Thanks 95teal4x4

And right on! Thats my goal, to make it better than factory. Here in Ohio the salts tear up the new ones in 10 years or less, and after doing all this work Im happy to think my brake lines will never rust out and my fuel lines should out last me.

i actually replaced my brake lines with the copper nickel alloy lines a few months ago. Not a spec of rust on them and i put a lot of miles on my blazer. Im in jersey so we get some mild winters, they can be a little tough on cars, but not even half as tough as the winters up where you are.

on a side note, i saw you got a bunch of suspension parts. The frame pics you posted show a little metal cup in them by where you welded. There should be a rubber jounce bumper in that cup. Mine fell out many years ago. But i replaced mine probably about a year ago. It takes bumps so much better. If you havent gotten them yet, buy a set. You wont regret it. I think they were only like $20. You can find them on ebay or rockauto i think. Here is a picture of mine


Just a thought. Anyway, keep up the good work! Its coming along pretty good👍👍

I searched for the rear bump stops and could not find them anywhere. I am lucky enough to have my originals on the back go figure lol.



Also today I was changing my upper control arms out and more bumpers on those too.



pretty cool stuff

Lots of progress being made i see. Its looking good. That is one shiny underside! And new moog ball joints👍👍

I have had trouble finding the rear bump stops too. I feel like I remember gmpartsdirect.com having them for $40 a piece. But there was now way i was spending that much lol. I just look on all the blazers i see at the junkyard for a decent pair. Yours look great. Im jealous. Mine are so old that pieces come off in your hand when you touch them lol
