    True we lower them for looks and really, how many people go off-roading in a lowered Blazer. Mine is a DD no matter what the weather is like and with my job I'm on call 24/7-365. 4X4 will get me there any time of year. I joined the site around the first of the month and I didn't have my TrailBlazer yet but I knew what I wanted. Out of no where a few days later this black TrailBlazer appeared on Craigslist and I bought it the next day. I've had it two weeks today and the fun has already begun. New tail lights, removed all of the pinstripes and lettering, lowered it 3/4, and yes so far its been all for looks. LOL

    Mine is a 1985 S15 Jimmy 4x4... Converted to an AWD and has 3" Bell Tech keys up front with 3" Bell Tech springs out back and a 1" or 2" block in the back (cant remember now).

    i have about enough room to put my hand flat on my front tire and the back of my hand touches my fender(belltech keys and adjuster all the way in)
    shops now saying my driveshaft must be to long and need to have it cut,does this sound right for a 2-3"drop?

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 experience lowering my 4x4 . I suggest you should try it. :D

    i used belltech keys and drop shocks for the front and 2" blocks and a 3* shim in the rear and still have a humming/grinding noise that sounds like its coming from the front(at 50+mph) a shop just told me that my pass lwr ball oint is bad and both inner cv boots/joints are bad.wheels have just been balanced also.

    question 1) will these keep going bad often?(only had drop 4 months and have had the noise issue since day 1)(drop is not huge)

    question2)what is the best brand for these parts to go with?

    question3)would any of the problems mentioned above be causing the noise?

    i doubt it. cv joints can operate and a pretty good angle, just replace them. and your ball joint.

    mines a AWD not a controlable 4x4 but the traction of AWD while being drop'd can be tons of fun and I don't get stuck in snow.

    Thats what I'm trying to figure out on my truck right now but I'm going with bags......with hydros tho have you thought about just mounting the lower point replacing the shock mount then build a bracket for the upper point, IDK just my 2 cents

    yea that was my first thought too, nice and simple and clean but then i heard that you couldnt hard mount the cylinder? But i think i may go that way anyway. I also think in the back im just gonna go with a single leaf and the cylinder type of setup. what do you think?
