I would recommend Doetsch Tech shocks or shocks from Ride Tech depending on budget.

If you can shoot me some measurements at ride height from mount to mount, Id be happy to spec out something for you.

Re: Shocks for lowerd trucks?

Ran a set of Belltech Street Performance on my old '93 S-10 with 5/6 drop. I liked them so much that I bought another set for the '97 Tahoe I acquired after selling the S-10. I still have my Tahoe & like how it rides being lowered. I had the Doetsch Tech on my old '93 C-1500 with 5/8 drop. The fronts rode nice, & the rear ones did too until bottoming out. I only had a regular frame notch though, so I don't really hold it against the shocks.

My Build threads:
1966 Chevy C-10 "Black Betty"
