  1. ZQ8 Springs ?

    Steering & General Suspension
    You could be right but they look like aftermarket springs to me, I haven't seen the any stock GM leafs that build with same leaf shim or brackets. It had a Flaming River driveshaft and some new front end components.
  2. ZQ8 Springs ?

    These are the springs that are currently on my 98 Step-side, they appear to be after market springs.They have different pad and end bushings etc. than any of my stock springs and have three leafs total.
  3. Cam swap

    60v6 Forum (2.8/3.4)
    My usual advice to anyone trying to up grade a 2.8 is to find a 3.4 and rebuild it if necessary, no down time while using the 2.8. Up side is 3.4 tbi 160 hp and more with 4.3 tbi swap and free flow exhaust. Its basically a drop-in swap, noticeable increase in power. 9
  4. Oil 1/2 Quart Over

    262ci Forum (4.3)
    Just to update, brought the engine up to operating temperature at 50 mph and my gauge is reading 45 psi. It was 10-30 Mobil 1 but truck has 160 + thousand miles. I don't put 10,000 miles on this truck so ought to be good for the year.
  5. Oil 1/2 Quart Over

    262ci Forum (4.3)
    Changed the oil in my 2003 S10 crew cab today, with mobile one synthetic. The 4.3 oil cap. is 4.5 qts. and I was thinking the jug I had was 4 quarts, it was 5 qts putting it 1/2 qt over. Yes, every manual says don't over fill but I've read that on most engines you can go a quart over with no...

  7. 2.8 TBI with 4.3 throttle body

    60v6 Forum (2.8/3.4)
    I remember when Holley offered a bigger tbi (4.3) but don't know what the injector size was. You could try the 4.3 tbi; with the smaller 2.8 injectors and see if it ran better. Changing to the 4.3 tbi on a 2.8 is a waste in my opinion without a cam upgrade and improved exhaust. The factory 3.4...

  9. Cam swap

    60v6 Forum (2.8/3.4)
    Other than the stock 2.8 there's only 2 oem cams I know of, the one that cam in the 3.4 93-95 Camaro / Firebird or the one that came in the factory S10 3.4 / 2.8 swap engine. The cam that came in the 3.4 swap engine was designed for the S10 and better low end.than the camaro firebird cam. Doubt...

    So, with that code is it a pretty safe bet that its the abs module?
  11. ABS CODE

    Wheels, Tires & Brakes
    I heard a noise that sounded like the brake pad warning tab rubbing. I removed one front wheel and caliper and checked rotor an pads, they were fine. I had to press in the caliper pistons to make installation easier. Now it feels like I have air in the system though I never opened any brake...
  12. Transmission Swap

    Transmission & Rearend
    I have an 83 2.8 four speed that had a cable activated clutch fork, can this be adapted to a 91 2.8 that has the hydraulic activated fork?

    No, bought an LS6 intake with fuel rails and injectors, the three bolt TB is the same, the injectors are a step up.
  14. Switching Manifolds

    LSx Discussion
    After posting I realized what you've all said, a little embarrassing but I'll get over it. I haven't given my engine much attention since bringing it home and putting it in the garage. Thanks for your quick replies.
  15. Switching Manifolds

    LSx Discussion
    I'm switching from a 2005 L33 truck manifold to an LS6 intake manifold on my 2005 L33 5.3. Will I need LS6 spark plug wires because of the difference in height or routing of wires. I want to stick with AC Delco wires if possible.

  17. Front springs with Cast iron 6.0

    LSx Discussion
    I did a search trying to find the weight of various gm engines and I did find a few charts. The problem is different people weight engines in different states of dress, some stripped and some with accessories. If anyone makes a scale it would have to be fairly stout and probably prohibitively...
  18. Front springs with Cast iron 6.0

    LSx Discussion
    Don't know the weight difference between an all cast iron 4.3 and a 6.0 with alum. heads. but if it were me I'd try it with the stock springs and see how it sits and handles. There's seem's to be a lot of confusion when it comes to capacity and springs rates from what I've seen.

    LSx Discussion
    Located on passenger side rear of block is a pad with nine digits, the 2nd digit is the year, 8th digit should be P, these digits are etched in and are not the ones right above that are cast in.
