    Install spindals and coils in the front and blocks/pull a leaf in the rear. That's pretty straight forward but I need to know details on what to do with the bump stops and brake lines in the rear. Also if I need to make any modifactions on the front...I read somewhere about having to grind something
    down I think.

    I'm hoping to find a how to thread with pics showing what to do but I can't find anything.

    i dont know of any threads like this. but the coils and spindels our pretty straigt foward. you remove the stock parts and then relace them with the new parts the same way you would in stall to stock parts. as for the rear how much you want to lower the rear depends on if you need to cut at all. as for the brake lines i dont belive you will have to do anything to them if your just putting in a lowering block or removing a leaf spring. how much do you want to lower the front and rear?

    if you are going to use this notch http://www.suicidedoors.com/notches/blazer-bolt-c-notch you will need to remove the bump stop. i dont not belive you will need to relocate your brake lines.on the main page on the left side under main menu it has a tech area. there use to be a tech on bump stop removal. but after the sites last crash it may have been lost. it had pics and all the how to. the s10 forum link i gave you
    http://www.s10forum.com/5_6_drop
    should help the most as far as removal and installin the new parts. as for the bumpstop i would try and email or pm blazin low creator his profile is here. he should have some pics http://www.blazinlow.com/forum/member.php?u=1

    that is the notch i ordered today, but i got the straight one cause i have a 4 door.

    from what i have read i need to cut 2/3 off the bump stop and flip the lines over the axle....i think...not really sure. lol. i read somewhere with somebody said something about grinding something down in the front suspension but now i can fucking find where i read it.


    thank you for all your help :0

    whew lots of bad info in this thread.

    First your gonna have to grind your upper control arm for the spindle, belltech gives instructions for that.

    In the rear you have to flip the brake line so it doesnt kink, you need to do that in the front as well. The rear you need to check to see if your axle hard line is going to hit the rear shock x member or on the frame at all.

    4 doors are a little diffrent but instructions do help alot. blocks are straight forward. i dont recomend pulling a leaf unless you have a four leaf pack. Pretty sure you still have a 3 leaf pack.

    once you get so low in the back your supposed to flip your calipers to the front becasue they will rub the frame.


    But your not really going low enough to really break shit but you need to just check everything out because each vehicle is gonna be a little diffrent

    is 4.75 low enough that i have to flip the calipers?

    i have 3 leafs then i think whats called a straightener leaf, i have talked to a couple people that have pulled a leaf+3inch blocks+belltech shocks and say it rides great so thats what i planned on going with.

    what about bump stops? even though im notching do i still need to trim those? what about the bump stops in the front?
