    I want to buy a set of 1.5" wheel spacers for a 14 bolt FF.
    This is to make front and rear track width the same.
    I have emailed a couple of companies and am having a hard time finding a new set.
    Does anyone have a set they want to sell?
    Or want to tell me where they bought it from?

    You can accomplish the same thing by installing a 3/4 Chevy Van 14B FF rear end in your Blazer. It will need the spring perches relocated, but they are approx. 3" wider overall than the Truck 14B FF. You can probably find a rear end just as cheap as you can the spacers.

    The problem with that would be that I already have substantial time/money in my 14 bolt.
    I have rear discs, detroit, brand new bearings throughout(carrier, pinion, wheel).
    I'm just now looking to see if the 1.5" width is ideal or not. I think I'll need to go measure them myself.

    I think you'll find that buying 1.5" spacers is actually a bit TOO much to match up with a d60 front.

    My D60 measured 69" WMS-to-WMS, and my 14BFF with the 1.5" spacers measured 69.75" WMS-to-WMS....so I overshot the mark by about 3/8" per side. Not a big deal, but it adds extra stress on the bearings for no reason. If there was such a thing as a 1-1/8" spacer, that's what I'd look for.

    Doublecheck your own WMS measurements first....who knows, maybe I've got something else weird going on? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
