Parting out 1998 Astro AWD

Postby markmitch [OP] » September 21st 2020, 3:11pm

I bought this 98 originally to build my 89 into a 4x4 so it has a running engine, transmision is tired it is a cargo so it has the front fender extension parts. interior is pretty sparse since it is a cargo. Drivers door is decent front fender on drivers side is decent, pass side is kinda dinged up compared to the drivers side. No front bumper but radiator, shroud, are good. Also it has the complete brake system on it with hydro boost. If you want anything make an offer and I will get your info for shipping cost. I am using the front frame assembly so it is not for sale. I have not taken anything off this van yet. 9/21/2020 I am in norcal 40 minutes from Stockton in the foot hills. Mark

Can I get the front driveshaft - UPS shouldn't be too much.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... Anyone that condones the actions of the American People during the Storming of the Capitol are as complicit as the Assholes themselves.
But no way does this let the Democrats or the MSM off the Hook.

Off top, it the ignition switch good? ...There may be a handful of other things I'm interested in, but need to think on it. I'm in Oakland, so I could pick up.

Yesterday I removed the radiator,grill & marker lights and seats. Today I removed the body mounts, fuel lines, a bunch of wiring, disconnected the hydroboost, and steering column. I still have to disconnect the starter wiring, rear driveshaft e brake cables and remaining brake lines and exhaust will have to be cut. The AC was working when I brought home so those parts are also good. I am not sure if that is it but I am close. The body will stay here till the end of the month so if you need parts from it let me know prior to then. Decent set of gray buckets in it too-I do not need them-make me an offer if you are close to Stockton Ca.

Well I had to cut a few things, but the frame .engine. trans, and transmission are all out. The u bolts on the rear drive shaft I got 2 out and the other 2 were severely stripped so I pulled the frame forward and let the driveshaft slide out onto the ground. Ido not need any of the brake lines because it has anti lock and hydroboost so totally different lines. I cut the harnesses as I also will not need them, fuel lines I cut with my tubing cutter-don't need a fire here . Ac lines also cut. Can you tell I once worked in a salvage yard lol.Bolt cutter. sawzall, grinder with cut off wheels. are your friends. Anyway here are the pictures.

I'm interested in the front seat belts if they're in good shape. When you pull them would you mind taking a pic so I can make sure they fit my 95? I'm in NC so you would have to ship but it would be a small package and I'd pay. Thanks!

If Roadtrip John doesn't want the front seat belts I'll take them. I'm in San Francisco. I think those would fit in a large flatrate box or if you can entice me, I could make the drive. Not sure what else I might need.

I want them as long as they'll fit and we can agree on a price. Don't care that they're gray. Thanks!
