Re: Lift kit??

It cost $2200.00 Can Funds and you can buy in the U.S. for the same. as for lifting the truck to those tires eeehehee...I'm looking into a small lift and have found the S-10 to be very short on extra stuff to add on...one of my three Mech. told me for the best of both worlds with out the tire's, an air bag over the spring has been mentioned oncw by a mechanic and varified by a Ford and a Toyota driver...one of which has a traier and other a camper on it. I've look at body lift My #1 said yah but you have ...list... vs a suspension lift...were does it end (Trail Master has a body lift of 3" but does not recommend any other lift at the same time <body roll> build your 3" lift yourself with 3" sq. tubeing If you have any other results I'm lookinfg for a two inch lift inthe rear for my lake boat. thanks, Willi

Re: Lift kit??

go to www.truckaddons.com look under suspension then fill in the rest but superlift is the only one for s-10. ive seen the trailmaster 5" lift. with a 2" body that cleared 33" with little trimming

Re: Lift kit??

I had to run a Rancho 3", 2" body and SAW torsion bars cranked up 2".. Then I trimmed the fat on the front fenders and it works well.. Next set of tires im gong with are 33x10.5.. The 12.5 wide do look really good and perform awsome but im mostly on the road with this thing now.. The narower tire will help when hitting the curb and not scraping tire..[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Lift kit??

Well depends on how much money you got.. And your mechanically inclinded.. You could go SFA(solid front axle) yea its some work and tinkering.. I hear if u go spring under front you can gain 5" or spring over to 8" and If you really wanted to you could play around with spring sets up and get anywhere from 5-8 how ever u wanted to go.. I have not done it yet but try going to www.s10extremist.org and check out there BBS and the Susp. Swap forum and you can find all the info you need.. I would do it before i did TM.. I mean its cheaper.. more lift.. and SFA is a hole lot better then IFS.

If i could do it all over again I would have a solid axle under there with coilover King shocks, disk brakes all around running 35's and still have 2K in my pocket..
