    Hi everbody! I am a new member I am taking on my 1st project and need a bit of help! I have a 1970 Jimmy 4x4 and was wondering if I could swap front rear ends with a 1981 Blazer, so I could have disk brakes? or is it worth the trouble? thanks for any information you have.

    I think in a 70 the spring width's are different, but the main think is that the 90 versions are weaker.

    You should be able to swap everything from the knuckles out. Keep everything else.
