So I have a 92 Chevy g20 StarCraft conversion. Pretty cool van unfortunately the top had been leaking and plenty of rusty parts being near the Gulf of Mexico. Been doing basic maintenance and replacing suspension parts. The rear end is the 8.5 10 bolt 30 spline shafts. Was doing the wheel end bearings and one of the axle shafts is pitted. I would rather not drop $150 for a new axle. Plenty of complete rear ends for sale around me but have no way to haul them as the van is up on blocks right now. There’s a pull a part yard that has a 1996 g10 but has no info on the rear end. I’ve tried searching to see what options came in a 96 g10 but can’t find what I need. Does anyone know if it is also a 8.5 10 bolt with 30 spline 5x5 lug shafts? If so is it the same length, roughly 33.34 inches?
Just guessing, but I'd think any 5 lug C truck or G van GM vehicle with an identical rear track measurement, with a 10 bolt, 5x5 lug, 1/2 ton 3/4 ton semi floating rear axle, 80's to '96 may be the same.
IDK about later than '96, '96 model year was GMC Savanah, Chevy Express vans, on the OBS GMT truck platform, but Chevy is a good make for interchangeability between models and GM makes with drivetrain. Good Will Hunting !!
