Leaf springs are super easy to do and cheap. Depending on the springs it can ride really nice. Go over to S10FOURUM, there is alot of good info on sas S10s. 4 Link will cost more and in my opinon not worth doing if you only have a dana 30. We just did one on my buddy's crew cab S10 and ran leafs in front. It rides better than stock.

Speaking of Jason Mosher, anyone seen him lately? His voice mail is full and he's not answering the phone anymore.

Alright, its been a while so here is a quick update. The 6 liter project has been abandoned due to funding. I'll be installing another small block to get up and running again. I got new front doors, fenders and core support for it the other day.



I had to put one on to see how they fit.



A little trimming and I shouldn't have any rubbing



The body work will start tomorrow. I pulled the front coils out today so I know how far the tire will go up into the wheel well. After everything is trimmed out I'll be repainting the whole thing with tractor paint and bedliner.

I also plan on cutting the rockers and lower rear quarters off and building a set of sliders.
