Tire size should be on the driver side door jam and IIRC, the drop is 2" lower than regular factory height.

Alright, thanks. BTW, I've got a 99 Xtreme, 3rd door, stepside. Does anyone have a pic. of a stepside with the Stepshavers kit?

Thanks again.

chevy lowered the truck by de-arching the leafspring 1.5" and the front the used 1.5" drop coils and the zq8 or xtreme tires are .5" smaller than regular s-10's tires...

All that= 2" drop :yikes:
xtreme

WRONG

chevy lowered the leafs by pulling the top leaf which lowers it 1.5 inchs. the rest you said is correct

the normal S10 leaf pack has FOUR (4) leafs. and the ZQ8/Xtreme has only THREE (3) leafs. and a 1.5 drop coil in the front. then bigger front sway bar, and a rear swaybar(some with bumper shock)
that is what i said only in the way it was supposed to been said.The zq8 leaf pack is a stock normal leaf pack [4 leafs] with the top leaf pulled which gives the zq8[3 leafs]
