So I recently bought a 2002 Chevrolet S10 4.3L V6 Manual.

The thing had air ride set up already but is SUPER sketchy

Two pics of the air ride in the rear when I first got the truck.

The truck was driveable and needed gas really bad so I took it for a little ride down the road to get some gas.

Headlights were remove because we were going to switch them with my other truck but decided to not as these ones were LED's

So this thing had a sub box in the back that took up more then half the box!

Their was so subs in the thing so i had no problem taking the thing out will throw it up for sale for something cheap.
The pain in the butt part is that it was ported into the cab so I'm going to take some sheet metal and weld it closed on both sides and spray bomb it not to worried about it as long as it doesn't rust its in between the box will never be seen.

The front spring cups were not cut so the front two bags have some wear on the sides and are rubbing through the bags so I got 2 slightly used bags from a friend who works at a shop for $80 and am working on cutting out the spring cups while the 5 link I'm ordering from Nfamus comes in.

Will keep updating this as the build goes on!

When you post your pics, is there an IMG tag? That allows the pic to show up in the thread without having to click on them.

Yes their is but I thought it would be better if i left them links so the pictures didn't take over the thread, I can change them tho if its better to have the pictures their already.

I have another picture to add now anyway so I can add that too.


Pictures of the build in order, These are all the pictures in the links above.

Right side starts off rough!
This rim was torqed to something insane and felt like the studs were going to break getting them off use my jack handle as a snipe the rim was then pretty much fused on their and after 45 min of kicking and frustration she came off after a swift boot from the inside.

Cheap ass backyard two link, destroy that ASAP lol

Didn't it come with a 4 link in a box?
It did, it's some cheap ass eBay 4 link.
I was going to do a gas tank raise cross member anyway and was going to buy c notches from NFamus so I decided to not get a head ache from this cheap 4 link and buy the 5 link with the notches and the gas tank cross member snd it comes with the wish bone just a way more clean set up.

glad you got it home! looks like a pretty good truck to start with :) i had all kinds of visions in my head of what that differential was held together with (like leaf springs cut off after the axle.) that's not near as bad as i had enivsioned, but the 5 link is a better way to go.
