Sweet, glad you found that loose pitman arm ;) Let me know if you need a hand.

The 1 ton booster and MC was one of the best upgrades I've done in a long ass time, one of those "why didnt I do this sooner!?" moments. I hope you're as pleased as I was. :thumb:

Steering box is tight to the frame. Loose pitman arm is as tight as can be. And spacers are put into the leaf pack so the tie rod is no longer binding on the spring (thanks Larry). Truck is steering much better. Now I need to get te truck stopping better. Maybe tomorrow I can pull the master cylinder and brake booster and upgrade to the 1 ton stuff. I will also be adding extended brake lines too.

Also realized I need new seats and new shocks.

Nice buddy, good to see you working on this thing.

When you bring it home so you can work on it after work?

You figure out a way to mount that shim and still get the centering pin to work?

I was able to go around the corner to the parts shop and grab some longer pins. Then I just put the Shim inside the leaf pack.

Got the new master cylinder installed. Pedal already feels way better and I haven't even bleed the brakes yet.
Plans is to replace the front brakelines with the extended brake lines and then bleed them.
Once brakes are bled and driver seat is back in I am going to be hitting up Niagra rim. Next step after that is new shocks.

ITS ALIVE. With help from Ryan I finally got my brakes bled and the blazer stops. I am now ready to wheel.

Next step is to get it flexed out to do some measurements so new shocks.

Post Re: CJ's 1989 K5 Blazer
First need to fix the brakes. Tried to adjust the pedal but it isn't adjustable like justins diagram had shown. Also opened the master cylinder and the front ballast was empty. I also need to flex it out and measure for shocks.
