Re: Lowered Colorado/Canyon Set Up's and Picture's

Started out stock Z85, no pics,
then went to a 2/3 drop with beltech coils and blocks and some zq8 wheels and tires that were too small

then after I painted it I decided that it needed to be lower, 4/4 drop with djm arms, 1" beltech spring, beltech drop leafs, and a 1" jtr block. also added some bigger tires

Then I swapped those tires and wheels for some 20x9 Inch cruiser alloys.
