Best way/products to do a static drop

We are starting to work on the 71 Jimmy, I am pretty sure this was a 4wd to 2wd conversion! Currently it has leafs in the back! I will be running a 20x12 & 20x8.5 raceline fugitive wheel. I more than likely will get rid of the rear leafs for a coilover setup! What would be the best way to do a static drop... Id like to have the stance to where the tires are tucked in the fenderwell a few inches, I was going to post a pic but it seems Photobucket now wants one to pay 399 a year....

I am not sure if what you want is possible without bags. If you really want coilovers I would call Ride Tech.

Re: Best way/products to do a static drop

Here is a mock up of what we are looking at doing, the frame in the rear is definitely going to need a bit of narrowing, it looks like to go any lower I would have to raise the "bed" floor! The front is working out well, I have some older tubular lowers we will just convert to a coilover mount lower, build the frame coilover mount and run the open style CPP upper control arm, in the rear we are going to build a 4 link for it! So anyone wanna come pull the frame? Beer is on me! LOL
