    wheel size

    Hey Blazer buddy! Now you said you are doing a 3 inch drop and mount 18's 0r 20's. OK I guess where you drive the roads must be really smooth or pothole free! Don't get me wrong..It would look SMOKIN!! but the way I see it will you be driving this blazer as a daily driver? Keep in mind when you drop that bad boy 3 inches the ride is gonna be MEGA-stiff then if mount 20's you could bend those HOT rims if you so much as run over a pack of matches! If it was my blazer I would drop 2 inches and go with 17's or 18's (max) It all depends if the blazer is for shows or everyday use! I installed a set of Belltech leafs on one of my old blazers..DAMM talk about back crackin!! So I went with lowering blocks & the stock leaf springs. It looked dropped (slightly) but kept the stock ride (oh yeah) I also installed Bilstiens all around What a GREAT shock!!! or KYB are a great Bang for the buck! Check out shockwarehouse.com Take care! Good luck with whatever you go with! PEACE! Hman
