    Ditto.
    As far as I know drop shackles are not made for our trucks.
    Bolt in some blocks and you'll be good to go.

    well start by taking out the body lift and sending the kit to me:D, then get some stock rear shackles(i may have some)......if they left the extreme rear leaf springs on then you should be sitting 1.5" lower than a stock blazer as for the front they may have only used lift springs
