4wd

  1. S10 / Sonoma
    I've been looking around for wheel spacers but I keep seeing comments about them fitting the rear but not the front or visa-versa. I'm trying to get a set of 4 for both rear and front but I'm not sure what to look for. If anyone can give me the sizes for the rear and front then I could order...
  2. Transmission & Rearend
    Has anyone used the ARB RD148 air locker in their truck? This one shows for Colorado, H3 and others of newer vintage but a call to a diff shop says it fits the S10 just fine. I plan on keeping my 3.73s but I want locking control, and not the hit or miss the G80 is. So what is your take on...
  3. S10 / Sonoma
    I'm banging my head against the wall and hoping someone can help. I purchased a 96 4.3l 4wd pickup in decent condition, but the 4wd isn't working. I'll list the things I've tried as I've narrowed it down significantly. The transfer case shifts in and out fine. When engaged, the front drive...
  4. V8 Discussion
    I’ve got a 88 350 tucked into my 89 4wd s10. I ordered the swap headers from JTR conversions. Well. They don’t fit as described. Passenger side comes into contact with the shock tower. Driver side is obstructed by the steering shaft and fuel lines and frame. I’ve tried a couple sets of...

    Looking for advice on a course of action to take with respect to replacing and upgrading my Sonoma 4WD capability. Truck: 04 Sonoma 4.3L auto with 3-button 2WD/4WD selection with 60k miles, second owner. Problem: Mid-pandemic started hearing the squeal of a partially engaged transfer case...
  6. Wheels, Tires & Brakes
    Thanks in advance for any advice. Short version: When the engine heats up, both front brakes apply and continue to drag until the engine temperature comes down. NOTE: Updated 11/9/2020 - After some additional testing, this is not a 'heat' problem. The brakes apply intermittently but release...
  7. S10 / S15
    Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum and fairly new to owning an an S10. I recently bought my 91 s10 to be a farm truck but have been having a hard time getting the 4wd to work. Its a long story and I've tried a lot of different things so I'll try to keep it brief. I started by replacing the...
  8. S10 / S15
    How do I tell which gears I have in my rear end? And which gears will work best as a happy medium between acceleration and top end?

I would like swap a (3970010 stamp) 350 engine into it. My question is can I keep my transmission? I would like to...
  10. 4wd IFS
    I would like to avoid getting a kit for lifting my 95 4WD 4DR. I was thinking of getting 14 inch rims to make a set of 30s look bigger, friend of mine had custom tires made 10 inches wide to fit an 8 inch rim for extra protection and I really like the less square look. I am totally new to tires...
