    Got some of the items back from powdercoaters for suspension


    ok so the outside of the eskys are all led.... except the horrible lights above the license plate







    i ended up doing 2 of these
    5K WHITE 6 LED HIGH POWER 360 180LM 194 | 1 EACH - 360 - 194 - 168 - 158 LED - Shop Bulb #






    Looks much better


    i ended up buying front/rear energy suspension greasable swaybar endlinks. This makes it cake to grease it all and i will offer it for my ultimate cornering package for the 15 up gm suvs and yes ocd taking over i will be getting the brackets powercoated to match the bars.




    got rid of the wood grain today had it all wrapped

    so worked late today but got few things done.


    Truck was at 35.5 front rear comes in at 38 1/4 ground to fenderlip



    Did the free tavel mod on pass side bracket cut off which gives 3 more inches of travel finish up drivers side tomm





    insulators on these things are big. I just wrap heater hose on top and bottom coils on them but the oem ones give the truck a 13/16 lift



    Belltech 5305 coil left vs oem spring right. Yes i had the belltech springs coated to match oem. OCD strikes again


    Finished cutting the drivers bracket put the belltechs in along with the djm links. Rig rides nice and came down 4.25 inches..... but its not low enough for me Ill post up pics with the rear dropped tomorrow. Im planning to do the swaybars and front drop this weekend. I have a feeling ill be putting in my custom spring in rear and getting rid of the autoride to slam it.


    26" tires came in today also.

    3.5 inch cat back from magnaflow. I'm a dealer and I sell this set up for the new 6.2s for 995 shipped. Summit or jegs is 70 more. I will be taking the valve in the middle out since I'm getting rid of 4 cyl mode with the whipple.





    Got the truck on the dyno tonight. Afe intake made 24 rwhp/21 tq over stock but that's just part of story. More power across the board and at 3700 rpms we saw a peak of 31 rwtq vs stock. I have them for 420 shipped if anyone is interested. Any questions just ask and thanks to precision auto in san bruno and my buddy jason.








    Got exhaust in and woke up truck nicely. Great sound and not to loud. I have them for 995 shipped if anyone is interested. full 3.5 cat back..... oh and the tip is horrible im cutting it off. Not my style








    Truck is lowered also

    cut the 3rd cat off. Truck is a tad to loud for me at this point and with the blower will get even louder. Im going to replace the rear magnaflow resonator with the oem one since its also 3.5 but deff sounds deeper.







    front swaybar is on. Deff feels better now in front.



    New one up top and oem lower bar


    got the 26s today. 295 30 26.


    get this oem wheel/tires are 90.6 and the 26s wheels/tires are 88.6. 26s are lighter then 22s lol

    headed to lowes for more paint to paint my rotors/calipers and control arms and sure enough found a stock esky there. My autoride link i shortened so got the back more today and lowering front more next week.



    Took out the oem swaybar and here is the custom bar im working on into getting into production. Also installed the energy suspension greaseable swaybar bushings. Also installed my custom springs


    My springs vs belltechs



    oem left vs 1.5 right



    All set to go along with the new endlinks


    i was able to paint the control arms and brakes today along with lowering it more. I put my custom springs in rear and drop mounts in front.


    32.5 front ground to fenderlip and rear 33.25 ground to fenderlip. Im going to see how it all settles but going to lower the front more and rear more after i put on the 26s. I should be able to put the 26s on tomm

    Bypassed rear autoride and replaced with belltech sp shocks. Truck came down perfect. Mated with my custom 6" springs rides smoother in rear then autoride shocks did. Front 33.25 ground to fenderlip and rear 33 5/8 ground to fenderlip on 295 30 26. DONE!! NORCAL SS has the lowest kit out for all 2015 gm suvs.

    Swaybar was pointing up way to much and ended up getting the energy suspension endlinks. These are adjustable so also a great mod for the 08 up tbss guys here. Installed and very happy with results. Front end feels much more planted due to the endlinks and swaybar being parallel with ground


    stock vs new one



    Parallel with ground now

    Been doing this set up for the guys that want a little more bump without spending $$$. Replace oem filter with green filter or k&n and then do this mod. Very easy and MUCH more air coming in.




    Remove stock intake box and you have this small entry for air flow





    get a screwdriver and pop off the front lid


    Then your left with this and you can see how much is blocked off on cover and box.



    4 inch cut off wheel cut the cover but do not cut the locking tabs on it





    Left with this. Ill clean it up with a dremmel





    cut the box plastic and then clip the cover back on

    Makes me like them more now, the rear end is growing on me I just wish they would have also ran the blinker led section all the way up the d pillar along with the running lamp.

    Can't wait to see what the whipple does.

    Hope gm doesent make the rumored escalade v with the lt4, then you will be forced to trade.

    i have the belltech rear shocks and the oem shocks tucked on the frame. Unlike the 07-14 when removing the rear air shocks it changes a lot more of the 15 up engine/steering areas.

    That is what I thought. The BCM needs to see them to be happy even if not being used.

    I drove a platinum edition 2015 this weekend, very nice. It had the massage seats, not great but the wife liked them, not as good as the massagers in a jaguar sedan.

    I was hitting my head on the open tailgate with it in the highest position, hate to walk under the tailgate on your lowered suspension lol.

    I love the wrapped tailights! I absolutely hate the factory "light sabre" tail lights on the new Escalade.
    Problem fixed!
    Have you considered wrapping the rest of the chrome under the rear window and around the side windows?

    Great looking truck!

    nice truck! How would those sway bars affect the quality/handling of a stock height ride? Quite a bit? Also how do you like the new trucks versus the outgoing model?
