Ive got my '95 Jimmy dropped 4 inches around, in the front with cut beltech 3 inch drop springs and in the back with 4 inch blocks. I want to go lower, so I was wondering if spindles in the front would be okay and if so how hard are they to install? Does it require taking apart the a-arms? I was also wondering about drop leafs in the back and how much they would cost and how far they would drop it. Any info would be great. Thanks.

I just bought some Belltech 3" drop leafs from summit for $76 each. 2" Belltech spindles were $138. To put the Spindles on you have to seperate the existing spindle from the ball joints and the sway bar....not too hard but you have to get a front end alignment after your done!

yeah i did the spindles myself in my garage with just the regular 'ol tools.. and i didnt have a clue what i was doing at first, but it ended up being pretty easy
if u end up doing 6 in the back i would def cut off the bumpstop mounts...i have a 6 in the back of my s10 and kept hittin the axle on the damn stop mounts
hope that helps

Get a ball joint seperator from local auto parts store $10, other than that all you need are basic tools. get it aligned afterward, it will drive much better!

Go buy some new ones and do them at the same time you do the spindles. shouldn't set you back more than $50 or so.
