here are a few pics of my labors yesterday.... Thanks to Blazinzuk for his assistance with the U-Bolts! Here is a pic of the stock front spring hanger Stock spring length New spring length.. Comparison of the springs.. I used a rear spring out of a 1976 3/4 ton chevy van. The only difference between the van and blazer rear springs is a bigger overload and the van springs are only 2 1/8" wide. Grinding away at the rivets on the front spring hanger...Torch was out of Oxy! New location for the front spring hanger..Still need to weld it on. Had to do a quick trim to get the tire back on... it moved the front axle 4" forward.. I like the way it looks! Here it is sitting level... Raised 4" front and rear. With the tires, it has about 8" lift over a stock rig on stock tires. I have lots more pics of the whole process and will be posting a write-up on Sandman's site, www.planet4x4.net when I get it all hammered out.
