stock drop of the xs are 1.5 drop so you have a 3.5 3.5 drop now.

the belltech 2 inch drop springs on the customers trucks ive done lowered the zq8 trucks .5 to .75 more. 3 inch drop springs will lower 1.5 to 1.75 more and you will need 225 50 16 tires which will lower it even more. the air dam will not be able to fit a soda can laying flat under it.

as for the rear if you go with 3 inch blocks you will need to cut the bracket off

heres on how to do thathttp://www.s10forum.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=690

i would just go wtih 2 inch drop springs and 3 inch blocks

YOUR TRUCK WILL BE TO LOW with that size but do it if you want.

lots of fenderwell gap also 215 40 17 is a 24 inch tall tire stock is a 26 inch tall tire.

also are they 4 or 6 cyl springs. 1 inch drop springs for a 4 cyl lowered my buddys truck 3 inches on his v6.

on bottom u said you used 2 inch spindles not springs. so wait right now in front you only have stock springs and 2 inch drop spindles rear just 2 inch blocks right

if you can measure to the top of teh fenderlips all the way around it would help me a lot.

you need to be at least at least at 24 inches to fenderlips from teh ground to make the 215 40 17 look right. seriously id invest in some 235 45 17 and 255 45 17 rear looks good and fills the wells up a lot more

what size tire are you running right now
