Hey I have a 90 S15 V6 auto ext cab, was wondering would I have to shim the Carrier bearing, How much should I cut off the stock coil for a 3" drop, what leaf's should I pull with a 4" block, are the DJM 4" block's angled, if they are should I buy degree shim's for the pulled leaf's and what angle, and if they are not angled block's then what degree shim should I buy?

Thank's for any help.....

ok... with a 6 drop in the the rear, the carrier bearing should be shimed about 1/2", maybe little more

as for cuttting the coil, every 1/2 turn is an 1" of drop, so theoriticly 1 1/2 coils would be you 3" drop you desire.

the 4" DJM blocks are angled,but you may need an aditional 2* shim with the 6" drop.

as for pulling the leaf, how many leafs do you have now? 3+ the overload, or 4+ the overload spring. the overload spring is the flat bar looking thing on th bottom of the pack.
Excuse my quick drawing;

O_________________O this is the main leaf
_______________ if you have 3 leafs pull this one
_____________ if you have 4 leafs pull this one
____________ the shortest curved leaf
________ the overload
