    i got a built up 400sbc that i am gonna be sticking in there, the custom spring hanger is about 80lbs or so and is very heavy duty, im gonna be gusseting it to the frame for extra support before everything goes in, i wanted huge lift but a decent ride so i went with 8inch springs,zerorate, and the dropped hangers, plus it tilted the pinion up so it should help with the driveline too

    Sweet, i have a built 406 s.b.c. in my blazer. I can't wait to get my dana 60 and 14 bolt under the blazer. they will have lower gears then what i'm running right now so i should be able to feel all the torque that the sbc 400 are known to have.

    How big are the boggers you're running? 39.5, or 44? Keep us posted on the updates..

    there 39.5s and im running 4.56s with a 4speed/208. when these go bald im gonna get some 42" tsl swampers or something else, the boggers wear way too fast for the amout of pavement pounding it does. when i get new tires i will be sticking in a set of 4.88s or 5.13s also.
