    Sounds like you have what you'll need. Honestly tho, if you've got the cash to spend, go ahead and do ball joints and tie rod ends while you're in there with it apart. It'll save you alot of headache later. Mines down 4/5 on 22's, they should fit fine.

    I love my truck. The handling is so so with 22's and a torsion bar drop, I get a little scrub on the tires at full lock, but otherwise it handles about as close to a race car as you can get with a Blazer lol. I've got a couple degrees of negative camber on alignment, but its no huge issue. I'm planning to stock floor and bag it over the summer so....

    Yeah, I've got looooads of pics, I'll post some soon as I'm not on mobile. Man, as far as cars here, we've got A LOT of Honda kids, that's pretty much the extent of it. We've got a chapter of Freaks of Nature, but they don't come out a lot. I've got a couple buddies with bagged and bodied minis, mostly dimes and a few Nissans. Few lowriders, few dudes with giant rims on POS cars, nothing to really brag about tho.
