Hey guys I have a 98 4 door blazer 2wd just dropped it 3'' all around
used a 3'' lowering a-arm in front and 3'' blocks in back, running 18'' wheels with 225/55
Now I want to go lower at least an inch maybe 2, can I just get lowering coils and a biger block kit? Any recomondations would help, some one told me after 3 inches it really starts getting technical.

i know they have drop coils,, i had a 88 caddy with hydros it sat low, but when i put the lowering springs in it was LOW! sat on the ground. they ride a bit better in my opinion, little more bouncy,, but better then smashing the ground!

ive used clamps, i heated the springs, even chopped em.. but just spending the cash for some good lowering spings was the best way.

good luck!

search on google how to pull a leaf out of the pack in the rear. it will give you about an 1.75 inch drop, then get a 1 inch coil for the front. you might want to get shocks depending on what kind of condition yours are in, if they are fairly new you should be ok but if they are old and worn this would be the time to replace them.
