    I just got 20 kmc venom rims on my 2000 Blazer but the rims look to small. I want to know what is a Decent drop with out rubbing the ground every bumb. Or is it possable to go 22 on it.For the drop who has the best prices for spindles and springs.I like belltech.Does Airbags make your ride run like shit or better then stock.

    I'm thinking of getting 20"s for my 03' Blazer.
    Does it look stupid without lowering it?

    1) it dos look stupid on ablazer if you dont lower it even a blazer x
    2) ive done 6 blazer xs with a addtional 2/3 drop on top of the stock drop and 245 35 20 or 255 35 20 in front and it was fine. 20x8 4.5 bs though. 20x8.5 4.75 bs also on a few
    3) on a 98 up blazer that is not a x you need at least a 5/6 drop to make it look right. then 245 35 20.
    in front of our x we are at 25.5 to fenderlip and it looks perfect wtih 255 40 19 which is the same as 255 35 20

    The ground effect kit is a GM prodcution kit, its the Blazer Xtreme kit.. :duh:
    LT1/4L60E/Shaved handles, emblems, antenna/5-4 Drop/16" Xtreme Wheels.


    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.

    Go outside, and measure from fenderlip to your tire, and that's a decent drop to make it look good.

    Belltech owns almost everybody else.

    You can go with 22's if you want.. but they look silly up front.

    Airbags make your ride better than stock. :)

    4) all doetsch techshocks
    5) rides fine but c notch is mandatory

    if you have ever riden in a slammed truck you know why. Your axle will probably sit on the frame and slam against it every little bump. So its basically rides like crap

    if you drop it more than 5 inches and keep the bumpstops in there wont go any lower you have to get a custom c notch done.

    mine is a 1 3/4 inch notch and i can go 1 more inch lower in back if i wanted to
