Re: Ultimate Static Drop FAQ, How To's, Part #s and Helpful Info
ok i am starting to get a headache reading all the different ways to lower my truck...
here is what is going on. i have a zq8 extended cab with blown front shocks. if i had the dealer do the job, it would cost about $500 for them to replace the shocks. i would like to lower my truck 2" in the front, and 3" in the rear.
first the front: since i already have to replace the shocks, what is the best way to lower the front. i would like to keep the cost reasonable, and still be comfortable. (i see coilover shocks in there, but i cant believe it is that much for 1 pair. i could lower all four corners of my corrado for less then these.) would it be best to just replace the factory shocks and use ball joints to lower it?
next the rear: how comfortable are lowering blocks? can you tell a difference in ride?
also once i am lowered, will i need to notch, or shim anything?
thanks guys. sorry for the noob-ish questions, but it gets a little overwhelming with z85's, zq8's, ext. cab, reg. cab, the "chevy-lean".......
