On every ZR2 I know of that has done an axle flip on the rear, they put in a solid axle up front, usually a D44. A lot of work but worth it as long as you don't take short cuts.

Look for 03 and earlier back to 98, they will fit. GM stopped making the S10 in 03 but kept making Blazers/Jimmys up to 05. The aftermarket only lists up to 03 for this reason for some reason.
