Belltech drop ball joints and blocks is what I have done on mine and been very happy with it overall.

So what you will be doing is pretty much removing the ZQ8 suspension with exception of sway bars.

ZQ8 suspension is different coil springs, leaf springs, front + rear sway bars and different tire/wheel sizes (17 or 18" pending the model year).

Make sure to do your homework or won't get to where you want your ride height.

Yeah everything up front is rusty and needs to be replaced so i need to strip it all out and start over. Do you have any thoughts on the arms I should look at?

U can just go with Belltech ball joints up front but I like the Djm lower control arms and blocks in the rear and I use Belltech adjustable coil overs. U can read the nation and she what everyone else is doing

I got Belltech adjustable coilovers and 3 inch blocks but the rear seems to be a 1/4 inch higher on the passenger side. I thought the Chevy lean was only up front.
