I have had my 2000 blazer for 3 years and done nothing to it, it is not a 4wd but I would like to give it a little lift. Would like any input possible or any ideas. I see a lot of nice Blazers here and just need a shove in the right direction.

Welcome to the forum...You are in the right place for sure..So many great guys and a few gals on here that are full of knowledge.. The cheapest lift you may want to consider is getting some lift shackles and cranking the Torsion bars a bit..I am running this set up at the moment and it lifted me 2 in the rear and 1.5 up front and leveled me out..I will be putting on a 2inch body lift in the near future... Once you get looking around the site you will realize you will have so much to process...again welcome..

sorry I didn't read your post very well I thought you were 4wd...with a 2 wheel drive I am not 100% sure I think it involves possible spindles or coil spacers and then a different set up in the rear..I`m sure someone with better knowledge will chime in soon and give you the info you need..

like blazin said, you can do lift spindles and i am pretty sure that you can do some coil spacers in the front. as far as the rear goes, same thing, just change out the shackles.

You can't do coil spacers in the front, the spring dosnt seatin the coil bucket properly if you do. If it were me, and I had the $$$ I'd check eBay for new coils and shackles. If you can afford them, lift spindles are the way to go up front. Most I've seen are 3.5" of lift, so grab a set of 2" coils, a set of spindles, and find a rear axle flip kit.

Oh, and I think I've read on another forum (s10forum.com) in the 2wd lifting section over there, that the spindles only work on blazers with single piston calipers. You may wanna check around on there and double check that, though.
