Blazer and Shortbed Wheelbase difference

Anyone know? Looking at buying a brake line setup for a short bed for my K5 (no one sells them for it except LMC, and my truck won't live long enough to warrant buying stainless) and just modifying the lines to the rear if necessary, I would imagine its a foot or less of difference.

K5 ................ 106.5"
Shortbox Pickup ... 117.5"
Suburban .......... 129.5"
Longbox Pickup .... 131.5"
Crewcab Pickup .... 164.5"


Go to the auto parts store, for less than $6 you can get a new line.
