hey guys,

Ok so I bought this 93 S10 reg cab and i went to lower it by putting 2" drop spindles and 3" blocks but after putting the blocks in it was alittle to low for my liking so then i thought i would try and put the spindles on to see if i would like it when its all done but i starting taking off the caliper and rotor and the spindles that on the truck look like the are drop spindles but i wasnt sure and instead of wasting my time i didnt put them on. the only thing i noticed on the spindles for marking was they said 2100 on them now are these belltechs or just stock i would hate to send them back only to find out i was wrong and have to reorder i want to lower it alittle more than it is right now i need to get pics but i dont have my camera right now ill see what i can do about that. but i think im just going to return the blocks and get 2" drop instead of 3" thanks for any help

it is pretty easy to tell once you get the rotor off. if the spindle shaft is halfway b/w the ball joints then its probably a drop spindle. if the spindle shaft is right above the bottom ball joint its a stocker

the top spindle in this pic is a stock s10 spindle 82-03
the bottom one is a stock 98+2wd s10 blazer spindle (different brakes)
