    I second that. Straight axles are the way to go.
    If you want to stick with the independent suspension, then BDS makes about a 5" lift and Superlift has a 6". Even if this is just a mall crawler and will never see a dirt trail, you will still have issues with it. They are just weak. There is a lot of information on 4x4 S-10s at http://www.s10extremist.org/forums/.
