4. Here's the front suspension, with the BDS components installed. Stock A-arms are retained (although it's likely we'll replace them later in our chase for improved wheel travel), and brackets are used to modify the mounting points of pretty much everything (including the front differential), so the Blazer is held up higher. We liked the brushed-metal finish of the provided BDS shocks-they're a lot more aesthetically appealing than most of the lift-kit-basic shocks we've seen provided from some other suspension companies.
