Take a look in at projects and build topics there are a few guys that have mounted entire 4x4 chassis under an Astro!

One of these topics should provide you with some information or at least a good idea of what has to be done.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!

Parts are cheap breakdowns expensive.

Don't worry about miles per gallon, worry about smiles per gallon!
