    If you visit the www.stylintrucks.com website and look at the 82-93 coils, they do show the 4cyl and 6cyl as compatable BUT, they also show that they come as a 1-2" or 2-3" drop coil depending on 4cyl, 2.8, or 4.3L.

    I'm 14.5 " from the wheel center to the bottom of my fender flare.
    But I'm not taking my spring out to measure the height, and spring rate has a lot to do with the drop anyway.
    I think you have 1" drop springs.

    Don't have any part numbers to post. Bought the coils long time ago. Its just been bugging me lately as I see more blazers with the setup I thought I had and they sitting lower then mine. Time for some new good coils as these are AIM crap. Sounds like I did get screwed on the parts. Least I know the spindles are right.

    Those were AIM springs?
    Ugh, they're customer service is the worst.
    I'd go buy some Belltechs, they're only about $100 for the pair.

    On the AIM thing....I bought their "bolt-in" C-notch. Because of the bent frame on these trucks the notch is angled also. They welded the notch part to the wrong angle. Also, the bolt holes are so close to the c of the truck frame I couldn't get nuts on, much less washers. I called their customer service and the guy told me "But we've sold hundreds of these" to which I replied "Then you sold hundreds of a poorly made product". They were going to check into it and never got back to me. This was when I was manager for an automotive performance shop. I wound up cutting the notch apart, rewelding it the right way, and welding the whole thing in...sooo much work.

    Yeah, they said that they sent me the 3" drop springs, and assured me they were right. I was new to dropping trucks (I actually got them in like early 2005 I think), and figured that the original springs were sagging so bad, thats why I didnt get a full 3" drop outta them. I mean, the truck had 250+k miles on it when i got it.

    Time to pony up for the good ones.
