Default 2003 Xtreme 4.3L RWD Blazer Lowering Help?

Hey everyone, I am new to this site and I have a 2003 chevy blazer xtreme that I want to lower. I honestly have no idea where to start. I want a fairly decent drop, but about a inch more drop in the back than the front due to it being RWD. I have some after market rims on it (16x7 Kmc Novas), which I am concerned about the wheel wells not being wide enough for the tires/wheels to fit in them if the car gets low enough... If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated!

To give you a start I would check out another forum that has a lot more lowered rides, Google s10 forum and you will find it.

ARGHHH Don't send guys away, we have all the info here! If you just want to drop it a little, check into a complete kit. You have many choices for lowering that truck. I would stay away from a spindle drop though as you only have 16" wheels. Go with front springs for the front. The springs should drop about 1.5 to 2". The rears have more options like shackles, blocks, or springpacks.
