Ihave the factory zq8 2/3 drop if I just added Belltech 2 inch drop spindles and a 3 inch drop leaf would that achieve a 4/5?

I dont have a ZQ8 so correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that would make it a 3.5/4.5

yep

According to N20 NOMA's Tire Fitment Sticky you can go as big as 245 50 16 with that much drop. I think thats bigger than what comes stock on a ZQ8.

If you do the 2-3 drop on the zq8 with an ext cab, do you need to shorten 2-piece driveshaft or will it take it. I guess this should really go to N2O noma since he is the guru of stock dropping.

Hey sonomaguy I like your truck. You've got it all it's white, an x-cab, step side, ZQ8. Just what I wanted when I was shoppin for an S-10.

Hey thanks NCarolinaS10. I kinda lucked out on that one. When I asked the dealer for a truck my only criteria was bucket seats. I didn't find out about the zq8 package till after I had paid for it and was about to drive home. You can't believe how excited I was then.

that would end up being a 3.5/3 drop...the rear drop on a ZQ8 comes from a 1.5" "drop leaf" from the factory...3" blocks with stock leafs would make it 3.5/4.5 drop
