    Drop spindles

    Newbie here, I have a 2000 chevy blazer 2wd. I want to drop it with 2" spindles in front and 3" lower leaf springs in back. But I want to put 22" irocs, will that be a problem? And does any one have a spare set of spindles haha there pretty expensive.

    Shouldn't be a problem with the right tire size.

    265/25-22 should work.

    PS-That's alot of wheel, you should really upgrade your brakes. And don't be surprised if your gas mileage drops alot.

    Negatory on the spare(?) spindles...get your own.

    He will not need an upgrade with a 2000. It already has dual piston calipers

    Like in larger rotors and better pads. That's a whole lot of rotating mass, dual piston calipers aren't all he needs.

    255 30 R22 will work...You can get away with a 4/5 drop and roll 22s... nothing bigger than a 22X9

    spindles

    someone told me that a stock set of spindles on a late 80's model camero(i think) will work on a s-10 and will give it a two inch drop with no mod

    I have no idea about those spindles working on any s-series. But I'd imagine if they would work it would have to be a first gen. But I have a feeling you're talking about the arms.

    Back on track, you are going to need the Belltech 2102 for your spindles.

    That's not true. Camaro spindles aren't drop spindles. The drop U want will work fine with 22's all day.
