nope $50 is a complete rip off......

go to www.summitracing.com

get bel-6202 if you have an extended cab

and bel-6200 if you have a regular cab


btw those are belltech brand


and xtreme - s10... same blocks. all that matters is if you have an extended cab or regular cab. :thumbup:

lol

go back to summitracing and get the belltech drop spindles..

part number. bel-2100 there about 149.99

and if your truck is a daily driver. all i suggest is a 2/3 drop using the spindels. and btw they are way stronger then stock. a lot more reliable and the 3" drop blocks.

no it's the same exact ride. no difference

and about the warrenty. i know theres beeen a few threads on it, but dont quote me on it but i think everyone said no it wont.

and ya its harder to drive. for fact that you need to be careful when you drive it. your front end will hit quite a few times on steep driveways and it may rub a bit on a full turn, tight U turn.... as for daily driving. theres no difference at all

but IMO it's worth it totally. it looks so much better!

theres pics of mine.... see gallery below

for front drop you might try a set of dropped spindles, as far as the quality of ride goes...eg> bouncey and such, if you use the spindle, (front) blocks (rear) your ride will be just like from the factory, nice and smooth....I haven't got any installed on my current xtreme..I did however had the spindle/block setup on my old 85 xtended cab dime...thing rode better then my caddy L-dog

well...... no..... you need the 2" spindles for the front.... and the 3" blocks for the back....

and truck is level now. if you look at your truck now you can see your back end is about an inch higher then the front. and yes you can easliy fit 18's on it you just need to get the right tire size and you can no rubbing at all on them

yep just make sure you get the right blocks........ and for the install...... the blocks are really simple for install..... just unscrew the U bolts that are there now, then get your floor jack, lift up the axle just over 3" from the leafs, (if you buy angled blocks make sure you put them in the right way) slip in the bock..... then lower the axle onto the blocks... put the new u-bolts on and tighten

as for the spindles.... thats a whole different scene... you need a pickle fork and yes your tools and help from a few friends may make it alot easier. just search for a few threads on here and you'll pick it up on how to install them

You need the angled blocks if you have an Extended cab truck.
you need the regular blocks if you have a regular cab truck.
