What do I need to lower my '94 s10 two inches?

Hey everybody...

I just got some new tires/rims. They are all P225/60R15. I thought that the truck would look good if it were lowered about 2" cause the wheels look too little. I just need to know what parts are required to achieve a 2" drop. Do I just need springs in the front and blocks in the back? Or do I also need spindles, ball joints, shocks, or anything else?

Thanks for any info..

i agree you should do at least a 4/4 drop.becaue once you do a 2/2 youll probaly say i wish i would have dropped a little more.at least that what i said with the first drop i did.just my 2cents.hope that helps.

Springs would require drop shocks and end up costing the same or if not more than a 2 inch drop spindle...

If you go 4 in the back you would need setback plates for the rear axle

okay.. so now i've been told that i will need all this stuff and its gonna cost around $2,000.... surely spindles and a couple of blocks don't cost 2,000.... is there anyone that has used just spindles and blocks?

if your going to drop it only 2 inches then id say drop spindles are the best way to go in the front...however in the back you would probly get a better ride from drop leafs instead of blocks...but again if you want it the cheapest go with spindles and blocks
