    a i or 2 inch body lift helps, the one in mine is as close to the body as it can be. Yet the 205 still hangs down 1 inch more than it did before

    I understand the jeep thing I drive a BLAZER!!

    I just got through installing it in my 90 model. I can tell you all the issues involved with putting it in a newer Blazer. You should not have any of the problems that I have ran into though. I did put the 1" body lift on. I raised the 205 as high as I could, but then I had to take the fan shroud off, as the fan was hitting the bottom, even after I trimmed as much as I could off of it. I am going to replace the radiator shortly anyway so I am just letting it go for now. I had two new driveshafts made since I went from the 241 case to the doubler. I think that I am going to have to have the rear shaft converted to a CV joint, as I now have a pretty good vibration. I also went ahead and did the double crossmembers just like on the ORD website.
