Up front, the stock leaf springs have been replaced with a cutting edge four-link coilover suspension. The custom suspension includes a pair of King 14-inch-travel remote-reservoir coilover shocks, four 1.75-inch-diameter chromoly control arms with 1.25-inch spherical rod ends, custom mounts and the latest cool thing to hit the market, King hydraulic bumpstops. The result is a long-travel suspension that really soaks up brutal terrain whether dune running or trail riding. The disc-braked Dana 60 front axle has been modernized with a TeraFlex T-Locker, while axle beef consists of ORU 35-spline axleshafts. The Blazer's steering system features ORU's crossover steering kit and hydraulic ram assist, and this helps turn the big 40x13.5 Pro Comp Xterrain tires on 20x10 Pro Comp 1059s.
