Yes. He's probably right, they'll flatten out after about 100K miles or so! I'd like to see an S-10 or SBlazer DROP an axle, seeing how the inboard is secured by 6 bolts to the stub axle and the outer is splined into the knuckle with a 36mm nut torqued to 180 ft.lbs! I wheel mine VERY hard and have NEVER had this happen. I now have the remanned Auto Zone CV shafts in mine with the limited lifetime warranty, so if they do go bad, back they go! IMHO the rear springs on these trucks wear out and start sagging around 80K miles or 8 years old, so your reclaiming lost inches anyway. It says STRANGER because you've made only a few posts on this BBS so far, the more you make the better the name you get. Good luck with the lift, and keep the S-10 dream alive!
