Default 99 blazer build

i've been building a 99 Blazer for a couple months now so far have rebuilt transmission, shift kit, torque convertor,silver painted calipers, new alt,serp belt, idler pulley, front wheel hubs, 2.5" rough country lift, new shocks,al tie rods and other steering components, lower ball joints,10" and 13" electric cooling fans, airraid throttle body spacer, k&n air filter, new u joints, upgraded the ohc to the one with the trip computer,installed heated leather seats,blue led interior lights,5" off road lights, still have a ton of parts to go on yet but im dealing with the issues left from a local shop installing my lift and screwed up more than they fixed and stole what they didnt fix then lied about it all but short end of it is now im needing new cv axels in it and i've been looking at all the part numbers to compare the zr2 axels and the base axels and surrounding parts to see if it would be a better idea to go with the longer zr2 axels or if they dont fit but the lift kit i have goes for both models and the only difference i can see is the upper control arms have different part numbers along with the axels so i would assume that the new upper control arms from the kit replace both models than i should be able to use the zr2 model axels right?

No the Z axles still won't fit even with the RC lift they are still to long so just stick with what you got. Get some pics up too!!

another question about the lift. the steering isn't supposed to be hitting the front diff everytime you turn from sit to side is it. most likely not but yet one more lovely thing i was left to deal with.lol
