    if your talking about the rods that bolt to the side of the engine and run down to the tranny my 95 2wd has them but it's a 5 speed. maybe the auto's didn't have them.

    i dont see the point of them and hoe they can help very much with anything especially with just one bolt at each end them them,


    my brothers 92 2wd s-10 pickup has these and its got 4.3L and 700r4 with aluminum K case style inspection cover

    if an engine and tranny flex apart form each otehr that much then something else is wrong that two little rods cant fix, IMHO

    good luck
