My parents bought it from my moms brother back in 2004-2005. We tryed to sell it a few times between 08 and 09, we had a few people look it it but nothing serious. When I had gotten a job in 11, I became serious about trying to buy a vehicle. I was planning on buying a S10/Sonoma, but they were either out of my price range, High Miles, Serious repairs Involved, Rust buckets or Everything involved. I never gave it thought about buying the Trailblazer, untill I searched Trailblazer forums and came across Trailvoy and I Saw all the sweet stuff you can do to a Trailblazer.

Saturday May 21st

Well Staurday turned out to be a really nice day with temps in the high 80s.

The only problem we ran into was the End Link seized up after moving about half way off. So we were looking at it and figured out how to get the axle down enough to slide in the spacer without having to mess with the End Links. Took us 2 3/4 to 3 1/2 hours from start to finish thats including a trip to Ace to get some more washers. We tried to tighten the End Link up and it still didn't move, we hit it with PB Blaster and a Propane Torch and still didn't move. We ended up rounding the allan key so that bolt aint comeing off unless we hack it off. Why GM why :hissyfit:

So now when I turn right the body rolls on the left side then sets back. Only thing though is I hear a slight rattling sound(like a lose bolt) from the left rear. I think its the End link cause thats the only lose thing back there.

I will say this It RIDES soooo much better.

The front will be installed soon.

i was wondering how much you paid for the wheel spacers, and where did you get them and if they are 6x5 or are they an upgrade from 6x5 to 6x5.5?:undecided:
