    Yes real quick then I'm out. That x-member bracket that goes to the x-member is a Truck part and I need a Blazer here to redesign it. I always tell customers that they need to just weld that part on. I'm very sorry if I did not mention that. Its a hard part to re-design when we don't ever get Blazers in the shop.
    For some reason all we have n this town are about 12 bodydropped Toyotas...lol Probably because Bob Grant and myself have built so many Toys locally, they keep getting handed down and around.
    Ok I'm otta here. I won't be back anytime soon unless I get summonsed.

    As for the rev ?. Let me set the record staraight, that I use both kits, and I don't feel one is better than the other if done correctly.
    The reason I choose to use the all reverse in most cases, is that you can use allot longer upper and lower bar, because the Gas tank is not an obstacle. The pinion angles always stay straight, the ride is great & the lift is great. We always make the lowers non-adjustable, for strength, and that contributes to great stability. I've had several customers that have ran our all fwd S10 kits for years, and come back and buy our all Reverse bolt-on S10 truck kit, because of a referal or just good word of mouth. Only feedback I have ever gotten has been 100% good. If I had one customer with our kits tell me that the All reverse that he bought from us, caught any issue, I'd be all over it. So my only question to any one against them, would be why in 7 years that I have been installing the kits, driving on the kits daily and I've sold well over 1500 reverse kits, why have I never had one complaint. I've only had complaints from out side people that have never had any personal experince, or maybe a couple that built there own and it went wrong some were. To be honest I just love building cool stuff and if I felt like there was any way I was putting a customer in danger, I'd never sell the kit.. I'm serious. Back in 2000, I was kinda worried something that I might have missed would come up one day. But now after 7 years of building the all reverse, I've had nothing but good feedback.
    So does anyone know of one CanDo customer with an all reverse thats ever had an issue? If so I'd like them to contact me so I can help them figure out what caused a problem. If not than there's no reason I need to explain anything else. I respect any one that don't wish to use it, I would only hope that the same ones would respect our customers that use our kit, especially if they are telling you they like everything about it.
    One thing I always insist on is that the customer set it up with shocks. Its true that our reverse kits can lift too high if your not running shocks, and possibly pull the driveshaft out. Thats not what I'd suggest. In fact its just not at all a good idea to run any vehicle 4-linked or not with no rear shocks. Thats my opinion. I don't want any drama, so if its ok with you all, I'll never mention reverse kits on here again. If anyone has a question about anything I'd rather get a personal e-mail.
    Thank you,

    Well its dinner time, and I'm hungry...lol
    I'm outta here.
    Ps I'm in the middle of a bag install on a F150, and a week behind schedule, so I won't be checking back any time soon.
    Kind Regards.

    That's an amazing sales pitch, and I'm glad you're doing well...sounds like you've been busy.


    But you never answered the question about Instant Center and Roll Center, and what your reverse kit does with it.

    How about I roll up North and he can do the install on my Blazer. Take pics and make the needed adjustments for a bolt on kit. I could use another sponsor.=)

    Just a little advice from some one that has designed four links for both blazers and S10 trucks, the four link from one, will almost fit on the other. The upper bar length is different. But if you are using the stock front spring perches to mount the lower bars, the geometry is not right. The S10 truck has the lower front spring mount under the frame, and the blazer has it next to the frame. That means the front mount is several inches higher on the blazer. And that several inches means alot. Also, notching the blazer crossmember for driveline clearance, then putting the S10 truck mount on top of it, will have the geometry all messed up. That mount will be way to high. And so will the instant center. Will it work ? Sure it will. It is hard to build something that just plain won't work. Is it gonna work well ? Nope. Wheel hop ? Possibly. That's why my blazer kit has the upper bar front mounts on both sides of the drive line. It allows crossmember notching, and keeps the bars where they should be.

    Will this 4 link work on the 4 door with enough cutting? If I am reading right, it is not that the kit won't fit the 4 door, it's that you have to cut and build more of the floor back after it is installed? My issue is finding a 4 link that will work with the truck. I am not worried about putting the floor back in it or anything else cosmetic. I have a friend who has made many 4-links from scratch and will build one for me but getting his and my schedule lined up is just not happening. If I went with this kit on a 4 door does anyone have any info on some of the hurdles I might hit?

    Thanx,

    I believe the biggest hurdle with the 4dr trucks is having to relocate the gas tank to the rear like on the 2dr trucks, with the side mounted stock tank theres no room for the 4 link to go.


    'Got another question for this kit, if i installed this kit but just had a bolt in 2.25 notch and didnt want to cut out my floor will it still work, as im not concerned with laying it out, i just want to ditch the leafs and would really like a bolt on kit.

    So has anybody gotten any recent exerience with one of these bolt on kits for the blazer?

    Im really wanting to order one for my bravada and ditch the leafs and AOL for something that will ride better and go lower, seems like a good deal for a bolt on deal.
