Ok i have a 90 yota and in the near future im going to getting it bagged then later down the rd im going to get it body drop. The reason im asking about the bags is because i have heard the frame has to be z'ed to lay frame i know about tranny crossmember that i needed. Now im new to the bagged world and ive helped a few ppl with theres but what does it meant the frame has to be z'ed? Im just wanting to know everthing that is going to have to be done to Lay frame in my truck and if i need spindles. I think rims wise im going to go with some 17s maybe bigger im not sure yet.

Z = cut frame in front of the cab/firewall, raise it up to clear the front crossmember (with the frame on the ground), then cut the front frame horns and drop them down the same diff. so you can mount the radiator support, and front end. You are essentially raising the front suspension, motor, and crossmember.

The frame will need to be z'd atleast 1" (I z'd mine 1.5" because I'm going to plate the engine crossmember) and the transmission cross member will either have to be raised or replaced. Once this is done if you want to make sure it lays flat you will need to cut where the factory cross members over lap the frame rail on the bottom. That joint will make the rails stick up around 3/16 of an inch.
