    Lowering help!!!!!!

    I was wondering if this would be a good setup to drop a 2001 Blazer X. I just want it to sit alot lower than stock without investing too much into my work truck if you know what i mean.

    Yeah can just go buy 3" springs, but you'll only go 1.5" more in the front, whereas you'll go down another 4" in the rear. Your Blazer is lowered via springs up front and leaf springs out back. So you need to buy drop spindles to get another 2" ON TOP of your current drop, along with 2-3" blocks out back.

    GM already lowered the vehicles the cheap way, so saving a ton of money, well you're at a loss.

    That'd be a 3.5" drop up front, and 5.5" out back..you'd want to stick with a 3" block unless your going to replace the stock springs with 3" drop coil to get that extra 1.5" drop, then you'd still be better off going with 3" drop leafs (or having yours de-arched) and going with a 3" blocks.

    I don't really like 4" blocks, they just always seem the cheap way out, and just don't seem that safe. 3" is the highest I'd go.

    If you want LOW, then you need 2" drop spindles/3" drop coils (front) 3" drop leafs and 2-3" drop block for out back and a small notch for the frame.

    That's run you around $400-550 I think, just depends on where you buy it.

    IVE DROpped over 25 blazer xs to date so here we go

    98 UP BLAZERS USE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SPINDLE THAN A S10!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    you need bel-2102 from summit racing and the block bel-6202 is what i use.

    NOW with a 2 inch spindle and 4 inch block back will be lower than front. i used a 4 inch block 2 ears no now probs.

    also on some blazer xs ive pulled 3rd leaf out and put in a 2 inch block and the ride is smoother id say.

    im at a 5.5/7 drop on our blazer x with a notch.

    For all your part numbers needed for belltech equipment, check out the sticky thread at the top of the Metal Drops Forum...

    In 1095, Pope Urban II commanded the beginning of the most heinous period ever documented: The Crusades. While killing over 100,000 Turks in 1098, the Christians "did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy's] tents - save that they ran their lances through their bellies," according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.
