    I have single shocks up front on my Blazer. Where can i get a kit or what ever to convert to dual. Also, can i convert rear to dual shocks also?

    Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down.

    4 the front you could find one in the bone yard and get the brackets off it 4 yours not sure about the rear but just a word of warning going to duel shocks will greatly stiffen your ride

    Don't do it!

    My 1991 has dual shocks on the front and it really rides rough over the bumpy stuff! I was actually trying to take one of my duals off, but then gave up because everything is so rusted together. You really should think about this before you do it. I can jump on the back bumper and get about 6" of movement, but if I jump on the front bumper, I get about 1" of movement!
