If you converted it to two wheel drive and I take it that you put two wheel drive spindles on it! If not either way you can get drop spindles from aim industries or bell tech!! Aim's website is airbagit.com and there's are 107 bucks for both front spindles! Bell tech's are more expensive like almost 300!! I currently have aim spindles on mine and they work fine no problems and I have the front of my blaze bagged!!!

ok let me get this right i can put spindles on my 4wd uper and lower control arms? i just want to make sure before i order a set. se i was told i could from a shop down the road.

now if this is right can i use my ball joints or do i have to get 2wd spindle ball joints? and will my tie rods work with the spindles? and also the lower ball joint posision is difrent, meaning on the 4wd the lower joint points down and the 2wd ball joint points up. do i have to convert my lower ball joint to point up?
sorry for all the qwestions but just trying to get this right.

thanks very much..

how did you make your truck 2wd?

2wd drop spindles will not bolt up to 4wd control arms

I converted mine over to s-10 pick up to be able to use the drop spindles since they don't make drop spindles for the sealed bearing hubs ours happen to come with!! One thing to keep in mind when swapping over you will lose the blazer brakes and the soft line will need to be tightened a good deal (just don't break it) so there is no leaks. Mine leaked for a little bit till I tightened it a little bit more and now no more leaks at all!!

I will take pictures of my conversion and update my how to bag a 2wd blazer thread i started a while back, so that it will have pictures to show what I was discussing in the thread!!
