Custom Chevy S10 Front Shock Relocation - On the Rebound
Custom S-10 Shock Relocation
By far, one of the hardest trucks to install shocks on once it's 'bagged is the S-10. Over the years, Fabricators have tried placing the shocks in all kinds of areas in front of and behind the hub assembly, only to find that there's just not enough room.
Hundreds of 'bagged-S-10 owners have ground down perfectly good shocks and damaged the inner lip of their wheels due to relocated shocks that just didn't provide enough clearance.
Since there's limited room for the shocks to go in, installers are starting to get creative, such as Art Gomez at GO EZ Customs. He decided to do the unthinkable and place these suckers on the antisway bar. Now, we know what you're saying: "You can't weld to spring steel" and "How will that work?," among others. Well, since the truck is already 'bagged, we don't think you will be running it in a NASCAR event, so for this purpose, the welding to the antisway bar will be fine. Secondly, the essential job of the shock is to control the bounce, so in this situation, that's exactly what it will do. So chill out, and follow along as Art shows us how he did it.
