Asked by Apr 01, 2015 at 04:24 AM about the 1994 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS Extended Cab SB

Question type: Car Customization

i just installed a 3 inch belltech lowering kit for my truck, it came with the drop shocks and spindles for the front and i put the drop blocks in the rear. after it was all said and done my truck had about a 1 1/2 inch rake from the front to back and it was irritating me so i decided to remove the center leaf from the back. that made it sit perfectly align but the issue is now my truck is static with absolutely no rear shock play. THE RIDE SUCKS ASS! i was wondering if i get drop leafs will it help the ride quality without getting back that rake look and also what size drop leaf if so? idk what to

Lowering a vehicle will almost always effect ride quality and removing springs from the rear will just make it worse. Air bags may help with the ride in the rear

Do a frame C notch weld-in 6" drop kit & axial flip in the rear. (the leaf springs mount on top of the springs) Then add 2 Firestone air bags on the flipped leaf springs to the frame. I put the air bag valves in the wheel wells. My sb C-10 road nicely & towed good too, & with a hidden hitch drop down license plate / frame.
