Are you looking for the whole front end kit or just a center link and tierods?
When there's a break in the weather and I get my ass to the junkyard finally I'll try to grab one.

They do on the early round column trucks, as for the square columns I'm not sure. I'd need to see how the steering shaft attaches to the column at the firewall.

Re: Project SINOMA

Next time you're under the hood dicking around take a pic of where the shaft meets the column. I'm curious about what it looks like.

Re: Project SINOMA

So i still need to replace my fuel lines. im blowing a bunch of money this week on truck and motorcycle parts since its finally getting nice out. is there a difference between reg cab and x cab fuel lines under the bed? they should be the same right? errno? i cant find them for a reg cab, only x, and i would prefer to put prebent lines in. if the xcab ones arent the same ill make my own. thoughts?

Re: Project SINOMA

i gotta say i got lucky when that happened. if it was while i was on the road i would have been ****ed. i got to work in the morning and turned to the left in our parking lot so i could back up into my spot. because all the cool kids back in, right? anyways, i started backing up and felt kind of a clunk... and voila. i only paid $25 a piece for the arms, we have a guy at a particular scrap yard that hooks us up with good prices on stuff..

huge pain in the ass to align it with those stock arms on again tho...

Re: Project SINOMA

i need your help with a wheel question guys, i did some searching but wanted to ask anyway.... its my thread right? i got some wheels for the ol' girl from a friend, but it looks like i need spacers in order to run them.

(going to sandblast and paint them)



the stock steelies have 3 and 3/4 inch back spacing



these have 4 and 1/4 inch back spacing.


Obviously i need spacers if im going to use them. i daily this thing and i want it to be safe. i need a minimum of a half inch spacer, if i run a 1 inch spacer on all four wheels am i going to have front end problems? i dont want to put a lot of extra stress on my ball joints. thoughts?

Re: Project SINOMA

People have been running far more than a 1" spacer for years and have had no problems.

The only thing you need to look out for is your studs. I forget where the cutoff is that spacer manufacturers start putting in their own studs, but if yours don't come with some, you'll need to get longer ARP studs.

Re: Project SINOMA

Hey! I figured you sold this...

I've got a 1 1/2" spacer on my rear end and its been fine for the past year. It even survived getting banged up to a wall at 40 and thus totalling my old Blazer.

I've get one with studs built in thats solid aluminum though. They're kinda expensive however.

Re: Project SINOMA

I was running a 2" spacer on my 338's for a while with no problems. They are solid aluminum with lugs built into them. They were around $50-60 for a pair on eBay.

Re: Project SINOMA

i think they're gonna look pretty sick too stew lol.

i'd never sell this thing haha.

im not worried about rear spacers at all, i just dont want my handling to be messed up buy the front ones, or put too much stress on the ball joints. im hoping to find some 1 inchers that have their own studs in them.

edit: if you guys say they will be ok, im thinking 1.5 inch spacers... which will ultimately stick the wheels out 3/4 of an inch from stock...

Re: Project SINOMA

I'm confused as to why you would need spacers at all unless you want to push the wheels out for looks? The snowflakes should bolt right on.

Re: Project SINOMA

Correct me if I'm wrong, but being that the snowflakes have a half inch more backspacing than stock rims, he wants a spacer so that the wheels don't see even farther in and to potentially get them to sit flush.

Re: Project SINOMA

I can't see what's going on in the rest of that picture but the BS of stock wheels should be 4". 2wd S10's require zero offset wheels, 2nd gen F body wheels require the same. Baskspacing will be dependent on width.

Ryan, quit dicking around and try one on.

If the wheels are 7" wide and have 0mm offset, wouldn't that mean they have 3.5" of BS?

Re: Project SINOMA

I've been trying to figure out why that is and just realized it's because wheel width isn't measured from the lips where people would traditionally measure backspacing from, but rather from inside the lip, which accounts for the ~1/2" difference. You're correct. Thanks for the information.

Derp. As someone who ran 3rd gen F-body wheels on a 2wd I should have realized what I was saying.

Re: Project SINOMA

lol, i would but time is not something i have this week.

it just occurred to me that the wheels may be different front to back?

if i set these two wheels pictured side by side, everything is identical except for the measurement shown. i know for a fact if the backspacing is this deep i will rub on the control arm, also i need lug centric nuts for these things...

oh, and i do want a bit wider stance... but that is secondary to fitting these wheels.

Re: Project SINOMA

All 2nd gen F body wheels should have the same BS front and back. There's 7" and 8" wide versions of those snowflakes.

Re: Project SINOMA

idk what to tell you, they are all 7" wide and there is a half inch difference from my stock wheels... that is going to prevent them from fitting...
