ive got a 93 S-10 Blazer 4dr with a 6/6 drop. 2" Coils, 2" Spindles and 2" lower control Arms. The problem I am having is the vehicle is about one inch higher on the passenger side than the driver side. I have tried swapping the coils. The Rear Leafs and Blocks are properly seated and mounted. I am a big guy so i though maybe my fat ass was causing it. So i swapped the coils. I have tried everything I know to so. Cutting the coils is ghetto, that is not an option. I have also checked the coils to ensure they are installed properly into the upper cups and covering 1/2 of the second drain hole in the controlarm, as the should be.

Any Ideas?

Another thing i noticed is that the Paseenger side front wheel does not tuck as much as the driverside wheel.

i know the S10's have that problem because of the fuel tank being on the one side, so if you think about it 19 gallons of fuel @ 6 pounds a piece is like having another person sitting on the side...I think the blazer's tank is on the drivers side as well, if so thats why.

The first gen S-10 Blazer's gas tanks are in the rear of the vehicle mounted to both frame rails, in the center, behind the axle.

6/6 is a serious slam, there is bound to be, any number of circumstances causing the problem, If you read the fine print when ordering some of your parts, they say that all #'s are approximate drops, so if one thing is off or different it screws it up, most people I know with lowered vehicles have this problem, at one time or another.

I'd just get a rubber wedge and put it in the coil on the side that is lower...that should help bring it up to height! you can get those things at AutoZone fairly cheap!

here, maybe this paragraph will help out with my reasonings..."We have become part of something much more complicated than you or I will ever fully comprehend. We build more than just trucks, we build friendships, we build futures, we build our dreams. We drive our trucks low and hold our heads high because we have an unwritten and unspoken agreement that we will live life to the fullest and never fall victim to "the norm." Others laugh at us when we spend hours on end working on our trucks, yet shake our hands when we are done." -Wyatt Strange. I do not want my truck to be like every other S10 rolling around out there. I see mazda's all the time with toyota front ends, but its not everyday u see a s10 with a toyota front end on it

All S-10 are about 1" lower on the Driver side from the factory. You dont notice it as much until its lowered. Belltech make a 1" spacer to fix this problem its about $40

As for the gas tank, I dont think thats it. I had about 1/16th of a tank tonight and it was sill uneven. By the same ammount as if I was comletely full.

That is exactly what this sport is all about. Reminds me of this slogan , I think it's Nike or Fila or Adidas, "Don't just play the game, change the game" Everyone has the ability to be unique, just need to find out how to express that through your ride.

I know the Gas tank can not cause it. Remeber Guys this lean problem is on an S-10 Blazer. The Gastank is behind the rear axle between the frame rails. Go the gas tank can't be causing that. I believe on the 2nd gen blazers, the gas tank is actually on the driver side, but I am not positive. Does anyone have the part number for the belltech coil spacer?

now everyone may think im a complete dumba$$ for suggesting this but, could it be because that there is so much torque turning on the driveshaft, that when it turns it also shifts the weight of the car to the passenger side forcing it down one inch, then leveling it off, dont know but tried to help
