  1. Steering & General Suspension
    2001 GMC Sonoma 4.3l Automatic trans, regular cab, 6ft bed. I've had it since January and I'm not super happy with the ride. It's very stiff and bouncy and backbreaking. Occasionally on a really big bump I hit the bump stops on the rear end. It's not lowered or lifted. I'm happy with the stock...
  2. Performance Suspension
    So I had camber issues after dropping my 89 s10, 5 inch front drop, used a 2" drop spindle and 3 inch springs, 6 inch drop on the rear with leaf's and blocks. Had about 1 degree of positive camber after I got it aligned with shims. I wanted to upgrade everything anyways so I didn't mind much...

    On my 98 s10 the bolts that hold the shims in are spinning and I have tried resorting to welding but I can’t really get a welder it there to get anything done does anyone have a part number or a link for the adjustment bolts
  4. S10 / S15
    Been looking at a front coil swap, was wondering what people think about these 1982-2004 Chevy S10 - Front Coil Over Kit I don't wanna do the UMI or Ridetech stuff, just not quite in my price range to do everything.

    So a while ago i lowered my s10 with 3" drop springs and 2" drop spindles. Of course im having alignment issues now because you cant fit enough shims on the uppers. So i decided to redo all the controll arms, i want to go even lower because it Surprisingly doesnt sit that low, i still have about...
  6. S10 / S15
    Just thought I'd post about an issue I had with my Sonoma leaning substantially to the driver side after replacing the front shocks with Viking Crusader double adjustable coilovers, and rear shocks with Viking Crusader double adjustable shocks. After replacing, the rear was leaning down toward...

    Hey y’all, I’m new to the s10 forum, but I have a problem that I think somebody could help me solve. I have a 2003 S10 ZR-2, in January this year I found a discontinued 6” superlift lift kit from eBay. The lift kit came with upper control arms, but the upper control arms don’t seem to be long...

    Anyone have any reviews about heavy metal suspension systems. Was thinking of buying their lift kit for my 91 s10. But I don't want to buy some junk lol.

    hello i have 2003 s10 crew cab 4x4. the front end has a rattle sounds like a hammer tapping on the frame when on rough surface such a RR tracks or pot hole. i have changed all ball joints, torsion bar bushings, sway bar links, and shocks, but the rattle is still there everything is tight when...
  10. 2wd Droppin'
    Howdy, i was looking at a rough country 2" front and 2.5" rear lowering kit and I was wondering is there more benefits to lowering other than taking corners better? Has things like 0-60, mpg's, etc improved? is the drive-ability better, these things aren't aerodynamic at all, it feels like I'm...

    Hey guys, I have a '92 Sonoma 4x4 4.3L truck, and it bounces pretty bad anytime there is a change in the road. Example - driving down the highway at 70mph, if there is a dip in the road it'll bounce two or three times after going through the dip. I've replaced the shocks on all four...

    I have a 2002 GMC Sonoma. I'm interested in dropping it 3-4" what rim's would look good? I'm looking for a staggered look. Also what's a good suspension set-up to drop it? (The truck is completely stock. SLS 2WD Extended cab.)
