i really dont think so, i would think that the bars in an s10 would be smaller. also wouldnt the swaybar get in the way? if you really want to do it see if the dealer has a set of s10 keys in and compare them to 1500 keys rather than taking yours out for nothing if they dont work.

well when i did my ifs lift my friend got sum aftermarkey keys for his Z and i compared them length wise they were the same size

but thickness they were a lil bit larger

and i didnt know if ford keys were same size or bigger than chevy keys

i can probily find some after market tkeys for a s-10 model but was just curious bout ford keys

were they the same size where the bar goes into the key...if so then if they fit in the crossmember then i think they would work...id probably just get aftermarket keys though so you dont have to worry about it. generalspringkc.com

if u have no luck on keys, u can always add longer bolts, did this on my 03 z71 and only gave me a 1/2" more of lift but might add more on ur s10 and give u the amount u need.
