Default Big brake upgrade for the Blazer.

You won't find this in any store. New 13" rear disc brakes from a '03 Suburban modified to fit the original 12 bolt from the Blazer. Cut the original brackets off, plasma cut and machined new ones, and rewelded in the correct orientation. Machined the centers out of the rotors to accept the old style axles, and bolted them up. I really like the intergal e-brake set up on this. It should stop real good once I get the front figured out and hydroboost installed.

Frame an suspension is powdercoated black, awaiting the rubber to assemble it all. 400 hp LT-1 built and ready to install, 700r4 in a hundred pieces awaiting parts, body I have not touched yet. This is a 4wd so it is getting lifted instead of lowered. It will outhandle, out brake, out accelrate the original, so I guess you could call it Pro-Touring. Now I have done it, I started the age old arguement again.
