    s-10blazer

    2000 s-10 blazer v6vortec four door 2WD

    the only lowering kits i found was beltech 5-5, 500.00 from "SC"

    then i found one on ebay for a 5-6 drop
    $434.00 Shipping Cost95.00
    then if i cut a coil off thefront ill be a 6-6 drop i was wondering do they make any larger drops then 5-6?

    and both kits i believe was no shocks
    or theres a shop down the street who said they will do a 5-5 drop with shocks and life time warr crap for 900

    my question is do they make any larger drops then 5-6?

    they only make a 2 inch spindle and a 3 inch spring, so the only way to go lower than 5" would be cutting a coil like you said.
    and i think you can go like 8" in the back with leafs and four inch blocks

    anything lower than 5/6 you might as well bag it. With a 5/6 make sure you get yourself a notch for the rear or you will bottom out like crazy

    Summit is probably the best, cheapest and most trustworthy place to buy all the drop parts from. There is a sticky in this section with all the part numbers you need. I would definitely get a notch from sd as well.

    I would not recommend you to go lower than 5/6 w/out bags for numberous reasons.

    Your tires will be rubbing like crazy when you turn. You will have no suspension travel what so ever meaning you will be bottoming out on every little bump. And not to mention, good luck having your truck alligned with cut coils. Most of the shops Ive been at will not touch a lowered truck period. The ones that will will not touch it if its been half-assed.

    You allign it to the riding height, the hight you gonna be driving it at.

    As for price of baggin it, you could get a basic set up for about 1500 if you did it yourself. Its gonna cost you at least 1000 to have a shop do a 5/6 drop.

    It only needs to aligned when you drive, so yout tires don't wear out.

    yes i know that you need i allign when you drive but what i mean doesnt the allignent get thrown off after you drop it and raise it a few times or does it keep the allignment?
    i might sound dumb but i dont know much about bags,
    also when you bag a blazer how much stuff do you need to relocate? i know about 80% under the hood has to be moved/modded

    The cams on the front suspension bolts, front suspension bolts, tie rods, etc.. are strong. Once the alignment is set and the bolts are tightened down it should change. The only things that really change alignment are worn components (bushing, ball joints, etc..) and bent components (accidents).

    When you setup your airride you have to clearance everything (arms, tierods, bags, etc..) so they don't bind in the range of motion that you need to lay frame. If you do it right, you will have no problems.

    Depends on tire size.

    Front shocks for sure, unless your using shockwaves.

    Do a search on air ride. Many people have done airride and posted pics of thier projects. Those posted should give you a better understanding of the work it takes to put airride on. Its not a bolt on setup for a blazer (yet).

    It will stay alligned at driving hight.

    Contradicting yourself there arnt you? In most cases you dont have to relocate anything except for shocks. Unless you want to run extremely large wheels, as was mentioned in the post above.

    he wasnt contradicting himself...

    the cheapest way you could go to bag it would be doing a crappy two link and a 4 valve system.. or you could just bag the front for now and save for the back. i only have about $500 in the front of mine and i did it myself. it's not hard at all. you just have to know a little about it. and make sure everything is tight.
