Default S10 Long Arm Solid Axle Conversion Kit

Sorry if this is old news, I did a search and didnt come up with anything so I will post this and hope it is a newly released. I noticed Synergy Offroad had a new lift kit for s10's. This new "Super 10" kit is supposed to allow the use of a Jeep Dana 30 or Dana 44 axle with coil over springs.



Synergy Offroad

4wd Factory

Off-Road Direct

Off-Road Direct has the kit but seems to have all the wrong info and pictures attached

I'm pretty sure they just came out with that. I would have got that instead of the leaf spring kit.

alot of people prefer coil springs due to more flex and probably other reasons i dont know. i went with leaf springs 3 years ago and would never change. way less moving parts and stuff to break. retardly simple design havent had one problem with yett

Yea I thought that the leaf spring set up just looked better , as far as durability . I was reading about the ford twin i beam front end and that has coil springs . The way they were talking that setup had real poor articultion . My truck is being built to go staight , 150 ft as fast as I can , so I don't need articultion . Thank you for answering my question .

Off road direct actually makes the kit themselves, but have other people sell it for them. So any info on off road direct is the real info.

This looks like a kit that would on a Cherokee or a grand Cherokee. Coil springs flex a lot more but the simplicity of leafs I agree is nice

Leaf spring is deff simpler for sure. But steering is a bit of a pain if I want to go spring over I have to build or buy a z-link or buy a bolt on crossover steering kit. Both kits are great kits. My axles came out of a grand Cherokee so they were ready for the super 10th kit. I am only doing mud runs with my blazer so either kit would work just fine I would imagine.
