Plus I broke 2 front driveshafts, 1 rear axle, 1 front diff, and all the steering slop that I replaced with the lifetime stuff too only to have it loosen up. I absolutely love the simplicity and strengh of the solid axle now. I was daily driving it for the last year and a half and it was wonderful to me. The only bad thing is the mileage (which is why I'm driving a car now )
Yeah i wish i would have gone with the sfa. At the time though there wasnt really a kit for it and being 18 without a lot of experience working on cars and no welding experience i decided to keep the ifs. Alos to help you millage you can get your pcm tuned to help that. I sent my pcm in to pcmforless and had them make some changes. I now get 15mpg in the city and roughly 20 on the highway. Thats with my 33s and 3.73 gears. No, its not great but just as good if not better than a stock blazer. Im hoping the 350 swap this winter will make it even better.
