    Some pictures of what I did this week. Thanks Shane74 for popping by to give me a heads up on my driveline angles before welding out the spring perches. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Now on to brake lines, Steering arms, and Crossover steering.

    I have been trying to figure out what lift / tires to run on my 1st gen. What tire size / lift was on the front before the swap? What about after?

    Sure is a nice looking K5 you have there.

    Thanks John

    Before the swap, stock sagging suspension with 33"-12.5 which are for sale btw. After the swap 6" front suspension springs from tuff country which sits 2" taller then my other 1st gen blazer with 6" front springs from Superlift I'm gaining an inch with the Dana 60 but why 2" /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif. The back has like a 3" block with an ORD 4" shackle flip. I will be putting 37"-13 on /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Should be streetable soon. I'm waiting for a guy at my work to machine my steering arms and getting sick of waiting /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I need to get longer brake lines made and tie rod and draglink arms tapped for the TRE's Anyone got a 7/8-18 LH amd RH tap I can borrow?

    Browns Camp could be a possibility /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
