So S10 blazer drop spindles are what I would need. Definitely going to look into that
you will want to google search belltech 2102. belltech is the only company manufacturing the 98 and up drop spindle. will add approx 3/8 per side of track width. even as much as a 1/2 . cheapest online i see right now is 309 bucks. or try to search s10 pages for used

Does anyone here have a photo of how to orient the G body brake hose on the Blazer caliper? I replaced all of my brake lines last year, and I went with the Russell braided brake hoses. The Russell hose has a slight bend at the end by the caliper. When I install the G body Russell hose on the Blazer caliper, then turn the steering towards the hose, it contacts the frame near the bracket for the hose. Does the hose point upwards or downwards when its positioned properly? I'm wondering if I've got the brake hose positioned correctly on the caliper. Thanks in advance.

I’ve got mine attaching the calipers at about a 45 deg downward angle from being parallel to ground if that makes sense. Had a helluva time getting my copper compression washers to seal though. Finally ended up installing some Earl’s Stat-O-Seal crush washers. Fingers crossed ( haven’t bled the brakes yet)

Oh forgot to mention I had to use the factory Regal (G Body) brake hose mounting brackets as the straight brake hose support bracket from the Blazer allowed wheel / tire contact at full steering lock

Thanks 1KWIKSIX. I appreciate your help. I wondered about using the Blazer hose & bracket, but thought it might make for problems.

Thanks for the detailed writeup. I'm to the point in life I like to know as much as possible before tackling a project. Thanks again.

I installed the Blazer fronts and SSBC rears, what should I use for a master cylinder? The stock one isn't cutting it.

Part number? Did you use this with the stock booster?
