Re: Tired of replacing tires
Sounds like you need a better alignment shop or don't buy Chinese tires?
Never heard of any stock S10 having such bad tire wear issues in a single year.
Are these like, used tires you're buying?
Did an actual shop do the alignment or did you?
You should investigate the actual cause of the alignment problem and fix that first.
Otherwise, sure, rockauto and other websites sell all the parts you need. Keep in mind there's very little difference in replacement parts, an end link from NAPA, CARQUEST, etc. will be the same as, and may even be moog. The only parts to watch out for and not buy is the ebay stuff.
There is no easy upgrade for S10 rotors and calipers unless you swap to blazer spindles which accept the blazer 2 piston calipers. Used blazer spindles are relatively cheap at most wrecking/parts yards. Downside is they use a unitized wheel bearing hub which neither lasts as long, nor is as cheap, as inner/outer bearings on the S10 style spindle.
