I didn't really get a good deal, I had to pay full price. I usually buy used stuff because I'm ok with saving some $$.


Glad you guys like them. I might have tires in a month or so, hopefully  ::) :4:

-new 99-2011 JBA shorty headers with Stage 8 locking bolts

Save your money on the Stage 8 bolts until you know you have a problem with header bolts.

I'm not knocking the Stage 8 bolts as I just put some on my diff cover.  But I haven't heard of anyone having a problem with header bolts on these engines.  I haven't had a problem on either my truck or my son's truck.  His doesn't have shorties but I've been running JBA shorties on my truck for about 8 years and 200,000 miles.

So I should just use the JBA header bolts they supply? My stock manifold bolts are no good, that's why I'm going to install headers while I'm in there replacing the broken manifold bolts.

It's been about 8 years - I don't recall if new bolts came with my JBA shorties but if they did I'm sure I used them.

Otherwise I'd replace the stock with some new grade 8 bolts.  The Stage 8s are about $5 each - I'm sure some grade 8s would be a lot less.

JBA's are here  :thumbsup:. Seller doesn't know how to pack for shipment so the headers got a little banged up and the manifold gaskets look like crumpled up soda cans  :thumbdown:. They did come with grade 8.8 head bolts/hardware. I believe these are just the silver ceramic coated stainless version and I might try to spray a high temp bake on silver coating.





 :E:





Lowering kit also came. Much better packing job from this guy!  :thumbsup:

24" tires are ordered and shipped today  :cool:.


Holy moly this will be crazy having these wheels on. Could happen very soon!



On a side note, these JBA headers are for 99-02 6.0L trucks...... not for mine. Damn.

Bruizza, dang 26's!!!! I can't roll that hard with my truck. The local shop here said they wanted $7-800 to install my 2/3 drop, I told them they are nuts! I'll put it in myself and drive it in for alignment.


I took the wheels/tires in for mount and balancing:

I will give you a 100% honest evaluation of the ride quality from changing the rear spring. I'm a little worried about what/if any change there will be. Hopefully the autoride bags are really softening up the suspension to keep it a smooth ride.

$700-800 is INSANE!!!  I had one dealership quote me $400-500 with an alignment (through a friend that works in their service dept.  I then called up my buddy who we (family) has bought our last 8 cars from including the avalanche and he talked to his service guy and they are doing my install for $200-250 with an alignment.  Granted that is a hook up price since he is the GM of the dealership but still the place I have never done before said $400-500.
