    Front end rebuild kits?


    Support FSC and see no ads! - Click Here
    I'm getting ready to replace my ball joints in a couple weeks and was wondering if anyone makes/sells a front end rebuild kit for a 1993 K1500 Blazer? I imagine it is the same as the K1500 trucks.

    Figured while I was in there that i'd replace alot of other stuff to save me from digging back in there at a later date. Does anyone make/sell a kit? Moog? Spicer? I can't find anything...

    Nah no kits that I know of. I just go to the parts store and ask for the parts. Other than the ball joints themselves there aren't really any other parts that go into it. They come with all the bolts/pins you need too. You'll need a 36mm socket, and a pickle fork/ball joint separator, and a big f***ing hammer to get it done though, along with noraml hand tools

    Try www.p-s-t.com. They sell a polyvinyl graphite rebuilding kit for most vehicles. It will include all of the bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, tie rod adjusting sleeves, and end links to rebuild your front end. I just rebuilt my front end with their kit last year.

    I looked at their site and it seems that they do not include the lower ball joints. Is there a reason why?

    I don't know. Mine came with both upper and lower ball joints, but then again it's a truck and not a Blazer.
