    hey guys been wheeling for a while got a new truck 92 s-blazer 4.3l v6 loaded. wanting to do and SAS i was wondering if there was an axle out there that had the same ratio and width as the rear out of somthing else, so i wouldnt have to remove the rear axle and just focus on the front.


    thanks, Andy

    You can use a dana 30 out of a jeep xj. it is the same width and the drive shaft will bolt right in. also you can cut all the tabs for the springs and LCA's out of the xj and just weld them to your blazer frame.. they ae the same width, then you can use alot of the xj lift componets to lift your blazers front end. you can find out more at www.s10extremist.com this stuff is second nature for these guys.

    i know plenty of guys who have broken 7.5s with stock 4.3s, and stock size tires. if you think you're going to run 36s on one, i've got a bridge i'll sell ya.

    as for axles, swap the rear too. go for a Dana 44/9" combo out of an early Bronco.

    WAY beefier than the Dana 30/7.5 or Dana 30/35 combo that alot of SFA S10 guys are running

    obviously. :rolleyes:

    36s on a 7.5" 10 bolt arent gonna cut it, you're gonna have to change to something else.

    sombody's half tons that they're swapping out of their fullsize. you could probably make an 8.5" 10 bolt or a 12 bolt live under that thing for a LOOOOONG time.

    If you swap in a dana 30 you could run 31's pretty safely. I would check on the early bronco axels if you plan on going any bigger, or if you plan on riding them REAL hard. If you are wheeling a real tight budget then then I hope that you have the tools and ability to do you own work and fabing. That's what cost the most in the long run.

    also the 8.8 uses the same lug pattern, ive also got a 31 spline limited slip for one w/ double packed clutches (strong posi). they can hold up to 35s no problem at all. a D30 would last under 33s no problem but shafts would be a must to do35s and wheel it hard. lucky for u u gotta lot less weight then us full size guys.
