Re: 86' s15 ext cab v8 corner carver, 56k beware

just a small update/heads up. i spoke to soon about the tie rods. i thought i had the pass wheel locked in place when i was reassembling it, but it moved (toed out) while i was putting the drivers side back together. to get to the point, they still toe out just a tad, so a little more needs to come off one of the tie rods. with the steering wheel centered one wheel toes in and one out, so one tie rod will end up being a little shorter than the other, which is how mosy s10s end up after and alignment anyway.

Autodidacticism. i taught myself everything i know outside of the public school system.

im an incredibly curious individual, and when i get interested in something, i usually become obsessed. curiosiy is the driving force behind most of what i do. i read a lot of books and info online, study theory etc


on a side note, i got an xj intermediate shaft for $18 at the picknpull! which for those that dont know- the xj shaft is a direct swap on the first gens(confirmed by me), and the wj shaft is supposed to be a direst swap for the 2nd gens. so i dont have to fuk with the WJ shaft like i was going to with that stupid key i made. and as a bonus, it might fit my 94, which is pretty sloppy right now. i know the 94s, being that "in between" year, could have either style steering column.

also, as i recall, i tossed the front brake line brackets years ago when i had it lifted because the tire would rub, or maybe i just lost them, dont remember. so i get a pair from picknpull and the pass side is to long, so the line doesnt quite reach. im confused, as all the 2wd first and 2nd gen trucks and blazers have the same brackets except the shape of the hole where the hose runs through and is fastened. the are the same length and mounting locations as far as i could tell are the same.

ill get some pics up

Re: 86' s15 ext cab v8 corner carver, 56k beware

Excellent thread jam packed with info that's great.just read it from start to finish.

I'm very interested in how your brake setup functions? And I know its not ready yet but I'm holding you to a first report after your second drive lol just enjoy the first one.
And what size brake line did you run for the front? And what size lines are on your master and prop valve.

Personally I'm planning on a hydroboost set up, but I would really interested to see how you fair.

Keep at her bud, your truck is looking great, just about gave up when you said green.

Re: 86' s15 ext cab v8 corner carver, 56k beware

Never seen a 94 with a square column. 95 was the split year for that as far as I know. I got a shaft from an early ZJ. I haven't installed it yet but looking at it side by side with the extra crap S10 shaft I have the fitment should be the same.

I don't know the year split on the zjs but yes the latter ones use a smaller double d shaft that I think you are referring to as square. The early ones use a much larger d or double d, can't remember.

93-98 were the ZJ's (the square body Grands)
99 started the WJ's I believe (The rounder Grands)


I think my Jeep shaft came from a Cherokee, not a Grand Cherokee
