    How to install front shocks


    Are they coil overs?

    If so- you remove them & have a shop put them
    into a spring compressor & swap out the shocks
    or rent a small spring compressor

    Will shocks for 1985 s10 fit a 2002 s-10


    Yes, as long as the 85 S10 and 2002 S10 are both the same as in  2WD or 4WD.
    I believe the rear shocks are the same but the front shocks are different between the 2WD and 4WD.
    Good luck and hope this helps.

    How to take off and install front shocks in 2002 chevy s10


    The 4X4 are easier then the 2WD. 
    The 4wd has a bolt and nut at the top and bottom of the shock's. The bottom ane top bolts can be removed with out lifting the S10.
    The 2WD you need to rase it and remove two nut's at the bottom of the A-arm and the top has one nut to the frame though the top A-arms. 
    Good luck
