Re: Thumbs up / Thumbs down
I agree, not much wrong with '87 except the front hubs.
And my opinion has always been that '90 is the best year to build. I was lucky, my '90 came with a manual t-case already. I had to swap the auto hubs to manuals. '90 was the first year of the E4OD, which I still like for highway purposes (but I admit even I am planning a C6 swap, but only in tandem with a big-block). '90 received the sliding front bucket seats (handy) and an improved spare tire carrier design. '90 did NOT receive 4WABS (thank god) and the VSS is still in the t-case, making potential rear axle swaps easier.
And yeah, '91 would be just as good but I've heard of several '91's not producing codes when they should.
