    how many of you guys that have put on a 4" lift have had to get a new front drive shaft. I put a rough country lift on and my front driveshaft wont fit. it is about an inch short. and with a spacer it would probably fit but with no play or extension. My blazer is an 82. thanks

    I just put on a 4" BDS lift, and my front drive shaft is too short. I purchased a spacer etc. and found out today when it got down to it that even with tcase drop I was still 1" too shorts! [​IMG]

    I'm gonna get my drive shaft extended. what year is your blazer? and if a 1" spacer will help fix your problem I got a new one still in the UPS box that'll I'll see ya for cheaper then you can get it new.
