Since they are made for a spring under set up and have a very high arch built into them, I think they will most likely provide to much lift and a very stiff ride.

they are still made for s10 weight so i doubt they would give a bad ride.

So do the 2wd S-10's have a lowering block from the factory or do the ZR2's just have lifted leafs?

This would be interesting. I'm curious about the length also. Good deal, Mark, if it turns out you've got something.
