lift - how high for 35s

How high should I go (4", 6" or higher) to use 35s (Baja Claw) with 86 Chevy Blazer K5?

Re: lift - how high for 35s

6" is fine.
4" w/ trimming will get ya there also.
6" front springs, 4" shackle flip, 2" spring or 4" front springs, 4" shackle flip, trimming. you could do it all kinds of ways but if you want all suspensiion no hacking and look good go with 6" Suspension.
Keep in mind though with 6" you'll have some steering and driveline mods that you wouldn't with 4".

Baja Claws arnet really 35's they measure like 32.5. Willywanter has some right Willys? I dont like Baja Claws anyway. Get some TSL's or BFG's or something. Hee hee.

I'd recomend 6" if you are going to wheel hard. If its for street use, trim the corners & go with a 4" lift. With a 6", you may have to lengthen the front drive shaft.
