    questions for baggin a 1st gen

    Couple questions. Starting to research what I need to bag my 86 2wd. I was wondering for the rear, is it more reasonable to buy a link kit, or build one? I have 18's 245/45 tires. Can I keep the rear seat in the stock location?

    Pics would be great of some ideas. I want to build a simple, reasonablly priced, setup that will be good for daily driving. And something that will not take me 3 weeks to put in, since its my daily.

    these are the classic Blazer questions
    Do the compressor, valves, line runs and stuff like that first, then the front, the rear might take a tad longer and more research. Keeping the seat can be a hard thing to do

    Forklift is right...if you're planning on trying to keep it as a daily, and do it in stages, do all your air managment stuff first, then knock out the front. The rear is a pain, and if it's your first bag job, will definately take longer than you think..lol. Keeping the back seat is do-able with that tire size, it will just take some work.

    Nobody makes a link kit for the blazers any more, so that's pretty much all on you. I can point you in the right direction, I've got a couple under my collar.


    Just be prepared for it to take a little longer than you expect...and make sure you have a ride to work when you start doing the rear :)

    woo, pretty excited that i got one of the last IAS weld ons lol. But to help keep the rear seat your going to want to stay away from the bolt on diff brackets. They come up way high into the cargo area. There are a good bit of build threads on s10forum with blazers. Most are second gens but the general idea is the same.

    Has anyone every tried the bolt on 4 link from candospecialties.com? Ive had a buddy who used one of there bolt on 4 links from his s10 and he liked it. I talked to Steve from cando and he sent me pics of it installed and it looked like its pretty nice, im thinking about using that for my 4 link but i just wanted to get some opinons about it first. Its only 600, thats not too much more then a SD universal.

    Yeah, def would like more pics of that setup. I wasn't talking about bolt-on or weld-on kits specific for a Blazer. I was talking about the basic 4 link kits that just about every advertiser in Mini-Truckin.

    Oh, and I will have another vehicle for a daily when I start this. Trying to buy a Ford Bronco right now off a guy for 400. Seems to be my favorite price cause my Blazer was 400, and I have bought 2 other cars since and paid that. Sold all cept the blazer for about 1000 though;)
