How about some pics of Static Dropped C-10's

Anyone have pics of a static drop around 5/7 with 20's?

Truck tires are:
215/70-15
275/60-15

Blazer tires are:
245/40-20
295/40-20

Here's the blazer air'd out,.... with the same size tires on 15" ralleys.

Do you have any pics of the blazer at ride height with either set of wheels?

Re: static drop pics

This is approximate ride height,... I can drive it lower,... but this is where the front alignment was good.

Nice now I gotta ask you after bagging the blazer and comparing that too the other two trucks do you plan to bag them also or you content with the static drop? The reason I ask is due to the tight budget im on im contemplating going back to static

Re: static drop pics

I drove my blazer static dropped for a couple years.
That gave me time to save money for the air bags and a "good" air management system.

Driving my red truck, as low as it is,... looks cool,... but you really have to watch things in the road.
The a-arms are really close to the ground.
A 4/6 drop is much more streetable.
I'd like to put a set of cheap 20's on the red truck,... but they would rub the inner fenders. (and I don't really want to remove them)

I love the adjustability of air bags.
Plus the ride is great.

My next truck project will have a Dropmember under the front.
You get the best of both worlds.
Really low ride height,... plus increased ground clearance.

They were on some 70's 4x4 blazers,... from what I've been told.
They are really hard to find.
I have a buddy that has 4 or 6 of them, but I think he's just hoarding them. Ha.

Re: static drop pics

Thanks guys. I buzz the inner fender every now and then. Lolife I know you would have rub issues. By the way, the blazer is really cool.

I'm not really working on the '69 right now.
My plan is to keep it static dropped on 15's and just drive it.
(maybe 15" Torq Thrust Original A spoke wheels or Torq Thrust D's some day)

Pulling the inner fenders just makes a mess under the hood.
Plus I have a long gravel driveway.
I can see rocks exiting the tires and dimpling the underside of the hood.

Re: static drop pics

Ok I gotcha, lol

The reason I asked is because my inner fenders are still outta my truck, from installing the drop parts. Before they get reinstalled they were getting a fresh coat of paint. I have been driving around without them for a month or so, and it does get the underside of the hood dirty, but I try not to drive the truck in the rain (no gravel here either)

Just a question for ya.......Thanks

btw, that blazer is just toooooo cooolllll!!!
