blocks and stuff

i have a 3/4 drop on my 00 and i want to go lower after being at the east coast nationals ive been itching to go lower. im thinking cuz im tight on money i could do blocks and either cut the front coils or put those spring compressor things on the top two coils i know its sounds kind of ghetto and that the ride will suck but i dont really care about the ride. i just need to go lower stat. any help is appreciated.

Blocks? The only way blocks will lower it is if you flipped the springs in the rear which lowers it about 6"...and it doesn't look like your've done that. Cut the front springs, we did on my friends truck.

We flipped the springs under the axle in the rear and cut about 3 coils off his springs. The front is riddin on bumpstops lol (he wanted it that low...??) and the rear is about 1" away from the bump stops. BTW those are 18's with 255 55's.

It's actually not that bad, you forget about the road because he has a cut-through with diamond competition subs with a 1000 watt memphis amp in a wave box...I rode around in it one day and i couldn't hear out of my right ear as good as my left the next day...

well, how is it lowered 3/4?

if its already 3inch drop coils, i wouldnt cut them, you would never get it aligned right, and if its lowering leafs in the rear, blocks will only lift it back up, if its a flip kit, then you can add blocks to lower the truck more
