    I know I know this but, just to make 1000% sure. If I change the gears in the rear axle, I have to change the ones in the front axle as well, right? I spent 2 years rebuilding this thing and read everything I could about a Blazer ( and think i know it all, hehe) but I just don't feel like spending twice the cash on these gears. I know gears don't cost much but with the money I spent rebuilding this thing already, my wife will kill me if I spend another dime in this thing. She doesnt know about the rims, nerf bars, and other doo-dads i plan on adding soon.

    no you dont all you need to do is change the rear gears to say 4:10 and run 35's and make the front 3:73's and run 33's in front /forums/images/icons/smile.gif so yes unless you run differant size tires front and rear yes you need to change both front and rear or never put it in 4wheel drive
