    Angry 2500 HD no suspension! help

    just put on a 6in BDS lift new tie rods, ball joints, wheel bearings, and control arm bushings. well now I have no suspension my truck feels like its up on jack stands. I have the motor out currently. I went in the motor bay and jumped up and down... nothing!!! rock solid. only movement it had was because of the low aired tires so it can fit in the garage... im thinking the torsion bars are messed up? I bent a ball joint press putting the keys in and broke a breaker bar. I messed around with them and I seem to have eased it up more and had been able to put the keys in (stock). I figured well maybe I had the key turned down one notch...? NO! I tired to make sure and the truck sat on the ground...

    Any help??

    also does any one know where the vent lines for the trans go? I cant seem to figure it out. lol. 4L80E

    Get the engine back in before you start tweaking the suspension. Also, have you contacted BDS? That's who you should ask first.

    06 duramax

    what shocks are you running? Was it like that before you pulled the engine or something? I'm trying to figure out if you're just judging by you trying to bounce the truck. That suspension is designed to have that duramax in there which is a heavy ass motor. You can't really bounce on it and tell what you got until you load it up.

    It's bds shocks. And me an my dad should have gotten play out of that truck 500 +lb and not a thing it's worrying me. But I guess I'll wait and see. If I'm having issues when motor is back in. (Hopefully in a week or two) ill let you know. But does any one have any idea where the trans vent lines go on the trans?? Last thing to have hooked up and I have no idea... Manual has no pics of them...
