How do you assemble a hockey puck truck lift on a s10?

first you need to find all the bolts that hold the body to thechassis. measure how big the bolts are and go out and buy hockey pucks. the # of hockey pucks you buy will depend on how much you want to lift the truck (about one hockey puck per inch lifted) lets say you have 12 bolts... you will then have to buy 12 hockey pucks for every inch you want to lift the truck. i would suggest you don't lift it any more than 2-3 inches. if you go any higher you will have to extend all the electrical wires and shocks and that ruins the point in a cheap lift. drill a hole in the hockey puck the size of the bolt and put the bolt through it and put it back on the truck just like it was but now it is spaced out by the hockey pucks. you now have a good lift. good luck and be safe man.
