    how much pavement use? how much offroad use? if its just pavement use, you can run a 3" BL with some insanely backspaced wheels

    if it were me, since it costs nearly the same to have a functional vehicle with a solid axle swap, i would do one that netted about 6" of lift and lift the rear with a shackle flip and a zero rate, maybe a 2" BL...

    8 inches... would clear them fine...

    Well considering the avalanche has a 5 link setup in the rear with coils shackle flips and so on would not work, unless its a 2500 version. I believe they have leaf springs. With the body cladding as all '02's did, a 6" lift you will barely fit 35x12.50 Here is a website that is all about avalanches. I was a member back when I had my '04 Z-71.
    www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com

    They have forums on there with people that do just about anything to them.
    THey also have a offroading club called "Lifted Nation" The nation above the rest. They are pretty informative on there. Here is the link for the offroad forum. http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/board,188.0.html

    Enjoy!
