    Looks good. How do you find that suspension compared to mchaughys?

    Re: Drop BBK Corsa and 24s

    I once bought a McG kit but never installed it. I did have a non-autoride 2/4 Belletch kit on my Tahoe: http://i1052.photobucket.com/albums/...e/d1700a3a.jpg and http://i1052.photobucket.com/albums/...ps6c79c717.jpg but I took it off after a week because of how bad the ride was.

    So today I was pleasantly surprised with the ride after the drop. It's actually like stock on the highway and very close to stock around town. Not sure if it's because of the Escalade stock suspension, maybe it's the DJM sway bars and hardware, or maybe the shop that did the Hybrid drop did something wrong, but I'm very very happy with this one.

    A little heads up for anyone considering combining this Belltech drop with the Wilwood BBK kit ... you have to tell the shop to grind off a few mm off the front spindles to clear the calipers. It's very easy, affects nothing, and takes about half an hour, but it's worth noting so that the shop doesn't get surprised by it.

    I like the sound and the looks of that quad exhaust tips! did you have after market exhaust in your hybrid before? how did it sound? it sounds just like my range rover sport!

    Re: Drop BBK Corsa and 24s

    Thanks evois.

    No on the Hybrid all I did was delete the resonator and add side swept tips, no aftermarket muffler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3M8vognkQk

    I was apprehensive about the Corsa because it is really loud, especially at startup. Also because it uses the louder Sport muffler and not the tamer Touring one. But everyone familiar with the kit assured me that you'll hear it when you step on it, at cruising speed it is barely audible and absolutely zero drone at highway speeds ... this is in fact how it turned out, so I'm very happy with it.
