    are the 4x4 chevy trucks the same as the blazers in that the rear is 3in. shorter that front?
    also can you safely use spacers with 38" tires...thanx in advance...and keep Blazin!

    The size of the tires on the spacers shouldn't make a difference, the problem usually comes into play when using offset wheels & large spacers. All of the rearends I can think of (4x4's) are offset. The offset will differ with differn't years, models & chassis. I currently have a 93 3/4ton rearend and its wider than the stock 10blt. I haven't came to the conclusion exactly how much wider, but its aprox 1 1/2" wider than the stock 10blt.

    Well,
    If you have a 10-bolt I wouldn't run 38's anyway without axles mods etc...If you have a 12 or 14, definately. I have a freind running the spacers with 35's doing some severe driving, and a year later no signs of excessive wear on the out bearings or seals...Go for it...

    Mike
