I have a 2002 S10 Crew! With a custom solid front axle leaf spring suspension. It is on 33" Kumho Mud terrains, has a dana 30 in front for now, and a ford 8.8 in back for now!! Total lift is about 8 inches; 10 with tires!! It has a mini spool in the back; still looking for a locker for the front, seeing as I need to stick the front driveshaft in!! Everything else is stock, but not if I can help it!


Glad you made it over to S-10CrewCab.net!

good to see you made it over hear cant wait to see your crew dirty
Oh, this is good information. Someone knows the new member and is hinting that he may be a mall crawler.....

















just j/k and welcome to the forum.

You keep referring to the 8.8 and the D30 as temporary. I have seen both axles built and they can do well with 33s or even 35s with finesse being utilized on the skinny pedal. Check into the RCV axle upgrade on the D30 and remain there.

Now, we need your profile filled out and if, you don't have pictures then "it never happened"! :wave:

Looks GREAT. Be careful with the rubbing while you wait on the lift. I would imagine that things are tight right now.

Walt, did you have your torsion bars turned up? What about bumpstops? What about shocks?

Cranked TBs to the max. Stock keys.

Procomp es9000 shocks. Listed ranchos by mistake. They don't compare to bilsteins though.

I don't remember about the bump stops...

Thanks bud and I just now found this Forum haha. But yeah it was tight, but now I have the BL on! Now all I have to do is drop around $700 in it to replace all ball joints, pitman and idler arm, sway bar links, and an inner control arm. :cry:

And what would yall recommend for shocks? Currently I'm thinking the ProComps ES1000's, yea or nay?

How long do you plan to keep the truck?

Bilstein is truly a lifetime shock and well worth the investment. Ride like a Cadillac on the asphalt and perform like a trophy truck offroad.
