Default OT: 2003 tahoe billet grill help??

Will a 2002 grill fit a 2003 tahoe?
I adj. the torsion bars 6 turns for the bigger tires i put on it. The Tahoe looks great now and is level. I should get the front end checked for allignment don't you think?
The tires are 285/16 BFG's all terr. Thanks for your help in advance,
Rick

Yes, get the alignment done. I had my T-bars tweaked up, and mine needed it. Not sure on the grill, but just go find a 2002 and take a few quick measurements.

No
It just leveled the tahoe out. looks a lot better and the ride is the same. It has auto leveling in the back. This raised the tahoe 1" in the back and 1.75 inches in the front. The truck is level. Use a 3/4 or 18mm socket to turn the bolts. This took about 30 sec per side. 6 turns is the magic # from a lot of custom shops and my friend and brother who did his .

According to the Stylin Concepts catalog, the 02 and 03 grills are the same. Hope this helps.

scarabrick,

The have not changed the Tahoe and Suburban yet. The 00-03 Tahoe/Suburban will all take the same grill.

Get it installed.

Thanks for the replys
MOPOWER,
When i put the tires on my old 98 Yukon the front end slope was just to much for me. When I put them on my 2003 Tahoe i had to raise it because I think it looks ugly with a front end rake. The tires cleared with out touching the t-bars. Had a little rub on the 98 though.
