The '02 WD Escalade use to be mine. Ended up purchasing the '04 Black EXT for me and gave the WD lade to the wife. :)

Anyways, I lowered my Black EXT a couple months ago. Then decided to do the same for my wifes.

The WD truck is lowered 2/3" McGaughys kit.

The Black truck is lowered 2/3" (front McG. spindles and Ground Force springs).

Hope you guys like it.

Those are my boys talking in the background. We were all drinking, taking shots, etc.

Anyways, I snuck away with my digital camera and told the girls to go with me. Let's just say I had a good time. There are more pics, but I cant post them. You get the picture. :thumbsup:

To tell you the truth, it rides awesome! I like the Mcgaughys kit on my wifes better than the Ground Force on my Black truck.

The GF rear springs are more softer, so when I hit a bump, it feels like a boat in the water. Its too soft in my opinion.

As for the McG's kit on my wifes, it rides like stock!! I wish I would've done the McG's kit on my Black EXT.


All in all, they both ride great. I love it.

Good god, I bet that white Escalade is still a bit "top-heavy" even after being lowered... LOL

It rides pretty much close to stock. I would say 90%. No I did not upgrade the sway bars.

I'm looking to lower mine with the MG 2/3 kit as well. One question is who did the work? You? A dealer or independent shop? If you did it, how hard was it and if someone else, about how much (if you don't mind) did the work run you?

Appreciate the feedback,
Dave

I dont have a clue how to do it, so I went to a few places. Most places like Les Schwab will NOT do it, unless you buy lowering kits from them! So keep that in mind.

I ended up going to a local "import" independent shop who did it for $200. Its a shop that works a lot on import cars selling bodykits, accessories, lowering cars, etc

They ended up lowering both of my trucks and it turned out great! Took them about 4 hours to do one, because it was only 1 guy doing it. They even trimmed all the inner plastics that rubs, and grinded the bolt so I can still put on the stock 17s in the winter. All in all, if you get the kit, flip the yellow pages and ask them if they would install, rather than driving around wasting your time.

After lowering, I wait for about a week of driving for it to settle in, and go get an alignment.

The WD and the Black EXT looks hot! My wife also have a WD and would like to drop it. What's the size of the tires and rims on the WD? She bought 24 inch Lexani Crystals on ebay (24x10) but looking for the right size tires to use. She also plan on buying the 2/3" McGaughys kit.

Nice job! The wheels of the WD Escalade are stunning! Wow!! Where did you get them and how much they cost?

DLE
08-15-07, 12:24 PM
Thanks for the compliments guys. :thumbsup:

The tire sizes on both are 305/35/24s. They are both lowered 2/3".

As for the 24s on the WD, got them off ebay for around $2500 shipped with tires! They are called Mazzi Krank.

Because that style of rim goes up to the edge, people tend to think they are 26s!! If you look at the pics, they look a lot bigger than the one on the Black EXT as you can see, and they are both 24s.
