I want to do the blazer disk brake conversion on my 1984 monte carlo ss its lowered 3 inches front and back with lowering springs and 20 inch irocs. I read the disk brakes would be placed facing back my question is will these work since its lowered or will it rub on the frame ?

I haven't got a answer yet but I went to the local junk yard and got a camaro 36mm sway bar to put in my monte. While I was there I saw a blazer and noticed the disk brakes were in the back position of the wheel instead of in front im guessing it was a 2w drive it seems like this is what might be what I need since my car is lowered im waiting to get a answer before pulling these parts.

You want the 2 wheel drive Blazer set up with the calipers to the rear. You will need to make a lower bracket to move the bottom attachment point of the shock absorbers inward to clear the calipers.

Any idea if it will hit the frame since the car is lowered 3 inches? Can I use the blazer brake lines ?

They shouldn't with the calipers mounted to the rear as they are on the Blazer. You will have to make a bracket to relocate the lower shock mounting point in towards the center to clear the calipers. I do not think you will be able to use the Blazer brake hard lines. I made new hard lines on mine to attache to the original brake hose.
