that gives many more choices when it comes to shocks. Of course we recommend our Calmax SuperShox but with the arms any good shock, the correct length, will install with out trouble! Here is a link to the parts I mentioned! Control Arms SuperShox
