Default S10 Blazer project hlep

Im stuck between deciding to lift my 02 2wd Chevy Blazer. Would it be worth it even though it is only 2wd? I plan to do small offroad rides, nothing serious. I want to do between 6in-8in lift with 33in tires, somthing in that general range.
Let me know what you guys think or what you have done.
Thanks!!

you might be better off with a 2" body lift and some 31's


i have a 4x and it took me 9" of lift and some trimming to get 33's on it.
2" body lift, 5" bds lift and 2" shackles and 1.5" t-crank.

What if I just did a 5in lift on it, and put 32in tires? What all would I have to do to make that lift work?

i dont know of many options for a 2wd.
you need to search, try lift spindles and taller springs up front.
for the rear look for new leaf perches to do a spring over axle conversion.
that would net you 5" in the rear of the vehicle no problem.
you have some homework to do.

2wd Lift Info! - S-10 Forum
You can find more info on 2wd lifts here. Same suspension as S-10's. Dont see to many lifted 2wd blazers on this site.
