if you have air conditioning you will need to take it to a garage and recover the r134, you will need to remove the dash to allow you to remove the heater box, it's an ugly job, I've done a dozen or so and can do it in about 6 hours now, the first time it was closer to 11 hrs, good luck

yes you have to drop the tank. you will also need a fuel line tool to unhook the fuel lines. before you drop the tank see if tou can reach and wiggle the electrical connection on the top of the tank. these pumps have a pigtail issue. please rate

Raise vehicle up on jack stands so that the stands are under the lower controll arms and the suspension is "loaded" Remove the front tire(s) (if you break the torque on the nuts while the wheel is still on the ground it helps, but do not loosen them completely as you will be looking for new rims and wheel studs too). Place a drift or some other suitable object in one of the brake rotor vanes so that it will hit the brake caliper and stop the rotor from moving and remove the CV shaft nut (it's a big ****** make sure you have the right socket on hand before getting to this point). Next remove the brake caliper and rotor then undo the wheel bearing retaining bolts and remove the wheel bearing. This should give you enough room to move the axle shaft back and up so you can work on the ball joint. If you've had ball joints replaced before just unbolt the ones that are installed and using a pickle fork, or a block of wood and a hammer, drive the ball joint stud from the knuckle. (make sure to support the upper control arm so it doesn't drop down on you when you do this) If you are working on original ball joints then I reccomend placing a block of wood or something else that will protect the cv boots from drill bits ect and drill out the rivets holding the ball joint in place. then remove in the same manner indicated in the previous paragraph. installation is pretty much the reverse of removal and don't forget to torque your cv shaft nut I have a 1999 and the manual specs 103FTlbs... This is a critical torque as it helps preload your wheel bearing. Too high and you'll burn them up, too low and they'll be loose and wear out.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your directions this will help very much."
try putting it in neutral while it's running with foot on the brake then push 4 hi or 4 lo it should switch over then. Had the same problem on my 98 blazer the other day.

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
Open the drain plug at the bottom passenger-side section of the radiator. Open the radiator cap, and let the fluid drain until empty.
Unsnap and remove the front dash panel. Unscrew and remove the bottom panel and unbolt the main dashboard harness from the firewall at the windshield. Take out the radio, gauges and most of the switches and accessories to gain access to the main bolts.
Remove the coolant overflow tank, main computer and blower-fan housing from the passenger-side engine compartment. This may require several sizes of sockets, socket extensions and a Phillips head screwdriver. The computer will uncouple from the truck in the rear of its housing.
Uncouple the heater core hoses from the core by loosening the hose clamps.
Remove the bolts on the interior, between the dashboard and firewall, and the two bolts in the engine compartment behind the main computer. On some models, these bolts can be between the passenger-side fender and the engine bay.
Slide the heater core out toward the windshield.
