    If everything comes out of a 3/4 ton Chevy it should be a very easy bolt in for a blazer.

    If it's from a 2wd 3/4 ton then you need to raise the shock mounts 2". Other then that and sometimes the ebrake cable it's bolt in.

    try not to buy anything that has been layin around for years!! depending on the years, the front rotor backing plates will rot away. The replacment from GM is about 60 a side.I don't worry to much about rotors, i usually replace them anyways. just rotors, 35.00 each. I have a couple of sets I am selling, are you in germany???
