Silver Trailblazer Ss Upgrades

Recommended Posts

Figured I'd start a new topic like Damian did so people don't have to read all the horror I've been through in my "truck at dealer again" topic lol.

Start off with today and I'll update later the other stuff.

Got my new suspension done.. Looks so much better now

Yeah that was a good idea cause everything time I saw an update on that thread I thought it was related to you being at the dealer again....

 

 

Car looks Soooooo much better. That car is one of those cars that really needs the drop

The front is a half inch lower than it was supposed to be so without modified upper control arms made for these I have a negative camber problem with the alignment. Unfortunately only way to fix is tare everything apart again and change them but I'm gonna just monitor my tires and come July when my dad's down here we can take it apart ourselves and I'll add one more spacer on each side which will hopefully allow them to align it closer.

 

Getting mixed opinions on my tires wearing fast or not.. Some say I'll wreck them in a few weeks others say they had same issue been going 6 months with daily driving and just a little wear on inside. I'll keep track of it for now tho.. From my research it's the Toe that wrecks tires when way out if alignment.. While camber will too it's not as bad.. If it was those ricers would be replacing tires every week..So I'm not super concerned at this point

Paint process last week.. all finished up. Looks much better now, no more scratches, dents, paint missing or cracks in the bumpers or grille. These pics were after 1 coat, took 4 coats of color before we ran out but turned out pretty damn good for doing it in the driveway trying to finish before the storms started

Ok updated all the pics in previous posts for the most part...just ordered new headlights this week, will be here tomorrow

 

should add a nice look to the front especially since mine are all cracked and faded from the inside out

Scale of 1-10

Oh yeah. Clear modern looking changes the look of a car just as much as new wheels. Good purchase

Paint color match was 100% perfect.. My dad mixes the paint himself so its usually spot on. We were rushed due to weather but the overall outcome is 100% better than before. I'm very happy with how it's looking now.. I wish I would have taken pictures before, during and after

Ya it really cleaned up the front for sure... All the aftermarket lights are crap tho so took me a good amount of time to adjust them and get them aimed properly but I finally got them where I'm happy and the front looks so nice now
