Default Lowered the S10 this weekend - pics

Finally got the truck lowered !

Static 3/4

Beltech 1" Coils
DJM 2" Spindles
and 4" Blocks for now...undecided if I will go with springs or not.
I need the load to be able to withstand a quad or towing my trailer.

Also painted the rear drums black and front calipers red.

All that left in my eyes is the mirrors....those are next!


Here she is.... was playing with settings on my camera....so there are few shots here....


EDIT: The first 2 pics are showing the nose bleed I used to get...LOL..oh and i ditched that chrome tailpipe







Now on to the drop

I love it! My first vehicle was a 94 *-10. It was the first year of that style. I still miss it. I never got around to doing much to it. Kids hapeened before the mods did. Anyway, very nice!

Thanks guys!


The rims are ZQ8 rims found on the xtreme blazers and the s10 with the ZQ8 suspension package.
Bought them last fall, I stole them too $265 for all 4 with like new treads!

Im trying to learn how to USE my camera now

I am pretty happy with the results.

Using the camera on AUTO is just useless from what I have been reading.

Thanks!

Awesome. I was looking around for an S10 a while back. No one around here has any decent S10s. Everyone abuses them.
