    lowering the 2k bravada

    well AIM still sells the drop keys (anybody buy them?) I am going to buy there keys and a set of leafs and take it down next month. I will watch the ride for a few months, beltech claims the balljoints wear early using the drop keys on my year. the factory balls were dead after 40,000 miles.... and the the truck was babied. If after a few months the ball joints seem good I will keep it like that and throw in the ZR1 wheels. Hopefully before the years over I ll have my 4500 bucks scraped up to buy the mach performance s/c.........Ill keep you guys posted

    Take your right upper control arm off and put it on the left side but up-side-down and vise versa and it will save your ball joints when lowered.

    he's correct ... it will put your ball joints at a better angle ... and it will give you slightly more alignability or you got with a larger drop

    not unless your going to go with bigger tires, remember in a 4x4 if you change the gears in back tey must match the front or your 4x4 wont work.
