2" Body Lift and 31" tires are the only differences if I remember correctly compared to your LS... Don't know the width though, I suspect 31x9.50" though. That and maybe a locker in the back.

Different frames, different width axles, etc. Buy a ZR2 if that's what you want.

Maybe I did not ask the right question. Really All I want to do is to get the ground clearence up on the LS package to that of a ZR2 or a tad more. And what would be required to attian this clearence.

That'll get you the same height-ish, you can tighten the bolts on the front torsion bars to lift the front 1.5", any more than that in the front though and you'll start wearing stuff out prematurely.
