    The rear will need the spring perches, and mabe the shock mounts relocated. All of the 30's that I have seen had the springs closer to the frame than the 10's and 20's. You could put a conversion u-joint in the driveshaft. I am not sure about the master cyl.

    I agree with Rodzilla, on the rear end you will have to move the perches, and shock mounts, a conversion u-joint will work just fine. You will have to do this process backwards to mount the 14 bolt under a Blazer/Jimmy. And remember to adress the pinion angle when welding the new perches ( one thing I forgot to do) Good luck.. it's not as hard as it sounds! Jon
