Default 01 Xtreme lowering questions

I cant seem to find an answer. I have a 01 xtreme blazer, i want to lower it 3/3, im thinking of going with the ground force springs and blocks, my question is, Is it a full 3inches drop or 3inches from a stock blazer? Im pretty sure that the xtreme is already lower then stock. Also, will i need to change my stock shocks?

its 3" of drop from a stock blazer so itll drop your xtreme roughly another 1.5" and no you wont need new shocks.

Thanks, what about the rear? 1.5 also? and if i also do spindles, will it be lower or are the xtreme spindles already modified? my goal is the lower it a full three inches more than what it is now. what do you suggest? Will i need any other parts if i go three inches? im not really concerned about the smoothness, and i have access to an alignment rack.
