check out Hellwig's G-body offering.....last time I looked it wasn't much different in pricing and has adjustments in both the bar and mounting points....

the crossmember on my GP had holes in the lip that were in the perfect location. I found this picture on the web but some guys said those holes were not in their G body

I also noticed that my cross member wasn't pre-drilled. It looks like an awkward area to be able to position a drill. I'll have to look again when I'm under there.

Is there really a difference between the rear bars for a 2-dr or 4-dr Blazer, and/or 2wd or 4wd? This way when I'm out junkyarding I know what to pull. Also, would the Blazer bar be a better choice compared to the F-body bar? I could see the F-body bar probably being thicker, or heavier.

2dr blazer points backwards and sits on the top of the axle, putting it on a G body moves it under the diff and points forward. A 4dr has the fuel tank in the spot behind the axle and the swaybar sits in a spot that doesn't work on a G body.

A 3rd gen is good and fits BUT you have to heat and bend the ends inward since they flare out a few inches at the ends.

Stock blazer 2dr bar is 1" diameter.

You have to be careful in choosing a rear bar. A rear bar that is too strong can upset the handling of your car. The reason I tracked down the GTA rear bar is that I had the GTA bar up front so the two were designed to work together.

What is the benefit of this style bar over the stock GBody bar?

Doesn't connect the rear arms together?

Think it's to take the stress off the lower arms & give the ends a more solid point to mount to. For the DD's that just cruise it shouldn't make a difference as much going with either type. But for the guys who wants to make it ride on rails it might be more helpful than the stock type.
