  1. X2 running one in my rig.
  2. Welcome! Post up some pics of your rig when you can.
  3. It will help with a stock setup if your planning to crank the bars a bit or install new keys and want to keep the CV angles in check. For those that want to use just lift keys, the diff brackets could/would help.
  4. If the headlights are working manually, all fuses and relays are good. You need to check the ambient light sensor in the passenger speaker grill on the dash. Or it could be a problem with the body control module.
  5. No worries, good to be sure.
  6. Yes, just plan on swapping all of your sensors, distributor, accessories and brackets, etc.... Look in your glovebox for the engine RPO code, for 03 it should be LU3 but could be LG3, the only real difference is the improved injectors, which you now have installed in your blown motor and the LU3 had the "quiet cam" in it. Same lift specs and all, just profiled differently to keep the lifters in contact with the cam during ramp down. 2002 saw major changes to the 4.3L fuel-injection system. For 2002 California emission Chevrolet Astros, GMC Safaris, Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras (This includes S10's) all came equipped with the updated LU3 4.3L. 2003 saw the L35 discontinued and the LU3 replacing it in all other applications. A new variation was also introduced in 2003, the LG3. For 2004 to 2009 the LU3 has been the only 4.3L produced. The biggest change to the LU3 and LG3 was the fuel-injection system. These engines used a multipoint fuel-injection system, with six Multec II fuel injectors mounted at each intake port on the manifold. The composite upper intake manifold and cast aluminum lower intake from the L35 engine is also used on the LU3. The LG3 uses a cast aluminum upper intake and a cast iron lower intake.[6] The LU3 also received a quiet cam to help reduce vibration at both idle and high engine speeds. This camshaft used the same lift and duration as the older design, but the cam was reprofiled to keep the valve lifters in full contact with the cam lobes as the cam ramps down.[6] The LG3 was used in Chevrolet and GMC S-series pickups and was only produced for 2003. The LU3 was used in the Chevrolet and GMC full-size trucks and vans, the Chevrolet Astro and GMC Safari vans and the Chevrolet S-10 Blazer and GMC S-15 Jimmy. The LG3 was rated at 180 hp (130 kW) and 245 lb·ft (332 N·m) of torque. The LU3 was rated at 190-200 hp and 250–260 lb·ft of torque. Year Horsepower Torque Fuel System Compression Ratio RPO Applications 2003 180 hp (130 kW) at 4,400 rpm 245 lb·ft (332 N·m) at 2,800 rpm MPFI 9.2:1 LG3 5 2003–2005 190 hp (140 kW) at 4,400 rpm 250 lb·ft (339 N·m) at 2,800 rpm MPFI 9.2:1 LU3 3,4,6 2002–2003 200 hp (150 kW) at 4,400 rpm 250 lb·ft (339 N·m) at 2,800 rpm MPFI 9.2:1 LU3 2 2002–2003 200 hp (150 kW) at 4,600 rpm 260 lb·ft (353 N·m) at 2,800 rpm MPFI 9.2:1 LU3 1 2004–2009 195 hp (145 kW) at 4,600 rpm 260 lb·ft (353 N·m) at 2,800 rpm MPFI 9.2:1 LU3 1,2
  7. Well the fullsize stops are for the lower arms ( If we are talking about the same thing), the ones I am talking about are for the upper arms. The stops in the kit are very thin and allow a lot of suspension droop, its just a bit much. The shocks that come in the kit are longer. These are the lengths per Rough Country: ZR2 RC Lift Kit Shock Lengths: The front shock is 19.7 extended and 12.4 compressed The rear shock is 26 extended and 15.5 compressed as measured from the center of each eye Also, just in case you was to need it: Ball joint in the A-Arms: Moog K6540
  8. Welcome. Good luck with the search. There are good ones out there still.
  9. Now that I am looking a little closer, it looks like you had a wrist pin break.
  10. Front accessory items and brackets, exhaust from your rig, the silvy valve covers I am pretty sure would work, just have to swap sides with them. Or use yours, you would have the option there. Oil pan I am not sure of, might be worth it to hit up a JY for an S10 pan. Any aluminum 4x4 S series pan, don't know of any differences. The intake manifold and injection system is the same across all versions. Throttlebody may be different, so just use yours. I believe all the sensors are the same. GM does not change anything they don't need to. And the 4.3 in the S10 and Silvy are the same engines with only subtle differences. If you buy a long block, then you will just be swapping parts from the old to new, and will need to buy an oil pan.
  11. A little high, but that is good coverage.
  12. Looks like you had a rod break? Jasper is very hit and miss, more miss it seems so good idea to stay away from them. Don't know anything about powertrain brand engines. A GM crate engine a possibility? Those you know are good and have a warranty.
  13. Wow big boom! The Silverado 4.3's will work in the S10's. Use your external parts it will bolt right up. I think you might have to swap the valve covers due to the oil fill on the silvy is on the drivers side. Silverado intake should be the same.
  14. I have sockets I bought from harbor freight back in 1988 when they were still a mail order only company. Still use them at my work in a heavy industry setting. Have been great tools. I've broke a few over the years, but not many.
