Default 1999 Chevy Blazer; Torsion Bar

Hi, I've been reading around about how I could raise my blazer up a little bit by adjusting the torsion bar. I want to lift it up. I was excited to try it out but when I went to go look for it. I couldn't find it anywhere under my blazer at all..Why doesn't my blazer have one and years before 99 and after 99 have torsion bars?? NEED HELP!!!

Welcome to the forum. Is yours 4 wheel drive? They use a torsion bar instead of a coil spring.

How?? Other blazers have it. I was trying to find the torsion bar to give my blazer a lift. If there is no bar on my blazer then how do I lift it?

Torsion bars are only on 4WD Blazers. You have a 2WD, so there are no torsion bars. You have coil springs on the front suspension instead.

Coil spring spacers, taller coil springs, lift spindles, floor jack... Although I've never personally seen one for a 2wd, a full bracket lift that drops the control arms down may be available, at a price. Nothing as cheap and simple as adjusting the torsion bars on a 4x4 unfortunately though.
