Chevy S10 concerns

I replaced the shocks and purchased a 1994 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

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.
