    New Member from TX, 03 Blazer Xtreme, New Project

    I've got a few questions about my blazer,
    I just bought it and the asshole that I bought it from ghetto dropped the shit out of it and I want to put new suspension under it with a set of vette gran sports (18/19) with C5 brake setup...
    Does anyone have any suggestions about what to run for the wheel combo I would like to use? I will most definitely drive the hell outta the truck so I don't want to slam it...
    Any advice would be appreciated...

    Need a little more info,

    How was it dropped

    How low do you want it (also depends on money for ride quality)

    Maybe a picture to help us out

    And welcome

    Homeboy cut the springs (ghetto drop) and took 1 of the leafs out.. Money isn't a concern but I would like to spend about 1500 on the suspension.. I've already got the brakes so that's not a worry either... Do you think I should start over and then drop from factory? I don't want to go with bags cuz I plan to drive it fair distance...

    You can just buy a drop kit and start freash.....anything lower than 2" in the front you should start with 2" drop spindles. You can go bags and keep it streetable. If money is not a concern, I would go bags

    Where do you want it to sit? At stock zq8 stance or lower than that?
    Stock - you can get MOOG zq8 front springs brand new, you can install a junkyard leaf for the back.
    Lower - replace your cut springs anyway, get stock or lowered springs. I agree that spindle drop is the first way you should get 2" lower. For the rear, use drop leaves or add a stock leaf with lowering blocks.
    AutoX - there are front coilovers available, cal-track for the rear.
    Slammed - bags are cool but a lot of work in the rear
