    lowered 4x4

    Are there a lot of people who drop 4x4's? I would like the 4x4 aspect but the look of a lowered truck. Opinions? Pics? post them if you have one. I had a Trailblazer SS AWD and I loved it. I would like to lower a 2 door 4x4. Some people don't think a 4x4 should be lowered and I understand but we get snow around here and if I have to be out I need to be able to get around. Thanks for your input.

    I had my Blazer lowered 3 inches and the only problem was my wheels/tire combo was too big. It rubbed a good bit when turning but still rode fine and I didn't notice any binding of the half shafts or anything. I have since put the right size wheels/tires on and its great.



    I don't have any shots with the other wheels yet.

    What kind of lowering kit did you use? That sound like about the same amout I think I would go. Do you have any good pics of the way it looks? Thanks again.

    i dont have any good pics. in the front i turned out the torsion bar bolts, on 1 side i notched the crossmember to get it down as far as the other side. in the rear mine already sagged and i added 3" blocks and trimmed the factory snubbers down. stock shocks in the rear and napa monotubes in the front

    oh yeah i forgot, i also used short snubbers in the front. bottoms out on occasion on big dips. get the stiffest shock you can on the front. the stock ones are worthless after the drop. and dont forget to realign it after the drop

    I was wondering if it would bottom out. I went for a ride in one not too long ago, it was a 98 that I was looking to buy. I hit a few bumps kind of hard and in bottomed out. I dont remember the specs on his drop but I didnt want that to happen.

    I don't bottom out. Pancake bump stops up front, low profile energy suspension bump stops in the back. The only time I might is if I have the back cargo heavily loaded.

    I sure do like the way it sits. Is that the stock size tire on those Camaro rims? I was thinking about using a y2k style Vette wheel if I were to do this.
