    Question Right Side Sagging?!?!!?

    I have a 01 blazer x.... i lowered it using 4" lowering blocks in the rear and 3" controller arms in the front... The whole right side is sagging about 3/4 of an inch to almost an inch... the truck has been wreaked but they replaced the entire frame.. (major damage to left rear side) but i dont understand why now ...about 5-6 months later the right side is starting to sag... i dont know what to do or what would cause it... any ideas?!?!

    Could be when they put the frame underneath it they didn't get everything lined up. Could just be the whole lean thing in effect. It's kinda based on your ride, without pictures or stuff that you might have had to change, i can't really judge what it could be.

    well after i got in the wreck and they fixed it everything was fine... then a guy i work with noticed that my truck was leaning and then i measured it today and one side is sitting lower... is there anything i can do to make it level... ive read some post before about cuttin the difference off the lowering blocks in the rear but what do i do about the controller arms in the front... is there anything that could cause it to do that... maybe a leaf spring going bad or the spring in the front going weak? would having the stock shocks on it cause anything???? im lost as what is going on

    You'd be surprised what shaving the block in the back will do to the front..... my only suggestion would be to mess with the rear end, or make sure that your coils are seated properly... :)

    how much is it off, 3/4 inch or over an inch? you said its very noticable but a guy at work had to point it out to you? i would take a jack and jack the front low side up about an inch and see if it sits even all around. jack it up on the frame though. if it sits even than you should just need the spacer. if not then someone probably didnt fix your blaze right.

    Yeah, find the spacer or order one frome Bell tech.

    Another thing you might try is switching the springs from on side to the other. Make sure that both springs are the same and they both have there cupps.
    Its most likely a front suspesion problem, and not a frame problem. Even if its not it can be fixed by the suspension.

    You might want to shave an inch to 1/2 inch from the oposite side spring.

    Common problem with the newer S-Series, thats why Belltech sells that spacer.....theres your problem, buy it, install it, problem fixed...... :bigthumb:

    Or you could get someone really BIG, I mean HUGE, to sit on the higher side of your blaze.......:rofl:
