    So then that means anything lower than 3inches is just a hack job..

    This is another reason i built my own front suspension on my 4x4 frame, even thought the only orginal parts are the upper control arm mounts

    Custom control arms iz exactly what I wuz reffering 2. The lower the ride height - the longer the uppers need to be 2 keep the tires square on the ground. It iz very simple. U can only push them out so far with the factory camber adjustment B 4 u have to add length 2 them. It's a lot easier 2 use Ty/Sy aftermarket tubes, but they're not hard 2 make yourself or have made 4 u if your not a fabber or don't weld.

    OK so eventually the fenders get in the way. So move them, up out what ever. S-10's can lay frame with 22's in the front B 4 the hood gets in the way. But at ride height tires should not B compromized 4 drop. Camber iz an important part of traction, and obviously expensive 2 not deal with.

    Is this for keeping the 4x4?

    because if this is bagging and not keeping the 4x4 there is a better way to do it

    Yes, to keep the drive axles. I would weld my bags on top of the upper control arms then fab up the top mounts simliar to the factory shock towers. I know this gets harder with a V8 swap because of the headers, but it can and has been done B4.
    Didn't u have the Sy/Ty tubes?

    right now im suiciding the hood, rippin apart the interior and its getting redone with red inserts. Moog ball joints and tie rod ends, the upper cup on the control arm is going to be cut down by half because the angle is too severe on the bag. Im thinking about running a 2dr tank because when its layed out i have about a 1/4 of an inch till it scrapes the tank. Doing the filler neck behind the taillight, and trying to figure out how to suicide the rear doors.
