    \'86 K5 rear track width

    I have an '86 K5 Blazer. I want to have the rear track width even with the front. I saw an advertisement for it a few months ago but didn't have money. What size spacer do I need? Also, I've done a few things to my blazer and I love it but I'm a rookie (3 inch sus. lift, 33 inch BFGs, rebuilt block, split exhaust from the block). This is my first truck and any (cheap) advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    You mean the track width? There are spacers available to make them a bit wider.

    Thanks. Yes I do mean the track width. I will edit my question. The spacers come in different sizes though. Which size would be appropriate for my ride?

    You need 1.5 inches per side. I can't remember who sells 'em though. [​IMG]
