    Good pics! So elaborate on the ujoint failure. Did it launch? Low speed or high speed failure. If it launched how did you like that noise?

    no, but I do know which blazer you are talking about, it had a 14bff and about a 8" lift with 38" TSL, it is right by my dads house.......hmmm wonder how much he wants for it.

    DIY4x, yea I was at a stop sign and it binded and KAABOOOKMM crap went flying, further investigation showed that the u-joints where dry as a bone and they just couldnt take it anymore, thats what you get for cheap joints.

    Mine seem to let go when zipping down the highway. Then I have to walk off in some farmers field and find the shaft back. Happened twice now. One front one rear. Rear was no big deal but the front tore up alot of stuff on the way out. Trans pan, exhaust and bent the lower frame lips a little bit. One helluva racket.
