Greetings. with the rising fuel costs, the poor mileage that i get from my '00 ZR2 (Sonoma High Rider) has really been a focus of my attention.
i typically get only 15-17 MPG. knowing that the Blazer equivalent can get as high as 22 MPG, my questions is: has anyone switched the gearing on a ZR2 with a Blazer? Both vehicles have the 4.3 liter V6, yet one does considerably better on mileage...leads me to believe it's a gearing issue.
#101 of 122 1989 Rim change from 14 to 15 inch

I want to change the 14 inch, 5 lug (4 3/4 ) rims on my 2 wheel drive S10 to used 15X7 rims. I am getting conflicting info regarding the ability to use 4X4 rims. Several places said the 4X4 rims would work while others say they won't work. Need some direction here. Also, am wanting to put the 1998 - 2002 aluminum 5 slot rims on it - will that work?

I am wondering if any of the applications available for the vortec motors will match up with the earlier S15 4.3?

Im preparing to do a rear brake conversion on my 1994 sonoma, I just wanted to get some info from someone who has previously done this and see what the nominal cost is.

I'm not sure how similar the interiors are, but the Izuzu pickup is almost identical to the S10 (they were both made by Izuzu).

I have a 1984 S15 with the 2.8L V6 engine and the stock transmission.
Does anyone know if putting a newer (1989 or newer) model's 4.3L V6 in will help me avoid having to do a transmission swap?
I have no idea if they are compatible, hoping someone else does or has another suggestion.

hi i was tryn to do the same for my 96 and what i find out is i dont no in your 94 but try a junk yard cause is more cheaper look for a suv like the jimmy or the blazer and they come with disc brakes and evrithing fits all you need is the brakes lines because is diferent but the rest is the same you'll save some money there

Not to insane, I remember seeing a mid 80s s10 in a truck mag that had an Lt1, irock 5spd, dont remember the rear axle size, that rocked. I say if money not too much of an object, then custom build it to your spec. Good Luck!
