Im looking into getting a 97 S-10, with the 4.3, ZQ8 suspension, auto, stepside.

My main qustion is what are the differences betwen a normal 4.3, and the SS 4.3? Should I hold out and look for a SS?

After looking at the SS's the look like they have normal suspension. Is it the regular suspension?

How does the 4.3 respond to mods? Which ones should I do first? I have an Explorer with the 4.0, and it didnt seem to respond to anything I gave it. When I get an S-10 my Explorer will become my beater :D

Im selling my turbo Rx7 for this, so im sure you can see how much I like this truck.

I look forward to hanging out on the forum.

Yeah, A bunch of Rx7 people I know gather at that Hooters. Unfortunately the ZQ8 I was looking at was too old. It was a 1997, black with silver racing stripes, and 57,xxx miles. I got tired of hearing people tell me it has too many miles. I thought it was perfect, because I like that style nose thats on it. It was only $9K. Well, Ive got 3 more to go check out. There is a red xcab stepside Xtreme by my house, but I dont think I trust the little dealer. Its been there forever.
