    I was just wondering if a 3/4 front and rear axles will go directly into my 85 blazer without any prblems and if I would have to move the spring perches or shock mounts.
    Thanks

    Yes they will bolt right into place of the stock Blazer axles, no problems.

    The only thing to look at are the e-brake cables and the u-joint for the rear drive shaft at the pinion end.

    Yep, theyre a direct swap. Like Wes said, youll need the rear u-joint(NAPA #447) and dont forget about the 3/4 ton axles will be 8 lug.

    and if you have a lift over 4 inches you might want to cut and weld the spring perches to give that driveline a better angle.

    like said above,it is a direct bolt in.I had a new driveshaft made with the proper u-joint instead of using the conversion joint.But this can be done in the future if you want.
