In December i picked up a 2002 Xtreme blazer for 3,000. 151,000 miles with a 2/3 drop runs excellent but the ride is a bit rough. Its not the nicest but I needed a daily bad so i picked it up. Told the girlfriend i would just slap the Coys on it and be done with it. We all know how that works out
So now I'm going to rebuild the front suspension and steering, its getting a new drop with coilovers, c5 front brakes, new backing plates for the rearend because they were shot, and probably a few other things. Started the tear down Wednesday night, I sand blasted and cleaned up some stuff yesterday. I gotta work today but tomorrow I'm going to start putting everything back together. I have to have it done by Tuesday to get aligned since its my daily so this will probably move pretty quick.
Heres some pictures and quick history of the blazer.
The day I picked it up.
Swapped coys on and got rid of the tacky headlights etc
Finally got it cleaned
Installed my red leather seats I had sitting around
Picked up a front filler plate on the cheap for a factory GM
Then it got hit at work
But still drove it through all the snow we got this winter
Finally the suspension goodness
Found some scary stuff, el cheapo blocks with a missing pin
Missing/Broke bolt on the bearing
buh bye suspension
Ill get some more pics tonight and tomorrow when we really get some work done.
