I would be glad to help you out!
With the Redrill 2 up 1/2 back.. How much did it move you wheel in the wheel well?also is there anyway I can Redrill 2 up without moving back? I have 3" blocks in the back

Sorry to bump a really old thread but, I have a question that I can't find the answer to. I've read nearly all of the threads on here about re-drilling plus other threads elsewhere. I am planning on doing the re-drill and was wondering if the 2" up and 1/2" back is from the center of the existing bolt or is it from the top of the hole? I would assume it's from the center of the existing bolt. Also, I have drop leafs, can this be done with those or do I need to get regular springs with blocks? Thank you!

MLarson,
I measured 2"up and 1/2" back from OEM hole center. I have the belltech 3" springs and they fit perfectly fine.
I did need a 4degree shim to correct my pinion angle though, FYI. I would do the redrill and then verify the driveshaft angle against the previous measurements.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Sufarry, You have a few options here, go up ~1.25" and back less than 1/2" or go up ~2" and back 1/2". Going back is mandatory if you want be able to go up as high as possible to get the perch trimmed flush with the bottom of the frame. If you look, the area if the frame above the perch travels up at an angle, and the only way to get the spring end hoop to not make direct contact with the frame is to follow the upward angle back slightly as you go upward. In my opinion there is no upside to consider doing this mod unless you go up(and back) far enough to get the perch trimmed flush with the bottom of the frame.

Thank you for posting this! I'm fairly new to the hard body scene and I put in 3 inch blocks oh about 2 months ago, and I'm really wishing I went with 4 inch. Do you think this could get me the extra inch lower I want to be? And would the final ride height be daily driveable?

This should get you where you need to be. Lots of guys run 3 blocks with a redrill.
