    Default 1st and 2nd gen s10 rear ends

    basically my question is , are 2wd 6 cylinder s10 rear ends the same? can you pull a 1st gen s10 rear and directly bolt it in a 2nd gen without changing anything at all.....

    i'm sure to someone with a 20 year old mullet-car, they both look like "gul-durn spaceships!"

    Not sure about technical specifications but will surely recommend you not to try out something like this on your own and always ensure you take proper mechanical information from an experienced person so that you wont end up damaging your vehicle and waste your precious time in doing so.
