    will a 14 bolt out of a 79 2wd chevy 3/4 ton bolt right up to a 86 blazer without moving spring perches or shock mounts?

    Will bolt in with no trouble but I do not know about the shocks so try it I have used many 2 wd 14 bolts in my trucks without moving shock mounts. I did always have to go to a longer shock. Try and see what happens.

    It will be a direct bolt in shocks included. The only difference between 2WD and 4WD are the shock brackets hang about 2-3" lower on the 2WD axles. You might have to modify the driver shock mount unless you run your shocks upside down because the shock body might hit the mount before you align the bolt hole up.
