Hey Guys,
My truck is finally getting lowered in a little less then 2 weeks (May 4) I am heading into Chicago to have my uncle help me with it and use his lift...beats laying on the ground.

I am going with a 4/5 belltech drop (2" coils, 2" spindles, 3" leafs, 2" blocks). I have heard from a few people that once it is lowered, it will not sit at the same height (drivers side to passenger side)...one side of the truck will sit higher. Have any of you ran into this? Is so what are some solutions?

Thanks,
Scott

on mine I put 2in. spindles, 2in springs (with an extra coil hacked off) 4in. angled blocks and monoleafed. The pass. side sits up a little more than the driver too. Also I put on some Toxic Drop shocks up front with some airshocks out back so I could adjust on the go. I KNOW I KNOW, i need bags BUT seeing as how I spent $600 in 2 rim repairs and 2 new tires last month I'm having to start over on saving lol.

It is fact that ALL S-10's and blazers sit lower on one side than the other. This problem is amplified when you swap out the factory suspension components. I've had 4 trucks and they all did it, any there's about 20-30 in my area with the same problem. Keep in mind the the driver and the fuel tank on the trucks are on one side. There is a fix though, BellTech makes a polyurethane bushing for one coil spring specifically for this "defect". Call your local shop and have them look into it. If you have no luck, get back to me, I'll try to find the part ## for ya.

Actually its the other way around. Chevy S-10's sit 1" lower on the driver side from the Factory, you just don't notice it at stock height.

My 97 sits 1" lower on the driver side with a 4/5 drop

Left side


Right side
