    I'm sure this has been covered before but how much wider is the front axle than the rear axle on a 72 Blazer and while we're on this...how about on a 91 Blazer? I'm considering buying the bolt on wheel spacers. Thanks, Pat.

    The rear is about 3" narrower (1.5" on each side) then the front. Most people use 1.5" spacers to even it out.
