Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

each seat was about $40.00 (each bucket, and the rear bench) and the brackets were 2.00 a piece. so i paid like $150. here's a better pic of the bracket.

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

those are the same ones that I have for my blazer. I bought my seat from jkade and he cut the four brackets out of the floor for me. Looking forward to seeing what they look like in yours.

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

If you go with the 4 link you can get it to go lower b/c you don't have the frame hitting the trailing arms. It isn't any more difficult. I just converted my 4x4 to a 2wd recently. Check out the pics of the 4 link and a pic of my 4x4 to 2x4 blazer.

DID YOU JUST REUSE THE 4X4 SPRING MOUNTS ON THE OUTER LINKS?

that looks much harder to do than installing the factory trailing arms? is that a kit already made or is it custom? also i dont think im going to go that low.. yours looks good! a lower profile tire might look even better!!! i already got the trailing arms (thanks fleetsidepaul!), im still looking for my crossmember..

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

today i pretty much got my front bucket seats mounted. i still need to fill-n'-drill weld the nut brackets to the bottom of the floor. i had to customize the floor a little to make them work. i had to flatten parts of the dip in the floor pan where the two inner bolts go (on both sides), by cuting a small section and hammering it straight then welding it back together. then i drilled my holes.

Yea if you aren't c-notching the frame it would be easier. The triangulated 4-link is a kit from suicide doors and the crossmember is custom. Suidide doors also has a universal c-notch kit. The outer bars of the 4-link attatch to the stock 4x4 spring mounts. I'm not into rubber band tires I like some rubber. Better ride and better looks. (Just my opinion)

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

finally got my seats mounted! whew! took forever, but they came out goood! i used the same brackets that go with the seats, once again my chisel and hammer were a big part here in getting these from the pick a part. i drilled holes and filled them with weld to hold them in place. just like the factory.

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

Seats look good. Are you gonna remove the headrests?

Here's a few pics of what I did for the fuel filler on my pickup. The same concept will work for your Blazer. I just used the late model filler and covered it all inside the bed with a Blazer filler cover. To get the neck under the bed, I cut off the stock bend and welded on a piece of pre-bent exhaust tubing from the parts store. Used fuel filler hose to connect to the tank- works like a charm...

thanks! im going to keep the headrests for when the top is on, but take them off whenever the top comes off!


Thanks everyone for the gas filler neck pics, the did help! i wanted to make something 100% water proof to the interior. im really happy with the way it turned out. it took about three full work days thinking plus fabricating. the outside is still not fully welded and the back only has a few tack welds, but i am going to fully weld it still!

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

That is one very clean and well thought out mod for the rear seat mounts. Depending on how big my rear notch ends up being I might go the same rout.

Once it's finished, it will look almost factory. Good job!

Re: my 1970 blazer build=4wd to 2wd

dash upgrade!




got the rockers welded up finally. and i used all new body mounts to align everything (doors mostly) before i separate the frame from the body, nothing is perfect yet but PRETTY DARN CLOSE! when it goes back together AGAIN i will make sure everything is PERFECT! the driver door looks like a reproduction but it just covered in overspray im using 100 percent gm parts

Really coming together nicely. Not sure if you mentioned it before, what color will it be?
