corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

so will a corvette irs (independant rear suspension). work under an s10? i know there would be bracket and bracing fab-work needed, and possibly more massaging to get it to fit and work properly. but... is it feasable, as far as the total width of the irs and whatnot?

i know i seen the guys on trucks ( spike tv) put a mustang irs under a ranger... which is what got me thinking about this? id love some good feedback, because im thinking about it for my s10 project. in theory, i believe it would give me the handling i am looking for. what do you all think?

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

Do a search on this. this has been asked thousands of times onhere. IMO its not worth it. 3-4 link would be better.

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

yeah, i thought that the irs would provide better cornering and handling then a 4 link but. ill definatly have to do alot more research.

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

yes it will. as far as what I've seen, you'll have to shorten the arms but it's doable and gets good handling.

at the point of doing it Id also run the rear mounted trans and torque tube from a C5... you will have to get new half shafts made and make new upper and lower control arms among other things.

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

I hate to be pessimistic, but unless you use the truck for racing or running really hard on the track it would be a waste of money and time compared to just linking the solid axle with coil overs.

But then again, it would be sooo awesome to do (after an LS swap of course).

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

This is basically what it would have to look like. This IRS is from a Pre-transaxle car.

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

S10 body wasn't built for handling. Not sure if it would even be a good idea.

Why are you wanting to do this? Autocross or something?

yes, everyone heard that from someone.....
that's why you got dimes standing on their rear bumpers at the strip still using leaf springs and other dimes out running sports cars in autocross and road racing still with leaf spring suspensions. just ask around, a lot of members here are doing it and they'll tell you, an s10 CAN handle.

I'm pretty sure it's harder to make an s10 lay frame or hop than handle properly fab-wise.

If you "Get r Done" you best post pic's!....I'd love to see a dime lay waist to a car in auto cross!....but I'd take a Astro front chassis, and use theawd setup on your dime. Why?! Awd is better than 2wd, when all your weights in front & power in rear. Not sure if anyone's attempted this, but I've contemplated it!

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

I've got a ZR2 rear sway bar and a Extreme rear sway bar sitting in the garage. The ZR2 one is incomplete, needs bushings, the other Extreme sway bar has ploy bushings, all stuff's there. If you'd like to go that route, hit me up, I'll sell's ya some parts! And I do believe you can still use Lakewood Slappers (funny name, but I like it, it fits the description and design!), Caltrac's, Assassins, Add a Link (not sure on this ones name, add a link, adjust a link, or sum'n like that). But either way, it'd give you a little bit of weight down low, help out with not only side to side roll, but when your get'n into the throttle, give you a stiffer suspension setup.

that might not be a bad idea. although the way most gys doing awd conversions go is pretty easy too, get a 4wd frame, an awd case and tubular control arms in front to mount coil overs beside the cv shafts.
but that's very far in the future for me, got a new house so can't spend too much on the truck.

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

The rear sway bar setup helps a ton! I did it to my s10 and its awesome. A lot less body roll and the truck feels more planted in corners. I'm no auto x racer but I'm sure some of them have rear sway bars as well if they are running leaf springs still.

I have two rear sway bar sets, one from 98 ZR2 and Xtreme. But the Caltracs (there's others like this, NOT LAKEWOOD, those IMO are junk to be honest, save your money, buy something worth while) and I don't have much rear end role in turns, and NO issue with wheel hop, or torsion in the rear axle! Depending on the setup, you can still (not sure why) use sway bar setup with Lief spring traction bar setup.

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

If I keep my ext cab ill be making my own cal tracs for it. Im on a taller size tire as of now. But have a set of vette wheels to go on when funds become available, so the bars will help keep the rear in check. Ok enough thread jacking this guys thread lol

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

I purchased a 1988 s10 with a cammed 355 and turbo 475 trans yes a 475 I know most of you would say they didn't make one but they did it had a longer tail shaft but anyways I got the truck home and I live about five miles out of town so one day I try to go to town on a quarter tank and it stranded me about half way so at this point I wanted to sell it but instead my dad says "we'll I have the 700r-4 out of that vette" and I'm like okay so I rebuild it and when I put it in there we both realized there was no mounting studs for the tranny then we decided to take it one step further and put the rear end into rather than pull the fresh trans apart and find a new shell so we lengthened the torque arm by about two and a half feet and everything from there was cake no modifications required to the rear axle so I thought hey if this made it handle that good why not do the front so that's what I'm doing to it now is stretching it four inches widening it four inches on both sides and a fresh 427 sbc with pro ram 2 and two 4150 650s on top

4 link or truck arms with a watts link would be a good combo and waaaaaay cheaper and easier than a IRS... but i have always thought it would be cool

Re: corvette irs suspension; s10 conversion

I am debating getting some kind of IRS, might pick up an 8.8 tomorrow and go coilover 4-link, its always up in the air. I would attempt it if I can see some conversions with lots of pics.

Do you think you could put up all the IRS pics you have in this thread. Any other info to help other members pull this off would be awsome. I'm currently looking at a 8.8 4-link with coilovers, but this would be a functioning conversation piece. I can post the pics in photobucket so there bigger if you want.

I haven't had any issue with wheel hop but because its a Dana 36 it's a 2.59:1 ring gear. I ran nitto nt555rs on the back but it doesn't hop like my 91 vette
