    Lowering 4x4

    I want to lower my truck and i want to do it myself instead of paying someone to do it. And i was wondering what i have to do to put 4in block in the rear, lower the t-bar like 3in and do 2in drop spindles? My truck is 4x4. Im only 17 and im new to this whole thing.

    sup

    hey there

    u are at teh right place ta do it
    lowering a 4x4 to me is easier that a 2wd
    u don't need the drop spindels
    all u basicly is a set of low pros some drop blocks and time/pachents

    go to the suspension forum and look under T-bar trick
    that will tell u how to lower the front end
    if anymore question ask slim

    Well, unfortunately there are no drop spindles for a 4x4. And the only way to drop the front end 3" is to buy Belltech's kit ($400). You can remove the torsion bar adjuster bolts and get up to 2". Or you can do my Torsion Bar Trick for around 6" (up front). The easiest thing to do for the rear is blocks, but if you want more than 4" you can get 2" drop leafs and 3" blocks. 5 inches is the lowest you can go in the rear and still have a decent ride or with out a notch.
    The Torsion Bar Drop is posted as an announcment in the suspension forum. Feel free to ask any questions.
    I like my trucks like I like my women; WHITE & SHAVED!

    Does BellTech make a 4/5 drop for a 4x4? Thanks for the help!
