    i ment like input like how many inches to lower it, its gonna b my daily driver. i was thinkin maybe like a 3 in drop but im assuming that they dont make anything lower then a 2in spindle. so can i do a 2in spindle and a 1in lowering coil and that b 3in? will that ride like shit?

    also should i put shocks also? nitro shocks?

    im still a newbie to all this so dont hold it against me if i sound like a idiot

    2wd? 4wd? How many miles? What year?

    Spindles is fine, no change in ride there.
    OE springs may have sagged some, so swapping the springs might not give you any drop.
    Belltech makes good shocks now, I use Bilstein, but with just spindles you can use anything you want.
    In the back, same with the leafs, they may have sagged. So I'd go with a 2" block and see how that looks first. Shocks are the same deal in the back.

    Honestly you need to do some research...there's tons of info out there. What you're asking for is pretty vague, and you aren't giving us any info to go on.

    Whatever else you do, don't heat the springs. It changes the temper and they WILL break eventually.

    LMC trucks has some pretty good prices and great service. http://www.lmctruck.com/
    I'd go with spindles and a 2" block in the rear. See how that looks and go from there. You won't even have to change your shocks, unless they're toast.

    Personally, I think The Office DVDmovies and TV programs, but can not find any of them right to own and watch again and again. This was great! The Office is brilliant written and acted show. The characters are complex and halarious. The plot is halarious Office. It isPrison Break DVD mixed with a dry humor sarcastic witty dialogue. I love the show. A great buy. And Pam and Jim will also love your looks other half, which is pretty funny. Not a lot of episodes this season but is off the show, which is good. And even if you begin to have episodes of up.This crackScrubs DVD is "Americanized" version of a very successful and enjoyable comedy from the BBC with the same name. He had some reservations that I have been watching this show, because the copies in the U.S. show of the The Tribe DVDBritish rarely seem to work very well. This is an exception.Basically follows the same premise that the version of the BBC and has many characters that are very similar to the original. However, the resemblance ends there. Each actor brings his own interpretation to the character and what makes it unique and fun. Honestly, I had never heard of these talented players to watch this show. But proved to be very capable of making thisYour Baby Can Read DVD show funny. Each story is usually about his boss, Michael Scott and his lame attempts to interact with people around him. He has an opinion, much more of himself than anyone. The cast seems to have equal screen time and not a single character dominates the show. If you've ever worked in an office environment, you may recognize some of these individuals. A really fun show and worth watching.

    I have an '01 s10 pick up with 2'' drop spindles in front and 3" blocks in rear. Since I haven't changed the springs it still rides like factory - not like shit. I lowered my '85 Blazer with 2" spindles and 2" springs in front and 3" springs and a 1" block in the back all with Belltech parts including shocks and it rode really well. Just keep in mind if you go too low in the back it will have to be c-notched.
