    Yes.. it requires a new radiator support to accept the 4 headlight system.. I have a 83 and a 89 Blazer.. and they are both different near the light mounting area.
    They are priced pretty good in LMC catalog..
    Hope this helps.

    I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work. www.rocko.rockcrawler.com

    Yes, You will need the 89-91 radiator support for four headlight system. I did a technical writeup with part numbers in the Technical section. You should find it helpful. Email me if you ever have questions npickett@toast.net

    It's up to $50, now, but still cheap!

    1 ton '87 Chevy SWB in the making!
