Hello everyone,

I picked up a 92 G30 454 4l80e for a weekend fishing wagon. It was formally a shuttle van it’s whole life.

This is how I picked it up.

After the new meats and step removal.

They rubbed slightly in the front, here is the before gap.

The front end received new springs, upper complete control arms, new idler and pitman.

Autozone loadrider springs

Fender gap after.

About a good inch and a half or 2

Definitely sits better!

The vin does start with that, that’s cool!

I rushed the post a little bit earlier. The van was purchased for a local restaurant shuttle bus, I picked it up from a son of the father who owned the restaurant when he passed away.

I have not put the idler and pitman on yet, I’m waiting an the rest of the front end goodies to show up.
Tie rods, shocks, stabilizers, sway bar bushings.

I also will be doing a full airbag assist with in cab controller soon.

Lots of additional plans in the works, next will be carpet, minor rust repair, headlight trim ring is broken, and paint.

Eventually it will end up 4wd and on 35’s also. Going to do an engine rebuild and trans rebuild before that.

The weak points of these monsters are the radiator N oil cooler lines. Rad cracks on the side plastic part and the oil lines are not the best, I took my lines to a hydrolic shop and up graded the rubber ... DONT lose those end fittings... bear to find. Get rid of the pancake style muffler .

Want to sell it ?? lol
