What kind of dirt roads you driving on? My truck does fine on groomed dirt roads and it's lower than that. Looks good though. It'll look even better with the back lower.

Thanks Mo.
I work in the High Desert. Close to Joshua Tree Monument. Where the streets have no name. (U2 reference) Most roads are groomed some not maintained at all.
I drove it to work today then took a company truck from there. I really like it that low. I'll probably pull that leaf any way.

I have no idea other than 2" spindles and 4 link style rear w/coilovers. It has dropped coils in the front and I wish I knew how much because I am getting crazy bump steer. I am thinking of replacing the coils with stock ones or maybe 1" dropped coils. I would however like to keep at the same height it is now or close. The whole truck sits 1/4" lower on the drivers side (without me in it). I am wondering also if I could have a weak spring or something else going on. Nothing the under front picture. The a-arms and tie rods are running uphill. Anyone have any ideas to share?

Front - 17"x8" - 245/40ZR17
Rear - 17"x10" - 315/35ZR17
LT1 w/T56 6-speed

Sweet truck. The "Chevy lean" is quite common due to all the extra weight on the drivers side of the vehicle vs. the passenger side. The best way to handle it is to add a coil spacer to the driver side or trim the passenger side coil.......or add coilovers to the front. As for the bump steer my truck is a little lower than that and it isn't too bad. Maybe have the alignment checked?

Thanks. With a 1/4 difference in the sides. How much of a spacer should I add? I have only seen 3/4" and 1" spacers. Won't that be too much?

This is my second post on this list. Bought this truck for 1000 buck have another 1700 into it on top end rebuild 4-4 drop and tires. It has spindles, 2 in coils, 3 in blocks, set backs and a leaf removed. Total drop with tires is actually 5.5 in the front and 5 in the back.

My last 94 s10 single cab had the same McGaughys lowering kit but i ran the 17 inch 02 camaro ss 10 spoke wheels with a 275 wide tire. I really wanted to get another set of those but theyre becoming hard to find.
