Glad to see my thread and all of its great participants have helped in persuading you to make this choice. Hope to see you lifted soon!!

It's cool, man! I didn't even get on here at all yesterday. I did measure with the tires out, several hours later, but the springs were still squished from them. So now it's 1 1/8" lower on the higher side (one side is almost 1/2" lower than the other from towing I guess). I'll still end up getting the new 6" leaf packs with the 2" blocks or getting an AAL next time the truck needs an alignment, but I'm fine with how it is for now. I like 0.5" of rake or so on lifted trucks, but anything other than 4" of lean is alright haha.

I'll post another pic or two of how it sits now.

Probably cause it's so expensive. Granted I got new wheels, tires, and lift, and got quality parts for all 3, but it was $5500 for all that. It's hard to swallow spending that much, at least it is for me haha. I had lift, wheel, and tire pages up on my laptop for a good 6 months before I finally had it done.

I did my headers first too. Mostly cause I wasn't able to lift it though haha.

So I'm at work in Africa, and my wife texts me a picture out of my American Force catalog, of a set of Faceplate wheels, and says "I want these on my car".......... So now I'm wondering if a 20x8.5" Force wheel will fit on the SHO........ I think it will!

Ugh, so much work . . .

But I'm gonna do it, with exact prices/costs for every item (for those that ask and so I can keep track of it), and the whole 9 yards. I just gotta actually do it.

Jason, just tub the SHO and slap 20x12s in the rear
