Just wondering what everyone is using for lowering kits? I'm guessing it's the Belltech but just wondering if anyone's using any of the other brands? They seem to be a couple hundred dollars cheaper, just wondering if anyone has any experience with the other brands of kits. Thanks

U can use djm.....belltech (as u said). It all depends on how low u wanna go. If u wanna lower for looks go for the belltech drop struts for the front (up to a 2" drop). That's around $200. This is up to u but for correct upper balljoint angle and correct camber when getting alignment done u will need to get the djm a arms...or you'll wear the shit out of the inside of ur tires. (I didn't use the a arms but traded the envoy in for my SS a couple months after I lowered..so didn't get to see the results).

Mcgaughys sells a kit too. P.m. NorcalSS he is thelowering guru.

Cheapest kit I saw was 500$ for Belltech drop plus a arms another 300 to 400, don't have a 1000$ too throw around right now. But the wheel gap is driving me crazy, and saw the other brands going for only 200. Although I know cheaper does not mean a better deal, that's why seeing if anyone used Mcgaughys brand.

Yup. Mcg. Kit is a descent kit. There is a guy on here supersweettb04 or someting like that (he lives close to me and not very active) that has this kit. Good stance sits close to the SS. Maybe a little lower.

Nope he didn't use the a arms. His alignment was slightly off like mine. If u get a good alignment shop they should beable to align it within specs with this kit. Ur balljoints will still be in an angle tho.
