I wondered if the S10 Extreme's had the 8.5" as well, but werent listed as such in my GM info, or in any part# callouts.

Did all 4.3 with manual transmissions have that shock that mounted longitudinally? Its like a 3rd shock, but doesnt manage any vehicle weight, I think its there to stop wheelhop maybe.

I have no idea why GM wouldnt put the 8.5" rear in ALL of their F-bodies? That would have helped greatly.
