Name: Josh Location: Warren, Ohio Occupation: Unemployed.. for the moment. Vehicle: 92 Chevy C1500 my new baby. Well im Josh, from ohio. Just aquired my first (legally owned) truck. I used to have a 92 s-10 5-speed but it was never in my name, o I didn't legally own it. I just moved (back) here from Martins Ferry, Ohio. I grew up here in warren. Since I been back, I was handed this 92 C1500 that has been family owned for the last 8 years. My brother was the second owner of it, bought it off some guy for $400. Signed it over to my mom about 8 months ago, who just signed it over to me about a week ago. It has the 4.3l v6 engine. I will be performing a 350 v8 swap here shortly. Came with standard transmission, but my brother swapped it out for automatic because my mom couldn't drive standard. It doesn't have the right rear end for the transmission (since it was made to be standard) so the gearing gives me horrible mpg and makes the driveshaft shake like hell. Far as I know it hasn't really been built up at all. My brother lowered it by removing 3 leafs out of each side in the back, cut the front springs. Yeah so now my work is semi-cut out for me. Gotta find a new spring set for cheap, might just get a couple of 2" spacers and throw them in there for now. Get new leafs for the rear end to re-establish the strength it once had. Gonna get it back to stock height. After I do that I will probably find a new rear end for it, with lower gears to help my mpg and maybe if im lucky it'll have positraction. Right now it's just the passenger rear thats my power wheel. My aspitration for this truck is to first get it back to stock height. After that, i'm going to be doing the v8 swap in it. I was thinking either dropping a 350 bored .40 over to make it a 360 or go to a junk yard and grab a ls1. Lucky for me theres a junk yard that has a wrecked caprice that has a ls1 in it. The owner of the yard said I can have the whole car for $1000, he'll drop it off and pick it up after im done getting the motor, cpu and wiring harness so thats a definite grab! I do have a quick question though involving my rotors. Would the rotors (5 lug) from a 92 k1500 work on mine? I know the k1500s are 4wd and mines just 2wd. But as long as they are 5 lug, would they work?
