    Yea, They are the torsion bar adjuster bolts. I just wanna let u guys know that loosening or pulling the bolts will not guarentee a 2 inch drop....It all depends on how far the bolt is already backed out. Before I installed the belltech keys on my truck i pulled the bolts since they were gonna come out for the new keys anyway. So i pulled the bolts to see how much drop i would get and it didnt do shit....I got maybe a half inch maybe....But it all depends on the truck....So try it on urs and see what happens

    1st of all Fetto, you can't run shackles and hangers in the back of a blazer, its non-existant.. Second of all, you have a 98, I dont believe they make a belltech 4x4 kit for a 98, at least they didn't about a month ago when I was doing a part number thread on all there drop parts...

    yeah ive seen the drop kit at stillen, it was 179. it said it was a 4x4 lowin kit for a 98+ s10 blazer. said it had hangers and shackles in the back, i was talkin to my friend who drops blazers and s10s, and he said i have to use a shackle and hanger in the back to move the leafs , or its just gonna lift my truck. but ive seen teh belltech drop kit at streetbeat customs i think, i dont remember the site ill look it up, but it was 179 as well for the entire kit for a 4x4, and i have brand new billstien shocks out of a 2003 xtreme

    Do you guys have any idea how much will cost to lower my 90 blazer or take it to a shop to do it? and also, why some of you guys lower your trucks more in the front or in the back?, would it make any diference if I lower it the same all the way around???

    Because I'm planing to put 17s on it and I think 235/45R/17 and I want something between 3"or 4" how much could I lower it with those wheels and $$$ prices.... Thanks.

    Fetto, you need drop leafs or blocks out back not hangers and shackles. Hangers and shackles are for fullsize trucks to flip the leafs from the top of the axle to the bottom...our leafs are already underneath the axle
