    Yo son. I said cheap for a reason. I got a 93 s10. It ain't exactly bling bling. 3" spindles, and 3" blocks will do the job, I don't plan to keep this thing for a lot longer anyway.

    If you're not planning on keeping it, why mod it? Someone else is gonna buy it (maybe) and with crappy parts under it, could maybe bust themselves up with your $5 investment... I was trying to help.

    I figure on havin it for another year, so i was tryin to get some new tires, and while i was at it, if i could find some spindles for 150 and blocks for like 40, i spend like 200 plus alignment and im dropped a bit. If i dont get rid of it, thats cool, if I do, im just doin some other cat a favor.

    So why not just get a set of 3" springs and do it the semi-right way. But its your truck do whatever you want even when everyone else, that most likely knows more than you, tells you not to

    Hey, we tried! When his spindle snaps and busts his head open like a watermelon dropped from the 12th floor, we'll know why!

    2" drop spindles are $150US and blocks are $25. An alignment will be around 40 or so depending and where you go.

    That'll be $250 after taxes and done right, and a 2/3 or 3/3 drop isn't really that much. $250 isn't much money when you think about your life being involved. Hell, I goto college, work 32hr a week, pay a mortgage, insurance everything...and that's the one thing I don't cheap out on are vehicle parts, especially for the suspension. I don't care how much it is, you save up to save your life. I've seen lots of problems will no-name parts, that I stick with trusted brands.

    If you need to find out then that's fine, buy them, but if they don't give you a real 3" drop, don't bitch about the wasted money.

    Drop the shit.

    We're just trying to warn you about the 3'' spindle and how it's not exactly safe.

    You other people, it's quite apparent he's not going to listen to any kind of advisement that is posted here. So just drop it. Both sides!
