We just measured 2" up and 1/2" back, then made a template so that all 4 came out even. I haven't had any negative effects from it and neither has Tweezy. His has been done for a good while too so I'd def recommend that and blocks. How big of blocks depends on a few things (tire size, amount of drop u want)

Half of how high you drill. 2" higher = 1" drop.
