Hi my name is Mike. I live in Cloverdale and have been married for four years. I have no kids and make my living as a Mechanic. My hobbies are golf and building trucks. I have a 1990 SS454 C1500 Chevy and my newest build is a 2001 SAS GMC Sanoma (NOT another jeep!):party0010: I haven't been on the trails since I was a Kid with my Dad. So I though I would build one of my own (with the help of a buddy X-Factor). I haven't got any pics yet but he has posted a few on this site. I hope to meet some of you soon.[cheers]

Thanks. Thats was one of the main reasons I when with coils in the front. Front leaf spring lifts on S10/Sonoma are always tall. Plus I like the look of coils up front.:D

Casselman

You need massive lift cause the damn frames are so low on the s10's lol, I think your the only coiled s10 around here for now :D

Rock Sliders are next for sure. I also wont to get a heavier front diff cover. Took the truck up to Hut Lake on my days off and it worked well. No problems so far. happy penis Did a bit of Upper Hut as well but didn't try the falls yet. Turned around at the turn around before.:(

I would like to have put at leased a larger front axle in but this was a reasonable choise for the trails I plan on running. Pluse I am only running 33 inch tires. Maybe I'll do a 30 spline Chromoly Alxe swap later.

Hey welcome to the site man. I like the truck, looks like it would do well out in the bush. Dana 30 in the front should be all you need in thag sonoma.
