Well, I finally got my truck lower. I went from a 2/3 (belltech springs and 3" blocks) to a 3/4 with the DJM control arms and 4" blocks. Install wasn't bad except that my friend and I ended up aligning it ourselves and that took a while. All in all pretty easy and smooth sailing. The ride isn't much different, although I hit a HUGE dip on the highway this mornng and scrubbed my front fenders pretty hard and hit my bump stops in the back pretty good too. I may need to cut them down if it happens frequenly. I think it looks TONS better and the thing I am most happy about is that I can go lower pretty easily in the future now! :D

Well, on to the pictures.

Very nice, although it still seems really high for having a 4" drop! I guess when you start with a truck stance there is plenty of room to go. Did you have any camber issues with the drop, or does the solid axle keep all of that under control?

Yeah, the Z85 stock suspension is really high...this is what it looked like before I dropped it at all:


No camber issues after adjustment... :sign0011:

It looks nice. I'm not for drops, I like lifting trucks, but that drop looks real sweet.

Dang Jay that is a sick truck, lol. Had a kid in highschool that him and his dad made a removable hard top s10 that was cool. When he took it off in the sun it removed the roof, and the back section all the way to the bed height.
