Try and get a hold of NorcalSS on TBSSOwners.........he's the man with the lowering skills.............how low would a djm 2 4 kit with ss struts and springs in the front and then id cut about 1/2 coil to get 1" lower out back. looking to get a 3 5 drop. lemme know what yalll think.
i got the belltech 2/3 drop also. i think somethings wrong cause i dont sit level i think.tony(norcalss) does run coilovers, its the best route....but remember the SS boys dont need anything for the back they just drop the self adjuster for the bags.
Do not cut the coils there are tons of better options. Like for the front get the belltech drop struts and then run a drop spring on that.....hell that alone would be 4" of drop with the options of going up to stock height by adding collars....
I have a 2/3 belltech, its sits level....but like you I am used to SLAMMED (had a 6" bodydropped blazer with a 4" chop top)but the TB isnt my daily its the wifes and 2/3 is plenty!!!!....lol
Cutting a coil can be fine if the coil is strait, but the coils on the TB and envoy are tapered and if you cut them then you may lose your mounting position. I will be posting pics soon of mine dropped ( like the other hundreds that have)...and you can see then.just got done cutting my headlight open still got one more to do...wasnt really that bad..dont be afraid to do it. its a pretty straight forward project.
as for cutting coils. nothing is wrong with that. general rule of thumb is half coil equals one inch. i know plenty of boys that run cut coils its all about keeping the heat down. u use a torch yea that coild shot, u just screwed the spring rate up. u use a cut off wheel, keeps the heat low and barely affecting the sspring rate. i dunno y belltech sells a 2 3 drop...as far as i know most suv/trucks sit with a 2inch rake. so if u do a 2 3 ur still gonna have a 1" rake, just makes no sense to me.
The new Belltech kit comes with a somewhat adjustable strut. You can change the spacers out to get a drop and add some drop springs instead of the stock to get the drop you need. Not as adjustable as coilovers or bags but also not as $$Is there anyone else that makes a coilover for the front other than Kbee? if you could get just the 4" springs and shocks for the rear and adjust the front accordingly to get the desired rake. didn't know if that was an option or not but i would also like to get a bit lower than a 2/3 or 2/4. hope you figure it out.
