im running 12 inch. i have weld-on blocks for the rear, but for some reason the springs make my rear pinion angle face down, so i ordered some ORD shackles for it to correct the angle and do away with the blocks. it sucks i have to cut the fenders, but i dont want to make it any higher

Send it my way! I have no problem cutting up a perfect K5. The first cut is the hardest. We had to drink a few before we could cut this dentless K5 up!



Keep the pics rolling. Your blazer is coming along nicely.

I got my ORD shackle flip installed today. I need some shorter u-bolts to complete it. I had to drop the tank to access the bolts. also had to notch the brakets to fit around the reciever hitch
