91' 2/3 Drop Questions

638 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  90sV8Petina
Hey guys I'm looking to do a 2/3" drop on my 91' 350 SBC and eventually 5.3 LS swapped S10. Unfortunately, I only have enough money to buy nice shocks/springs or a nice lowering kit. Could I get away with getting a cheap lowered spindle and block kit, and spend good money on the shocks/springs? I probably need new leaf springs as well. I'm leaning towards cheaping out on everything except the shocks, springs, and possibly leaf springs. Let me know what you guys think or if you have any good kits in mind. Currently looking at Belltech but I'm open to other brands.

Since the 350 is heavier than the LS...assuming you get an aluminum engine. It weighs the same as the 4.3. I'd start with the drop spindles first and solid blocks in the back. I'm running 2/3 on top of the ZQ8 which gives me 4/5..+-. DJM spindles may be a bit cheaper.

Since you already have more go, you might consider more whoa. Late model Blazer brakes a a pretty good improvement. Of course you'll need the Blazer spindles, which can be had with a 2" drop also.
Front brakes...lots of threads on it.
