    You pretty have to have them custom built. They don't make a kit for the blazers.


    This one says it will work but Ive never seen anyone use it,

    A universal tri link is what I used. made a crossmember for the upper bars and cut the bars to length and then welded in the bungs. Of course a bag on bar would have mounted different.

    i would like to see a build of the cando setup but i have not seen one. with that link posted you would lose a good amount of floor by the looks of the upper bars. it looks to use the stock cross member and if that's the case i am not sure how big of wheels you can run, mine cross member there is long gone. my setup is a universal tri link we just made to fit.

    there is a build up or there was one on here with the cando link. I cant recall the guys name, but he recently popped back up a few weeks back. to me it just seems like a truck kit you have to make work. No matter what you have to remake the crossmember above the drive shaft and how the upper bars mount. IMO if that is the route your going just use an SD 3 link. There are a few guys on s10forum who have done the same thing with success. B/c using the cando link is going to give your screwing pinion angles throughout your range of motion.



    this guy had a thread with one on here.

    My theory is that if you can cut and weld up the floor in the blazer, you should be able to built a 4 link 4 it as well. A couple of days researching 4 link design and you should be able to make one that works just as well if not better than the cando link.

    true, if you have to remake a cross member to run a bolt in like setup that's kinda defeating the mind set of a bolt in kit lol.

    I was gonna do that can do link till I learned of the wheel issue. Making custom crossmbers and install took 3 days.
