1972 Blazer 4x4 to 2WD Conversion

I am in the process of converting a 1972 Blazer 4x4 to a 2wd. My question I have is related to the rear suspension regarding the shock cross member. Does anyone sell this cross member along with the trailing arm cross member. As far as I know, the c10 pickup shock cross member made by CPP will not work on a 1972 blazer frame, also I do not think the trailing arm cross member from a c10 will fit the blazer frame either....Any direction or advice would be great. Thanks.

Wasted Income did a 2wd conversion using Porterbuilt stuff. Project Family Truckster is his build thread. If you don't have the money to go that route try a axle flip kit by Belltech, it's a six inch drop. I was use going that on my 74 k5 but decided to stay 4wd.

Starting the process....4x4 to 2wd conversion on my 1972 blazer.

Removing the leaf springs and clean up the frame.

Re: 1972 Blazer 4x4 to 2WD Conversion

Any updates? I bought a 70 k5 4x4 and I'm about to start a 2wd conversion. I bought a 2wd front frame section and transmission cross member. I know I will need to drill new holes for the front cross member and plan on doing a flip kit for the rear end. Did you run into any snags?
