You will not find them because they do not exist. That is not how the front axle engagement works on S-10's.

There is a vacuum actuated sliding collar on the passenger side of the front differential that locks the two front axles together in 4wd. To eliminate the vacuum system, you need to replace it with a cable-pull posi-lock type device as described in the second post and cap the line from the transfer case or replace the sliding collar and two piece passenger side shaft with a one-piece shaft from an AWD Oldsmobile Bravada.
