    lowering control arms or spindles??

    I want to lower my 98' blazer 4-door 2wd. I was going to use belltech 2" spindles and a 1" or 2"coil but belltech has still not came out with this spindle apparently and its going to be at least a month before i can get them. The people at stylin concepts told me djm made a 3" lowering control arm for my blazer would this work or in other words would it be as good as the spindle and spring. I would of course use it with a 1" belltech coil. any help is appreciated.

    PS Thanks for the help with the bumpstops

    The control arm is more work and more money to do exactly what a spindle does. It's worth it for that extreme custome look, but nothing else.

    I have the DJM 3" controller arms on my blazer X and they ride fine... well... maybe a little bumpy since the bumpstop is like an inch from the frame cuz of the stock lowered springs...they are a royal pain in the ass to install if u dont use a spring compressor or figure out how to put them on differently then me and a buddy did.. other then that they are cheaper then the spindles coming out.. i heard the belltech spindles will be like $350 when they first come out.

    What do you mean? BT drop spindles have been out for years.

    I am talking about the spindles for the 98+ year model blazers. Belltech hasn't released them yet.
