Re: S-10 Ideler arm

What rims do you have? Do they have more backspacing than stock? This will add more stress to the steering components on top of the 3/4" lift. I had my 96 k1500 cranked 1" adn went through a couple of half shafts. I droped it down to 3/4" only 3-4 months ago to alleviate the angles. About the idler arm, I couldn't tell you exactly what may be wrong. What makes you think it's the idler arm? Could it be other components of the steering as well making you believe it's the idler arm?

Hopefully someone else can shed more light on your specific problem.

Re: S-10 Ideler arm

What brand of idler arm are you using? If it is a cheape type get rid of it and replace it with a moog type arm they are about the strongest one made. I would also reccomend checking your pitman arm. If there is any side to side movement replace it. If this arm is bad it will take out the idler arm. Having idler arms loose on a GM IFS is very common. This is true on the s-10s and the full sizes. They normally last only about 20,000 mi max on a stock vehicle. If you add in a lift and bigger tires it dramatically reduces it life expectancy, espicially on the s-10's.
Good luck

I found out that pitman and idler arm from a '92 2500 4x4 is a direct bolt on to a S-10 the part # for Full circle Auto Zone are pitmanarm FA1555 its around $20. Ideler arm FA1680 around $40. I been told they are a must up grade if you have big tires + rims

Re: S-10 Ideler arm

That's good information. Is it really an uprade? Have you had the chance to compare the regular S10 arms to the 2500?
