O.K. heres the deal, I have a 01 Xtreme which i dropped with 2 inch spindles front and 4 inch blocks rear. It looks bad as hell but I get an ocasional scrape in the front left which I can live with but the rear is bouncy and rough riding as hell. I am currently running the stock tire/wheel set but would like to go to 17's will this be a problem? Also it looks like the rear axle is resting on the bumpstops , should i cut them out ? do I need different shocks ?
Any help would be most appreciated.
:D

cut about 2 inches off your bump stops i guarantee thats is what is causing your problems ...also did u replace your sttock shocks to something meant for lowered vehicles if not that could cause some problems later on down the road I would look to bilstien or bell tech for drop shocks they offer the best quality

lol you need to cut the bracket off not the bumpstops off that wont help. go to this suspension forum and do a search on how to cut the bumpstop brakcets off. i showed pics and instructions how to do this. just to let you know the back wiht a 4 inch block will sit lowr than the front because right now your sitting on the bumpstops, but ride will be so much better

forget cutting the rubber...cut the mount and all out...your like it much much more without any of it there...and if it is still bouncy...then take the overload spring off....

Thanks

Thanks for all the help guys, I guess i'll start by cutting out the bumpstops and go from there . If the rear sits lower should i go to different blocks or ? Thanks for any info in advance :)

Blocks

I received my new blocks today so I am hoping I can get them in during my time off for the holidays, Ive got your address so as soon as they are off i'll be sending them to you UPS (One of the depts I manage is shipping) so I'll worry about the cost later . Might only cost ya a few BUD ICE's if we ever hook up at a meet or somthing ,I'm trying to talk a bud into going to the meet in July and leaving the women home,HEH HEH...:drinkhaha :thumbup:
