    I’d read somewhere that pre 2000 vans will need mods to do the s10 spring swap. True? If so, what do I need? 🙂

    I acquired this beauty a few years ago hoping to build a camper van. Now I am trying to have everything complete for a several month trip starting November 28th! Pulled the engine out the front 2 nights ago and thought I would share some pics. I know everyone wants to drop the subframe, but I...
  4. 4WD,AWD And Transfer Case
    So a few hours and a few hundred miles after buying my van, heard a LOUD THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP on the highway. Pulled off. Wheels looked fine, some play in the CV so I towed it home from there. After inspection, there's A LOT of play on the passenger side CV where it meets the front diff, and...
  5. 4WD,AWD And Transfer Case
    I have the opportunity to buy a complete ‘99 AWD donor car and want to swap the subframe into my ‘02 RWD. The only part that’s intimidating to me is the wiring. Can I just avoid the wiring headache by getting the JOR 4x4 conversion kit or will I need to swap the harness and ECM into my RWD?

  8. 4WD,AWD And Transfer Case
    Okay so I’m new here and have an awd question. I have a 99 Astro van and want to make it awd. I understand how everything works mechanically and electronically. But I’m curious if you can take a awd subframe from an 03 and up van to make it 6 bolt. I’m not sure if the subframe bolts up the same...

    Ive picked up a 2002 AWD astro with 400,000km that had a seized motor as a project. Ive taken the motor apart (looks like previous owners never did maintenance of any kind.) and found that the thrust bearing spun, so the cranks out getting machined. ive also got the block, heads and pistons out...

  11. Automatic
    This is a rehash of a rehash of a rehash, and I'm really sorry, but I keep getting somewhat conflicting information. Most information I've gotten makes me think that mine has a deep pan. It's also a 2000 so I believe I read somewhere that some '97s and all '98s and above have deep pans, but I...
  12. Lowered Suspension
    Hey, friends. I have a 2000 Astro AWD that is 100% factory at the moment, with the exception of the previous owner cranking the torsion bars all the way up to raise the front to the max, and putting oversized 275/60R15 tires that rub on every side! The goal for the van is a 400 or so HP v8 swap...
