    I've seperated mine 4 times without wrecking the balljoint boots. I use the largest fork and make sure it stays centered.

    where do ya'll recommend placing the jack stands in the rear? in front of the tire on the frame (near mid of blazer)

    im having trouble deciding what should be placed on jack stands and what just needs to be "jacked" with a floor jack...

    and do i even need to take apart the leaf on either side? or just raise the rear axle?

    lol i need pictures..

    once i got the entire rear on jack stands.. can i raise the axle by jacking up underneath the shackles? im gettin really confused the more i think about how to get this accomplished....

    is it safe to jack up the differential directly in the middle of the axle??

    and im not sure how high up im needing to raise it for a 3" block..

    anybody help me out?

    i would put jackstands on both sides of the rear axle to keep it in place.

    Remove the ubolts.

    lift each side of the axle up with your hands, place the block in

    repeat for other side

    tighten ubolts.
