Re: RWD to AWD Q's

The G80s are difficult to find. There are a few options for similar items, but you gain a lot more from the ability to turn on the locker as opposed to spinning the wheels to force it to lock.

Swapping the rear axel is what I was thinking about. How hard would that be?

Re: RWD to AWD Q's

How difficult would adding a selectable(mechanical or electric) locker to a RWD van be? I dont think the AWD is going to happen and the RWD I have runs pretty well.

Re: RWD to AWD Q's

2 WD and AWD have similar, but different transmissions. Buy the AWD sell the 2 WD you can get a used tranny or opt for a rebuild. The two doors that swing out side to side are often referred to as Barn doors. Does $900 sound legit for a rebuilt transmission? https://www.atransmissions.com/product/c...

Re: RWD to AWD Q's

AWD is not required for any of that, basic off-road capabilities can be had by using a traction adder, like a limited slip or a locker. I have a list of them for our vans here: https://sites.google.com/site/astrosafariinfo/transmissions-transfer-case-and-differentials/differentials A whole lot easi...

RWD to AWD Q's

I did some searching, but I dont know the terminology for what I am looking for. I have a STOCK RWD 03 Astro. I needed a vehicle and settled for a RWD instead of waiting for a AWD. It runs well. No real issues. I want/wanted an AWD for: - a 3-4in lift - some beefier(32s?) tires - basic offroad capab...
