no way I would waste the money... I'm not an S10 expert, but I think all pre '93's were 26 spline 7.5".. '94+ 8.5" started showing up in certin trucks, but mostly 4x4's, and the most common in the earlier years, the ZR2 ( extra wide 4x4 rear )... 2wd 8.5's bring big dollar amounts. 7.5" is just too weak to mess with when there are better/ cheaper solutions.

my suggestion would be a '95-2001 Explorer rear end with trac lock.. it will fit in the S10 with a little coaxing, and the drive shaft can be adapted with parts available at Napa
