If that's the case, you need to update your signature, can't wait for more progress pics.

Looks great, I love the wheels on there. Did the backspace work out like you wanted?

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Looks Good Craig! I'm curious about the pic below... is that bracket sandwiched between the trailing arm and the axle saddle?

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Yes, it's a PB bracket made with the shock mount and tracbar mount
all in one with 3 adjustments. It slides over PB custom arms so it will
eliminate the spacer on the other side like the 2 piece ECE stuff.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Those wheels look familiar. Did you leave another blazer naked without shoes?

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Hey Craig,...
Looks amazing!

Just curious,... are the rear shocks on upside down or do they have to be mounted that way to work with the PB arms?
I really want a set of those trailing arms.

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"

Dunno about witch side is up on the shocks, I mounted them
like the front so they all could be wrong I figured it would
keep dust from settling on the top of the shafts when stored.

I don't think I have ever seen Craig with a jacket on. Now a project going together, what next Craig in long pants?

Looking great Luv. The wheels look great on it too.
