Hey What? I hope you are still interested enough to answer one more question. I have a 2000 Blazer LT 2WD 4Door that I have converted to an electric motor. After stuffing a bunch of batteries along side the drive shaft, I now need to lift this beast about 5-6". I have read through a ton of posts on the S10Forum and the BlazerForum to no avail. Hoping you can point me in the right direction. I have visited eBay, Amazon, BDS, MaxTrac, SuperLift, FabTech, ChassisTech, BellTech, etc etc etc. I have even called these companies to see if anyone has any 3"-3.5" lift spindles. Argh! I'm an engineer by trade and a weekend mechanic, so I'm not afraid of a few mods. Any ideas?
If you prefer, I can post this in a forum....which one?
I created an account long ago, but haven't posted in years. Changed my password last week, but I am not allowed to create a new thread.
I'd like to post -- do I need a new account? My profile has the correct email address. Username is Fortissimo
The Admin told me I could post, but when I go into the "LSX Discussion" and attempt to start a new Thread, the system says I do not have permission to start a new thread. What do I need to do to be able to start a new thread? I want to ask the forum members questions about my plan for putting and LS engine in my 2003 S-10 truck. Thanks
Hey I'm unsure of who to talk to about lifting my truck. I am very new at all of this as I have never lifted a truck before. This site seems to have all the answers but I'm still confused. I have a 01 2wd s10 and I bought a maxtrax 3 in spindles and 2 inch shackles. It came with dot brake lines. I tried doing the shackles first since they are easier and once I pulled off the stock shackle and jacked up the truck, it was like the rear shocks were lifting the axle and tires off of the ground. So there was no way I could have enough slack between my leafs and the frame to put on the extended shackles. Les schwab told me I'd probly need bigger shocks to make up for the extended shackles. Also curious if I do get bigger rear shocks in the rear then won't I need bigger shocks in the front after I install the 3 inch spindles? I do have moog 5664 in the front. I'm really lost and since I been buying this stuff I haven't even been able to put stuff on
2000 Chevy s10 trk 4 cyl 2wd xcab. Just body lifted 2" and added 31" tires that rub on chassis. 1-2 " spacers should help. currently at shop due to wreck. willing to cut to help any possible fender/flare rub. will the spacers make the fender rub worse? any other suggestions?
