I put these es3000 on my 2001 2.2l S10. Previously had es9000 witch lasted about 10 years. I don't do much off roading. The 9000 were way to stiff for a small truck. I am very happy with the 3000. They ride nice and based on my last pro comp experience I expect these to last quite a while.
I had to use about 5/8 inch of washers ( big nut actually) to make the U-bolts work. The threads were not deep enough. When I bought them they asked about a 2" lift, I thought they meant the 2" factory lift. If so they screwed up if not I screwed up. But they are good U- bolts and the job is done.
