I have the stock rear Nivomat shocks that come with the tow package.
Tire pressure is 36psi right now.

I have a brand new set of non LL shocks for sale. Just incase you wanted to bring that rear end down a bit.

I liked the replicas you had. These are more flat looking.

I have been thinking about replacing the just the rears with Bilstein 4600s but would like to hear someone's experience before I make the purchase.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Maybe it's the offset of the OEM Goliaths, but the Grabbers look massive on your ride.


Looks awesome MOF.

I really like the ride much better with the 4600s. I did replace all 4 shocks and kept the OEM coils. Resulting in a 1/2" raise up front and a 1" drop out back . Perfect for me, nice and level now.

Thanks Neil. When laid flat the Grabber/OEM wheel combo is noticeably wider.

Thanks Attitude. I saw your PM response.
I'm still debating swapping out just the rear. I don't mind the rake just may want the rear to squat a little more without losing comfort.

Just sold my non LL shocks, just an FYI incase you were thinking about them.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

As i posted in the other thread Discount Tire royally f'd up my all of my wheels. The pics I posted in the thread were nothing compared to all the scratches I saw after I washed the wheels. On one wheel they even tried to use a black marker to cover up the half inch gouge they took out of the powdercoat. I just dropped them off and the manager is going to send them out to get stripped and re-powdercoated. I'll post pics as soon as I get them back.

Props to them for covering their employees carelessness but this will be my last visit to Discount Tire.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

I have a 2015 Altitude.

My wife took it out. Once. She hit a curb on the passenger side, scratching the front wheel. So that's done. I should have considered replacing the tires with something wider months ago as I foresaw the curb thing eventually happening.

So I'm trying to follow all the specs posted, but still a bit lost.

What are my tire options at 20"?
I really like the look of Neils, kinda flat with wide tires, but I also like MOFSTEEL's latest set.

Can either or both of you let me know what tires and wheels you installed? Did they fit without spacers, and if not what am I telling the tire store I need? I'm not well versed on the whole spacers stuff.

And what happens with the spare? If I read correctly either here or another thread, nothing aside from OEM will fit in the well.
