ok i have a 99 xtreme reg cab v6 stepside bed, i have 2 inch spindles and 3 inch coils up front and 3 inch blocks out back. i am running 245/45/17 and the front is tuckin hard it looks good as hell but i want the back end to sit as low as the front, i want it to set level, so if i put a 4 inch block in the back will it set level or do i just need to cut the bumpstops off or do i need to c-notch it? thanks Xtreme21

i have a ZQ8 that i had four inch blocks on. i had the bump stops cut out cause the axel was always sitting on the bumpstops. i have three inch blocks right now, it rides like it is at the stock ZQ8 height. i am thinking about putting two inch spindles and putting 4 inch blocks back in. how much do the fronts rub on your truck? i am currently running 15x8 eagle alloys with an offset that lets me have a three inch drop and not rub with a 265/50/r15 tire. i want to run 18's and eventually bag it.

if you go with 4 inch blocks you need to do this

BEST WAY of seeing how low the rear will be is to measure to the top of the front fenderlips and then the rear. then take off 1 inch off the back so thats what it will be like with 4 inch blocks.

if its still to high then get 3 inch drop leafs and go with a 3 inch block thatg will bring it about 1 inch more than your set up now with a 4 inch block. but remember you will need to notch it

if your not worried about going around corners at mach5 you could take a leaf out itll drop it about 1 1/2'' to 2''.
