    Drop Blocks on 2wd 2dr Blazer

    I'm currently running a 3" drop on the front (2" belltech spindles, 1" belltech coils) and 2" blocks in the back, the truck has a really agressive rake to it and I'd like to level it out.
    Could you guys give me some help as to which blocks are the biggest I can run.
    I plan on cutting the bumpstop brackets off but I wanted to know how much lower I can go in the rear without having to mini-notch the frame.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. -Josh

    i had a 4 inch drop with the bump stops and brackets cut off and it wasnt bad. But with 2 people in the back it sucked lol. BUt if it was just me, or me and one passenger it wasnt bad at all. But for that much drop id suggest pulling a leaf and going with 3 inch blocks, or just leave your 2 inchers in and pull a leaf and see how you like it.

    However a bolt in notch is easy to install and makes a world of difference

    I think I'm going to try a ZQ8/Xtreme leaf set on the back with the 2" blocks to see how the truck sits, then I am going to get the .5" JTR setback plates. That should put me at about 3.5"-4" right?

    I always get mixed info on the "true" ZQ8/Xtreme drop from the coils/leafs.

    Is 50 a fair price for a set of ZQ8 leafs? Can I run my stock shocks on them or should I get the ones from the ZQ8 truck?

    so.......have you done anything yet? I'm running 3" blocks in the rear and ZQ8 leafs with bumpstops removed and I have a hidden hitch and been pulling jet skis all summer with no problems. I also run Bell Tech Nitro Active monotubes and I really like 'em.
