    you can put all stock stuff back on it to get it to stock height, then shackles for the rear with raise it more, for the front I'm not sure........we mostly like things low here

    I'm thinking 2" springs, 2" shackles, and a 2" body lift. Any ideas on what tire size I can run and what back spacing on the wheels? Thanks for any all help!

    This is all personal opinion, but I would stay away from a BL. These blazers show enough frame as it is. Anymore frame just makes them look real goofy. You can find 2" springs, 3" spindles, shackles (or helper bags & a block like I have on my fullsize). You could fit a 31" maybe a 33" tire with a little trimming.

    Yeah, you are right. They do show enough frame already. Thanks for the advice I think I will stay away from the body lift. So with a 2" lift springs and 2" shackles I can run a 31" with no problem? what about my xwheels will they work? 31"x?? Sorry for all the questions but everything I've ever owned I lowered so this is all new to me. Thanks again.
