Check Out That Chassis

By Scott Weney of S&W Racecars


I have an S10 the rear weight is 1058Lbs. I run Art Morrison Ladder Bars and Coil Overs. What Rate rear spring do I need? Total truck weight wet is 2720Lbs. Thanks alot.

Most of the S-10’s that we do, we use 80 to 95# springs. If this is a race only truck I would go with the 80’s, you want the suspension to be softer then the tire on the rear and you need a good shock and spring on the front to help transfer the weight to the rear.
