    My buddy has a 97 sonoma..he has lowering springs for it that will lower it approximatly 3 inches, or so he says. I know nothing about trucks...is he going to need to replace the shocks or will the stock ones hold up? i know there hasta be somebody on here with knowledge of this...

    Meh, that's the cheap way of dropping a truck, he may as well cut the springs if he's going to do that.

    Idealy, he should buy a good kit that includes drop spindles, progressive coils, mono leafs & gas shocks.

    cheap way.. but 3 inches isn't much for an s10. you won't lose much ride quality.
