Great thread.Was not aware this could be done on the H3. I did this on my 03 blazer but instead of raising i lowered it down.

With the Hummer i get it up. Thanks

When I had my ZR2 (1999 S10 version), people would do this, but it would cause premature wear on other parts (IIRC, balljoints)...Different animals, I know, but same suspension concept...

Obviously, an alignment, as mentioned, would help, but just wondering what the long term effects, if any, are...Looks good though, levelled!
both new axles, boots are torn & had to replace a balljoint, might be a coincidence, but I can't understand why the boots would tear in less than 7 months of driving

Theres no after market or oem boots to just replace? The whole axel needs to be replace everytime correct?

To all new HUMMER H3/H3T owners.

If you stay at or below the recommended 23.5" measurement you should not have any issues with premature parts wear.

If you are concerned with premature parts wear, then you do not modify any of the suspension geometry.

So when leveling out the truck by just tightening the front torsion bars what shocks would you recommend for an oem type reaction when breaking? additionally, what size shock would y'all recommend?
