yeah it should fit. its from a 2wd s10 pick up, but its going into a 2wd blazer. it should be fine. you should measure it just to make sure. you will want to measure how far the spring perches are from the center and from wheel mounting point to wheel mounting point. then, if i were buying it, i would pull the cover off before installing it and changed the fluid and inspect the gears.

It will be missing the sway bar mounts. Blazers have a rear sway bar, pick-ups don't.

It will fit just fine, but it won't have the rubber bump stop cups on the spring perches. Not the end of the world unless you're overloading your Blazer, but just something to know. The sway bars mount using a U-bolt and in my experience they are not welded to the axle, so you should be able to transfer the mounts from the old axle to the new axle.

Good to know, I've never bothered looking how it was attached. I just knew that the pick-ups don't have them.
