Default Idler arm

I have a 2002 zr2 blazer. I've had to replace the idler arm couple of times since I've had it. Only had a year. Is there an upgrade or something I can do. I also want to lift it more to get bigger tires under it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I had the same issue with my 1990 silverado, seemed I was changing the cheap ones every 4 months. I bought a oversized moog one and it's been fine for the past 5-6 years. It's a bit bigger and a lot more expensive I think it was like $100 maybe they have something like that for the s10.

If you want the ultimate upgrade, install an idler arm for a 1-ton truck using this bracket:

I installed a Moog idler arm and so far it seems ok but I could see it failing if I were the type to go fast when off-roading.
