Buick GN or GNX maybe?

S-10 Extreme?

S-10 Cyclone or Blazer Typhoon?

Hurst Olds

Any of the AreoCoupe Monte's and GP's?

Not sure of any, but these are the Limited Performance options that I can think of. Might especially look into the Cyclone/Typhoon trucks. I know these set much lower than stockers.

There are tons of different pin locations on spindles.. What car are you running? This would let us know what might be lower.

if it ever came on an oe app even limited app you can run it. if a 1.5 or 2.0 drop was ever used then we can run one(even if its belltech). I simply have to prove it to the trk owner. same for rear end suspension set up

What chassis is it for???? Most use different pin locations, to know what the drop might be we need to know what the spindels are going on.

I know they are heavier but the stock older impala spindels have a pin location about 2 inches higher than the metric. We ran a metric front with them and ordered 2 inch drop S-10 spindels and found the pins were in the same location. You will need the steering arm and ideler form the Impala. THe advantage is you will have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern on the front and the 11 inch rotors.
