    I hve a 77 blazer with the 12 bolt rear and dana 44 frnt. I just bought a set of 39.5 TSL's and i want to be smart and goto 1 ton drivetrain so i dont break anything. What parts do i need to switch out th 1/2 ton parts to dana 60 frnt and 14 bolt rear? Anyone have instructions online or anything? Thanks

    Search button on the bottom of the screen will help you the best

    i can skim over it right quick so you know what to look for when searching

    8 lug wheels, if you go with 15 inch rims you will need to grind the calipers, theres a write up about it somewhere around here,

    you will need u bolts and spring plates, you will need a conversion u joint for the rear driveline, 1310/1350

    brake lines should bolt up, but you might need to do something about the e-brake if you want to have an e-brake (i still dont have one)

    and thats about it. pretty straight forward, Bolt up and go kinda deal.

    lol 84, you dont have an e-brake either? someday we should get together and just get our e-brakes working. make a day of it. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    as far as the 1-ton conversion, just start shopping for the axles... and while you're lookin for a good deal do searches and read a lot here on ck5... you'll figure it all out in no time. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Drivetrain would be the drive shafts too, get some stout drivelines built.
