1973 Chevy K5 Blazer | Summit Racing

Blazer Tag

Craig Artzner’s ’73 K5 Blazer and in his work at Summit Racing have one thing in common: attention to detail.

Craig’s full-top K5 Blazer started coming together in 2006. Although the previous owner had already made some nice upgrades, Craig had to make it his own. He added Trick Flow cylinder heads, Summit intake, Summit M2008 carburetor, Summit multi-spark digital ignition, Summit HEI distributor, Howard’s roller cam and lifters, and Hedman headers. He even developed a homemade lift system to remove and re-install the top in his home garage.

He applies the same attention to detail, creativity, and automotive knowledge used to build his Blazer to his role at Summit Racing. He creates 360-degree images, videos, and other multimedia to help customers better understand products and make the right buying decisions for their projects.

Be Ready for Any Adventure with Shocks and More from ICON Vehicle Dynamics

Summit Racing also offers over 20 different products from ICON Vehicle Dynamics. ICON Vehicle Dynamics suspension components for late-model trucks and Jeeps redefine the limits of those vehicles. From race-inspired shock absorbers to tubular control arms, leaf springs, coil springs, leveling kits, and much more, ICON products are thoroughly tested on the street, off-road, and in desert racing so they’re ready for any adventure you have in mind.

Multi-Rate Leaf Spring Packs

Icon Vehicle Dynamics Multi-Rate Leaf Spring Packs improve your truck’s overall ride quality and droop travel thanks to a decreased spring rate. If you need more load-carrying capability, an included add-a-leaf can be installed to increase the spring rate an additional 10% to 40% (depending on the kit) for hauling cargo, supporting rooftop tents, towing, etc. Tip inserts and leaf separators lessen friction, reduce noise, and increase ride comfort. Military-wrapped eyelets improve durability and strength for a long service life.

2.5 RR Extended Travel Bolt-In Coilover Kits

Icon Vehicle Dynamics 2.5 RR Extended Travel Bolt-In Coilover Kits are a great upgrade for the
front end of your truck. Large 2.5 inch diameter shock bodies with vehicle-specific valving and remote reservoirs reward you with excellent ride quality and increased wheel travel across a wide range of conditions. And if shock performance ever begins to suffer, the coilovers can be rebuilt to as-delivered specs at home. Mounting hardware and sway bar relocation brackets are included.

Delta Joint Tubular Upper Control Arms

• CNC-bent 1026 DOM steel tubing construction
• Zinc-plated housing for corrosion resistance
• CNC-machined bushing housings and sleeves
• Serviceable dual-stage bushings
• Built-in caster correction
• Grease seals to keep the elements out of the joints for longer life and noise-free operation
