This is what Ive been working on lately..It is a 2000 pewter S10. Its 2ks10's truck on the forum, and the bags are this trucks first mod, the wheels are the second. Hes got a lot more parts at home to put on, so please no 'needs mirrors, needs rollpan' cuz he has all that. On to the specs..


- 3/8" SMC valves
- 1/2" line
- 12 gallon 8 port tank
- Two Viair 450c compressors
- 145 psi switch
- 10 switch CCE box
- Two dual needle guages in a-pillar
- AirRide Coolride cups
- Suicidedoors shock relocators
- Suicidedoors 8" notch
- Monoleafs dearched 4"
- 4" blocks
- 17x8" Boyd Timeless 5s
- 235/40-17 Kuhmo tires











Ive been getting a lot of comments on this bridge setup I made for this truck, I spent a lot of time in making it look nice, but it really wasnt that hard to make, but people swear it is something that I bought pre-fabbed. Every bend you see is welded and smoothed and filled, and the bars are spot-on color matched pewter (same type of paint I use on firewall mini-tubs) even tho it looks more silver in these pics. The notches are also ground and smoothed.




Heres just a shot of the front wheel, you can see the Suicidedoors shock relocators behind it.

Yes hopefull he will be back for the 4-link, because I hate monoleafs and they ride like total shit heh..but its what he could afford.

Next in the shop, dunno. I have a lot of work lined up, so Ill have to see..

does mountin the shock relocator behind the brake instead of in front behind the control arm make a difference?

There isn't enough room to mount it in front of the control arm, not with the tie rods there, so thats why its behind.

BTW... great work Dave. I need to fly you out to AZ to work on my truck :D

Looks clean ,nice work. Can you tell the difrence from these pics compared to some of the DO IT YOURSELFERS. Don't get me wrong Thats how I started out doing it myself, but with something as important as the suspension you should let a qualified shop do it and practice on the less important things on the vehicle.

I think dave would qualify as a very well knowledged and professional installer.

I guess I don't understand if your saying he did a good job, or if he did a shitty job.

For anyone wondering, alteredimage is saying..

See these pics? This is good work. Compare it to DIY beginner work and you'll see a major difference. alteredimage, himself, started out doin his own work, but he highly recommends getting a professional to do your suspension work, as it's vital to your truck's long-term existance.


hahahahah.
