im still wondering about these two things, and thanks for the links phil, and yes about the speaker, im so relieved lol

Re: Project SINOMA

i was also wondering if i could use the heater controls from a 98+ instead of my original ones? i dont see why i couldnt unless the fan speed control was mechanical or electronic instead of vacuum controlled... the 98+ is all vacuum right?

Re: Project SINOMA

The lock rods are the same, so no need to change them out. And yes, check the threads I linked, they answer how to wire up the modules.

Re: Project SINOMA

working on the power windows and locks, as well as the new dash today, im still not 100% on these EZ up things... it looks like wire A is just for power, b goes to up or down (which ever i want to do automaticly), C is for up or down (the other one, obviously) and D goes to the motor, and the motor goes back to the swith for whatever C is connected to? this is what i am going with unless i hear from someone that this is a bad idea.

i also had a question about powering everything, the harness can just be pluged in like i was originaly hoping. i should just be able to run a power wire to the windows and power to the locks and then grounds... right?

Re: Project SINOMA

No man, you only wire one wire up to the switch. So cut the line going to up or down and splice the now "two" wires to the module and then the module needs a ground a power wire. I forget off hand which wire goes where. Did you read the thread about it?


Look at this stock diagram of the module, and read my post below it.
http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f62/in...2/#post6587454


Apparently one of the links I gave you was bad....but I forget where I was trying to link. It's probably something out of the electrical sticky.

Re: Project SINOMA

You have B and C going to the switch, only one wire from the switch goes to the module. The other wire goes to the motor as normal withough changing anything. The switches are setup to be a ground always when the switch isn't pressed. I'll see what I can do later, I'm still not awake right now.

Re: Project SINOMA

windows are great, havnt put the ez downs/ups in yet, also havnt done the locks... not sure where to get/send power for them... and i gotta get behind my dash again.. sounds like i shorted/pinched a speaker wire, also my dash speakers are backwards... so thats a thing... oh, and my phone mount i really like, but i have an issue with the aux out, it doesn't always work and when it does i cant use the 5.1 surround sound boost feature or whatever my phone has

edit: one other thing im kinda iffy on is the drivers door lock... it seems kinda sloppy, can i put my stock lock unit on the power module?

Re: Project SINOMA

I don't believe you can. What do you mean sloppy? It's been awhile since I've used them, but they used to work fine when I pulled them. For power for the locks, use the fuse block stock position.

Re: Project SINOMA

idk, seems like it doesnt latch as securely as my old ones, i might just be crazy though... the lock is harder to move though, that is kinda annoying.
i do know where to get power from, i just need to figure out where to send the power... like which wire on the blazer door harness to connect power to, and which is ground

Re: Project SINOMA

thanks man!
i went with aim spindles, they were more my budget, but i wish i had spent the money on fabtechs right away...
and yeah the drive shaft needed to be longer because of the soa, if i had moved the axle forward a bit, and then shimmed it so the pinion was up more and the trans was pointing down more in back i could have used the stock one... but i didnt

And what size tire are you running? I like the height you are sitting at. I want to run 31's but I was just going to go with shackles and AAL, mostly because I do haul everyday in my truck.

What makes you want the fabtechs over the AIMs? I've been trying to decide on it, and right now I have no budget, so i can wait for awhile lol

From what I am hearing, everyone experiences that, no matter the spindle.

Re: Project SINOMA

i was wrong, lowest pressure is 25psi
they ride a little rough, but i knew that was going to happen, i guess im a little surprised how much of a difference it made, im thinking it will get better after i break them in.. at least i hope haha.

i have been meaning to make shock mounts that come off the axle tube for a while now, i had been using the stock mounting location after flipping the mounts over when i did the soa, so basically the shocks weren't doing anything

my dad has access to a machine shop at work, so we went there to make a set


and here they are cut out


and all done, i can get more pics if anyone wants, i sprayed some rubberized undercoat on them to hopefully prevent rust

Re: Project SINOMA

Ryan, are you still having the problem with the trans falling out of 5th? Mine did it from time to time too but when I took the super boot off it stopped doing it. I just switched to a soft boot and so far so good. I think maybe because of the way the super boot had to be situated to cover the hole in the floor the resistance pulled the trans out of gear sometimes.

Re: Project SINOMA

hasnt happend since it started getting warmer out, it would always do it in the morning when the boot was very stiff and cold so its probable that that is my issue, i want to get a boot like yours, would be cool if i could find one thats green tho

Re: Project SINOMA

Buy a bullshit cheapo soft boot, mock it up and make sure it works the way you want it to, remove all the stitches from the boot so whomever is wielding the sewing machine has a pattern, buy some fabric that you find to be of the groovy variety, make das boot, profit.

x2. I am handy with a sewing machine, but I don't own one. (thanks to a mother that was a home economics teacher) They aren't to bad to make though. Hell you could probably hand stich it, or take it to a local upholstery shop to have it done with the same idea.

Re: Project SINOMA

I'm just the opposite. I can hand sew shit but I have no idea how a sewing machine works. lol But yeah, technically all the stitching could be down on the inside so you could do a pretty janky ass job sewing it and still have it come out decent looking.
