    Calipers are garunteed to hit. That is why belltech sends the directions with the spindles new for trimming the arms. Blazer spindles are not the same as regular g body spindles.

    Hmmmm, makes me wonder about aftermarket A arms?? I have BMR tubular uppers, but stock lowers with new bushings.

    tubular uppers have more clearance then the stock a-arms. stock a-arms have the lip that runs around the outside edge that the tubulars dont have.the lip on the back side of the arm and around the snout of the ball joint area need to be trimmed back as to not not contact the spindle. i broke 2 sets of upper a -arm mounting bolts on my blazer because the shop that installed mine did not trim the arms during installation. once trimmed never had an issue.
