Slamming a Suburban

Iím looking at a 90 3/4 Tom big block suburban.. Iím romanticizing about slamming it as low as the one pictured, but obviously it is 1/2 ton. Is it possible to make it happen without converting all the suspension to 1/2 to stuff? Pic of the possible acquisition too, it is 2wd.

I have been looking into this as well.
Looks like

https://westernchassisinc.com/Chevy-...prings-Kit-56/

Has parts to drop a 3/4 2wd Suburban. Looks like reare leafs and shackles would get about 6Ē in the rear and springs/spindles would get about 5 1/2Ē in the front.

Re: Slamming a Suburban

It's possible to get them low. Not sure you'll get that low w/o air suspension though.

Alternative sources for lowering parts are Switch Suspension or maybe http://instagram.com/builtbybrooks

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: Slamming a Suburban

Well I pulled the trigger on this 1989 3/4 last night! Itís not the intial one I was looking at, this one is in way better shape and was cheaper. This is the only pic I have at the time. I still need to go get it, and tell my wife I bought it
