    Regardless of if you have a horde of miscreant offspring to cart around off-road or you and your closest dirt crew make up an octet, JD Fabrication has the parts and know-how to level your ’00-’06 Chevy 1500 Suburban 4x4 and outfit it with a 2.5-inch-diameter free-bleed King bypass shock at each corner. The JD Fabrication mid-travel leveling kit makes room for up to 35-inch tires, with some minor trimming, and increases front wheel travel to 11 inches. It is designed to fit all GMT800-series 4x4 chassis as well. The free-bleed shock design eliminates all of the noise normally associated with traditional bypass shocks, yet still provides position-sensitive shock valving and a smooth ride both on- and off-road. The JD Fabrication spec King free-bleed bypass shocks offer a 2-inch bump zone to help control more aggressive trail impacts. We stopped by JD Fabrication in Escondido, California, to see how it all comes together.
