well finally the outside is done. next thing to go is just a c notch in the back and thats it. can't go another inch lower in back because will be lower than the front then. Oh yah we have flammed gauges coming in and a generation II set up thats it.

as for the front this is about the lowest you can go and still have a good ride. you will see the pics on the bottom of this post. the front is about a 5.5 inch drop. rides a lot better now that the spindles are in instead of the lower a arms and also I put a pic in on how much of the bumpstop you can cut and still be ok.

the mirrors and color matched door handles were well worth it.

tires are 255 45 18 i had to trim the body kit in front a little nothing major because the spindles push the rim out a little.

if you go lower than this you will need a smaller tire. the belltech 2 inch drop springs lower it 3 and 3 inches lower it 4. a 3 inch drop spring from 2 blazers that i have done have lowered the front 1 to 1.25 more than the stock 2.5 drop spring. that was 28 inches to top of the fenderlips in front with spinldes you will be at 26 about the same that our blazer is at now. any lower you will be smacking the a arm on the frame

I like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! help

Your Blazer is very nice. Maybe some one can help me with getting a kit to drop mine!!!!!! :cool:


I have a 02 white extreme 4.3L V6 Blazer.

I just add wheels, (HALO) with PERELLI SCORPIONS 255/45-18 and BOSTON ACOUSTICS speakers 6 1/2 in the front doors and PIONEER Premier 6x9's in the back, all are two-ways. I left the stock speakers in the dash they sounded OK. As my ear gets bigger so will the sound. I want to drop my BLAZ help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm also working on a muffler. HEY does some know if a FLOW-PRO will work on a 4.3L V6. I have one on my YUKON that has a 4.8L V8 and it sounds nice and loud.

Also are your mirrors still fully automated and does the heat still work on them.

Will post pic's soon!!!!!!

hey photo i live in san francisco.

we have a club www.loweredvisions.com

maybe i talked to you the last good guys show.

anyways i have the 3 chambered non delta flowmaster muffler with 3 inch turn down sounds bad ass. they do not make this muffler anymore.

i just put the 50 series suv performance flowmaster on my truck 3 inch turn down and sounds really good. you can ask a few guys that have heard the blazer that the non delta flowmaster sounds a lot better than the delta flow.


ive lowered a lot of s10/blazers, but ive also done 2 blazer x's with 3 inch coils in front and 3 inch blocks in back and its fine. the front came down from 1-1.25 inches and rear came down 3 like the blocks do.

if you go with spindles they are like 250 for spindles and then a 4 inch block will make the back to low so you need a 3 inch block.

i had lower a arms and they rode not so great so when the spinldes came out i put them on and cut 1/2 a loop off the coil and still rides smooth. if you come to the city i can take you for a ride and let you hear the exhaust. as for the rear 4 inch block = c notch. you have to trim the bumpstops in back down from the top i learned this the hard way because i cut from bottom first and your not supposed to do that because they are collapsing bumpstops. e mail me at [email protected]. im lowering a customers 02 blazer x this weekend if you want you can come by
