    Thanks for the wheel info. I went to a local tire shop and was asking if that corvette wheel would fit a 4x4 s10 and they said that the offsets are way off from each other. Its nice to see the wheels on a blazer and know they DO fit. What size tires would you do on a blazer lowered 5/5? Would you do the same size front and rear?

    i got my blazer dropped about a month ago and still trying to fix some issues.bouncy vibration till 40ish then louder vibration,not bouncy,humming type noise at 50+.keys in front and had 3" blocks in back but changed em to 2 and has a 3* shim from the 3" block(shop checked the angle).left adjuster bolt is all the way in and a finger gap on the right side,can i put a longer bolt on the left side to lift it alittle higher?because even all the way in it sits really low.
    my next project is to refind the pinion angle and see what it is because i cant hit more than 55mph cause the sound is awful and im scared to damage anything.any input is appreciated

    How much drop can you usually get in the front by just turnin down the that bolt for the stock keys all the way? I've searched but couldnt find a actual amount... I have a 89 jimmy 4x4.

    You could have cupped tires, your tires will be running more toward the inside now that you have a little more neg camber, or you have a u-joint issue, weither they are loose or getting tight.

    Did you index your keys wrong? sounds like its way lower than it should be with your adjuster bolts all the way in....

    Only like an inch and a half. Not much, barely enough to tell a difference. Notch your crossmember to drop it more.


    love that black second gen with the vette wheels.




    Sometime i gotta cut out my floor and make a notch for the differential and u-joint so i can get the rear of the truck back down where i used to have it before the 8.8 swap.

    i think the concensus we reached back in the day was that the 2nd gens get more than the 1st do when removing the adjuster bolts.


    nice blazer Al.

    Thanks, its a on going thing, want to shave to roof rack, and eventually caddy tails. Did you use night-shades on your tails? I tried adding a little bit of black to some clear and made a set of factory tails too dark, i didn't mess with it again, but planned on tinting the tails that are in it for now.

    had shop do it and brand new u joints :confused:
    what is the size of the adjuster bolts?maybe i can get a longer 1 for my drivers side to lift it a lil more.
    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)

    What's the point of Lowering the 4x4 Truck? It's better in High Profile. I mean. yes.. Low porfile 4x4 looks cool. but High Profile 4x4 gives better performance off road.

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