    Question Help!! I wanna go lower than 2"

    I've unscrewed the bolt on the torsion key and lost 2"-3" in the front. I was wondering if anyone knew of other ways I could lower it in the front? I want a 4"-6" drop in the front. Is that possible to do and still have some front suspension?

    Another thing Ive been to shops and got priced for the belltech drop kit... i want to try to stay away from the high prices so where is and what is the cheapest i can get it? Thanks for any helpful info.

    Do a search for SlimGu3 Torsion Bar Trick

    that will get you down to like 6 or 7 inchs.

    i believe it is c-town who revised this and gives you all the tips to drop it like 7" and adjust the tires and get rid of the horrible ball-joint angle

    we talked about it about 3-4 days ago search for it

    you cant get rid of the ball joints but when you lower a 4x4 it puts the ball joints at an angle which isnt good and will break if not tended too which will leave you with a wheel hanging if not comes all the way off

    you will have lil suspension check the suspension forumn slimgu3 is the thread starter and look for "slims t-bar trick" or private message c-town and ask him hes got the thing mastered

    talk to c-town he has a method to remove the top control arms and swap them upside down and shit some weird thing and it puts the ball joints at a suitable angle

    the balljoints are (pic would be better than explaining)

    look at the end of the control arm where it meets the spindle right above the brake rotor you cant miss it
