Are those the S10 spaced ZR1's?

BTW, they're gonna look awesome!!! I'm jealous of your running truck...

I can build you a TBI motor, but it'll cost you.

got the wheels back from the powdercoater. fronts are SLP third gen specific/2wd s-series specific 17X8s w/ 255/40/ZR17 BF Goodrich KDW. the fronts don't require spacers/adapters. the rears are ebay 17X9.5's w/ 7.4" of backspacing, so they require 2" adapters. i got the adapters powdercoated as well. the rears have 315/35/ZR17 G-Force KD's.



next up is to figure out the center cap issue. then i need to get some hotchkis 1" g-body springs to replace these crappy sagging belltech 1" springs.

looks REALLY BADASS
but do us all a favor
get the dustcap on the front painted black
or even powder coated if its an option (will probably stick better than paint) because it sticks out like a sore thumb as of right now

how much drop are you running
I am guessing due to your name and the other post stating that you used beltech 2100 spindles that you are a ZQ8 = 2/2 or 2/3

have you always been that low or is this the first time you have added the 2" spindles up front

looks damn good
but to keep with the bravada look up front you need to paint teh valance

I like the fender flares - will probably have to run those since my fronts stick out a tiny bit...

Oh, and it's time for a roll pan!!!

3/4, 2" spindles, 1" (more like 2 or 2-1/2") crappy belltech springs. i used to have zq8 front suspension and front/rear swaybars, but i upgraded to bigger ones, so my name really doesn't make much sense anymore.

i've always had a 3/4, but like i said my belltech springs are sagging more and more w/ each passing year .
