Well I just orderd and ORD 1-inch body lift, and new body mounts for my 86 blazer. 700r4,208. My question is, will any steering components, or linkage..tranny,t-case.. need to be lengthened? My floor is pretty rotted, exposing basicly every mount, which is good and bad. Easy access, yet probably extremely rusted bolts. Any tips or advice with the install? Any help is appreciated!
might spay some PB blaster on all your mount bolts every day starting about a week before you do the install of it. That will make the old ones comeout easier. Probably need to adjust auto tranny linkage (easy), maybe gas filler tube (maybe not on 1"), steering shaft, tranny linkage, and fan shroud if it comes close to the fan.
Thanks for the Help. I've been spraying down the bolts, hopefully it'll help. How do I go about adjusting the tranny linkage? Will it need to be cut, and a 1 -inch piece of metal inserted and welded? Thanks again for the help!
There should be enough rod there to adjust for a 1" body lift. Just loosen bolt...put on lift...then shift the tranny linkage by hand to park (it should already be there, actually), put the gear selector in park, and tighten down the bolt. It may take some little adjustments after the initial setting, but not much else.
