a 2000 3/4 ton has a torsion bar front end and there are tons of parts availible for them. CST makes a bunch of parts for them.

Yea that is a odd ball truck, I have run into this same problem selling lower control arms. Im not really sure why GM did that. All I can really do is give you an interchange tomorrow. I think CST will be your best bet though if you call them up and tell them what you have.

GM made a coil sprung new body (99-06 type) 3/4T from 99-01 before they switched to the torsion platform. 01+ 3/4T 2wd with torsions, any 4wd kit will fit.

Fabtech & CST used to make lift spindles, good luck.

Sell the truck and get something that they make parts for. No one even makes a good shock for that truck.

no. you are SOL. if you had a "normal" 2500hd(on torsion bars) then yes you could get a "4wd" kit for it since the chassis' are the same but in your case you are fukced.
