Wife is not happy...

Front end collapsed on the 4.8is over the weekend. Checked the codes, now it's the valve body has sh$t itself... She's now driving the 4.4 and I'm back to the old work pickup

It was operating correctly on everything except a sideways slope which got it confused...

So... it's going...

Now to the moment of truth.... what to install

I've read SOOOO many threads and posts, and the BC Racing coilovers seem to be suitable for those who want to lower their car... each one who's done it though eventually comments that it's bouncy or too firm even on softest settings....

I'm still leaning to Bilsteins or poss KW's...

Is there anyone here that has done a 4.8is and not ended up with a go kart?
