The local Upull had a half price sale today. I looked around the yard and found a '96 Rodeo with a G80 axle - V6, 16" wheels, disc brakes, nice shape. It rained like a d* dog and I was a mudbag at the end of the ordeal. Anyway, I got the complete axle assembly with the dshaft yolk to adapt this unit to my D21 . I even took the entire ebrake assemby - cables, brackets all hardware and the ebrake handle, although I'm pretty sure I won't be able to make it work.

Here's a pic...



This is the real deal baby...


I will install this in the next 2 weeks, more pics coming.
I'll install the aluminum support cover, Royal Purple gear oil and the GM posi additive.
I'm pretty sure that this is an Eaton clutch type posi.
The paint on the axle looks really good, I'll pressure wash it and clean it up.

The truck used to hop so badly, I was afraid I was going to rip the tranny up.
Now it just spins and hooks. The 14.9 time is still with tire spin off the line. I have to look at my time slips to see what the 60' time is. I think it's right around 2.0. If I put slicks on it, I might cut a few more 10ths off.
Anyway, I'll see if I have better pics, and take some measurements.

Those bars look familiar...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you know who built them. He calls them "Daggers".
BTW, I picked up an '80 LUV.

i think youll def be able to make it all work. that axle looks really clean too. nice that you get all the cables and stuff. with some cable connectors from the hardware store itll def work. the driveshaft will prob bolt right up too.

I'll post pics as I go.
Thanks for the thread, I would probably have not thought of this otherwise.
BTW, Chevy S10 4X4 = 59" D to D. This means that any Bravada, or 4X4 S10 would probably work too. My guess is that the spring dimension would be cool too.
I'll check it out.

My Hard is a '92 = no ABS
I still disconnected the entire ABS assembly from the donor just in case.

Mhead, Sorry - I didn't mean to jack this thread. I'll start a new one with detailed pics of the rear install in my truck.

If anything you should "jack" this thread so that all information pertaining to the swap is in the same location it's fine.

As for the ABS sensor on the top of the pumpkin of the data 44 I just left it disconnected I cut the wire to the ABS sensor short that's all that I did I didn't want to leave a hole in the pumpkin

I'm pretty sure the ABS sensor is just a little magnet that's it

your correct. and just so everyone knows, if you take the sensor out it isent a hole all the way down to the pumkin. just an FYI

wonder if could just put a little plate over the hole and weld it shut, so it looks a little cleaner than a dangling wire, i dont see why not
