Great. I did drop the exhaust system after a long jump. I hit the dune at around 70 mph and it started to nose over. On the second bounce I broke all my exhaust hangers Should have kept it down the 40 mph or so where it was manageable. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor?_STUCKY wrote:How did the Dana 44 hold up?

I'll snap a cell phone pic, if I see it. It looks just the same. Last week he had the topper off. He did mount a safari basket on the topper.... since Thunder I is still around, can you get a current picture?
I have a 1971 V-8 Vega Delivery in the garage. It will be his when he puts a new paint job on it. I will disable the NOS while on the street. It is a wonderful little car. 283 ci and a powergildeWhat are you planning for the dreadful day your son gets his license? Starting on a new platform or you gonna whip out an s10 on 33s?

For my LS 5.7L engine, I looked to the GM Vortec 6.0L with hydroboost. Napa part number NSP 81-1411 . Current cost as of 1/26/11 is $38.99 with a $7.80 core.
Hose Port Type : Tube Fitting
P/S Pump Line Thread Size : M16 x 1.5
P/S Pump Shaft Type : w/ Hub, Internal Thread
This pump is rated to produce 1280-1550psi and puts out 1.7GPM at 400rpm and 3.6GPM at 1600rpm.
I called into our tech line on this.
Stock ratings for the 4.3L Vortec pump (I looked up a '96 S10 all models 2wd/4wd) are as follows:
Max PSI is when you're at knuckle stop, cranking the wheel. = 850-1120psi
GPM at idle (IIRC S10's idle around 550rpm) = 1.0-1.4gpm
GPM max (maxes out at 1500 rpm engine speed) = 2.2-2.9gpm
That's for Napa part number NSP 81-1209.
Hose Port Type : O-ring
P/S Pump Line Thread Size : M16 X 1.5
P/S Pump Shaft Type : Press On
Seeing as it's a common P-pump, I'd probably try the 81-1411 pump I listed above. If it doesn't work for some reason, bring it back.

I tried to make things worse by switching to the ZQ8 quick ratio steering box. It still works great.
I think it is a better match for the system and larger tires. It is not super easy steering. It feels natural and there is still feedback.
I would do it again I would probably cuss, and complain, swearing never to try it again though.
What parts do I need?
GM PART # 26009894 $12.44 FITTING
GM PART # 5688035 $2.72 SEAL V
GM PART # 5688037 $3.52 SPRING V
