As for the rear, my bumpstops are still in there and stop my tires from hittin the flare with about a 1/4 inch to go

    Yeah your wheels do stick out far.

    Most of the kits for blazers are straight 3" blocks. I am running Belltech Nitro drop shocks all around. My aligment went fine and my truck handles well. My kit has been on for 7500 miles no issues.

    I think i drove for a half of a year with it 4 to 4 1/2 without any problems. Did that scare the crap out of you when it went out?

    hell yea it did i felt it to had to cut over 3 lanes then right away i figured out what it was , i was 40 miles from home i reached under and snapped it back in and drove in the slow lane ,it poped out again and had to push it back in but i made it home, i replaced the little C clip but it still came out again so i ripped all that shit out and just put the hub and alxe nut back in

    What happened after that half year?

    I am assuming that a ~4" drop in the front is the lowest while still keeping the 4x4 system in working condition.

    What is the lowest 4x4 with working 4x4 for the longest amount of time. Like is there anyone running a 5" drop for 2+ years while the 4x4 still functioning?

    How come typhoons and syclones can be so low???
