Clarification required - The rims you want to use "stick out" on the front and you want the tire outside sidewall to fit visually smooth with the outside of the fender panels on the front ? Then you are removing the front axle shafts on a 4x4 GMC Jimmy so that you can (Do what with it ?), before or after you have installed a lower kit ?

yes the wheels stick out i want them flush with the wheel well's . and i wanna lower the front lower more. i got 3 ich blocks in the back and i took torsion key bolt's right out to lower the front, i wanna leave the tranny in the truck .

and trasfuer case ,

If you removed the torsion keys completely, does it have any suspension travel left ? Won't you bottom out the front when hitting a bump or cut the tire on the wheel well sheet metal ? You are looking at some cost for custom aluminum rims (www.DupontRegistry.com) and the use of steel rims (www.Stocktonwheel.com or www.earlywheel.com) will be high but not as bad. How much does the front stick out ? Can you use wheel spacers on the back to match the front look, even though it wont be flush with the fender panels ?

2wd rims are deeper than 4x4 s10/blazer rims. The hubs on a 4x4 stick further out. Not much you can do about that. Get new rims?
