i would think a simple adjustment to the t-bars will level it out.

They
Sell Coil Spacers if you have coils up front that will help the sag

His truck doesn't have coil springs. Idk about 1st gen s10 blazers but 2nd gen came with shocks and t-bars in the front, and leaf springs and shocks in the back.

Have your t-bars adjusted by a mechanic to set it back to stock height if the shocks don't fix it.

Considering that no where in this thread does the OP state that he has a 4wd, the recommendation is somewhat valid. All 2wd s-series trucks came with coil springs in the front.

I had to dig back through numerous posts to determine what the OP had, drivetrain wise.

But since the OP has a 4wd, the options are to crank the t-bars (easy and practically free) or replace the t-bars if they are found to be weak. The suspension should be adjusted per the information in the Tech Article (DIY) Index.
