    I am aquireing a matched set of axles from a dually tommorrow. Can I use the rear on my blazer without any problems? I know these rears are narrower, will there be any clearance problems? If so I might just have to regear my 14 bolt. Second question, what can I do to the front end to remove the spacer to obtain the proper offset for the wheels? Is this a task that just requires removing a piece or is it something that needs different parts? Also , are the spring mounts in the proper location? Thanks in advance for all the help.

    No, will require spring pad changes.

    You will have to get new single wheel hubs for the front axle. You can re-use the rotors. Don't know about the rear.
