Re: My Sas

Make sure you dont keep those lift blocks up front long. They can be very dangerous. Better off getting some lift springs

Re: My Sas

yuppers, my father wouldnt let me get a 4x4 for my first truck. so delt with 2wd for a summer and winter, and then stated my swap this summer. i just need to make the front drive shaft now. the rear one wasnt to bad but the front on is goig to be pretty long and finding the right u joints may be a challange but as long as its done by fall so i can get it muddy before the snow haha

Re: My Sas

Just get a high-steer kit.

You can shape it like a pretzel and it won't change anything. Regardless of how a drag-link is bent it pushes and pulls in a straight line from point A to point B, so nothing will change until you move the drag-link end down or the lower end up.

Re: My Sas

Hey Kucharski,

I am looking to do similiar to my truck. Can you get me some pics of your front hanger set up as well as your rear shackle points. Also i would like to see your Lower A-arm/engine cross member after the swap.

Thanks !!

Re: My Sas

For the steering just get the JB4x4 crossover steering bracket. To get more info look up my "D30 Crossover Steering Write Up" You won't be disappointed.

Re: My Sas

hey did you ever fix those front spring perches. If not they are going to give you a lot of axle wrap and youll be breaking a lot of driveshafts.

Re: My Sas

exactly the taller perch is going to put a lot more pressure on the leafs when power is applied. spring wrap breaks a lot of parts. just saying. Cut them down and get taller springs if you need to.

Re: My Sas

You HAVE to get new front perches if you want that JB 4x4 bracket to work. they're too tall for the drag link to clear the springs.
Plus when you get smaller perches you can bring down the size of the rear block and bring down the risk of rear axle wrap as well

Just go onto Summit Racing and get axle perches for a 2.5" diameter tube. They're relatively cheap AND once the perches are on there you can move them a hole forward/back from center to get the axle RIGHT where you want it.

Re: My Sas

Good to know it hasn't contacted it. I would be interested to see what it does underload. I am looking to SAS my 2wd 87 next year or so. I was hoping i didnt have to cut the cross member. I would like to keep mine low like yours.

Re: My Sas

I will be working on a 2wd Blazer SAS here soon and I am interested to see how you set up your transfer case shift linkage. I do not want to have a open hole in the floor for the shifter. I am looking for something that looks factory but am unsure what to do just yet.
