Re: Why S10 not commonly lifted??

If you have to change clutches that often you might want to consider a racing clutch or something...

A body lift does help clear the v8, if you try to do that swap.

Re: Why S10 not commonly lifted??

I wanted to do a 2" body lift, however I found a 3" body lift someone had bought and never installed. He only wanted $50 for it. I don't regreat the body lift at all. It was extremely helpful when I dropped my tranny last time. I had tons of room to get at those top two tranny bolts, not too mention the tranny cooler lines. Without hte body lift those tranny cooler lines are a royal pain in the azz.

Sorry about that teaser pic not working. Check the first link and look for a red '92 S10 Blazer posing on top of some flatted cars, page 6. He is running 52" Michelin tires.
Your going to be hard pressed to fit 52" tires under a Wrangler without it becoming real unstable. A Wranger just doesn't have the wheelbase to handle that much tire. Common upgrade is to stretch the wheelbase to 100"-104". Stock 2dr S10-Blazer is 100.5", while a stock 4dr S10-Blazer is 107". In both cases anything over 33" tires and you should push the front axle forward at least 2" to gain better firewall clearance.

Re: Why S10 not commonly lifted??

Sorry I haven't been around lately, but I don't change clutches too often, hell only one so far and I have 20k on this one, so I shouldn't have to change it for a while... It is just a major inconvenience when the time does come [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

One day my truck will have a SFA... after that, lord knows what [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Build your own Mark Hall S-10 !
I have a Dana 44 rebuilt with 4.56's and disc and a 9" with spool and 4.56's and NEW WILD Horses springs and a bunch of other stuff as a package for $1500. Can deliver in the KY, TN, AL, IN, IL area. It was all for a S-10 swap I quit on. I have the Scout II steering box and ALL! Never used or had grease in it since gone through either! Tom 270-556-5340 24/7

Actually, they are not so hard to lift, very inexpensive, and I prefer a IFS truck over straight axle. Love my Blazer!
