“Another Black S-10”
Head to Head
NO LONGER OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My old work truck/beater. It was a REAL piece of crap, when I first got it. Did all the work to it the first two months I had it. It was fun as hell to drive. Had it for about 3 years and sold it. Took the money and bought a new living room set with the $1900 I got.
The way I lowered it improved the handling and weight load. Five inch drop up front. Three inch Bell Tech spindles with two inch springs. The rear was cheap as hell to drop. Three inch drop blocks, $30. Cut the rear carriage bolts. take the bottom leaf spring and flip it underside down on the top of the leaf springs. Install new carriage bolt, $.75 each. Tight them down. Cut the extra off the bolt. That gives you another three inches of drop. the benefit of this is. It increases your load weight for haulling. BUT it stiffins up the rearend greatly. The suspension was so tight and increased the handling so much. I could take cloverleaf raps/exits at 65mph with little to no body roll.
About “Another Black S-10”
I traded my "P.O.S." Ranger for this truck. I didn't leave it as low as it was when I got it.. I put the original springs back in it but left the lowering spindles in and had to replace the old blocks with new blocks. I've got American Racing wheels on it.They really dressed this baby up! I haven't done anything to "hot rod' this truck yet, but working to change that! I drove the truck for a while before the trans started failing on me. It did make a couple trips to Minnesota before it finally gave up completely. We brought it up here on a tow-dollie behind our GMC Rally van. I didn't know the trans in the van was getting bad until it blew overdrive out somewhere in Wisconsin. But that's a whole other story! It was sitting behind the shop I worked at with the transmission in pieces in boxes in the back of the cab for a couple years waiting for something to happen. That "something" happened in October, 2013. I got laid off from that shop and had to bring the truck home. That meant I had to work on it. There's plenty of upgrades planned! Been tinkering with it off and on since October. Still nowhere ready but I haven't given up yet!
