I'd hit it!!



can't wait till I get the rest of my skyjacker installed :D :D I've got 2 of my 4 ball joints (I just went ahead n ordered new ones, I figured after 140k and 50k+ of that all close to a full TB crank, they could prolly go for being replaced anyway...

Love your rig, as always bro - huge inspiration.

And you've got me pretty much convinced to move up to 35's after the susp install, bastard - I was happy with my 33's till you came along with this!!!!

Blame Dents-N-Dings and xkmac86x and Racer and deafsocaldaddy for the tire size. They made me realize what I wanted.

I am an s10 guy so I guess this might be a better question to ask DO ANY COLORADO'S USE COIL SPRINGS?

umm..

The Z71 2x4 and 4x4 models and Z85 4x4 have torsion bar suspension setups.

All the others, ZQ8, Xtreme and Z85 2wd use coilover.

Not really sure what a performance one would be since the engine can be the same throughout.

Yeah, coils are easy and cheap to go either way at great lengths... Torsion bars, it either costs a fortune or it's damn near impossible to go drastically up or down...
