is there any company that makes a 1" spindle? or 1" drop method for the front of a 2001 s-10, I have a 2001 Xtreme, xtra cab, stepside, that i did a 2/2 with belltech spindles and blocks, but the front is a little lower fthan i expected for some reason, the 1" drop would be absolutely perfect for it, please help. I'm willing to get rid of the spindels or use a method that would allow me to keep the spindles on also, but still bring it back up and inch or so, and plus i cant fit my 18's nicely without it going back up an inch -=/....please help -=/

2fknlow: I haven't seen a 1" spindle but that is not to say that there isn't one. Try PMing 98SSOnNOS, he is a fantastic source of information. Belltech makes a 1" spring but I thing you already have a 1.5" drop spring because you truck is an Xtreme. Ask 98 if you can just clip an inch off your existing springs, then put your stock spindles on and sell the drops for a few bucks!

what if i were to put a set of regular s10 coils on there? wouldn;t that raise it back up an inch or so since the regular s10 coils are 1.45 inches or some sh*t longer...i dont need the chassis lifted i just want the fender well and the body lifted back up a lil in order to fit my rims and level it out.

no one makes 1 inch drop spindles only 2 inch.
2 inch drop coils = about 1/2 inch more drop than stock. or 3 inch drop coils= about 1.5 inches more. thats with the stock spindles.
Finally...someone else besides me understands that! I do not have a 3" drop on my X I have a 1.5"...cuz I used 3" coils! You wouldn't believe how many peeps argue that with me!

and this is what my drop looks like!

no..I have a 1.5" drop...just because it came with a 1.5 coil doesn't mean anything...it still came from the factory like that...

I have a 1.5 drop over factory height...:rant:
