    Lowering the back 1 more inch?

    I have a 2000 Jimmy with 3" springs in the front and 3" blocks in the back. I want to lower it another inch in the back. Is there something I can do to lower it another inch besides getting a 4" block?

    Xtreme leaves will give you another 1.5" I'm doing 3" blocks, set back plates, and xtreme leaves. I milled a bit off the blocks so it wasn't such a giant offset with the extra plates, so I'm somewhere between 4.5" and 5" drop in the back.

    Yea with the springs in front my fronts about an inch lower than the front. If I can find a set of leafs from an xtreme I might go that route. Otherwise I'm leaning toward just taking a leaf out.

    I don't have a notch and I'm still running stock shocks... I've only bottomed out a couple times when I was loaded down pulling into my driveway over the curb. I can't guarentee you will have the same results though.
