So - project blazer is about to move to the next phase - ready for trails in the spring.
Many questions. Looking for some experiences, some answers, and perhaps alternatives.
Shocks. I think I've settled on some procomp 3000s long enough to handle the rear lift of 2" shackles and add-a-leaf (~3.5").
Same vendor for steering stabilizer. Mine didn't come with one.
spacers. Looks like I've settled on N90s for wheels on this stage of the truck. Fronts rub minor on the frame and if I switch to a 32 (planned) they really will. What size spacer in front and what size in the back...? Looks like 1.5 is common on the tail. I don't want pregnant roller-skate look. Probably go with the e-bay units.
rear axle. I'd love to get my hands on a ZR2 diff, but you have to find one for a decent price and get it shipped. One day. Meantime - putting my 7.5 torsen disc rear from the jimmy under the blazer. I'll grab the spare girdle from the shop then too.
Brake lines. Probably get an earl's kit for a lift. I don't like ballooning stock lines.
The truck has a vibe. I thought it was 4wd-related, but all the front stuff has been replaced. It's not always there and now I can confirm it is not 4wd's problem. The truck had a bent rim (RR) when I got it. Axle or housing maybe tweaked...? Rear DS...? The disc rear is true so when that is done I'll know more.
PA 2" BL should be ordered today. Summit is going to get some $$$ from me...
Unsure about the fender trim. I plan to run 32s and the tire I'm looking at measures 31.8". What ya think...? Will it rub with the front sway disco'd...?
