    Just get new mounts. A body drop consists of channeling the body over everything, that includes the floor. It requires some mount relocation, but that's about 5% of the job. Try Pep Boys or Auto Zone.

    Body Mounts

    There are companies out there that make aluminum puck instead of rubber puck body mounts. The ride quality goes down some but the aluminum mounts are thinner than rubber so you can get the body of a Blazer to sit as low as a trucks body.

    hearmescrape -

    you can buy the full Energy Suspension polyurethane body mount kit from summit racing or jegs...its in the area of $225 if i remember correctly. People say it makes the truck REALLY stiff...


    but anyway, you can do it yourself. Ive never done this job, (one of the few blazers jobs i havent done....YET) but its seems relatively simple.

    body dropping is a whole other process...lots and lots of work. It involves cutting the floor wherever it meets the body, raising the floor up, and the rewelding it, so your body actually sits lower.
    this is a test of the sig
