Re: new 87 chevy blazer

Does it have blocks on the rear for the current lift? If the rear spring are arched 4", then putting them up front will net about 8" of lift. If it's just blocks, then you're good to go.

Sounds like a good find. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

They definetly made 10 bolt corp 8 lugs, the last year for the 44 was between 79-80. all the trucks/ blazers after this (besides 1 tons) used 10 bolts, no matter the lug pattern
