    <----- new guy

    ok its my first post on this forum. i am about to be the owner of a 86 GMC S15 Jimmy and i have a few questions. if im in the wrong section pls move. all my past hobby cars have been imports and my main project is still my autocross civic. im getting this jimmy from a coworker for $600. it runs great and the interior looks good but it could use some paint. i would like to lower it about 3in front and rear. im going to just use blocks for the rear and i was going to use drop spindles for the front. i found a set of drop spindles online for about $110 for the pair, but now i cant find them again. i think they were djm brand or something like that. if anyone can help me out it would be much appreciated.



    p.s.- i also need to know the lugnut spacing for the jimmy 5X????mm
