pull 1 leaf out of the back not low enough pull another 1 and for the front cut half a coil off the springs

thats the cheapest way

why go 1/2 ?

That would be the cheapest, but remember with quality parts comes quality ride.....

Check out www.stylinconcepts.com I don't know what year your truck is but for my '03 ext cab it looks like about 135 or so for 1" drop coils and 2" angled blocks. Looks like the smallest spindle they got is 2". Why only a 1/2 drop? Just wunderin....

i dont really want to go that low because i have alot of places i can drag around here and ive got a extreme so i dont want to ripp off my ground effects. Also i just want it to look a little lower for now until i get my bags. psst..psst... :)

you dont think ill be too low to drag alot because i have alot of steep angled driveways and parking lots around here. Also how hard is it to install spindles. I know blocks are pretty easy but havent seen an install on spindles

a 1/2 drop will barely be noticable... If I were to go to the trouble of dropping it in the first place, I would go 2/3 atleast... Just my opinion, take it for what its worth (not much)

I have a 2/3 on my 90 S15 and scrape a couple place's and alot of crummy road's and steep driveway's, but I'm goin 5/6 and just gonna deal with havin a lowerd truck. :burnout:

I'd go with a 2/3 for your truck tho, a 2/3 isn't really noticable unless you been around the truck a while. so a 1/2 would look stock pretty much. You will also need angled block's for the ext cab...

since u have an extreme u already have zq8 springs and shocks for and extra 1-2 drop u would need to use a 3 inch drop springs up front and 2 inch angled drop blocks for the back for it sit where u want it

just look around on the for sale boards or check out djm and belltech parts ... stylin concepts, summit racing, and jegs are some good company's to get some stuff from
