    Glad to see your getting around to putting them in. Thanks again and I know what you mean about a long trip I have in laws in Tacoma and I dread that trip can't imagine from Everett. It was great meeting you and your friend. We kind of worried about if you had a place to put them in or the know how, guess we should have let you take a good look at our blazer to get an idea. Its pretty much a bolt in process with a difference in rear u joint and different u bolts. These guys here there are quite a few up north that probably will be nice enough to help out.

    thanks!, Thanks to SeattleK5 i got them in, took all day, some pizza and a trip to pull-a-part but we got them in by sundown, still need to hook the e-brake up (probably doing that friday) and taking a look at those rear brakes. The Adjusters are seized up and my brakes now suck! but i love having the 4:10's, alot better than my old 3:08's.. thanks guys!

    Thats awesome they are in /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif About the rear brakes get used to crawling under there with WD40 and adjusting them, typical 14 bolt issue where the adjusters will fight you and not adjust properly.

    yea disc brake would be nice, just don't have the money at this time.. but i need to do something soon, i have to put the pedal to the floor to stop, and this morning with all the rain out, i came up to a light (bout 15mph) and put the brake down and the rear's locked up on me.. it kinda took me by suprise cause i was skidding.. but i'll brake out the WD40 and give it a shot..

    I would love to have rear disc brakes.

    You got pics of them installed? Would love to see my old axles in something good finally.
