Need S-10 or Ranger Dimensions...

I have enclosed a drawing of some rear frame dimensions I need from you folks. Along with Dimensions, "A", "B", and "C", I also wondered if you could tell me the dimesion between the framerails at both the front and rear leaf spring mounts. If you could give S-10 or Ranger dimensions, that would be great!

Thanks,
Joe

You didn't say what year S-10 dimensions you need, so I don't know if mine will help or not, but here's what I came up with off of my '96. Understand that these are not super-precise measurements, but are the best I could do in dim light in the driveway without the aid of a helper to hold the other end of the tape for me.

A= 52.5"

Approx 23.5" from the front leaf spring mount to the center of the rubber snubber, which should hit the center of the axle.

Approx 29" from the snubber to the rear leaf spring mount.

Width at front leaf spring mount (inside to inside) = 35"

Width at rear leaf spring mount inside to inside was hard for me to determine accurately, as there is not a straight shot without removing the spare tire, but I estimated 34.5" - but, since the front measured 35" that may be a better measurement for the rear as well, since there is at least a half inch of uncertainty in my rear measurement.

Hope these rough measurements help you. If anyone else has the ability to get more precise measurements or measurements for other years, feel free to chime in.

THAT HELPS OUT A TON!!!

I appreciate you crawling around on the ground, I don't know of anyone with an S-10 or Ranger, so you've helped out a bunch.

Thank you!
Joe
