Yes, they're Belltech drop spindles for a 2000 Blazer rwd. Checked the receipt just now. Belltechs logo is also cast into them and Belltech only makes drop spindles, not standard spindles.

Any idea how much Moog 5660 springs will lower the front? Vs new 5602s. I've seen the charts but it's confusing to a simpleton like me. Shorter free height, firmer. Hoping for 1"

My 5662s were lower than that out of the box with the same setup. Click my sig line; it's the first page of the build thread.
that was going to be my next question, maybe those springs are not 5662s

Two pn's for the springs are mentioned here.

If they are 5662, trimming them is a good option.

Replaced the springs with Moog 5660 units. Much easier to install than the 5602 due to a shorter free standing height, still a bit of a pain though.

It's about an inch lower up front. I'll probably end up doing tall lowers this winter but I'm done with the suspension for now.
