    HELP please....

    Whats up guys, i havent been on in a while...mainly because my last blazer took a shit....but ive got a new one, so im back in action.......heres my problem....i just lowered my new blazer 5/4 with all belltech... spindles, coils, leafs, shocks and blocks, and the front drivers side sits 1 inch lower than the front passenger side, and the control arm is lying on the frame.....sooooo...did i screw something up??? the coils came with 1" spacers that i didnt use.....i just wanted to know should i just install the spacer on the drivers side, or did i put something in wrong?....its probably just the "chevy lean" but i wanted to make sure

    Coils in the pockets on the lower arm? How about switching coils from side to side? If it doesn't change, then I'd say it's the "Chevy lean". Put the spacer in on the drivers side, if so.

    ....Not to hi jack your thread but.....I did a 4 drop in the front, got to looking at the back.
    I will need only a 2 in the back. Does the the chevy lean cover that as well.

    Seems to be more of a front thing....and not all trucks do it. Mine's off by about an 1/8th. Hell, new trucks are off by that much.

    no, the chevy lean is pretty bad on some truck. Also make sure the coils are seated the same in the lower arm.

    ok.....well i thought the passenger side was seated right but it wasnt....my roommate did the passenger side, and i did the drivers side, and on his side the coil wasnt in the upper control arm all the way....i fixed it, and put the 1" spacer in on that side as well.....but it still sits a half inch lower on the drivers side....should i take out that spacer, and see if it levels it out...or am i just too paranoid??????????? and should leave it alone, and accept that my truck leans a half an inch, now that i know everything is right

    Well if you are half an inch off and you take away an inch spacer I think that you would be about half an inch off on the other side. Not sure if you have the means to cold cut your spacer or if its designed so that you can compensate for the lean be triming your space to level it out.

    Hmmm....I'd try taking the spacer out, drive it for a couple hundred miles and then see where it settles.
