    hahaha. have you even looked at them? the 2wd upper arms are mounted at an angle on TOP of the frame rails and the 4x4's are mounted on the side and straight. The bottom arms mount like under the oil pan and the 4x4's mount under the frame rails you will need to switch the part of the frame that the arms mount to not just the mounts

    well the after you would remove the 4x4 arms you'll be left with room to mount the 2wd arms and brackets. if will look the same when the 4x4 is stripped as if a 2wd was stripped of their suspension parts.

    Ok guys here is the deal, I was reading through my post after reading a few of the negative posts and realized there is one step that forgot about this whole deal that is one more thing that has to be welded. If you have looked under a 2wd blazer or pickup you will notice that there is a crossmember under the motor in which the lower control arms are mounted. This is the key Item you need this crossmember now GM sells it new for 379 but junkyards sell them for 175 I happened to luck out cause I had a 2wd blazer that I used for parts. I appologize for the misleading information but If you are still interested in Knowing how to do this conversion then I will post pictures when they are developed sorry no digital camera. Thanks for the understanding and again I appologize for the false information.

    WHy would you want to get rid of 4wd anyway? I know that 4wd's can be bagged... I wouldn't bag my truck anyway, but I guess if I were to bag it, I'd still want the 4wd...(granted, I don't know that much about bags)

    if your gonna go through all that trouble, wouldnt it be just as easy and probably would have a better outcome to just do a front clip swap?? You could also swap on a mustang II front end or something alot cooler than trying to fit on 2wd s-10 crap

    get a 2wd clip and weld it in, or get a whole frame.. for the amount of work and frustration of get a 4x4 to "work" correctly bagged you could have welded a 2wd clip on and been done and cruising it down the road instead of figured out how to get it to function.

    when i read the first post i was thinking the op was smocking some good shit... lol

    as 2wd parts DO NOT bolt on a 4x4 frame...

    i wish.

    i also have a 4wd and looking for a frame . but i do have a lead on a 2wd s10 pickup..... if i get it ill cut the frame in half as i want the 2wd trany crossmember mounting points. so were the frame turns from a box to c-channel is were ill cut.

    and yes i know this is an old post.............
