    YEEEEHHAAAAAA!!!! IT\'S ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Blazer is back on it's tires and driveable.....YEESSS!! Worked on it till about 9:30 tonight. Not completly done yet, still gotta bleed the breaks, hook up parking brake cables, and because the shock mounts on the housing I bought are slightly different than my old ones, I'm gonna have to relocate them. No big deal. But I got to drive it!!! YAY!! Just up and down the road in front of the house though. I had a set of springs with an add a leaf that I stuck in this time.....No more saggy butt syndrome. If anything, it's just a tit bit taller in the back now. Waaaay better!

    Don't need one. I'll just make one. Or cut off the ones on it now with the plasma cutter and reuse them. I think its a good thing that I have to do this because the add a leafs made it quite a bit taller. The shocks are gonna bottom at full flex as it is now. Since I have to relocate them anyways, I'll kill 2 birds with 1 stone...Mount them alittle higher, and move them over a bit. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Congrats!! Make sure you fill it with gear lube! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif Your axle housing probalby came from a 2wd truck with the shock mounts that hang lower. Had the same problem on my 14 bolt. I just beat the $[censored] outta them to get it to fit for now. I'll probably go with 55Willy's mounts, they are nice.
