Ok i did a 2/3 drop on top of my ZQ8 on my 99 s10. it looks lower than some of the guys here in town so i decided to measure last night. I am at 25.5 in front and 26.5 out back. The front is lowered about the same as about a 4.5 inch drop. The back needs to come down a bit. I thinking of going with a true 5 inch drop out back. What do you guys think. Also what go you non xtreme owners measure front and back with a 2/3 drop?

What size tires are you running? I have 245/50s on my stock ZQ8 wheels and thats .6" shorter than stock, so that drops mine down another .3" over those with stock tires.... maybe you are in the same boat. I'll try to find someone with a tape measure though so I can measure mine.

PS. Are your parts BellTech or from another company?

Sounds right to me. I'm at 26" upfront with a 3" drop.

If you want to lower the back you can pull the middle leaf spring and get anouther 1.5". It is really easy and its free. I just did it to my buddys truck very simple.

Hes got ZQ8.. so its already only got 2 springs in the packet...

*EDIT* nevermind... just looked at mine and i was wrong, there are three leafs in the packet... but wouldn't pulling another weaken the spring substantially?

If you are running a different company they may be just a little off with the adjustments.... thats all i can think of really.

What part number do you have for the blocks? 2" should be 6100 or 6102 for angled and 3" is 6200 or 6202 for angled. Also did you take measurements before you dropped your truck? If you did, then you can see if it did drop it 2/3.
