Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

Woah that first pic of the blue jimmy is with only a 2" bodylift and it fit 32's?

Are jimmys different stock height cuz 2" should not fit 32's from my understanding with the trucks.

Both look awesome btw

yea it's a good thing too, because lift spindles won't work on a 98-+ Blazers unless you change all these parts, thanks to brake upgrade

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

First pic of blue blazer looks great. IMO looks funny with the front end up in the air.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

Remember, weight in rear is higher than s10 for Blazer, which make the front lift more higher. They are exactly same coils.

Looks great nonetheless!

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

How bad does a lifted 2wd 2 door handle? Mine is pretty flighty at stock height. I keep debating if i want to lift it but if it handles horribly I'll stick to my plans to lower it.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

it will be fine man. with the lift spindles it makes your axle width about 5 inches wider so that adds alot of stability then get 1.5 inch spacers for the rear and you'll have alot wider stance to make up for the tippyness.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

They don't make 98+ Blazer lift spindles. You have to convert your brakes and junk to the crap single piston S10 stuff to make it work. Max suspension lift on a 2wd Blazer would be 3" lift springs.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

I know you CAN but why would I spend all that money for decreased brake performance? With a lift and bigger tires I'd want at least what I have now.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

It's gotta perform, not just look. Roads I drive to work are really curvy and I'd rather have handling anyways. I need a posi if I were even to think about taking the two tracks through state land I used to go through with my 4x4.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

I've been trying to find someone else that did the lift spindle conversion from a pickup like I did. Here's some pics. I did the 3.5" Fabtech lift spindle and 3'' fabtech lift coils. All new fabtech shocks,longer sway bar links, and fabtech axle flip kit and steel braided brake lines. Ended up getting 6.5" of lift and then I added a 2'' PA body lift. The side frame height is at 23 inches! I have 33X12.5X15 ProComp m/t tires with 2'' 15X8 backspaced Bart wheels. Looking into getting 35'' tires.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

Yah I measured it out for room I have and it is plenty for 35''s. I'm going to have to put some 410 gears in though. I noticed people were talking about the brakes and how its downgrading them. I see how the single piston isnt as good but I could honestly not notice a thing. With the 35''s I plan on upgrading the brakes because it will deffinitely need it then with them big tires haha. Thanks for the comments and new to the site welcome

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

SSBC has dual piston upgrades for the S10. Gas mileage would kill me with that much of a lift and big tires. It's bad enough stock!

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

Sweet i'll check it out. You know I thought the same at first about the mpg. I'm actually getting 15 around town and about 18-19 on the interstate. I was expecting like 12mpg but I was wrong. I've calculated the mpg about 4 times and its accurate

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

Man that blazer looks awesome! I'd keep 33's on it myself, they are plenty big enough to look good and have some clearance from the body. 35's look kinda funny on these trucks unless they are really lifted and straight axled.

All the S10 front brake components- calipers, rotors, bearings, grease seals, washers, nuts, cotter keys. Basically, everything between the ball joints.

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

sorry guess my question is, do I get the brakes for a 2003 s10 to fit my 2003 blazer or are most interchangeable?

Re: Pics!! 2wd lifted blazer

You don't have to get 2003 specifically. If you're buying new you can order for a 2003, but I believe everything from 98+ is the same, maybe even 94+. Hell, maybe even ALL S10 front brakes are interchangeable, but I don't know for sure. Either way, you have a wide range of years that for sure that will interchange. Just know that you are downgrading your brakes. Some say they don't notice a difference. But I don't see how you couldn't, especially on a 4-door.
