S-10 Rear
 
Help! These are what I call bumblebee questions, meaning they're pretty basic and I should be embarassed to ask, but here goes. I want to install posi in our most recent addition to the fleet, a 93 S-10 Blazer. What will interchange? My local yard has an 85 s-10 3.73 posi (and housing). He wanted to know if my ring was a 7 1/2 or 7 5/8. I don't know without pulling off the plate. The rear is a 3.42 according to the codes.
Also, if I install the 3.73, does it mess up the front end when I'm driving in 4 WD on the highway in snow? Is it better to buy the parts and install them in the original rear? This blazer will not see much intentional off-road use.

Thanks!

You don't want to do that for two reasons. The biggest being you will fry your transfer case real quick running mismatched gears. The second is you have a 7 5/8, which is stronger than the 7 1/2. I believe '88 with the 4.3 liter was the change over year from the 7 1/2 to the 7 5/8's.


Global Warming? F*&% the grandchildren, I'm cold now!!
