ok i just picked up an 87 blazer s10 2wd on 22" rims. is a 3/3 going to be enough? it looks like a 4/4 would work but might rub. anyone have pics? tire is a 265/35/22 if it helps.

you definately wana go with a spindle on anything over 18s it keeps the front geo right and helps with the camber issues...id go with a 2 in spindle anda 1 in spring and take a leaf out out back and go with 3 in blocks and remove the bump stops out the rear for more travel space unless your down to cut it...then youll want to notch it to keep the asle from slamin frame..you can trim the stock bumps down but hteyll wear out real quik...

The factory bump stops are actually tougher then you think I chopped mine down to the last buldge and been riding like that for 4 yrs mono leafed with cut front springs and a 4 1/2 inch tapered drop block in the rear but I was sitting on 18's. I'd only drop it 3/3 but keep in mind depending on the offset of the wheels (where they sit in the wheel well) you may have to cut the bump stop mount off completely, I had to do that on a buddy's because he got 22's with too much of a positive offset.
