If you had the zq8 suspension package then you already had 2" coils... If you replaced them with 3" coils... you only lowered the truck another inch... there will not be much of a difference in stance. You need wither drop control arms or Spindles. I recommend Spindles.

beltacks

helpfull hint too... the beltecks are normally stocked at baxters for only 147.00$ and are 149.99 from summit and I think you pay shipping with them, however in truckin' this month in the jcwitney section, they are only 139.99$ and are free shipping on anything in the ad. the deal is good until april eighth I think of 2002.

And don't look at my avatar for pic of X on 3" coils...go to my web site if you wanna see a dropped X with 3" coils and 2" blocks w/ the overload leaf pulled off!!!!:idea:

And If I was you..I would use the 3" block and pull a leaf on the rear. and for the front I would use the 3" coil and the 2" spindle!!

So you think that w/a 3" block, and a pulled leaf would look ok/even with a 5 inch drop in front? i want a 4/5 drop, so how many inch blocks do i need for that w/a pulled leaf?

Yea...if your doing it to a ZQ8 truck..cuz they have 2" leafs already! the 3" block would be fine by itself, but taking the leaf out improves the ride SO MUCH!!! I would take it out and if you don' t like it.. put it back in..simple as that!!

i got the belltech nitro-drop shocks and they keep it from hitting the bumpstops....i can hear the truck draging all over the place when taking a corner and hitting a bump but its something you live with i guess.....
