Downsizing soon, what should i look for?
Hey everyone, due to money problems and other events outside my control, I will soon be downsizing from my '89 k2500. I am wanting to get a blazer, preferably '95 or newer, but had a couple questions to help in my search. My questions are what would be a decent amount of miles, and are there any known problems with blazers that I should investigate on any potential buys? Also, I'm hoping with a blazer my insurance will decrease from the $140 I pay for my truck so was wondering what you guys pay? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Check to see if it has the spider assembly injectors, i had a 94 with that style injectors. I had constant problems, if one goes bad you have to replace them all. It has something to do with the vortec engine during that time period.

I have recently had to give up my 84' K5 because it would no longer pass inspection in my area. It's not ideal, but I just went ahead and bought a nice economical family sedan. I figured if it was time to give up MY TRUCK, I shouldn't try to replace with something lesser. I just decided to basically go in the opposite direction. I'm not saying it was the right thing to do, but it kept me from buying another truck and not being as happy as I was in MY TRUCK.
