    I have a 1983 K5, I also have a 1979 3/4 suburban parts truck. I would like to take the Suburban axels and Rancho suspension (as complete systems) and just move it to the Blazer. MMMMMMMM, I did a search on this site, but nuttin really got to the goodies.

    Thanks again guys,

    i'm not totally sure but, the rears should bolt right up.. if anything you'll have to move the spring perches and shock mounts..also, if you are going to use the sub. leaf springs then measure your springs to make sure they are both the same length.. don't know if they are longer or not.

    ANYBODY LOSE THEIR JEEP????????[​IMG]

    <font color=blue>Just unbolt the springs from the frame on the sub and roll them (with the axles) under your K5. Everything should bolt up. You will need a 1350/1310 hybrid u-joint for the rear driveshaft, Napa has this. Everything from the sub should bolt up to the K5.</font color=blue>
