Also many second generation 4x4 blazers had disk brakes. Changing gears in an S-10 is easy. My 89 did, and I just pulled a set out of another 89 at the junkyard yesterday. We have an excellent selection of S10 custom parts, like body kits, carbon hoods, custom seats, and rims, to name a few. For 2nd generation S10 owners the best setup to swap into your truck is to get a 231 transfer case and center console out of 2nd gen that had the manual transfer case.
So please take a look at our S10 parts selection. I just want the limited slip in about a 3:73 or so. The only reason I want to lift mine is for crawling over rocks at the mall. The energy suspension kit comes with presleeved lower control arm bushing but not upper bushings. You do need a special oil pan, other than that its no different than a S10 swap.
It was a sweet ride in its time. One of these might work for your lt1, I don't know. The downside to this is that you cannot run a front swaybar as the tierods make contact with the swaybar link. This kit can be described as an expensive torsion bar crank with rear lift shackles. Or you can run poly bushings.
Special Thank You to: -Leon for going to pick up the truck with me and working on it on multiple occasions, including removing the V6! All you can do is search for a junk yard. Glass fenders and bedsides are also another option along with Diversified Creations extended fender flares. Any of the holes that need to be drilled are all indented in the sheet metal from the factory. We currently have them installed and were able to net about 1. Or s10's, for that matter.
A differential drop bracket is used to lower the differential but requires the housing to be cut. This is sort of a side-project, maybe made more for my own entertainment than anyone else. Might be worth looking to. These are good quality pans for the price. I like the 97 idea because by then it should be gauranteed to be a 4.
The pricing was also affordable and it made customers take a second look at the S10 Blazer model. Quickly approaching the one-year anniversary of buying this truck, I really hope to be driving it around by then! Hundreds of hours of work, and several times the buying price in parts to fix up this junker. There are also several options for these. . The stock stamped control arms are weak in design and are subject to deformation where the bushing is pressed through the two vertical pieces of the pivot on the arm.
Then rebuild the transfer case with the 6 planetary gears and the wide chain and gears. I had to remove the black plastic flares and grind down half a head of a bolt on each side, then they didn't rub. My mom has a '97, and has thought about getting rid of it. But if you don't want to try it finding a full axle shouldn't be too hard. For full lockers there are several options including a selectable locker a full time locker or spool. One with disc brakes may be another story, though, but a Camaro disc brake swap isn't that hard either. The upper control arm there two choices: 1 Stock style balljoints such as Proforged 2 Fullsize balljoints in the instance that you have Rough Country control arms installed.
Sean was out of the country for three weeks and then both of us were sick for a few more. Also we have removed the front swaybar without issue and have had a much more comfortable ride and it handles much better offroad. Originally posted by sdime2372 i'm not too worried about disc brakes in the back, if i don't have drums i can't powerbrake, lol. The kit also included extended rear shackles, new torsion bar keys and upgraded shocks. Consider supporting us via Patreon as well! Special Thank You to Leon, Sean, and Rob for all of the help with this truck through thick and thin. I bought it that way from a friend of mine, and had a great time with it.
But the g80 is just a limited slip, its not a posi. This kit is new on the market and features tubular upper control arms that utilize fullsize silverado balljoints. Front Axle: All 2nd generation 4x4 5 speed S10's came with a cast iron front differential housing instead of the weak aluminum housing found in automatics. A pair of D44s out of a waggy would make a great little rig. I've heard you can swap a s10 blazer 4x4 rear end drum to drum and all to get the posi on an s10.
