somebody tell me the difference b/n the front suspension of an s-10 v/s a blazer. I have an '01 blazer. while researching I discovered that drop spindles are NOT interchangeable. I realize that the blazer uses a sealed hub, whereas the s-10 does not(?)

This probably sounds stupid, but why not put a spindle from an s-10, with the proper bearings, ect onto my existing control arms?

input most appreciated.

They only changed the spindle in 98+ trucks. Before 98, the Blazer did use the same spindle as the s10. I would have to assume that a s10 spindle would bolt up, but then youd lose the larger disc and dual piston caliper that the blazer is good for, and thats no kind of trade off. Otherwise the control arms and such are the same between the trucks.
