Default Wanting to lower front another inch...

I have a Ground Force 2"/3" static drop on my 04 Blazer Extreme (coils & blocks only). I was wondering if there is a way to lower the front another 1/2" to inch without buying new springs. I'm not very suspension savvy so please use simple terms that I can understand.. much apprecition to you all!!
Also.. has anyone intalled those "Sulastic" things on their lowered Blazer? Do they work? I'm looking for a simple way to reduse the hopping in the rear that accompanies lowered trucks. Again, thanks for all your help!! -T

What hopping are you talking about, I have no problem.
To answer your question no you have to get new springs.
If you dropped it with coils than you only dropped it 1/2 inch in the front because the xtremes are lowered stock with 1 1/2 inch lower coils

So what springs do you recomend to get another 1/2" lower? The stance just seems off, and the hopping I'm talking about is in the rear. Like avery little bump in the road sends my *** bouncing in the drivers seat.. the advertisement for Sulastic says it eliminates this, just wondering if anyone has applied it to their ride. But I'm more interested in getting the front end lower... thanks again! -T

Did you get drop shocks too? Designed for lower suspensions. That may helpthe hop issues.

I got the Ground Force lowering kit 2" in front, 3" in rear. shocks/blocks in rear, springs up front. The shocks helped, but these roads in Texas are ****! Every summer it seems the dips get bigger and bigger...No C-notch, I dont even know what that is.. should I get a pair of 3" lowering springs for the front to give ita better stance?

I would go with a drop spindle for the front to keep and maintain front end geometry!! As for a c-notch your not low enough to worry about needing to do that. To explain what a c-notch is in simple terms is when you notch the frame section above the axle to accomidate more suspension travel if your rear end smacks the frame this is a common mod to do if you monoleaf the rear of a truck, by monoleaf that means when you take all but the main leaf out of the leaf pack!! Hope this helps you out. For the drop spindles I suggest airbagit.com drop spindles from them cost 110.00 and I have them on the front of my blazer and have no problems with them at all and in Phoenix we have crap roads as well!!
