Then reassemble everything without pulling the drive shaft out again.

What is the gear ratio in a 1971 blazer 4x4?

It depends on a few things. If it came with a v6 or the standard v8 (307) it would have a 3.73 rearend. If it came with the 350 option it would have a 3.07 rearend. Although the 4.11 was an option on the 2 wheel drive, it was not offered in the 4wd. The 3.73 was an option to be ordered though and was a common upgrade for those with a 350 especially if it is AC equipped. Additional thoughts to keep in mind. this vehicle is 42 years old and quite possible that someone has changed out the gears in the rearend. Here is how you know for sure: Park your Blazer on a level surface. Chock the front wheels securely. Lift the rearend of the vehicle with a jack. Put the vehicle in neutral. Mark a spot on your rear tire. Mark a spot on your drive shaft. Get under the behicle and turn the drive shaft. Stop in one turn intervals to see how far your tire has turned. The number of revolutions your drive shaft needs to make to produce one full tire revolution is your gear ratio. Example a little over 3 turns of the drive shaft to make a complete tire revolution means you have a 3.07 ratio. if it is about 3 3/4 then it is the 3.73 rearend. Good luck!
