Was searching the salvage yards on the net for the 2wheel drive blazer spindles/brakes. I've come across the following question tho that I need some help answering. Is it a 4x2 option ZR2 or Z85 or Z87?

Any of the 98-05 2 wheel drive Blazer or Jimmy's will have them. It was standard and not an option

Don’t forget to get the brackets on the frame for the brake lines too!

Also consider Oldsmobile Bravada vehicles for the spindles and corresponding parts. Also make sure it's a 2WD version.

Thank you. It was getting confusing going to these sites wondering what they were talking about.

Thanks. Is that an after market brake line in the pic? If so who makes it?
Yup this is a Russell steel braided brake line. Came in kit with both front soft lines and the rear soft line. My original lines were awful so this was a must when upgrading. Russell part number RUS-692100.


YMMV then, it appears some have had success with the stock one and some haven’t. I’ve heard others say the stock bracket worked too. I tried it with the stock and found that it didn’t put the brake line in a good spot without risk of it binding or getting smashed. Perhaps it’s because I have AM brake lines.
