Default 92 S-10 Blazer SAS

Here is a few pics of what I've been building over the last month or so. Only have a few pics downloaded so far. Let me know what you think!!!:chiefwoohaw::chiefwoohaw: or It has a D30 and a D35 for now with either a 327 or 350 and T-350 with S-10 transfer case with Advanced Adapters kit. 33x12.50 TSL radials on 15x10 Eagle 589 wheels. 4 inch CJ front spring pack with spring over conversion. Rear is stock S-leaves with spring over and full size Chevy 2 inch add-a-leaf and 4 in block( need custom leaf pack, block has to go, just there for mock up.) As it sits I either need bigger tires or drop it a few inches. But it does look good standing next to it.

There is no body lift. 4 inch Jeep leaf springs and spring over with 33's. I think I may need bigger tires. It also has the Jeep axles for now.

Last month or so? I know the truth.

That would be true if it were just labor, but you also have months of research in this also.

Months?? You mean years of wanting to do it, then months of getting things ready for it. Now I finally did something about it.

Looks good. Thats what I want to do to my blazer when I can afford it.

Are you working on it at the shop next to where jbsjunk work? If so I am the one that bought the red blazer that jeff had and saw this and yes its been more than a month since you started.

Looks good!!! I have a set of dana 44 axles with 4.56 gears that would look good under that blazer and they should be the same bolt pattern that your wheels are.

Only problem with axles is I need drivers side drop on the front axle. Being that you have D44's its probably pass drop. If its a drivers drop let me know.

I'll put a list of parts together. I may end up having these axles and wheels available.

if it's a passenger drop you could use a full size transfer case behind the turbo 350 and go that way, or is there some other reason your stuck on the driver's drop?

I just all ready have a trans and transfer case pretty much ready to go for the drivers drop. Not that its a major issue to get another one though.

just a thought, that if you can get a deal on the 44's finding a passenger drop t-case would be easy to do.

how did you go about doing the front axle conversion. did you make your own crossmembers/brackets or did you buy them already made and if so where did you get them. very interested to know cuz i plan on a sas on my 95 S-10 one day. very nice build so far

Im in the process of doing this to an 85. What did you do with your steering after the SOA. Did you buy a kit or Modify yourself. If you could post some pics. Looks good!!

IMHO, its way to tall. CG is way up there. Keep it low with some good flex and a solid belly pan

Finally got back to it. I changed both axles and upgraded to a Dana 44 and 9 in with a spool and 4:10 gears on both ends. I got it rolling for now and had to quick put the front end on it to see what it would look like. It ended up being about 2 inches lower than it was with the other axle with all the changes. Also I have the steering done now.
