    just curious as to why you want dual shocks in the front? i put dual shocks all the way around on my 78 blazer and took them off less than 6 months later.......it rode like an old wagon on a logging road!!! unless you are planning on jumping or showing the blazer i wouldn't recommend it. dual shocks in the rear will help with towing.

    Explorer pro comp sells aftermarket brackets for 20-25$..I bought a pair at www.macromotive.com, but sold them here.
    I changed my priorities.

    I went to the dealer (a few years back) and bought some for a "quad shock" truck - cost about $12 each then. They are bolt on brackets that hold 1 shock, they're used to mount a shock slightly forward and higher than the one in the standard position.

    Just use a mid 80's to 91 Blazer w/ the "quad shock" option as the application and the dealer should be able to find them.

    I had the Quad set up on my 87...it sucked...I don't know how the previous owner lived with it...With 4 Rancho 5000's up therre it was SOOOOOO stiff...I took off the shocks and now it rides and flexes better...if you want the brackets, I'll cut 'em off for you for you if you pay shipping...
