    Alright as some of u may know i just bought a 87 k5 blazer. I asked a few ? about the shocks. Well finally got all the shocks out of the truck now.

    So now i need to find a good set to buy ? anyways my question is what else should i do to my truck? only reason i got shocks was well the old ones where screwed up.

    Just want to know what else i need?

    I thought about putting in new plugs and wires. ? any ideas what else i should do

    I want this to be able to go off road and also be able to take me to work every day

    well the truck has 35 in tires and a 4 in lift.


    thats about it ^^

    paid 3k for it and after i put new shocks and new brakes it will be up to around 4.5k

    The brakes it has on it now are unable to stop the big tires so i have to go and change everything in the brakes

    you have a picture of this truck? 4,500 for a 4" lift on an otherwise stock blazer seems to way too much. unless it's super clean, minimal rust? Pics!
