this is for my 86 carbed d/r 5sp wagon.
if i put the tires with the 55series sidewall on the back and the 50's up front and kept it out of 4wd will i be ok to drive for a while until i get al new 205/50/15's
and my main question, if i HAVE to, i mean last resort, put it into 4wd, will it imeditly toast my tranny, or will it take a little while or would it do nothing because the small differance?

I usualy run a little bit of tire stager in all my 4X4's. A little bit biger tire in front helps the rig pull staiter in mud and snow, and I hve NEVER had any problems with this. The wagon I'm building right now will have stagerd gears front to rear (by just a little) so that I can run the same size tires all around for once

then get some XT6 sway bars, ajustable coilover springs, and some KYB shocks/struts and i will be good for now. until i upgrade the motor to a 6cyl.

i think so i am not tenpted i will just take out the 4wd d/r shifter itself, until i get my new tires
Just take off the shifter knob as a self reminder You can still use it if you are in a low traction situation (mud, snow or dirt road) and you just might want it then!
