4 link rear
IFS front.
change the timing belt
Avoid automatics
check for rust in the frame behind the rear wheels.


What year are you talking about? in 96 they went to unibody construction, they are ok.. but older are better.

pretty sure its a 93, auto, im getting it for free, leaks coolant and they have to fill it up every two weeks, looks like pump stat or rad, Friend just wants me to have it and him use it once or twice a year to go camping. It looks ok to me, sounds like ill be fixing a very minor leak and doing the timing belt just for peace of mind.

If you do the timeing belt and or water pump do them at the same time.
you have to tear the front of the engine down to get to both of them.

also, since its an auto, get an external cooler. trust me on this one.

disconnect the factory one and run the lines to an external aftermarket one.
the factory ones get plugged up easily, causing the tranny to over heat.. and kills them.

Most toy and chevy rims should fit, I've got rims off of a toyota on mine. I'm a bit hazy on it but I think the centre hole on some chevy wheels might be a problem, might be too small. Either way the bolt pattern is the same.

fold the back seats forward and check for rust in the floor..mine had a perfect body then i looked under that and had a 2 foot hole.

also the frame behind that same spot will be full of crap..the angle of it and beign all boxed in will keep muck in there and super hard to get out.

again trust the guys up top about the auto's....they go bad often and overheat..

5 spd are fun...can fit 31's with no mod...

gas milegage sucks tho..i put 70$ of gas in when the price was 1.25/L and it would get me approx 250-275 miles.

and that was drivign very easy as my clutch was almost burnt out.

Try looking at an R.V Dealer as they usualy have larger capacity trans coolers for sale, just a thought, may save you time trying to locate one!:)
