Who sold you a 3" body lift for a 1996 S-10? They only made 2" kits after 1994.

Funny, the description reads this:

This Performance Accessories body lift is design to fit your 1994-1997 Chevrolet or GMC S10 or S15 pickup. This kit raises the body of your truck by 2 inches to facilitate the use of a larger wheel and tire package.
And if you click on the linkk to see what vehicles it fits you get this:
