ZQ8 History

The prototype of the ZQ8 was first seen on an older S-truck and was code-named "Zeke" ·

The ZQ8 was designed in 1991 ·

The ZQ8 was first put on a production vehicle in 1996. ·

It is now marketed as the Sport Suspension Package and comes with P235/55/R16 tires, 16" aluminum wheels, ·

It comes standard on the S10 with the 1994-1998 SS and on the 1999-2001 S10 Xtremes·

The ZQ8 option on a new truck costs $703 (invoice is $604.58) ·

With the 94 to 98 SS package, the ZQ8 cost $455 as an option. With the New Xtreme the ZQ8 option costs $459· :thumbup:

i'm not too sure about this but, did the zq8 come with a stiffer frame than a regular s10, or is it exactly the same frame?

and does the zq8 come with a thicker front swaybar?

thanks.

Z Q 8....................!

No I dont beleive a ZQ8 had a different frame.........!
I remember in magazine article they were gonna ad the ZQ8 Componets to a NON ZQ8 truck...!
The ZQ8 was just a specific set of componets
No Special frame included............!

I bet in the last 6 years since he posted that, he's figured it out....or doesn't give a shit.
Wow damn what about newer guys that dont know any better, they see this and take it as truth when really its wrong, givin out wrong information is not ok beside what harm does it do to bring up an old thread if there is wrong information in it damn

Hey guys,
I have a 97 2wd standard cab not lowered. I'm looking at getting a set of replica ZQ8 Wheels from a caompany called "Wheels and Caps". They sell them on e-Bay without the center caps and they also have a regular web site www.wheelsandcaps.com.

What I was need to know is this. Has anyone ever heard of these guys and are they ok? They said that the Wheels were manufactured in China and meet all GM and DOT standards. They said that they have not had any customer or quality issues with these wheels. My second question is will these fit my stock supension with a set of 255/65 r16 tires or will I have to go with a 255/55 r16?

Thanks,
M
