    Yeah, the best way to get just a couple of inches is to pull the torsion bar adj. bolts completely out and get 2" blocks. Looks great and costs less than $30.

    A three inch drop for the front or rear? As for the rust, grind it off and seal it with rust inhibitor primer, soak it.

    3" blocks for 70 bucks in U.S. curancy is way high.

    What is the difference between canadien money and the U.S. dollar? so I can help my fellow NORTH AMERICANS OUT:cool:

    well if your on a budget and you need a for sure price... ya know what I'm saying? If your going to buy 3" blocks for 70 bucks in say canadian money, and its worth 70 bucks in American money I would say DON'T BUY IT, IT'S A RIP!!!
    BUT if 70 canadian dollars = 30 American dollars I would say okay. I went to Italy once and I still felt ripped off giving them 200,000 lyra for a burger, AND IT DIDN'T EVEN COME WITH A BUN!

    How close is canadian money to U.S. curancy or is it the same?

    $70 is $112 in Canadian. That's absolutely ridiculous! 3 inch blocks should not cost more than $30. Lowering the front will not do anything to the 4x4 and with that little of a drop you will not a have any weel well problems unless you have huge tires. What is the rust going all the way though?

    DAMN! thats a big difference. I payed like $150 for my whole drop 4"-4". Can you order from SUMMIT or AIM? they both have good prices for the blocks.

    THe rust has gon through in alot of place but i have been just patching with some metal and a mig

    I like how low it has go but it still just doesn't look right to me
    if i got three in the back i will have to mod the fender a bit to composate for thr tires i got now (p235/75R15) stock
    i might have a line on some pacemarks but i dunno
    is there any thing else that i can do to the front to make it lower with minor changes
    I might be able to order something else becasue i work at crappy tire

    You can drop the rear 3 inches with 235/75/15 tires. I did when I first got my blaze. As for minor changes, that's just the cranking of the torsion bar adj. bolts. Otherwise you have to go through a whole mess. I don't suggest it if you don't know what your doing.

    what kinda major work would i be lookin at
    i 've got plent of experiance in the tech field but this i havent done before
    so what else can i do to lower the front beside the torshion bar and still keep the 4x4

    since i let them down the truck handles better and corners harder

    If you drop the back on a 4x4 3" it will look silly. The front will drop about 2" max. I took my torsion screws out totally and got just over an inch. Not to mention it will never align properly now either. There is just not enough adjustment for it. 2" blocks will make it look lowered, but more importantly (to me at least) it will look level. If you go with 3 you might look like you have a saggy ass.... dont want to have a saggy ass now, do ya?

    now i got this and i want to be kinda a one off kinad truck in the town so i was hoping to lower a 4x4

    any suggestions i habve done the torshion bar and it droped about 2"
