lifting a blazer

I have an 88 Jeep Cherokee and the master cylinder went out once again and ive decided to get a blazer(provided I find a good deal). I do want to lift it if I get it though. Are there any cheaper 4" lift kits? I dont necessarily need a suspension lift, but i'de like to fit in 33" tires eventually. I guess after 31" the axles would need to be regeared right?

I have some other questions too. What kind of axles does a blazer have on it? Does the front of a blazer use coils for the suspension or some other means? And if I did a 4" lift what else needs to be done(as in lowering the transfercase, control arms....) Thanks in advance.

Re: lifting a blazer

Have you done a search? The S10 Blazer uses torsion bars in the front. To fit 33"s without a suspension lift, you'll need a body lift, and probably have to cut the fenders.
They have a GM 10 bolt in the rear, and IFS in the front.

Re: lifting a blazer

You can get 3.5 inch spindles from fabtech. I think you can only fit 31" tires on that tho so good luck getting 33" to fit on anything less than like 6" w/out fender flares

Re: lifting a blazer

I had a 97 Blazer LS 4x4. It took a rough country 2" SL and a 2" BL to make enough room for 32" AT's. The frount tires would rub on the frame when I cutit hard to the right or left with the back inside of the tire. An off set wheel could of easly fixed the problem. Now that is four inches fender clearence and the tires filled the fenders realy well and the blazer sat a little higher than a Z-R2. After I lifted it the tierod ends were atached and a hard angle and woreout bushings really quick. It did get me back to all the places I did and didn't need to go with little trouble at all.

Re: lifting a blazer

for me to fit 33's i got a 2" superlift susp a 2" body lift and cut and hammered on the corners of the fenders, also the airdam had to go. I also put 1.25" wheel spacers on with wider rims. believe me it aint cheap and you wont do it for cheap either. unless you fabricate all the parts yourself. www.angelfire.com/mech/jimmy96
