Would it be safe to say that 2inch drop springs for a stock 2wd, would have no effect on an Xtreme with a factory 2 inch drop? lol.

If you buy lowering parts, make sure it's for the Xtreme so you get the drop you're looking for. Look into the way the Xtreme is lowered, if it's got front "drop" spindles, then I don't know why the 2/3 drop wouldn't have worked for FZN, which leads me to suspect it's lowering springs from factory. Good luck, and post some pictures up after.

The Xtremes are 1.5" lower from the factory using lowering coils and leaf springs. Using an aftermarket 3" drop coil will only get you an extra 1.5" of drop.

If you want a guaranteed 2"/3" drop you'll need drop spindles and blocks.

Later, Doug
