    heres what i have done in the last 6 monthes to my blazer;
    rebuilt 12 bolt posi swapped in 3.73's dumped 4.10's
    swapped out th350 for a 700r4
    swapped front drums for 6 lug rotors along with prop valve & new lines
    pertronix hei, dialed in the timing curve on my stroker 385
    1-1/4" sway bar from a 1 ton dually, kyb shocks all around
    tightened up all body mounts, replaced busted bolts

    you'd be surprised, the floor is almost rust free. it was left in a carport for like 20 years in garden grove. its the most solid blazer i have ever seen. i have a frame off resto in progress of a 1972 k5 cst that lost some good original parts to this 2 wheeler. this c5 is a rocket since i put the 700r4 in, its scary
