Post blazer frames

I have a 72 blazer that I am modifing, it is a 4x4, but i have a stock 2wd frame I'm putting the body on, what i need to know is if the stock 4x4 rear leaf springs will mount to the 2wd frame.
Thanks for any info.

Just measure from eyelet to eyelet on the leaf spring and spring mounts on the frame and you should get your answer. But, if the springs came off a 4x4 from the same year truck. They is a pretty good chance that they wil work just fine. Chevy back than kept everything simple unlike there trucks today. Hope this helps.. Rock on people!!!

They will as long as the frame rails- where the hangers are- are 34" wide on outside.
but we all already knwo that it will be.

it probably won't work since a 2wd blazer has coils with trailing arms in the back of it. but you could move your spring hangers and everything else to the new 2wd chassis. but what i would do is just run the stock rear trailing arms. i have just finished up on a blazer 4wd to 2wd swap so email me if you have questions

If you want rear leafs, it may be easier to move the front 2wd crossmember to the 4x4 frame. It's nearly a bolt up and you can give me the 2wd frame since I want trailing arms! LOL.

either way, it will work, can put leaves on 2wd frame or put 2wd cradle under 4x4 frame.
Depends on how much work you wish to do.
Just remember that you cant put coils and arms on a true 4x4 or longhorn frame

good luck
