Default My 99 4x4 after 1.5" Torsion/Shackle Lift

Here's my 99 Blazer 4x4 4 door LS!

I just lifted the front via Torsion 1.5" and the rear with shackles in an attempt to help my tires not rub soo much while turning. 1.5" did actually help a lot. I did need to cut a small amount from the rear of the front fender well but the tires fit much better. They are only 30's but with the backspacing of 4" on my wheels and 1.25" adapters to make them fit, they rubbed really bad before this lift.

I of course went to get an alignment after but sadly Les Schwab wasn't able to get it perfect because of the amount of torsion adjustment I made. My alignment is still just barely out of the desired range but I plan to either get some longer upper control arms or offset upper ball joints to get another degree of adjustment in my camber

Here is my Blazer BEFORE THE LIFT

AND NOW AFTER!

I've still got a lot planned for here and may eventually do a 2" body lift once my tires wear out. Then ill lift it more and replace them with 31's which would look nice on there with 2" more lift

4 in back space rims with 1 1/4 adapters equals, my guess 2.75 back space. On a truck that needs six. Soo you raised it up above limit and hacked the fender a little for tire clearance. And now you want longer upper arms to align the thing. There is a trend happening here. But I do like the red bumper hooks.

Im aware of all the wear it can cause. I probably wont keep these rims on it forever. They were given to me by a customer and i hated the stock rims so i put them on. I also own a repair shop with my dad and brother so i get parts super cheap and put them on myself
