Hey I first off wanted to thank everyone for helping me out on with this. I have a 2004 colorado, crew cab I-5 with sport suspension. I have moonshine driv wheels 20x8.5 wrapped in 255/35/20 's and want to lower my truck 2/2" or 2/3" but am very concerned because of how small of a gap is left and I dont want them to rub! What kits do you 20" guys have?

If you have the money, go with the Bell Tech adjustable coilovers up front with 2" blocks in the back. Should have no or very little rubbing issues.

Which product would it be on this site either of these sites?
http://www.stylintrucks.com/parts.aspx? ... od_ids=825

if its not there then maybe here?
http://www.belltech.com/products/gm/colorado.htm

It says on some of the packages that it does not include shocks..do I need those to lower the vehicle?

Whats the difference between these two kits?

They seem to be the same thing, why the huge price difference?

I have 255/35r20s and I don't rub. I'm running QA1 single adjustable coilovers set to a 2" drop and 1.5" drop blocks, helper bags and QA1 single adjustable shocks in the rear. I have about 600+ lbs in the bed and can have as much as a 3" drop with the helper bags aired down.

You don't need shocks to lower the truck. The right set of shocks will help with the ride comfort. These trucks have a tendency to bob up and down on the highway stock. With 2" or 3" blocks in the rear, it makes it easier for the axle to slap the frame.

I have a review in the works for them now. The front coilovers are NOT a simple bolt-in affair. There is cutting involved to get them to fit properly. I will release the info on the front coilovers in my review which should be out in a day or two. The rear shocks I used are the TC1661P Stocker Star AL adjustable and had the lower bushing sleeve swapped to the larger 9/16" by the QA1 dealer.

Here's the original cutting we did when the AIM coilovers were installed
