S10 springs installed
This looks stupid AF.

Kind of pissed at the hive mind, not going to lie. I was told S10 springs + stock shackles would be a MILD lift from stock.

This is a Journey's 2" puck in front with cranked torsion bars (2+1, 3" higher than stock), and new S10 springs with STOCK shackles; the journeys extended shackles were even more nuts.

I know it will settle a tiny bit but what else can I do, this looks awful.

Also, would S10 springs mess up your alignment? I pull really hard to the right under braking now, and did not before. I don't understand how replacing both leaf springs would change this....
Where are you at? I'll be happy to buy those S-10 springs from you.

I'm still driving on them, hoping they settle. So far in 10k miles it hasn't really settled at all.

You now have 1970 HOT WHEEL classic model van.
Just missing red lines on the tires and some flame paint on the wheel fender openings.
Might need to get a larger diameter rim and tire for the back.:cool:
