    I got a 14ff with disk brakes, that i want to put on a 71 blazer. the ubolt kit that Off Road sells, can it fit the 14bolt, with a 2 inch lift block? Can i still use the emergency brake with the disk brakes? Do i need longer ubolts if i where to put the 1 inch block on the front axle? i think this is all i need to know for now. thank you.

    first off, do not put a block of any size inthe front. It is nothing but problems and it is very dangerous. I am not sure about the ubolts, but the old ones from your 10 or 12 bolt (?) should work. the e-brake might need a bracket piece fabbed where the cable from the cab attaches to the 14B. i got lucky and found one that needed to be "helped" and not fabbed.
    sorry 'bout the lack of speeling =o)

    well i'm gonna put either a 2inch block or leaf in the back , and i heard that you can put the 1 inch block in the front if it is bolted to the spring pack. I don't know if anybody makes a longer u bolt for my blazer. and the bracket is to small to switch to from a 12bolt to a 14bolt, i would be doing some grinding, just enough to make me nervous of it being weak. besides i wanted to go to the newer ubolt style.

    Yes, you can safely put the 1" blocks in the front if they are bolted to the spring pack, which ORD calls 1" Zero Rate Add-a-Leaf.

    Also, ORD has all the U-bolts you need. Just give them a call and tell them what you need. I got the U-bolts for my 14-bolt FF from them and have length to spare.

    Later!

    best thing to do is give us a call and we can sort out whatever you need, it's easier to talk about some of this stuff.
    We can generally get you whatever you need for ubolts with minimum hassle.
    Thanks
