    Hey fellas,

    Picked up the minty 199 2wd suburban last week, my dads gonna cruise it in florida, but we need to lower it badly.

    Upon initial thoughts, 4/6 drop and were good. Now looking into it, belltech kit is a 7" rear and you have to change the front hanger. DJm is a 5" rear and you have to change the front hanger. Does anyone know why, with the same components, there is a 2" variance between those kits?

    Ive never had a OBS platform before, so any help would be great appreciated!

    It's been 13 years since I've lowered an OBS. But from I recall, I put new hangers and shackles on with a 4" rear drop. Pretty sure they were the front hangers.
    Why? That I don't know. I just remember having to do it.

    The Burb is rad as hell. You should post some pics in here!
