S10 rear end is not a good choice for a torque arm car as there is no provision to mount the arm.
You can use early S10 axles in a 7.5 Monza/Vega housing to switch to 5 lug wheels, later S10 axles have a larger spline but they can also be used with some carrier and pinion mods.
There is an aftermarket 12 bolt housing with a torque arm provision now or a torque arm mount can be welded to a Ford 9 inch housing.
