    front end drop

    I hard that if you chop half a coil off the front springs while doing the conversion, It would give you like a 2 or 3 inch drop.. is that true..

    chopped coil

    ARe you talkin about cutting the front coil in half? If so yea it sure will drop it. It will be ridin on your control arms. I bought my blazer and it was lowered like that and it bottumed out over like a rock... If your thinkin about cutting springs just save your money and do it right for @100$. Unless you like body"neck" jaring action.

    If you get drop spindles and cut half a coil or a full coil off your front spring, you can get up to a 4in drop. Drop coils up here are almost $200, so they aren't cheap for us, unless you have a friend in high places..if so, please let me know..hehe

    Don't just cut the coils down. The most I'd ever cut off a front spring is one coil. That's usually good for around 2in of drop, and then with the 2in drop spindles you get up to 4in (like I already said).
