Is there any difference between this and a regular bravada shaft?
This shaft is a custom length to allow the use of the snap ring on the CV side, as originally designed for our trucks. The OEM bravada shaft requires that snap ring to be removed to use it in our trucks.
I just finished performing a very quick search and I can't confirm or disprove that they are longer. I can't prove it but, I suspect they're the same. Bravadas share most other parts with the S10. How would the shafts work on ZR2s then? I'm stumpedHenryJ wrote:.........To the best of my knowledge the CV - half shafts on a ZR2 are longer.........
The axle shafts and differential are the same. The difference would be from the axle flange to the hub. The halfshaft longer? Part numbers are different for with and without RPO ZR2. Lengths are different too: W/O ZR2= CV Driveshaft Compressed Length : 23 3/8". With ZR2= CV Driveshaft Compressed Length : 25 3/8"F9K9 wrote:HenryJ wrote:...

I haven't done any work, just google, gooogle, goooooooogle and read.

On the standard S10 front diff, there is a small sensor on the axle tube which tells the TCCM that the front is engaged and than lets the t-case shift into 4wd. If you have an electronically shifted t-case such as a 233 or 236, and perform the bravada axle shaft swap, you must cut this sensor off and splice the wires together. This essentially tells the computer that the front end is always engaged.
