    Building a 86 blazer up, gonna be a DD and weekend warrior...35's for DD 37 boggers offroad
    Drivetrain Specs will be D60/14FF/np205/nv4500/4bt, the D60 is about the only peice I lack but being that I am building this motor for 200+ horse and 450 or so ft-lbs of torque I doubt my d44 will be up for it...

    Only other option still being thrown around is what front springs to run with this heavy motor, I'm thinking HD springs I have 4" e-z rides right now

    I would leave the EZ rides on there. The 4bt weighs about what a big block weighs and I am sure plenty of guys are all right with the softer springs and heavier engine.

    I thought the tuff country HD springs made for winches and BB's, you're definately right my motor weighs about as much as a BB I may be going up to 6" anyway so if I buy new springs /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
