    I found a killer deal on a dually setup (dana 60/dana 70) anyone ever to try to adapt this onto a blazer? I figured that the axle length would be way to big to put onto a full size blazer, any thoughts?

    There's no easy way to use the Dana 70 is your truck. Its about 8" too wide. and the spring perches are in the wrong spot.

    The Dana 60 front.... You can either swap hubs with a SRW type, machine them, or use dually wheels on the front.

    I say leave the dual rear alone just move the spring perches and bolt that sucker on. But I always wanted to see more dually blazers :)

    Mine's a dually. For the moment anyway.

    That's because I'm the devil.

    Send me a private on how I can get a hold of you. I just finished mechining the front hubs to work as a single wheel application.
