It depends on how big of a lift...

Are you talking about making a non-ZR2 sit like a ZR2? I don't think ZR2 leaf springs are actually any bigger than a regular S10 leaf, I'm pretty sure it just has to do with where the mounts are located. I'm pretty sure that is the main difference in general, the location that suspension stuff mounts to the frame. The A arms might be longer in the front too, I really don't know for sure though.

Here is a good page to look at if you don't know what kind of lift to get.

Hope I helped

(This should probably also be in Chevy Tech)

i remember there being a frame width difference as well, but they may just have been the 94-95 trucks.

there is a diffrence between ZR2 and non Zr2 trucks. thats y when you look at lift kits for the 2 they list them as seperate part numbers meaning there diffrent kits.

Correct the frame geometry is diff. The Z achives its lift from lower mounting points for the suspension and also is slighty wider. So no you will need to find a reg S-series lift for your truck!

A 5" or 6" suspension lift runs around $2,000 new. Depending on what you have to spendyou can start with a 2" body lift for around 200 or a 3" for a 94 s-10 will fit also except for the rear bumper brackets but you could fab those up eazy and it runs around 160. Or if ya got lots of cash go for a solid axle HP dana 44!
