    Uncharted territory here friends. Marv's suspension on a suburban. Can't wait to get out there and see what she can do. Gotta finish a few things up, mainly on the front. Will get all the down and dirty details as soon as I can drive it.

    Very cool. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    What are you going to use up front? (Brand and height of springs)

    Can't wait to see that thing sitting with some 39.5" Boggers.

    Front springs are tuff country ez rides, 6 inch. Plan on swaybar disconnects and heavy duty shackles. Napa got my brake lines in today, so tomorrow (wednesday) she should be on the road. I'll get some pics when I measure it for shocks too.

    for not having shocks, sway bar and the trac bar installed yet, with a full 40 gallons of fuel it does ride nice.... bit shaky but nice...
