    I think I read the drop spindles will widen the track (distance between front wheels) a little.

    The G-body brake hoses are the same length as the Blazer hoses, only if you decide to use the Blazer hoses, it requires an adapter due to the Blazer fittings using a different thread.. G-body hoses, no adapter needed. Very straight forward swap.

    Go with the Russell braided stainless set for G body.

    You will also need to do some trimming on the upper a-arms. Go on belltech's site and follow the directions with pictures. You will break the upper arm mounting bolts if this step is skipped. And they also widden the track 3/8" - 1/2" which does not sound like alot but will put tires closer to the fender lips

    This^^^
    Put it lock to lock, and check clearance on the calipers and bolts.
    Also, I recommend the Moog 5662 springs with the drop spindles.
