99 s-10 lowered suspension question

I just purchased a 99 s-10 2 wheel drive, and I just realized it has been lowered. I would like to raise it back to the stock hightand stance. How can I determine if drop spindles and/or drop leaf springs were used,or just short springs and drop blocks. I'm hoping fixing it is just a matter of connecting the stock brackets on the rear end and replacing the short springs with stock ones in the front. Will I have t reset the wheel camber ? Thanks for any input.

1) Look at the rear end and see if blocks are in between the rear housing and the springs......

2) Most after market spindles do not LOOK like the GM stuff.....and the springs would be shorter.

Find a 99 S-10 like yours ..........to look at and make a good comparsion.....got to be lots of them on a car lot.....

you will definately have to have an alignment done after you raise the vehicle.
lowering spindles would have the rotor mounted up higher closer to the top
whereas stock ones mount the rotor closer to the middle
