Granny swap, can I keep it 4wd?

Asked by Sep 16, 2017 at 07:51 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet S-10 STD Standard Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Car Customization

Putting a 2.5 with manual tranny 2wd into a 4.3
4wd automatic model of the same year (1989 s10)
I heard the output shafts are different but is there a
way to keep it 4wd?

1 Answer


No, the transmission must be 4x4 so that the transfer case will bolt on to the rear of it.
