Re: spindle interchangeability ?

Yes, IIRC all 2wd s10/sonomas share the same spindle

Re: spindle interchangeability ?

lol, ok, cool. thanx guys. that will save me over $150, though a bit more work.

would you guys happen to know a good place to get a 1" block kit ? at a fair price.
i would use the set on the 95, but i highly doubt i could get them off without mess'n up the u-bolts.

All day. Solid blocks. Add setback plates for more goodness. They're U-bolts are excellent too.

Re: spindle interchangeability ?

I used them to center my rear in the wheel wells. But they are also used for:

From their website:

For those who have a fear of driveshaft modification when installing the V-8 into the S-10 truck, the rear axle can be relocated rearward 1/2" by installing axle set-back plates (Stealth Conversions Part #S10-301).

As crude as this may sound, the stock location of the rear axle normally places the rear wheels about 3/8" forward of the center of the wheel well. Measure your own truck. If you move the rear axle rearward 1/2", it will be almost perfectly centered in the wheel well, and you will save about $60 and a trip or two to the driveshaft shop.

Basically, the axle set-back plates are like lowering blocks, except the locating pin on top is offset 1/2" from the locating hole on the bottom. The axle set-back plate is made from 3/8" thick steel and the 9/16" diameter steel pin is welded in place.

The axle set-back plate lowers the rear of the truck 3/8" and can be used with the stock U-bolts.

Re: spindle interchangeability ?

i looked at all 3 yesterday. the 01 and 95 are basicly even. the 97 is offset somewhat. i'm not worried about it.

Re: spindle interchangeability ?

offset in what way? The spindle shaft is different? Pics for reference?

Re: spindle interchangeability ?

I think he's talking about the rear wheels and use of the set back plate
