I have a line on a rear end from a 1991 S10 Blazer - 4.3 V6, 4WD, 3:42 posi,
brakes. Will it swap into my 1995 S10 Blazer - 4.3 V6, 4WD, auto, 3:42 open,
I've looked at both and it looks like they are the same. I don't plan on
springs, shocks, or anything but the rear ends - I'll even detach the brake
and let them hang from wires while I slide the rear end in. Will it work? I need
this truck on the road soon.
Well, I just finished the swap. I swapped a 91 rear end into the 95 and the 1995
into the 1991 (don't ask why) .
The 91's & 95's rear end assemblies are not exactly alike. The backing plates
differently, forcing me to use the same backing plates as the vehicle the rear
from. The shock mounting plates are slightly different, but I kept the plates
respective vehciles and everything bolted up fine. The threads on the brake
lines are the
same, so all I had to do was disconnect the lines from the backing plates, then
up to the new ones, bleed them and go. The brake parts are the same (except for
cylinders), so I picked and chose the best from all available and mixed and
Thanks for all the input.
