    The body looks good. Hopefully the suspension is done just as well.

    I can vouch for the suspension for the simple fact that the previous owner didn't do it. It was "redone" at HOS (House of Sparks). Same guy that did my 4dr (6link) & 2dr (4link) blazers. Hopefully now that it's sold the previous owner can now finish paying his bill with HOS, lol. The original suspension was done at Shop87 in Bradenton, but some things were redone due to having other things in mind for the blazer (bigger wheels, etc). Hopefully now it'll get finished.

    Good to know about the work done. He said it wasnt done right when he got it so he had a shop redo it correctly. It looks like its built well now

    Yet it was, and he bought it from Jon (epicenter) on here. Jon is a great guy, and that's when Shop87 did it for him. I don't know about it not being done right the first time, but I do know that he wanted to lay out on bigger wheels than it was set up for, and there were a few other things. So they just redid it again.

    Yes this blazer has a real nice start going with the motor, wiring, bodydrop, and suspension all done. It shouldn't be too hard to get it on the road. If I wasn't knee deep in my blazer build, I would have picked it up.

    Not that it wasnt done right...it was rushed and sat for a LONG time so things were rusted,half done and just not what I was trying to achieve. The link suspension was not what I was wanting after some talking with HOS. It is setup to lay out on 22's with a 255/30 tire. it WILL push on the hood a little even after cutting the skin out of the hood but it is do able. My most current plans were to do 20s for awhile so I can ride real low but after some life events I was forced to sell. I completely lost interest in the truck and hope to see it finished. Also just to add the truck wasnt exactly done by shop87 it was a side project it wasnt a SHOP87 build exactly.

    New pics added. I got the fuel line ran. The air lines are strapped to the frame properly. Got the engine running but only for a few seconds till I get the pulley assembly done and the hydroboost brakes completely figured out. Trans Am wheels are temp till I find 22s I like
