    Take the adjuster bolts out of the front of the vehilce, get 3 inch drop blocks for the rear. 2/3.. Not very difficult to do at all...

    BMXR - I mean no disrespect in this reply, but you need to go out and get yourself a Haynes manual from Autozone or Pep Boys or somewhere and read up on the suspension and other aspects of your vehicle. I've read a number of your posts, and while I commend you wanting to drop your vehicle and improve its looks, its obviously that you're relatively new to the sport truck scene.. But hey, we were all new at one time, you have to start somewhere, so go out and get yourself a Haynes or Chilton manual, read thru it, crawl under your truck and learn the parts.. The more parts of the truck you know, the easier it will be for us to describe how and what to do to improve the looks and/or appearance of your truck.. If you have any more questions, feel free to PM me.. Good luck! :bigthumb:

    The manuals I believe are like 15 to 20 bucks, but worth every cent because they have step by step instructions on everything from brake changes to engine removal.. I use mine still to this day, theres always more to learn!

    chiltons on ebay run for 7bux. they are the ones that the deals sell. also droping a 4x4 is very simple. first of all what size tires are u running, or plan on running?

    yea u will be able to pull it off. i mean try to un screw the bolt if it dosen't work then u can either cut the x-member or do the t-bar trick.

    Dud u got to look and observe your ride. take a 3 hrs and just go around and look. the bolt that holds that adjusts the t-bar keys is held on by a block. look under your truck(by the the end of your door) and u will see a cross member, and the bolts will be there. use a 18mm(i don't remember) socket, and unscrew it, see how low you go. then after that let us know ho wlow it went. so we can help you out better.

    hey, saw this thread as i was reading around on the site...

    i too am new to trucks. now, i get where this bolt is (just follow the x-member & its behind the wheel?) but, am i just supposed to un-bolt it & leave it unattached? sounds un safe to me. what will happen if its not bolted in? i'm sure GM put a bolt there for a reason....

    and will i need an alignment after i do this?

    thanks
    the newbie....

    no, they don't mean drop them out all the way, those screws are a good 3inches long, they mean loosen them up where they are almost all the way out, so they are sticking out!!!!!
