View Full Version : Chevy S10 concerns

03-09-2011, 10:14 PM
I replaced the shocks and purchased a 1994 chevrolet s10 lowering kit (http://www.drivewire.com/vehicle/chevrolet-s10/lowering-kit/) I did a lowering job of w" blocks in the back and 1" springs in front. The pickup has 17" alu wheels and 255/50-17 tires. I noticed bad handling after the lowering job. Can anyone tell me if I did the right thing, or should I perform the appropriate toe-setting? Thanks!

I'd be concerned if I had a '94 S-10 too, let alone a dropped one. Best o' luck.
You might want to elaborate on "bad handling" to get a more constructive response...

when you beat the ball joints out you may have f---ed one because it was worn out. besides that why only an inch -not worth the time in my opinion

haha or that, id certinally like to crush my s10 blazer and get something more bush/trail friendly but i cant complain when it was given to me for free, the winch its self is worth more then the blazer

most likey the root of the issue, also ball joints with 200,000 now operating at a difernt angle, also old sacked out control arm bushings.

i had one with 3inch belltech spindels and 2 inch drop coils, put in ploy bushings and a new sway bar.. thing was un real, i could rip yealds onto the highway at 140kms no problem.

then i realized that lowrider mini trucks were gays and sold it.
