    I quess you rotated your axle? Please tell me more. How much rotation? Did you lower tc if so how? How do you handle vibration with such an angle change? Do you have trouble with u-joints? 8" and 37" WOW, My 35's rubbed inside body I added 1.5" spacers no trouble yet it does concern me though. Any more of your advice and problems will be appreciated. Very impressed and want to keep posted about engine swap. Should be fairly easy, but I am concerned about your distributor clearence. It would kill me to make room on fire wall with hammer. Any thoughts? Are you in Texas? Would like to help. If close. I am in Amarillo.

    At this time, I am leaving t.c. where its at. As far as clearance, it does rub pretty bad w/ 39's, but thats what i have the sawzall for, hehe.And yes dist. will be tight but i think it will go, also debating on whether to move all forw. inch or two, just for that little extra room. I am located in michigan. I am taking pictures of everything i do, and when i have some spare time will start posting, thanx for reply.

    Where did you get your body lift. I have not looked much, seems they don't list for 72's. Many people talk of this here and I assume 73's were jigged the same and will work. Have you found this to be true?

    I bought the truck last early summer and it already had the lift, so I cant say. I would think someone should know.

    Hey do you go to Silver Lake? or planning on it? our Blazers are the same color just different motor size. I'm doing my axles fist then getting the 502 Ram Jet with iron heads. Maybe I'll see you up there.
