    I would like to see a pic of your friends non-notched truck with those big tires laying on 17's.
    I never ever said he didn't have a notch. But thanks anyways.

    Although it was vuagely writen, I think the question here is if the mono leaf will bend down far enough to lay frame, not about whether or not a notch is needed or if airbags are needed, that shit is pretty fucking obvious.
    I dont know the answer actualy, but Ido know that it wont work with 3" blocks. I'm assuming one extra inch would do it, but still...
    Plan on de-arching or simply flipping over the leafs, and you will lay frame with no problem.

    I agree. I truck that can lay flat on the ground is very nice but when it's your daily driver and has to be taken everywhere you need to go, it can get annoying and dangerous. Everytime you go over a big bump, if the suspension has travel clear to the ground, it will smack. I dont like the idea of driving 70 on the freeway and some shit off the road cutting a bag and one corner of my blazer plowing into the ground.
    BUT.. Being able to throw sparks at the saturday night meets and shit is well worth it.
    So, I'm going to make my lay all around, and design my own bump stop pads that I can install stops to keep me like 1/2" off the ground if I'm going to go on a long trip or something. I can always reach under there and unscrew them if I want to show off.

    i was thinking of the same thing. i was goin to drill a hole and weld a nut on the back side of the lower control arm and them drill a hole and weld a nut on the bottom of my step notch. then i am goingto get some energy suspesion bump stops with a threaded stud coming out of them. then al i would have to do is air up my bags and unscrew them for spark throwin....
    wicked to the bone i am
    you can meet me in the dark if you think im playin 4 DOOR LOVE
