    Thats nice. You know I just did my 00 Blazer 4DR (on 22's) and I didn't go with the mono-leaf instead I went with a 2 link. Now I know everybodys first reaction is going to be why not 3 or 4 link, well that will be next some time in the future. The thing I don't like about mine is that it does not lay as low as I wanted it. I'll take some pics and try to post. The back lip of wheel well is about 3/4 above the rim and on the front the lip of wheel well is about 1 above the rim. That sucks right. I wanted to lay something like the pic of 9sixblazer (above). You see I did not want to cut the inside of truck bed floor because of my huge box, but like I said I wanted it to sit lower then what it is. The lock-up I am happy with. One other problem I got is that when I drive with the front high, when I punch it or also on some bumpy roads you will intermittenly hear a clock sound. Dude said its my bushing on the control arms. By the way the clock sound sounds as if it is coming from the front.

    Its only a small notch, dude cut into the original frame. The dude said theres is not any point on doing the monster notch if I was not going to cut into the floor because the pumpkin will hit (I don't want to get rid of the huge box I got in the back).

    I'll try what you said with the wd40.

    Does your pumpking hit the floor in that pic above because I thought I read you said you didn't cut the floor in that pic. Your truck is lower then mines. I would be happy if my sat that low for now. If you didn't cut into the floor is your axle going into the notch you have. If so how much. As for the front what did you do. Do you have any lowered spindles on that?

    Actually, because of all the negative feedback I got from everybody I asked I never went with the mono-leaf setup. I went with a 2 link. You can check out my repy above from 12-04-07.

    Its been badass since I got my ride bagged but I am still running into a couple of problems:
    1- When I drive with the front high, when I punch it or also on some bumpy roads you will intermittenly hear a clock sound. The dude who did my setup said its my bushing on the control arms but still not know for sure. All I know that the clock sound, sounds as if it is coming from the front.
    2- My truck does not lay as low as I wanted it to. The back lip of wheel well is about 3/4 above the rim and on the front the lip of wheel well is about 1 above the rim. That sucks right. I wanted to lay something like the pic of 9sixblazer (above). I could of had it layed out but one I didn't have funds and secondly I did not want to lose my huge sound system I got in the back (mainly refering to my huge ported box for 4 12's). I'll take some pics and post soon.

    the good ol monoleaf. weather its good or bad, i cant answer that. but heres a list of pros and cons so you can decide yourself:



    pros:


    -minimal pinion angle change at any ride height (given youre using the proper block)

    -cost effective. all you have to buy is a set of lowering blocks, which you probably already have

    -easy to do. no welding or fabrication of any kind.


    cons:


    -rough ride. it really will ride like shit. but some people dont mind it

    -you have to deal with people calling you ghetto, eventhough its really not

    -you wont be able to lay out with large wheels even if you de-arch them (18+")

    -wheel hop. youre probably gonna get a little wheel hop



    thats basicly it. and dont let anyone tell you its unsafe or ghetto cause its not.

    The current box I got is alittle under 9 cubes. I thought about a wall before but never really had the time to look into it and really do it. I am happy with how its hitting right now so I've stuck with it. Its doing just alittle over 150dB (on the termlab mic-dBdrag).

    Although building a wall will give me the flexibility to tear up the floor so that I can lay. Man the sh** never ends.
