Re: lowering 4x4 s10 blazer
WOW, lot of haters and shitty info in this thread.
You DO NOT have to switch frames to bag it. Search for jimrhabes thread.
You CAN lower it and still retain functional 4WD.
Alot of baja trucks are only 2WD...and we all know how shitty they work offroad.
There are lots of people on here with lifted 2WDs and several with lowered 4x4s. Bottom line is...use your truck for what you want and tell everyone else to go suck a dick.
I live in Kentucky where we occasionally get moderate amounts of snow. My truck is my first and only vehicle since I was 16. I had a nice 4x4 to work with so I did. It drives 1000x nicer than it did stock and I can throw my winter wheels/tires on and drive through the snow and slick stuff just fine.
If you only want a static drop...buy Belltech lowering torsion keys and some Belltech lowering blocks or lowering leafs. I would go with the leafs. I went with blocks initially and then wanted to go lower and had to buy the leafs anyways. I now run the leafs with a small 1.5" block.
