nope, it needs to go down a few inches, with the new keys you can get close to a 4" drop in the front so would like to find some rear leafs instead of just a 4" block in the rear.

Just paid the guy for the new keys for the front and got some pre-cut tint for the front two windows. will be picking up the blazer at 9:00am this saturday then will need to decide on either 17" or 18" wheels, black centers with a machined lip.

dropped it a few inches, removed the roof rack, removed the badges and rear tire mount now just need to fill the hole from it. the rims are just something i had in the garage, temporary until find some black vette wheels. here are a couple pics.

Looks good. As soon as I get my Blazer, I'd like to remove some things. I want to remove the roof rack, perhaps the black trim on the doors, any badging and lower it. I'm still undecided on if I just want to lower it or bag it. I'd like to find some rims as well. I'd like to go something 20 inches or bigger.

Stang, that doesn't look bad. And the wheels look pretty good too. What make are they? They look diffrent then most of what I've seen and they look good on your truck.

Looks good so far. Vette wheels have the best fitment for S10 4x4's. Check out Oewheelsllc.com. They're replicas but will save you a lot of money and have plenty options in 17's and 18's. Shipping is flat rate. That's where I plan to get mines from.

Looks good, nice choice on rims, can't say I've ever seen those on a blazer but I like . Now, not to be a jerk, but what did you pay for those keys? When I lowered mine, all I did was back the torsion key bolts all the way out and went to napa and bought the little pancake bumpstops. Netted about 3.5 inches of drop in the front for about ten bucks.

Dang... wish I could get that kind of drop just backing out the bolts. 2nd gens from what I've researched get more than 1st gens using that method. Having a 1st, I have to get a set of keys to get more than 1.5 inches.
