Joe, The coupe is currently at Yokum's Signature Hot Rods getting the 9" rear end, air ride and 4 link installed. They are also installing the trunk lift. From, it's going for paint and upholstery. Hopefully, after many years and lots of cash, I will be on the road by fall.
Am interested in hearing what you're doing with the car, and seeing how it all fits together (pictures?). Is the Currie 9", air ride, 4-link, etc., the only mods to the car?
My guess is that the front end probably already has MII or equivalent IFS, and the rest of the drivetrain (engine/trans) is probably 'driving the change' in the rear end. That S10 rear probably isn't hefty enough for the rest of the drivetrain (?).

Yup - I think I recall your posts on the car, and the work behind it.
That S10 rear is the 'weak link' in the drivetrain (so to speak). Better to have something that can handle the power capable of being put through it...
I know it's been awhile since I last gave everyone an update on the coupe, but a lot has gone on in the last couple of years! The 34 is finally at the painters and I will post some pictures once it's painted. Once I get it back from paint, the coupe will be rewired and the 406 and exhaust installed. Then it will go to the upholster for the finishing touches. Alumacraft is building me a grill insert and hopefully it will get here soon! This has been a long journey, and hopefully I'll have it done in time to give myself a good Christmas present. A lot of time and money has gone into this project, but it has been built to my specifications and vision and there will not be another one like it!
