Re: ? about 31\'s

Not sure about when the body change took place, but my 85 blazers has 31x10.5 swampers on it. All I used was a 3 inch body lift. I had to cut out a little of the inner fender and smack the back edge of the front fender with a hammer. It all still looks factory. I do get a bit of tire rub if I get her twisted pretty good or hit a really hard bump. Think I can fix that with a torsion bar tweek. The reason i went with the body lift is to keep the center of gravity a little lower. You only lift the weight of the body instead of the whole truck, plus you are looking at $85 for a body lift compaired to the $1500 - $2000 for a suspention lift. Hope this helps.

Re: ? about 31\'s

If you have stock rims the easiest way to fit 31x10.50s would be to crank up the torsion bars and buy the $15 shackles to put on the back. You would only rub your frame or swar bar at full lock. They'd be crammed in there. Or a 2-3" body lift will do the same thing
Heck I've got a 3" body and the tbar lift and I only hit the fender on one side on bumps and turns. (The a-arm bushing is bad so the a-arm moves) I've also got 15x8s so my tires stick out some...

To be specific, http://S10-4X4.COM/HitFit/. If you click on "Technical" in the menu that will bring you to all the tech articles there is an article that goes into depth about the T-bar crank ("easy 2-3" lift I think it's called).

Good luck
