Default Lowering my 02 Blazer Ls

I'm looking to lowering my 02 Blazer Ls 2wd. I'm looking to get the Belltech 3/3 lowering kit. But the thing is I don't have stock tires. I have 235/75/r15's. I was woundering is I would still be able to do the 3/3 drop and keep the tires without having problems with rubbing?

you might bend the lip on the front fenders backing out of places.

My 4wd was lowered 3/4 for awhile. same size tire (stock 4wd size) and the worst was what I said above. other than that its fine. Looks a little funny with bigger tires on a lowered truck but you should be fine.

I will never understand why you would want a Blazer with only 2wd and to lower it. Seems pointless to me. Maybe I just have too much RedNeck in me.

Last week I put a Belltech 2" front and rear lowing kit on my 00 Blazer 2WD and I have P235-75-15 tires and it did rub on me the other day backing out of the drive way. I think if I would have stayed with the P235-70-15 it wouldn't have rubbed.

Alright, thanks. I just hate the way the my car looks sitting stock height. So do you think if I pulled the fenders it wouldn't rub?
