Does anyone have a drop on their SSs that already have the 2" stock drop. I am wanting to drop mine but I dont know what drop to do where speed bumps and steep hills wont cause me to drag.

Ok, thanks. I mentioned the Idea to my parents since they own the truck and my mom got all pissed sayin I cant drop it and all kinds of **** sayin that if I drop it I wont be able to go through snow. What I wanna know is how much snow will I be anble to go through the way it is now? No more than if I drop it, right.:rant:

Well, the question is how much snow do you have to drive through? Where you from?

SS's have ZQ8 suspension, right? That's like a 1.5 inch drop all around, plus a 2/3 would make like 3.5/4.5. I've got just a straight 2/3 and I rarely bottom out on anything. :thumbup:

Well, there are some times when we get as much as 15 inches at once. We usually have at least 6 inches on the ground at once each winter, or even spring like this year(we had 14 1/2 inches over our spring break.

I have the 4/5 belltech drop on my SS, actually it's closer to a flat 5 but I clear speed bumps fine and I have the Street Scene valance, just gotta go slow. It looks bad a$$ alot better than the stock 2" drop.

my front valance is about 4 inches off the ground, I don't know how it would sit with the stock valance. Maybe u should just get bags so u can pick your ride height? :) Just a suggestion, doubt the parents would EVER go for that!

I think a 2/3 drop would be fine and not hit any, i would go with more drop but here in inndiana there are a lot of country roads that arent kept up real well. How much does a decent set of bags cost, all parts included?
