Hard ride I recently purchased a 2000 Chevy S-10 Extended cab, 6cyl, which has an extremely rigid ride.I have put new shocks on the font. The rear shocks test OK. Do all 2000 S-10's ride like a rock?

    Thanks for the comments, but I have owned trucks before. 
    I do not expect a "luxury car" ride.
    My 2 Chevy 1500s never rode this hard. My Ford 150 never rode this hard. My old S-10 never rode this hard.
    And, I have been a passenger in countless pickups both large and small. NOTHING as ever ridden this hard. 
    A Peterbuilt is a luxury car by comparison.
    Thanks, anyway!

It Might seem rough but compared to my F-250, my back likes my 2000 S10 alot more at the end of the day. I drive between 700 and 1000 miles a week. And remember this is not a luxury car. It is a Pick-up truck. Thanks

Why can't I open rear door?


Sounds like the rod fell off inside. Their not held on by much, - a little clip deal is all. Your probably going to have to pull the panel to fix. Maybe the rear seat as well, - if there isn't another access point somewhere.

To get it open:
-remove the door panel,
-remove the speaker,
-reach in a pull the top cable by hand.

There are a few ways to fix it, the easiest of which is to purchase a replacement latch assembly from the dealership.
If you don't want to spend the money, you can fix it with zip ties and flexible/semi-rigid plumbing parts from a hardware store.

Need New Shocks


I would suggest that you put Monroe sense a track shocks on this truck. There is also an option for a spring assist load leveler shock for the rear that would give you a little firmer ride and help a lot when towing or loads. hope this helps...Chris

Rough ride in my 2000 chevy silverado


Maybe the shocks are worn out. You can do the jounce test, give a good push down on either bumper, vehicle should move down, back up past rest, and then settle at rest. Any more and it is worn out. Also check for leaking shocks, and broken springs while your at it. Judging on the year of the vehicle I wouldn't doubt the shocks are bad, if they haven't been replaced within the last 50K miles or so. They are easy to replace, and properly working shocks greatly increase the safety and drive-ability of the vehicle.

Rear air shocks fully extended, car rides extremely high, why?


Noooo Nooo Noooo!!!! I FIXED MINE WITHOUT ANY OF THESE SUGGESTIONS!! STRAIGHT FROM THE DEALER. YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT THE WIRE THAT'S ATTACHED TO THE AIR SHOCK. IT'S CLAMPED ON, YOU JUST PULL IT OFF AND ALL THE AIR WILL COME OUT. THEN PUT IT BACK ON AND SHOULD BE FINE!!

Where do I put the supports when working underneath 2006 Chevy Malibu? I need to change my rear shocks


Look under the car - you'll see 2 long metal rails ( the frame rails) . Support each side with a 2 ton minimum jack stand fully extended approximately one foot ( 12" ) in front of the rear wheels. Now use your jack ( preferably floor style ) to lift one of the rear wheels to relieve the pressure on the shock. Remove fasteners securing the shock, then remove and replace the shock. If the new shock has a plastic strap attached, do not cut this strap until you have mounted the shock on the vehicle. If you do not have an exposed frame rail, you'll see a "pad" in front of the rear wheel close to the outside of the car - it should be about 10 inches in from the pinch weld and about 12 inches in front of the wheel. Use this pad for the stand and lift the vehicle by the c shaped bar that goes from 1 rear wheel to the other. Do not support the car with just the jack -it could let loose and drop the car on you.
Hope this helps!

I need a new battery for a 1998 Chevy S-10 extended cab. Where can I get a new one with the best price for the battery.


Best prices are Walmart and then Autozone. Keep in mind however that you truly do get what you pay for. Walmart batteries have an extremely high failure rate.

Check the level switch at the back of the car - this turns the compressor on and off as the ride height changes. It may have come loose, is stuck or faulty.

More than likely the heater valve is stuck open. You can usually purchase them from the local parts house. As far as the ride most of these cars ride this way. You can update the suspension with newer designs and shocks to allow a softer ride and can even get suspension that is adjustable allowing you to set the ride and performance yourself to your liking. Air suspension is probably also available to allow maximum soft ride.
