    New Truck

    My red truck was crashed a couple weeks ago, i will plan on fixing the truck, and make it better. picture of how the truck looked before





    Found a 94 macrocab for sale in south florida from arekoner on the forum, I plan on swapping the turbo setup from the red truck to the new truck. and do a 4g63t in the red truck and go drag racing.

    That's a bummer that your truck got bent up Rahtid but your new acquisition looks pretty good. The extra cab space will make it a more practical ride.

    Longer wheelbase for longer drifts.

    Can't wait to see you tear into this.

    Sorry about your red truck. Glad to see its not going to the scrap yard. Lil fender bender is a good excuse to go back and build it even nicer

    belltech still makes shocks for these trucks - I bought a whole set for the 86 project truck for like $ 50 for all 4 nitro active as a closeout. S10 shocks are the same length, but are valved different than the ones for our trucks.

    Compared to our stock shocks and after 25+ years of low riding the heck out of them and preparing the truck for hauling loads like you do, lol. your probably going to luv the handling.
    I returned my belltech shock because of the cutting thing. Just couldn't see chopping them up like that. Belltech should of did this. They were too soft for me also. Just my preference I guess.


    Sorry your truck got hurt!!!

    Were the front old ones mighty max specific? I wonder if these are stiffer than toxic shocks. I believe they are suppose to be the best in terms of a stiff sho k

    Toxic are stiffer, Nitro are a smoother stiff ride and kyb are even stiffer, I think pennyman uses tokico shocks. It's all preference for what your butt likes and keeps the truck from slapping stoppers. Not sure the difference that 1st gen and 2nd gen make though. Definitely need some type of drop shocks for lowered rides.

    the suspension between 1st and 2nd gen is the same, just differences in pitman and idler arms (2wd). Spindles are different, but interchange - brake calipers and mounting position to allow for vented front rotors on 2nd gen.

    Installed the the turbo motor out of the other truck into the new truck, also installed a new aluminum radiator and decided to get the bigger radiator they offered because of the turbo setup
