2 wheel drive = lowered, 4 wheel drive = lifted. I'd lower it, its a small truck, and would look silly lifted.

lifting the rear is easy, that s10 just has leaf springs, so all you have to do is install lift blocks and get a longer brake hose if its needed. The fronts alil more work, it all depends on how much lift. I dont know the application, but i dont know if the best way is to do it with bigger coils, or lift spindles, or whether you need new steering components. Theres just so many variables, you should find an s10 forum or something im sure they would know

but just a rough guess, if you brought your car to a shop and had it all done, id guess to see around $650

please please please, do not lift a 2wd truck, especially not one that small. its useless. a 12inch lift on that truck would put you about as high as a stock z71 for ford 4x4. if you wanna lift a truck, get a full size 4wd

Just go to autozone and get some monroe shocks and put those in and forget about lifting it. Just keep it stock. if u lift it you risk puting ur driveshaft in a bind and plus a lifted s10 would look really gay.

an SYE or TS drop pretty much eliminate the possibility for this, and you only need to worry about it if you're going skyward more than 2-3 inches.

Slam it and bag it with some 20's or 22's. You need to talk to the minitruck guys around KC. They could probably help you out with getting a good price on bags if you want em.

if you guys have never seen a lifted 2 wheel drive truck, youre messed up. thats how all off road racing trucks are, look at them. They do it with rangers and s-10's all the time. If i was you, id just get a body lift, but thats just my opinion. A suspension lift on a light truck is stupid, especially if its a daily driver.

oh btw, price on a body lift= the 250-300 range.

Yeah, skatin on 22's is cool, but honestly. Other things should be done before rims and a suspension.

I just dont wanna see someone slam a truck, and leave the rest completly stock.

eh, you'll get more cruisin in a lifted truck imo, but thats off topic, and you should not lift your S-10

IMO 4 inches of lift would make it look better.

You mean you aren't working on your Prelude-Stang that is getting a turboed LT1 which has been modified to an LS1? Correct me if I'm wrong, but all of your projects kind of ran together after the first 5 times. Maybe if you have some free time, you can rig another race against a car which is obviously better than yours, and then talk about it some more. Or better yet, why don't you notify your parents about that ticket you acquired for being a complete asshat?

Do me a favor...even if anyone else isn't sick of you like I am (however, there are a good few), don't drop by for another one of your visits any time soon...even if it's just for me, I'd rather not read your threads about you being a dumbass anymore.

yea, i dont have a problem with 1337's random make-believe projects, its a forum bs'ing is acceptable, its his talk about street racing and drinking and driving and stuff that really bugs me, may i please........

::clears throat:: from Doomsday's thread "Sticky: Welcome to the Automobile section! Please Read."

the following is rule #6

"6. It's awesome if you blew some guy away racing, but only if it was done legally. We don't condone illegal street racing, speeding, or braking the law. So please, if it is something that could get you in trouble keep it to yourself. We hold no responsibility for what someone's post about racing could make someone else do, but we would feel bad if something happened to one of our members. So please act smart and don't try what you may read if it isn't safe."

your a mod 1337, start acting like it or leave
