    It drops the body on the frame. Closes the gaps on the bumpers front and back.

    See this quote^

    Bumpers are mounted to frame. If you reduce the bushing size it drops the body in relation to the frame, thus closing the gaps @ the bumpers.

    I actually remembered that thread and looked it up. As far as easier and cheaper, I think this is the way to go. The body drop costs a lot , I was seeing $200 for Energy Suspension bushings or way more for S10 rubber ones, plus the trip to the wrecking yard for the cups and then there’s way more labor involved from what I see. To me, it makes more sense to raise the bumper up by using a few washers and welding 2 clips than to drop the whole body. And for me, I’m lowered to where I like it and don’t want to deal with any more tire clearance issues. Good to realize there’s more than one way to do it.

    Fair enough. Just an alternative I thought I'd point out relating to the thread.

    Going to poly s10 bushings could effect the ride quality a bit too. Its nuts how much they charge for rubber bushings...

    Great, something else I never noticed before that is now going to bother me.
