just start off by removing the adjuster screws and see where you are at from there. you may not need to do the flip if you like where it sits after the screws are out....every vehicle is different so just try it and see where it gets you....good luck

I have already taken out my torsion bars and got about three inches in the front. Now i am looking for an inexpensive to put it to the ground.

are you sure you took out the torsion bars? or the adjuster bolts....i wouldnt recommend taking out the bars unless you beef up the springs....that supports about 20% or more of the weight of the front end....
as for putting it on the ground....you will want to bag it to do that and its not inexpensive.

Okay, I've got all the info I need for lowering my X (99 Sport) from this thread. I only have one question more: I looked at the rear (single) leaf and there seems to already be a lowering block in there! I bought my X used, so I don't know if the prior owner fiddled with it, but did anyone else's X have something between the leaf and the rest? It looks more like 4 small (~1/4" to 1/2") blocks rather than one big block.

I want to get about 2" lower, should I get a three or four inch block and take out the stuff thats already there or a two inch block and leave it?

PLEASE HELP ME :D
