well i got the rancho 5000 0-3 inch shocks , the grand cherokee front v8 coils, im pickin up 2 inch spacers an rear leafs( i think they are 90 year leaf springs) tomarrow to make up the difference for the lift im gonna get for the rear with the s10 springs Mr. Green that are going in the back, i was wondering if im going to need to do anything to the s10 springs to make them fit ect...an yes i got the bolts to replace the ones that will probally snap off ( probally all of them) . an another question if anyone can help me out.. when i hit a hole bump ect going around a bend my a$$ end wants th slide out into the turn( death wobble ? shock ) an when i put the new springs an shocks on would this correct this an did anyone have this problem? all of my front end parts seem tight an i cant find any play thanks guys ~ phil

hmmmm...not sure about that one. Did you just install the S10 springs or you add any leafs to it? I'd PM Vic (unless he responds here first), he's got S10 leafs under his junk and I know he's got drop shackles and added a couple of leafs from his stock pack to get 5".

Phil - Get that T-case drop in there pronto!!!

The vibes from the driveshaft alone will require you to need dental work. Trust me !!
