I’ve got a 67 108 and was wondering if anyone here has done any suspension upgrades on these things? Trying to find exact parts is a pain any other Chevy cars have interchangeable parts with these G10 vans?

Hey 89, Welcome!


The Chevy early's are staight axle, leaf spring in the front? If I remember correctly, not coil spring with A arms. On those, guys would replace all the bushings, ball joints tie rods drag links, to tighten up the steering. Maybe heavier coil springs, or new springs if sagged out. Quality shocks. Steering box if needed. Good hunting!!.
IDK about the kingpins, on a strait axle?, but if needed, R&R.

Yes. In 1996 Flint produced 16,239 matching make and models of Chevy G30 vans.

Thanks for the info! What model can I use to search for these parts on sites like JEGS or summit? There’s never a selection for g10 haha

Not surprised, Parts listings for the 1st and 2nd gen will be slim.

Much more common is the 3rd generation G van. 1971 through 1995.

The Early's were also designated by wheelbase, re; 90, or 108.

I believe my friend Fred had a 1965 Sportvan 90.

GMC was the Handi-Van Good hunting!
