I am about to make some changes to my '02 2WD Escalade. I want to put 24s on it and lower it. My question is: what size tire do most people run on their 24s while they are lowered? Also is the eibach proline kit a decent kit to use to lower it? Do I need to replace shocks in the rear as well as the springs.....I think I have some type of self leveling shock. Thanks for any help!!!!

WOW are you serious? That doesn't sound safe at all!! I would never attempt to cut corners on suspension ecspecially in an ESCALADE!!

The kits available are inexpensive and easy to attain. You can get an Eibach pro-kit for around $250 thats what I picked up!

Do it right, Or dont do it at all!!!!!! Thats the way I see it!

Nothing like buying a luxury vehicle and being too cheap to do something right.
