    If you've got the cash and the time I'd go with a 3 link setup. The leaf setup will work but (depending on the roads in your area) The ride will be much better with a three link. I know the rear of my blazer, I get a little wheel hop over large bumps. Not much more than the stock setup. Also If your going to c-notch it I'd go with a taller block 3" or 4". Here is a link to a cool 2 link setup. It's cheap but it will require major mods to the floor of your Blazer.

    Your lookin at major cutting of the floor to clear the Super C-notch and also to clear the bag mounts. It should lay frame. Ride will also be better(no leafs).

    And if you are real crafty you can always put back what you cut if you dont like it.

    Its the look that matters.

    Some people never understand the time and energy but they love the laid out look.

    LowPSI- are you talking about a Big notch or the litle notch. the one I was gunna get only moves up a inch or two. I'm not planing on lay'n frame first time around. I just want to grt it to lower and later I will up grade to a 4-link and bigger notches. so do I need to get the bigger blocks?

    They only sell that 2 link for s10 pickups. Fabrication to make it fit into a blazer, like PSI said, would be a bitch. You would get quite a bit more lift out of that setup though. My favorite is triangle 3-link setups, I will end up making my own. The cost of buying linkage out weighs the actual advantages of it. It's not worth upgrading from mono-leaf to link unless you are going to show.
    Advantages:
    Better side-to-side
    Sometimes 2-3 more inches of lift
    Slightly faster drop

    Disadvantages:
    $600
    $1000 installed


    Blue, your notch will be a problem, just make sure you get the fuel lines away from the frame before you start cutting (left side).

    About the fuel lines. Are they gunna be metal tubes or rubber hoses? and also will they need to be competly relocated to do the notch or will they be able to fall back into plase sence the notch I'm getting is not taller than the frame?

    Also, would you suggest PV or Stainless fittings? I know the stainless is only a lil' more but saving a couple bucks here and there can help me get this done faster.
