upgrades, need help selecting components 99 Tahoe


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I picked up a nice 99 Tahoe 4WD last year and have enjoyed it a lot. It's approaching 100k miles on it, so I plan to have it in for full service, plus I'll be putting new tires and wheels, intake, exhaust, etc.

 

But first I want to improve the ride and handling. So I want to go with new shocks and I also wanted to know if there are bigger swaybars I could get. I want to flatten and improve ride control.

 

Is there a better bilstein, or are Tokico's a better choice? How about sway bar choices?

 

My Tahoe sees very little off-road use, mainly used for work and daily driving.

It's too bouncy and has a ton of body roll, which I'm sure is due to old shocks, poor tires, etc. Any thoughts?

 

For an exhaust system, I want to improve the flow with out going much louder - any good catback or complete header/exhaust system that would not be too loud but flow well?

 

Finally, I'd like to upgrade the brakes. Do they make an upgraded system or at least better rotors and pads to improve braking?

 

Thanks for any advice.

I love my Bilstein HD's.  Regarding the brakes, I went with Praise Dyno rotors and pads.  They have a spring kit for your rear drums as well.  Key to keep the rears adjusted properly.  Big brake kits are our there but seem pretty pricy.  Regarding the cat back, I went with Borla but you may find it too loud.  Gibson might be a little quieter.
