    I installed my new "Echobit style" brackets for the rear of my Blazer this saturday. It looks funny right now. Everyone was staring at me when I drove back home. Those are 31x10.50xR15 tires that actually measures 28.5" high. There's a 2" body lift installed in there, but it doesn't look like it.

    I apologize to Borrego for not buying them from him, but shipping charges to my country and taxes would make his brackets prohibitive, so I had a local shop build me a set.

    Still to go:

    -Clean and paint 14 bolt FF
    -Install 14 bolt FF
    -New longer brake hoses
    -New springs for the front (local shop)
    -Clean and paint Front Dana 60
    -Install Dana 60

    hmmm... it sounds I'm more like 25% done.

    I was too tired to measure (remove both spring packs with no WD40 on 23 year old bolts), but I'm thinking about 7", since the top of the hanger is not really close to the top.

    I can't tell for sure, but is the shackle shimmed on both sides to prevent it from shifting? Looks like it did the trick. Now what about the front end?

    I don't blame you for making them instead, shipping WAS quite expensive ! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
