    How can I lengthen the wheelbase on my blazer without lengthening the frame? Can I drill new centerholes in the rear springs to move the axle rearward to help driveshaft angle. Has any one ever done this?

    Buy longer leaf springs from Deaver or National.....then relocate your shackles accordingly.

    The cheapist way to go if you are olnly looking to move them about an 1 1/2" is to call ORD and get Steve to make you a set of 1" zero rates with an offset pin location.
