leveling with a twist

i have an 01 edge and this might seem unorthadox, but i want to level my truck by dropping the back instead of rasing the front. im looking for a sportier stance but not slammed. i want to eventually put some bigger rims and a quality tire on them so it sits almost musclecarish. its yellow, its supposed to look fast. haha

so? go out and do work!



IF you're rear sits 1" too low, you can always get a '08 1.5" block if you wanted.

Pull the factory lift block and you should be good.
