    Did they do totally different suspension on these or did they just lower the mounting brackets and use normal leafs and torsion bars?

    They had different leaf springs for sure, and for some reason I think they used different torsion bars as well, not not sure. There were a lot of various drivetrain parts that were different from the normal s-10 though.
