Default How low can I go?

I was thinking about lowering my 2WD 4DR s10 blazer. But I don't know how low I can take it before I would have to C notch my frame. I want the most amount of drop I can get but don't want to have to make drastic changes just yet.

You can go with a 4inch tapered drop block in the rear and keep all your leafs for ride quality and then do a 2inch drop spindle in the front with either a lowering lower control arm so you don't have to go with a drop spring or get drop springs and shocks for the front with the spindle and you will be looking at a nice stance also depends on what size wheels your running as well!! Look at my pics I have a few of mine lowered on 18's with probably I think 1 inch of gap in the front and 2inches in the back before I went lower!! If you need some place to find a lowering kit there is streetbeatcustoms.com they are the cheapest I have found for drop kits!! Hope this helps!! Also the 4inch tapered drop block in the rear is the lowest without doing a c-notch!!

No problem I am currently running a 4inch tapered drop block to maintain pinion angle for the rear diff. but soon I am going to have to do a 2inch lift spacer to my trans. mount when I bag the rear. The front of mine is bagged laying crossmember but I am soon going to bag the rear which with money being so tight all year is finally going to happen soon I hope LOL!!

Cool. Your truck is clean. What size rims are on the front? They tuck up in to the fenders nice.
