not sure

I know the steering box and pitman arm are the same. I am not sure about the rest of the components.

Why do you want to put truck parts on a car? The spindles are most likely too big to mount on the malibu!

The S10's also share the same front suspension parts and rear differential and brakes from the Monte Carlo,Malibu,(some) Camaro, Cutlass, Regal, Trans Am..etc, along with the steering column and various engine parts. The frames are boxed until you get back to the bed. They are basically a blank canvas for anyone ever wanting to customize one, there is about a billion parts made for them, everything on an S10 is inexpensive (you can buy new fenders for $30!) The are easy to find in any variation(lonbed,shortbed,ext cab, 2wd, 4wd) I bought 2 S10's when I started my project for less than $400. Sold the parts that I was not using(after keeping the better parts) and made about $600-$700. There are several companies that make street rod bodies to bolt directly to an S10 frame, so if you get tired of the stock sheetmetal, you can bolt on a Studebaker or (yes even) a Willy's. Several people use them for various other projects also. I know of one guy that is shortening an Ext.Cab frame to use under a '35 Ford Delivery.
Need anymore info?
Later,
WEIMER
