Default 1997 4.3 Blazer build. Street/Strip

Finally got around to getting a blazer to mess around with, mainly building it for street/strip so im not going to be going to crazy with it.
Mods when i bought it:
-4.10 Richmond gears on stock diff
-Lowered (not sure how much, the guy before me cut the springs)
-Cold air intake
-IROC Z Rims and wider tires
-New 4L60E trans & Trans go shift kit
minor tune for the tires and slight more air, also hardened the shifts some more
Now the fun part, my build:
-Fixing the entire suspension setup (Still not sure what im going to be using, suggestions welcome)
-Ditching all not needed weight, (A/C, P/S, Spare tire)
-JBA shorties & gibson exhaust
-Wynjammer supercharger on 10lbs
-Nitrous Express wet kit. 125 shot single stage
-To finish it off Mickey thompson cheater slicks

Guessing the build is going to be going on until next spring, ill be sure to update every step of my progress. Ill post pics of the car right after i bought it too

If you have a photobucket account you just copy the direct link and paste it into the dialog box that appears when you click this button. If you are using on site hosting it can be problematic.

You can read through this post for a more in depth explanation.
