    I am pretty sure that the difference between lifts in first and 2nd gen blazers is the front springs. Rear springs are the same right?

    i thought pre 69 front werent same as 69-up through the 80s on front springs ? thats why 69-80s axles swap in up front..

    rear changed a bunch of times
    I just cut up a 72 4x4 blazer this morning becaus eof lack of interest and the rear springs are only 2.5" wide and the 78 and 76 were wider and diffewrent length, thne 2wd is a whole other world, bunches of different rear leaves were made every few years it seems

    i guess im missing something

    interesting,,,,

    run it til it breaks, fix it, and break it again!
