Help! Lifting Blazer 6 inches; then what?
I have never lifted a truck before but I am pretty mechanically inclined so I am planning on doing everything myself. My dad owns a machine and welding shop so I will have all of the tools that I need.
I just bought a 89 Blazer and I am going to lift it, I was planning on lifting it about 6 inches and running 35's or 36's. Mostly it will be on the road with some occasional off-roading, mainly mud.
I know that I need to regear and extend brake lines and stuff like that, but what will I need to do for the following:
1) Steering modifications
2) Driveline angles, I know that I can shim the springs, but do I need to do more? What about lowering the transfer case? I have heard of people doing that. Would that be a good solution to keeping my angles good?
3) What about driveshafts, will they have to be lengthened? My dad owns a machine and weld shop, but he has never done stuff like that, but I figure that he could. What is involved in lengthening a driveshaft?
Thanks for any help
