You dropped it 5/5, and its 1.5" off the ground, and thats bad? If you drop it any further you wont be able to drive the damn thing..Whats alignment got to do with the back?

Anyway, the blazers suck ass, and the only way Ive found to be somewhat simple is to mount sleeve bags in front of the axle. The blazer I did like this rode friggin great, and its about the only option besides air over leaf or airshocks if you dont wanna notch the frame or cut thru the floor. Heres some pics of what I did:

This is the truck, the axle hits the frame in the back, and hes got giant 29.75" tires on it. I dunno what size tires youre running, but a 24.5" tire (something that clears the wheel well) will prolly make this truck damn near lay out. No drop spindles ont his either:

Uhh..I dunno what airshocks are rated at, so I dunno if they will stand towing. Ya theyll bolt up when its dropped, stock blazer shocks are long as hell.
