    Drop Combo on 2002 2DR Blazer

    I just bought a 2002 non-Xtreme Blazer. What are you guy's thoughts on a 4/5 drop as far as looks? I will be using a 2" drop spindle with a 2" spring in front and 3" leafs with a 2" block. I will also use the Nitro Drop shocks front and back. What also is your opinion of what the ride quality will be? Also, do they make jounce bumpers that will fit this application? Thanks

    At what point do you have to put a "C" Notch in the frame? I am a bit uncomfortable with cutting into the frame. How much of a drop can I do without the notch??

    i had a 4 inch drop for a long time without one, it rode fine, just bumpy now and again and even more so when i had passengers, but i had no bump stops at all. The c-notch was for ride quality. Ive also done a 5 inch drop on a friends truck with no c-notch, it rode real ruff on bumps lol. but ive had my notch installed for almost 4 years and its held up fine with no worries or concerns with strength


    and my brakes work fine, im still driving it, just a little hickup with that pad lol. Just wanting to get a bigger welder to do the step notch myself. Im hoping for summer ish. But keep reminding me you want it
